Quotes & Awards

  • “Witty, dark, and moving.” 

    Cassandra Clare, New York Times bestselling author

  • “An undercurrent of wit and subtle sarcasm turns this dark story of demons, magic, and dysfunctional families into an affecting and fun read.” 

    School Library Journal

  • “This delicious mix of magic, conflicted romance, and trust issues follows The Demon’s Lexicon, but here Brennan’s writing is stronger and more confident.” 

    Booklist

  • “Plots thicken, characters deepen and snark is bantered with witty abandon in this dark fantasy sequel to The Demon’s Lexicon… Not to be missed.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 2/4/2014

    " I loved this book. The only thing I had problems with is the love triangle involving two brothers. I just think this is unlikely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Moore | 1/29/2014

    " Told from a different characters POV than the first, it may be possible that the Demons Covenant is better than Lexicon. The characters become much more developed and the end is guaranteed to leave you desperate for more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DeAnn | 1/8/2014

    " Honestly, part of me wants to give this book only 2 stars - but when I take the time to actually reflect on the book I feel that it does deserve a little more - of course, I would prefer to just give it 2.5 stars. There are moments where I feel like the author has just jumped from one action to the next, not showing how the character got into that next position. It was kind of frustrating. In some ways I liked this book better than the first since it was told from Mae's point-of-view but I think I was expecting a little more. I think my favorite parts were the journal entries because I like understanding the history that led to the characters' development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angely | 12/19/2013

    " read it a while ago... i missed Nick's point of view but it was a great book, can't wait for the third installment "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 12/18/2013

    " 4.25 - love Nick and Alan and Jamie but had a little bit of a hard time connecting with Mae. Also, the love square/pentagon got to be a bit much at times. But overall, enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/9/2013

    " I am always right! Unless I am mislead. In conclusion, read this book. It's got all the magic and sibling strife of the first book, but with more making-out. Also with golf club wielding mothers and knife fights. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 10/30/2013

    " Yet again, all the teasing forshadowing is perfectly clear only in retrospect. The morbid humor is also highly quotable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shera | 10/28/2013

    " I actually started but stopped reading everything - so it really only took me a week or so to read. I liked it better than the first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 8/10/2013

    " I love Sarah Rees Brennan's humor and how three-dimensional her characters are, good and evil all intermingled. I've gone straight on to book three and honestly, I really don't want this series to end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yiling | 6/22/2013

    " Loved it! The first one was ok, but this one was amazing! Can't wait for the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 3/26/2013

    " I think I liked this even better than the first. Mae is a charismatic narrator. (Unlike Nick, who now that I think about it, must have been very difficult to write.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 11/28/2012

    " This book was harder to get into than the first book. I enjoyed it, but I felt that most of my time was spent looking for Nick and waiting to see if he was going to become more human. I feel like I need more, but am not sure if I want to continue reading this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trisha | 9/30/2012

    " i love this series. It has been a surprise enjoyment for me. so detailled, so rich, such fabulous writing. and funny too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 4/25/2012

    " i can see it... mr. nick ryves and mrs. mae ryves.... i cant be the only one. lol ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C.E. Murphy | 4/10/2012

    " The only reason I am not at this very moment reading the 3rd book in this series is because I have huge amounts of work to do and must keep SOMETHING as a reward. And it will be the appropriate reward, because I looooooved this one. I loved LEXICON, too, but I think I liked this one even better. <3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley - Book Labyrinth | 8/16/2011

    " I liked it even more than Book 1, I think. It totally draws you in, and I love the dynamics between all the characters. "

    " This book was utterly, and absolutely amazing! I think it was even better than the first one, and I really hope the second one comes out soon. Even if Nick and Mae don't end up together, Nick will still be my favorite character! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 4/1/2011

    " Much much better than the first. I actually like Nick sooo much more in this book. And gees, Sarah Rees Brennan is doing an excellent job of keeping the reader guessing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 4/1/2011

    " 2nd in ser; from Mae's POV, really good! Cant wait for 3rd "

About the Author
Author Sarah Rees Brennan

Sarah Rees Brennan was born and raised in Ireland by the sea, where her teachers valiantly tried to make her fluent in Irish—she finds it important people know it’s not called Gaelic—but she chose to read books under her desk in class instead. After living briefly in New York, earning a creative writing MA, and doing library work in Surrey, England, she returned to Dublin to write. Her Irish is still woeful, but she feels the books under the desk were worth it.
