Are we to see the end of the Demon Accords in the next year or so (2 or 3 more books)? Would be sorry to see them go but would understand. Great start on “Shadows of Montshire”.June 4, 2020 at 8:43 pm #29385DoctorChildParticipant
Who knows if it will be. Only the author.June 4, 2020 at 9:31 pm #29386cinjinnParticipant
It depends, of course, on John, but it also depends on how many more stories there are to tell. I’m hoping for a few more.June 5, 2020 at 12:32 pm #29389Grumpy BearParticipant
I have no idea when the story will end, as that’s up to the author. It’s been a pretty good run so far, but I feel the story is wearing thin and nearing the end.
Now everything is about Declan, and that is pushing me away from the series. Don’t get me wrong, I like Declans character, but it’s the Demon Accords not the Declan Accords.
Declan is the main protagonist in, Executable, and College Arcane, which makes sense. Then he gets half of God Hammer, and Rogues. Then it’s back to Declan in Summer Reign AND Winterfall. Snake Eyes was fairly balanced thankfully, but then we got Demon Divine, another Declan centric book.
Caeco gets a book and most of the conversations in the story are where’s Declan, what’s he doing, what’s he thinking… sigh. And more of the same old “why do these people have this much power arguments and how can we take it from them or put them in their place”, and more politicians being politicians. We get it, we got it pretty clearly in book 2. Sixteen books in I just skip those parts.
Now we get the long awaited Tanya POV book and it felt like more of the same, where’s Declan, what’s he doing, what’s he thinking… sigh.
In his interview Mr. Conroe said his favorite character right now is Declan. We can tell, and the series is hurting because of it, at least in my opinion.
I’m not a published author, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night, so take my opinion for what it’s worth, which is nothing. It’s just my opinion.
All in all, The Demon Accords is still one of my favorite series and I go back and read and listen to it all the time. Mr Conroe has a talent for descriptive writing that is a joy to read and I wish him all the success he deserves.June 10, 2020 at 4:36 pm #29397gregParticipant
Grumpy bear I have to agree with you 100%June 11, 2020 at 6:50 am #29398WolfmanParticipant
Although I didn’t care for the shift from Chris to Declan in Executable, I’ve since come around to enjoying the books written from his point of view. But I think the change in recent books to focus more and more on Declan and Omega are a direct result of the whole Vorsook storyline. Basically, Declan’s abilities are much more effective against the Vorsook than Chris’. That makes Declan their Big Gun and puts Chris in more of a support role.
Of course, if the demons come back into play, that would change the dynamic. One thing that sticks in my mind is how both the demon prince and the Summer Queen referred to the Vorsook as the Ancient Enemy. Does that mean there could be some sort of human-elf-demon alliance somewhere in our future? That would be something to see.June 11, 2020 at 12:56 pm #29401DoctorChildParticipant
