Publisher's Summary

I promised to avenge my parents. But their killer is still on the loose, and he's stolen more than my parents' lives. Now, as he draws closer to his mysterious goals, he's poised to destroy what little I have left.

I promised to translate an ancient grimoire. But it holds the secrets of my family - and the secret history of demon summoning. I fear its answers as much as I need them. Who was the foremother of Demonica...and who am I?

I promised to send my demon home. But the way he watches me, the way he protects me, the way he touches me - how can I cast him away forever? I swore I would do this for him, but can I? Should I?

But I promised - and I will keep my promises even if they cost me my heart, my soul, and my life.

I'm so sad this is the end

no matter how much I look there is no other book after this. I'm so sad it ended. man, do I hope the author writes more of this story. I don't want it to end.

best series so far in the world of guild codex

warning some spoilers: Demonized is the best series so far. Cris does an excellent job portraying Robin and her growth from timid college drop out to a woman willing to stand up and fight for what she believes is right. The slowly developing love story between Robin and Z FINALLY ignites after waiting for it since book one. My only complaint was Teddy's portrayal of Z. I realize allowances should be made since he only had one chapter (also sad) and he was reading for a non human character but even through Robin's eyes Z was a being of volatile emotions at times and for me his character performance fell flat. Otherwise this final book in the series was well worth the wait.

Perfect ending

This book beautifully wrapped up at the massive arcs of all characters and the world and finished beautifully. More action, more danger, more emotions and challenges, more emotions. And most of all: satisfying conclusion. Narration continues to be perfect. Unrelated: I want a demon.

Satisfying Finale!

Enjoyed this finale to the series. Always want “more,” but don’t feel the author left us hanging...but I would not be unhappy to revisit this world. :-)

...makes me want to reread (again)!

Beautiful!

This was an amazing end to an absolutely beautiful story! I want more so badly but I feel as if this is the best ending I could ask for. The narration was amazing and I am always in love with how the characters are brought to life!

One of my fav audio series

This is one of my all time favorite series in general (I’m a fantasy fiction/sci-if diehard) and I’m obsessed with the audio narration. Dukehart is one of my new favs as well!

I just LOVE all of Annette Marie's Guild Codex series. Another fantastic story, a perfect stopping point for the two MC's. Very Satisfying.

Sad to see the end of this storyline

This was the best Guild Codex yet. I am so sorry to see Robin’s story come to an end. This story had everything… action, adventure, romance. I would definitely not be sad if Annette were to write another story.

Wrapped up super well

4.5 stars — I am struggling with writing this review. I think I’m already sad it’s done. But also relieved that I loved the ending so much. I was honestly a bit worried that I wasn’t going to get all the answers I wanted, but I think I did. There might be a few little mysteries here and there, but in general I felt like it all wrapped up super well.

I was worried for a bit that Robin was taking two steps back with Zylas, and I was a bit frustrated with her. But she had a reckoning with herself in the middle of this book, and it kind of papered over my frustrations with her. I was proud of how much she’d grown over the series, and who she was by the end of it.

Zylas is still a little bit of a mystery for me, but I truly do love that demon boy.

The slow burn finally paid off, and it was worth the wait.

As with all these GCU books, there were a lot of intense scenes where I wasn’t sure how they were going to survive. I love all the little advances we see from them, the new things we learn, the new things they learn about themselves as they figure out how to not die.

Even though the secondary cast isn’t quite as large as in Spellbound, I still really loved the ones who play a prominent role in this one. Amalia had a really tough go of it, but in the end I think she figured things out. And I loved that we got more Zora.

I will admit that I kept waiting for Teddy Hamilton’s narration — so for anyone else that likes to know, it’s one chapter near the end…it’s not really dual narration. Cris Dukehart was amazing as always, even if she doesn’t know how to pronounce touque (it rhymes with Luke).

I can already feel a book hangover coming on…but more like a universe hangover. I can tell that this is going to be a frequent reread for me, they’re like comfort books.

Great ending to this series

I actually ended up liking the demonized series more than the main Guild Codex stuff. I was not sure about the premise at first, but these books are great and do not disappoint.

REDEMPTIOOOONNNN

If you, like me, were super frustrated with Robin’s snail like pace of self examination and habit of lying to herself and others about everything, covering it up with stammers and blushes, REST ASSURED!!! This book is… *chefs kiss*, the most perfect conclusion to what was shaping up to be a dull and infuriating series based on book 3. This book… I cried. I don’t pretend that I’m not an emotional reader, and I’ve cried at a lot of books, but if you want to sob tears of sweet sweet heartbreak and joy, this is one for you. The author really delivers and the narration is great.

Demons, portals and death.

One of my all time favourite books, the only bad thing I can say about this is that it's the final book on Zylas and Robin. This is such an exciting and amazing story that I wished it would never end, the emotional pull all the way through this entire series is something I will always treasure. There are many great battles, both physical and emotional in the demonized series. The characters are all very memorable, all with very different personalities. The lore in the world is very well written and extremely interesting, and the bad guys make you want to hit something. It would make an epic TV series.

I loved this book and the rest of the series but..

I don't understand changing narrator for just 15 mins. It broke the immersion. I'm sure Teddy Hamilton is a fine narrator, but to have the voice change and names pronounced differently so far into the story seemed unnecessary, especially as it was only for 15 mins.

I love the series, the characters and the world. This was a satisfing ending - I'm still sad to see it end. I'm looking forward to the crystal druid series!

***Brilliant Series***

I am hoping that there is a spin off from this series like Amelia's story 😍 I loved Robin and Zailis omg I'm crying because now their gone 😭 I hope they will have kids too and poor Robin will grow old and Zailis will live nearly forever. This is one of the best Annette Marie's series ever and i will never forget it.🥰 Cris Dukehart you are brilliant thank you and Teddy Hamilton I wished you spoked more your voice is dreamy thank you xx

Sadly all over

Very satisfying ending for Robin & Zylas.
Robin & Zylas’s contracted relationship has grown more into friendship & more as the series has continued. Finally they are truely honest with each other & was such a beautiful moment.
I did find the final battle with the demon contractor a little rushed.
Gives another side to the events in Lost Talismans and a Tequila.

The best in all the guild codex series

I ended up liking this series far more than I did with the spellbound series. I found Robin and Ziyalis’s story more enjoyable and exciting than Tori’s (although I still liked it).
This book was great. The best book out of them all.
Really hoping Annette Marie writes more from this world. I really want to see more from Amalia and Zack/Ghost. Maybe they could fall in love

A powerful finish

Really enjoyed this final book and the end (or beginning) of Robin & Zylas' story. When this series began I found it very average. But over the course of the novels I grew very attached to the two main characters and greatly enjoyed their relationship development. The last battle and finale were epic & emotionally moving. I shall miss these two inspiring people.
