    Wow! This is awesome. Get ready for biblical end times with demons and witches and satyrs.

    Blog ReviewThis is one interesting story. There is action aplenty and a world of diverse supernatural beings who are flawed but intriguing. While the characters haven’t quite been able to grab me fully, and I can’t say I love any character in particular, the para/fantasy story pulled me in and I’m really fascinated to see what they do and where they take me next. It is so hard to find quality paranormal/ fantasy reading of the queer variety, especially ones that are fascinating and whisper [...]

    _____________________"But this is what I am bid to do. I am Dati Amon, a D'Alae, and we gather back the children who belong to us."_____________________This is a well-executed story of conflict, horror, magic, and desire. Shape-shifters, witches, demons, creepy burrowing insects, elementals, satyrs and even a deliciously evil succubus make for a colourful cast of characters to guide readers through a beautifully described series of paranormal events, culminating in a satisfying end to Book I of [...]

    I received an ARC from the author for a challenge.I give this book 4.5 stars, I may have been a bit more generous in rounding that up because I received a free copy. This is not really something that I would typically read, although I do want to follow the rest of the trilogy for its conclusion now. It was very dark. Told from a first person perspective, occasionally switching characters between clearly marked chapters but not too confusing. Mostly from the perspective of Dati, a demon that harv [...]

  • J.C. Long

    This is an incredible, INCREDIBLE read. I was hooked from the very beginning. The opening line, such a basic thing, just drew me in and I knew I wasn't going to get out of the spell of this book until it was finished.The characters are smart, sharp, and vivid. Despite the plethora of supernatural beings they all felt so very real to me. I really loved the dynamics between all of the characters--though a few were a little more flat than the others, though that doesn't mean they were by any means [...]

    I was gifted an ARC for an honest and fair review.Daimonion is many things. The first book in The Apocalypse trilogy, a debut novel, and a blood-spattered, gory quest for one demon who struggles with the whole “killing kids” thing. The book is told in the first person, and has more than one protagonist, but it works because they are each given a chapter, clearly marked. This can go horribly wrong, but not in this case.Dati is the main character, a demon who is a bit hapless, to be honest. De [...]

    If you are into dark urban fantasy, this is bound to become one of your favorite books this year. Demons, white witches, shape shifters, guard dogs made of stone and what not, thrown in a magic cauldron from where J.P. Jackson pulls the threads to entwine this action packed story. You'd think a demon planing to destroy the world is cliched but this book will make you think again because even though it is a known topic, the new ways it is explored makes it really intriguing. Many points of view a [...]

    **I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review**Horror is not usually my genre, but I had so much gleeful, dark fun reading DAIMONION that I didn't care. J. P Jackson has created a kind of neutral evil Scooby Gang that is an absolute blast to get to know.  I immediately developed a soft spot for Dati Amon, the D'Alae, a winged demon. He serves a mysterious, vile creature who holds part of his soul captive. Dati's mutual obsession with Alyx, a dark young man he should have harve [...]

  • Ryane

    This book was provided by JP Jackson and read on behalf of Thorns & Ink.This is a brilliant take on the “end times” theme. This story has a Clive Barker feel to it. A little gory and a little profound. Dark, grotesque, and horrific. I was riveted. The lovely twist in this book is the infatuation. Very slight of hand by Mr. Jackson. The ominous foreboding is weighty and well-handled throughout the book.The entire plot is well done. I am not a fan of total gore. This has enough gore to kee [...]

    **I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review**To start off, I will preface by saying I don't normally read this sort of book - demons, paranormal fantasy, etc - so bear that in mind. :)The creative elements in this book are really top notch, populated with a cast of characters that thrill, entrance, and intrigue. I mean, there's a sexy bestial satyr with a large penis, dark witches and healers, stone guard dogs, and spells, magic, and demons everywhere! If this sounds like the kind of ele [...]

  • Kathryn

    Perhaps closer to a 4.5 star rating, overall, as this book was very enjoyable and quite different from anything else I have read.I didn't know what this book was going in, and perhaps it's good that I didn't. The darkness to the story caught me by surprise, but it was a good one - the author pulls no punches within the pages, and it was incredibly refreshing to find a story dealing with such heavy material (demons, the end of the world, etc.) that didn't skate over the very obvious implications [...]

  • Hannah Carmack

    "If a corpse could feel its body decaying, that was exactly how the dark felt as it took over."I am a sucker for a good m/m read and this did not disappoint. The concept is new and cool. I enjoyed a majority of the characters, especially Alyx. The pacing is strong, but I feel the strongest part of Daimonion is the writing. The imagery is tight and each sentence easily flows into the next. When the book is broken down to a literature-based level if passes with flying colors. This is a fast, fun r [...]

  • S.T.

    I love this book. I'm a huge fan of dark themes, so this was right up my alley. The descriptions were glorious. I love the visuals that conjured up inside my head while reading this. If you love demons and dark themes, give this one a try!

  • Raj

    You going to need a really strong stomach to survive this trip into supernatural darkness where demons of all species are the apex predators and man is just flesh to satiate the uncontrollable hunger of the beast.That aside this book is just bloody glorious in it's carnage as evil becomes the new good in an effort to halt a forth coming apocalypse that's about to bring hell on earth.This book is apparently the first of a trilogy with "Nephalem" being the next.

  • Joyfully Jay

    A Joyfully Jay review. 3.5 starsThe plot of the story, as evidenced from the series name, lets us know that there’s going to be a bit of a slog through the muck and the mire to the end of the book. Apocolypses are rarely happy events, after all, and this one — shaped by Silenus and the elemental witch, Aradia — took a sharp left away from happy town and headed all the way into darkness and despair. And that’s a good thing. The author has a vivid imagination and the world building in this [...]

  • C.L.

    3.5 starsTo be totally up front, I usually don't read books like this. I guess I was expecting something a little different than what the book turned out to be in the end (I was expecting something more romance and got more violence). It was a littlem to put this nicelyoss for my taste. I'm not big on descriptions of bloody/horror scenes and the like so that wasn't really to my liking but if it's your thing more power to you. :D They were well done just not my thing really.Okay, so the overall s [...]

    I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.3.5This book was a solid introduction to what could be an engaging and imaginative trilogy. There were many things to enjoy about this book. For example, the world-building seemed well thought out and not only included many paranormal/supernatural creatures but an interesting take on their origin/mythology and powers, and the writing style is succinct yet descriptive. Moreover, it was interesting that while many of the characters in the [...]

  • Isabelle Adler

    4.5 starsThis book is an exceptional work of queer horror fiction. I loved Mr. Jackson's voice and writing style, and the language was rich and evocative. The plot was mostly fast-paced, and had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. It's very difficult to make a story involving such profoundly flawed characters so gripping, so kudos to the author for doing just that. None of these guys are especially nice or identifiable, but somehow I cared about what happens to them.The character I lik [...]

  • blub

    I'm finding it hard to put into words how fascinating this book . Once I started to read I didn't want to stop. I enjoyed learning about the different types of demons, what the Daimonion were and ultimately how each character was tied to the other. The plot was ever thickening and when you didn't think you could be shocked anymore, more details would be revealed effectively drawing the reader in. There were a lot of grotesque moments in the book but I think that was part of the appeal. There was [...]

    I have to say I was blown away by this being JP Jackson's debut novel. The writing is intense. This story is a dark, gruesome, quirky, and unique story. I'm in love. You can see my full review here: christinasbookshelf/2017/0

  • Olga

    It is a very solid plot and very well written story line. My problem is the speede reading comprehension can't keep up with all the action. It drops one stone after another and tired me out. It's like one of those movies where they try to push so much information in the movie that i start to lose attention.The book is missing breaks for the reader.

  • Lina

    I had a hard time with this one. I think I wanted to like it more than I did, because the writing was really tight and it was clear to me that the author is extremely skilled. The world itself was really interesting and I wanted to know what would happen, especially with Dati, who I was invested in from the beginning.And then the POV changed. Over and over again. The POV shifts felt unnecessary and while they weren't poorly done, I felt like the work was unfocused and the novel didn't want to co [...]

    jksjsjs i wrote a review and it was deleted sksksksssince i’m lazy, im just going to leave off of where i started and maybe later i’ll type it again. (OKAY THIS MAKES MY REVIEW LOOK SO NEGATIVE OML. ITS A GOOD BOOK I SWEAR, THERE ARE SOOOOO MANY GOOD THINGS ABIUT IT BUT I JSUT DINT WANT TO TYPE IT AGAIN UHHhhhjGhh) the plot is amazing. however, there are a few little things that i find to detract from the book, one such thing being the relationship between Dati and Alyx. i do admit, they do [...]

  • Dan

    I wanted to like this book. The whole time I was reading I desperately told myself that it would get better. After all, based on the reviews, a lot of people found this book really appealing. In the end, I have to say, this book was just not for me. The writing had an unsettling mix of short, choppy narration paired with exposition-heavy dialogue between the characters. With the multiple POV shifts, between characters and between first and third person and sometimes even in the same chapter, it [...]

  • Amy

    Wow. I might have to sleep with the light on! Just kidding, sort of. What vivid imagery! (Think The Walking Dead type of gruesome on steroids) With that being said, folks, this is not a romance. The title of the book references The Apocalypse, so if you want roses this is the wrong book for you. But you would be missing out. There is definitely a relationship brewing between Dati and Alyx, and I cannot wait to see that play out (if it does). Alyx needs to acclimate to his new reality, which is n [...]

  • M.D.

    I’m not a big fan of dark urban fantasy and when it comes to demons and evil creatures I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book. I was worried this was going to be slaughter fest, but it wasn’t. Yep, there were some icky parts but nothing that was over the top. I found the character of Dati interesting and compelling and someone I wanted to learn more about. All the characters were interesting and different I especially liked Hemmingway (I think I spelled that right). When it came to th [...]
