Cool Kara Gillian series by Diana Rowland

Kara even has her own version of Butters who it turns out used to be an Olympic level gymnast, now a CSI tech!. Kara is kinda' Murphy with arcane talents. Kara Gillian is almost as much fun as Harry Dresden and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series. In fact, I'll begin reading the 4th book, Sins of the Demon right now! Three cheers for Diana Rowland and Kara Gillian!!!

Also, I just turned in White Trash Zombie Apocalypse, which will be out Jul 2, 2013. And, the next book in the Kara Gillian series will be Fury of the Demon, which will most likely be out near the end of the year.
Wow! Now I am in the position of having to wait for the next book! And boy-O-boy am I ever impatient! I really enjoyed this series. Also I see what treadlightly meant about book 5 taking the storyline in a different direction, but it didn't bother me in the least. I did miss the cop/investigator thing but not so much as to its lack detracting from the story.
