Each of the books in this series explore the life of one of the warriors and the demon they house. It looks at their life with their fellow warriors and it introduce the female who can tame both demon and man and bring some peace into their lives.
I have read the entire series except the last book The Darkest Torment and enjoyed each one. Even thought they carry a common theme they are each filled with enough different experiences, places and people that each book is indeed unique.
