Demon Apostle

The Demon Apostle
(The DemonWars Saga #3)
by R.A. Salvatore
With the demon dactyl and its foul minions defeated, the war-weary citizens of the kingdom of Honce-the-Bear wish only to bury their dead and begin rebuilding their broken lives. Yet the fragile balance between church and state lies shattered.

The specter of civil war haunts the ravaged land–and a specter more fearsome still. For the demon, though defeated, was not destroyed. And now its vengeful spirit has found an unholy sanctuary at the very heart of the Abellican Church.

With the third book, the story focuses on the Church and it’s battle to gain dominance over the monarchy. This makes the story more political, with allegiances changing. It does resolve to a satisfying resolution in the end.

I did find that listening made the story darker and more intense that a reading would. While there are four more books to go, I’m taking a break to catch up on some old Bugle episodes.
