Series - Monster Haven #5
Genre - Urban Fantasy
Published - October 20th 2014

Zoey Donovan Aegis and co-opted protector of all things supernatural is moving up in the Hidden world. Actually, she's being drop kicked onto the front lines of a fight between the newly formed Cult of Imagination and Hidden governments everywhere. 

 The Cult is opening portals and unleashing demons, vampires and werewolves, growing closer to breaking the lock that holds back the zombie apocalypse with every world they crack open. Oh, and they want every last Aegis in the world dead, and a roving band of Hidden worshippers is only too eager to assist. 

 On the upside, Zoey finally has her mother back. But having another Aegis around one with very different ideas on how to run things is proving difficult. For their own safety, they're stuck inside Zoey's home. What was once a haven is now a prison, further straining maternal relations and alienating her reaper boyfriend. Taking down a cult and saving the world again would be a lot easier if she could go farther than her own driveway.

Zoey heads off to a get together with all the Aegis’s as well as the leaders of the area. Only upon arriving she learns quickly that she’s not the only Aegis that was under attack and numbers are dwindling dramatically. Returning home, she learns that it’s not over someone is determined to slay all the Aegis’s at any cost and is using magical portals to other worlds to bring creatures to kill them. Being forced to stay in the safety of her own home isn’t what she had planned but it’s the only way to stay safe with the looming threat

As if being stuck at home isn’t bad imagine being protected by your ex-reaper boyfriend who like Zoey isn’t over the other. At least Zoey isn’t alone her mother another Aegis is safe and she’s made a lot of hidden friends to help out. As the body count starts to go up and the living Aegis is quickly dwindling they need to figure it out or they will be the last. Will Zoey and her friends be able to stop the looming zombie apocalypse that will end their world? What about her relationship with Riley? Who is the demon in her driveway?

I like Zoey a lot she’s one of my favorite characters in the urban fantasy world. While she may be human she has some magic up her sleeves as an empath and protector of the hidden. Over the years she’s made some strong friendship’s even bringing her friends into the hidden world like Sara. I found Sara’s aspect in the story very intriguing and was hoping that things would work out for her. I’m such a fan of Zoey and Riley they just complement each other so well even if things haven’t been working out I have hope.

Demons in my Driveway is the 5th installment in the Monster Haven series. First off I love the concept for the Monster Haven Series it’s unique and each novel gives us a new insight into the hidden world. I admit I’m not a huge fan of demons so I was a little skeptical as to the role they would play in this book. However, Demons in my Driveway doesn’t disappoint it’s action packed, filled with mystery and just enough romance to leave you wanting more. The characters are great I’ve fallen in love with Zoey and Maurice and secretly hope that one day I’ll find a house with my very own closet monster. The author has created another beautifully done installment in the Monster Haven series and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next.
