    One thought on “God Touched”

    1. God TouchedThe Demon Accords, Book 1By: John ConroeNarrated by: James Patrick CroninThis book got me started on a book listen/read marathon. I love this series! It has a guy that can cast out demons better than a Priest, he can see demons, and other super naturals for what they are, and he was born that way. He saves a vampire, a hot sexy vampire, and he risks his life because she could have ripped him apart when she came to but they bonded. She gave him a small bit of her blood on her finger an [...]

    2. **SPOILER ALERT** Wow! I can't believe this book got so many stars. The hero, Christian is a hansom, athletic, wealthy, young, humble police with mild anger issues. The heroine is a astoundingly beautiful, sexy, athletic, wealthy vampire warrior princess who is in a walking catatonic state and, while surrounded by her very powerful and protective family is vulnerable enough to need the protection of the hero cop who just happens to save her life and bring her out of her catatonic state. Kinda li [...]

    3. I like this series; I hate this series. I'm on the fourth book right now. There are many bad things about this series, but they just don't quite outweigh the really great things about it.John Conroe is like the Michael Bay of urban fantasy. [first couple chapters spoilers ahead] The main character is the most powerful being on the planet, dates the most beautiful woman on the plant, has so much money he has no idea how much he has, and eats eight four course meals a day but looks like a muscle m [...]

    4. This was a fast paced and fun pulp UF. The worldbuilding was a bit simplistic and the plot and story was full of tropes and flaws but despite that the characters proved to be a likeable enough bunch and the story itself was engaging and fun. Chris Gordon is a young NYPD officer by day but a kick-ass demon hunter/exorcist by night! Chris has a natural gift that gives him the ability to banish demons back to Hell. He was been training to fight them since the ability first manifested in his childho [...]

    5. I made an account just to give this book a bad review. This book is twilight for boys. I can't think of a bigger insult for this story or a more accurate description. Someone please give me back the two hours of my life I wasted reading this trite.

    6. Read (2) times06/15/2014'Kay my phobia of William Shatner drove me back into the demon spree's welcoming arms AND THEY WERE *OH*-SO-WELCOMING. This book is even better than the last one I finished. When I had to go get water (the thirst the thiiiiiiiiiiirst it burns) I jumped on my bed for a while out of glee. I clapped my hands and fist-pumped multiple times. The book is just that unutterably cool.ON TO THE NEXT!!!!!(maybe I'll add more stuff later like what the book consists of and stuff XD)04 [...]

    7. I am going to talk about the series as a whole since that is usually what I am concerned about when I pick up a first book. The first four novels need a bit more editing. The writing style is actually quite fantastic. I thought the story would disappoint especially given how powerful Christian Gordan becomes, but it never gets ridiculous. There might be a fair amount of action but the ease of action does not detriment from the fun. To be honest the series technically is closer to 4 stars, except [...]

    8. God Touched Ok, where to start. This series doesn't really do anything that hasn't been done before, a human who falls in love with a vampire, and all the adventures that come with it. Where these books excelled is the characters, they are written in a way that when you finish a book it feels like your saying goodbye to good friends. As the protagonist falls in love, so do you as the reader. The characters are fleshed out in a way that makes you care about what happens to them.SynopsisThe follow [...]

    9. If you combined the bare bones of Guild Hunter, The Dresden Files, and Supernatural you would come very close to understanding the smile on my face as I review this book. Christian Gordon, NYPD, is our fair violet-eyed shredded-body hero that doesn't think too much of himself. As a child his entire family was killed by demons and soon after Chris discovers the only reason he survived is because he has powers against demons: a natural born exorcist. Guided by his open minded ex-military grandfath [...]

    10. I just crushed all 5 books over a few week period - so they all kind of meshed together for me.But I love this series, I love a lot of books but this one stands out. Mostly because the MC is in a category on his own, but also because the author brings in a variety of characters with vastly different personalities.To some of the people who think that Chris is a little OP - I don't mind it. Its a fresh take I think on a genre that usually takes several books for the MC to learn who he/she is, what [...]

    11. Absolutely brilliant book, and a fantastic start too the demon accords series, the story just dragged me in and i finished it overnight. Im going to start on the next book as soon as possible.

    12. Summary: Interesting (and comfortably conventional) urban fantasy setting, memorable secondary characters, and a first-hit's-(almost)-free price make this a fun enough romp. Just don't read the second.Detailed review:Throws some good, established tropes together and stir: The rookie cop with a paranormal secret. The vampire-run nightclub. The secret, off-the-books NYPD unit that deals with the paranormal. The Evil Federal Agency That Gets In The Way Of Honest Cops. The "PCP-like" street drug mad [...]

    13. Jim Butcher.er watch out. Tell Harry Dresden that there is a new cop in town! Chris Gordon!The Dresden Series are my top favorite books to read. That being said, The Demon Accords by John Conroe, has become my second favorite, and quite possibly as I read more of them, my #1 pick! The spin that Conroe does on the whole supernatural world is reminiscent of Butcher's Dresden world. They both have their powers, and supernatural friends but Harry leans toward the fey world, where Chris leans toward [...]

    14. 3.75 stars. Enjoyable story but it's very light. The MC's are Mary/Gary Stus. Both superhumanly powerful and irresistible to others. Both noble and kind-hearted. Their romance was ultra fast. I prefer glacially slow development in an urban fantasy romance. Chris quickly came into God-like powers so I was never concerned for his safety. He picked up powerful friends and sidekicks everywhere he turned. While I found this book entertaining I won't continue with the series as it lacks the darker edg [...]

    15. Hmmmm 2.5 stars. Just not for me. In my opinion, there wasn't really much of a plot and most of the characters just fell really flat. Plus, not a big fan of vampires. I did find the main character's commentary funny at times, though!

    16. I don't know if somehow the copy I bought of this novel was a first or maybe second draft but there were definitely a lot of flaws in this book. From excessive (and I do mean to the extreme) use of exclamation marks, many typos, missing words and sometimes extra seemingly random sentence fragments somehow surviving the editing process, there is a great deal about the writing of this book that can make it a little hard to read at times. Add on top of that the fact that some of the scenes are over [...]

    17. I Really enjoyed this. I don't write that many reviews but this is It is totally Urban Fantasy Guy Lit. It's a refreshing take on the Urban Fantasy scene. Fun characters and a nice pace. Some books are not for everybody and i assume that's what some of the other overly aggressive negative reviews are trying to say. If you like to read through comments or reviews before reading or purchasing a book like i do please look at the Rating Details, 77% of the readers thought this book deserves a 4/5 St [...]

    18. If you like comic books (who doesn’t?), but are often frustrated by the short story length, then this book is for you.The protagonist is a flawless champion of awesomeness who spends the entire book crushing monsters…literally. Well, that is, when he is not bedding his incredibly beautiful, exotic girlfriend. Who, btw, is more awesome than our hero.Our hero: Incredibly handsome, in perfect condition, deadly lethal in all forms of martial arts, every woman wants him…oh, and is independently [...]

    19. I very much enjoyed this first book in the Demon Accords series. It was well-written, and takes a fresh look at vampires and other denizens of the mythical world. While the vampires were all beautiful and athletic, at least they didn't sparkle. Also, the book never really falls into blatant vampire worship, as the main character remains smartly suspicious of what is happening, and we learn that (gasp!) there are good vampires and bad ones, smart ones and stupid ones.The extra layer of the demons [...]

    20. Guilty pleasure.There seems to be a glut of "chicklit" out there, with a wide segment of fantasy and horror in the mix. While the term has a somewhat derogatory feel, I don't mean it that way, and I read authors I would characterize this way if their books are well written and interesting. The key characteristic is a female lead with some extraordinary characteristics who provides the reader a level of wish fulfillment. This book is "guylit". It is much the same with a male lead. Having said tha [...]

    21. My original God Touched audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.God Touched by John Conroe is the first in a series called the Demon Accords. Chris Gordon is a NYPD rookie who spends his free time conducting exorcisms. He has an extraordinary skill with exorcism that he developed with he was a child living with his grandfather in the countryside. As an NYPD rookie, he was trying to live a normal life, when he is suddenly flung into a world of vampires. He must now try [...]

    22. So many books with a lone hero in an urban environment tackling vampires, werewolves and other creatures, it's not easy to find a nice series. This one starts out promising. There's a main character that has a good background, young so he's not with a rich background like Kevin Hearne's iron druid or Steve Mchugh's hellequin. Also not grim like Simon R. Green's John Taylor from the nightside, or pessimistic like Benedict Jackas's Alex Verus. A mit reminiscent of Larry Correia's Owen the monster [...]

    23. Awesome beginning to a great series.This was a really, really great book which I enjoyed. I give it a five out of a five. The reason I did so was due to the twists and turns in the plot, a lot of which was generally well done. I don't remember coming across any errors, but that was due to the fact that I was "in-the-zone", my mind and imagination running wild as if it were watching a movie. This is something I'm sure most avid readers can attest to. To boiling down, we meet Chris Gordon, a rooki [...]

    24. FunI enjoyed this book. Granted, it isn't a great piece of literature but I enjoyed it. I loved Lydia and her smart@ss attitude. It was meant to be a fun book with an easy and uncomplicated plot to it. That is what I try to find when I look for a book. I have complications enough in my personal life. I don't need a complicated book to add to it. Would I recommend it? Yes, for those looking for a fun, uncomplicated read. Yes, there was at least two places with messed up sentences, but Dostoevsky [...]

    25. I got about a third/half of the way through before I had to put it down. It had an interesting premise, but too many plot holes, typos, and characterization issues took me out of the story. I felt the main character was too much of a Gary Stu, and the plot itself held way too many poorly implemented cliches and tropes for me to overlook. Vampires--some of whom are centuries old--know nothing of demons while everyone else seems to? And only Chris (who is trusted immediately by the powerful vampir [...]

    26. OMG, Why have I not read this Author's books before now!I am not as eloquent with words as I would like to be and feel I am not going to give this Author the attention he sooo deserves. I absolutely love the characters in his story, it is a breath of fresh air! The main character, Chris is endearing immediately and the story wraps you into its clutches and keeps you there until the end. I am extremely happy that the next book, Demon Driven (The Demon Accords Book 2) is available and I can dive r [...]

    27. I have such a love hate relationship with Urban Fantasy. I liked this book - it has SO many problems but there are enough positive points and it established the world enough that I want to continue. Mostly, I think I want more spirit ghost bear thingy.

    28. Okay I had mixed feelings about this book. It could be because it was the first book - it seemed very "clean". After reading Laurel k. Hamilton, Faith Hunter etc. this book was very light. There wasn't a lot of gore, or danger, which I would think there would be when dealing with vamps, weres and demons. He seems to very easily defeat the baddies, by himself or with his very powerful newfound friends. Saying that I really like the main character. He's humble and been a loner for most of his life [...]
