24 quotes from John Conroe: 'I'm a firm believer in letting them wonder if you're an idiot, rather than speaking too quickly and removing all doubt. 'I have no Native American heritage, but I had decided as a child that my spirit guide animal would be a bear. We were both loners and fighters, at least that's how I looked at it. I don't know how the Great Bear felt about it, as I had never given him the option to say n., and 'We can’t just be positioned to survive, but to thrive. To ride this wave of knowledge into our future I'm a firm believer in letting them wonder if you're an idiot, rather than speaking too quickly and removing all doubt. John Conroe, God Touched.

All morning I had been noticing odors, the wet leaves, dead worms, diesel fumes, garbage, pipe tobacco, women’s' perfume, and a thousand separate foods. By the time I hit my apartment door, I was too hungry to shower, opting to eat my takeout first.

John Conroe's "God Touched (The Demon Accords Book 1)" is a pleasant surprise. I picked it up on a whim and found a pretty good Action Fantasy story. It reminds me a bit of Jim Butcher's "Dresden" series if Dresden were an action figure instead of a private eye/wizard. I'm not sure if it's an homage to Butcher/Dresden, but Conroe has borrowed quite a few elements from Dresden's universe and used them here. The story is entirely its own, though. The writing, universe, characters, plot, and pacing are all good. My only significant issue is that it edges slightly into a young male wish fulfillment type of story. But, it's not an overriding theme. One odd thing that I noticed in the version I read is that there's not formatting for chapter headings: no page breaks, no paragraph marks, no additional line spacing, no font changes. Nothing significant, just surprising. Anyway, I'm officially rating it at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5. But, I'd really like to drop it down half a star to 3-1/2 stars because of the young male trend.

Despise the overwhelmingly positive reviews, this actually isn't a very good story. The author has made the classic novice mistake of setting up interesting characters and setting without interesting conflict. Or hardly any conflict at all, really.
The story follows a formula: the magic hero encounters a threat, he dispatches it with ease, and everyone around him is disproportionately grateful. Rinse and repeat. The character does not encounter failure, setback or bad luck. When faced with threats he cannot resolve, he encounters preposterously good luck.
The romance is equally shallow. Before the book, the magic hero had been celibate because he does not want his lovers to become targets. But the first woman he saves is a sexy wealthy vampire princess virgin who immediately falls in love with him. Since she had already been targeted by demons, his conscience is clear to have hot monkey sex. The only hiccup in their mystic soul bond relationship -the only gripping moment!- is when the vampire princess tells him it's over and thanks for all the fish in order to protect him. The dramatic potential is *immediately* spoiled by two characters assuring the hero that she doesn't mean it, she's being manipulated, blah blah blah.
So let's recap. This rookie cop is a millionaire with a trust fund, banishes demons with unique senses and abilities, has a hot, rich vampire girlfriend and a giant invisible bear buddy, is slowly turning into a superhero... and we are supposed to believe this dude thinks God has it out for him???
This isn't a novel, its a wish fulfillment checklist.

I was looking for something similar to Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files" series and ended up reading the first 4 books of this series => I will post this same review for all 4 of them.

I enjoyed a lot the first 3 books - a steady pace, some romance but never overdoing it, a lot of action and some interesting concepts & names & informations => 5 stars and I think I might read them again in the future.
For my taste they're not as detailed and funny and creative as Jim Butcher's series, but still, they were quite light (although I get crazy when the 2 main characters are separated) and enjoyable.

I quite liked the first half of the 4th book (mainly when the main chars were doing their job as "rovers" in the wilderness), but then things started going downhill: some of the vampires were quite stupid, the main character still had his personality problems, there were a lot of open questions and the book itself was open-ended.

Therefore, 5 stars for the first 3 books (you could read only those ones and then stop), but only 3 stars to the fourth mostly because of the bad 2nd half and the bad & open-ended ending.
For the time being I'm taking a break from these series.

This book started off really great - I read the free sample and then bought the book when I was finished with that. Chris is a special exorcist. He's not sure how he does what he does, but he hasn't met a demon that can withstand him yet. However, until the opening he's never realized that there were vampires and werewolves and other magical creatures out there too.

Once we get past the initial shock of "it's all true!", the story stagnates. There seemed to be an interesting plot laid down at the beginning, but it's left lying abandoned once it's served the purpose of getting Chris together with his trophy vampire girlfriend.

After that it descends quickly into wish fulfilment. Chris is handsome, but doesn't realize how handsome he is until he's already scored the hot vampire girlfriend and then a bunch of other women start hitting on him. He can do all the things, usually without even trying. Everything comes easily to him and the book from that point on it just explanations of how wonderful he is. Pass.

What can happen in the Big Apple.

***spoiler _ Gee profanity but it flavors the story.***

Let's see? Vampires, check. Werewolves, check. Demonic possessions, check and a one man wrecking crew who doesn't know his strengths, Bang On!.

Absolutely enjoyed the book, had a hard time putting it down the first time and have read it 3 times to savor the story. I really enjoyed the author's ideas on "life forces."

I'm usually one to detract from my rating for typos and grammar but for this story. No way. Truly enjoyed the ride and did it again.

Tried it, but not my cup of tea. Don't feel that there is enough here in the novel, and way too much focus on the relationship of the main character with the girl. It presents itself as a story without much depth to me, due to that.

I realize the author seems fairly, popular...so I would pose a probable conclusion that the style of John Conroe, is simply not to my personal taste.

Will say that I felt the overall editing of the novel was well done.
