    1. I need to give credit where it's due. I've previously established that urban legendhood is not my cup of tea, but Stewart does it so much better than 90% of the others that it's a pleasure to read anyway. The readability of the text is way above average. This would almost be suitable for YA readers, which probably means they are the ones reading it most. Yeah, I know, they use all those words every day. I wish they wouldn't. As Jesse would tell you, what you say has consequences.The snarky, hip, [...]


    2. I haven't yet read the first two books in this series, but I'm going to after reading this one. That's unusual for me to read a book out of sequence in a series. But Stewart made that a non-issue. I never once got lost, only intrigued by allusions to past events. There's enough backstory to let me ease into the current events without bogging down.The third installment is a fast paced read, with fully-drawn, likeable and realistic characters. That's important to me in fantasy. The story is intrig [...]



    3. Full Review originally at Fantasy Book Critic ANALYSIS: The Jesse James Dawson series is one of my favorite urban fantasy series since its start in 2010. The series features a world wherein human champions must fight demons for the souls of errant humans; Jesse James Dawson is one such champion who thinks much less of his role and more of his family. In the previous two books, the reader learns more about the world and the role of champions. Arguably the readers have also gotten a look into Jess [...]


    4. Another Hit!I am seriously loving this series. I love how it's soalistic, for lack of a better term. Realistic in how it portrays relationships and all the drama that can affect them, in good and bad ways. The last book showed how bad things can turn when some people get introduced to the things that go bump in the night, how long friendships can be broken and in so e ways necessarily so. In this one I did enjoy how someone can seem so transparent yet can have so much more going on than meets th [...]


    5. Axel calls in the favour Jesse owes him and sends him off to LA to protect a movie star who has made a deal with a demon and is now carting around hundreds of souls people traded to spend a night with her. With precious little idea of what to expect and how to fight it, even a professional champion's got his hands full with this task.This series has yet to disappoint - action, humour, and intriguing twists, with an ending that once again leaves me eagerly looking forward to finding out what come [...]


    6. Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Shawnie:Jesse James Dawson was an ordinary human - with a black belt in karate, until his brother stepped into something he couldn't get out of alone. Now five years after it all started Jesse is a bonafide Champion of Souls, mentoring under Ivan Zelenko. He has been through more in the last few years of his life, than most people go through in their entire lives and still he keeps going. He is a true good guy in all sense of the words; he [...]


    7. I zoomed right through this volume. And though I liked it, it lagged in the middle with stuff that I didn't see was needed by the end of the book. However, overall this is one heck of a ride and I'm still heavily invested in the series. Stewart has created a wonderful urban fantasy and the mythos created about demons and their role is almost believable.Better yet, we get a very nice surprise "gift" in this book, one which I hoped for but didn't expect to see, given what our main character, Jesse [...]


    8. Near to the end of the previous book in the series, A Shot in the Dark, Jesse made a sort-of deal with Axel the demon. Axel did Jesse a favour and now Jesse owes Axel a favour in return. What Axel wants is for Jesse to go to Hollywood and protect Gretchen Keene, a Hollywood star who sold her soul, and as part of the deal has accumulated the hundreds of souls of men who sold theirs for a night with her. The timing couldn't be worse: it's just after Christmas, so he's expected to stay home with hi [...]


    9. Take into account that I'm writing this review right after I finished reading the book, so pardon my enthusiasm.Just like the previous book, this one is brilliant but with a personality of its own.While A Shot in the Dark: A Jesse James Dawson Novel was fast paced action with a kind of claustrophobic feel to it, "A Wolf at the Door" is quite different, but in a good way. Its plot is more towards the psychological development of the main character.(view spoiler)[We get to see Jesse Dawson startin [...]


    10. The more I read in this series, the more I fall in love with this series. It is slowly becoming the next best thing in Urban Fantasy for me after Jim Butcher and is close on the heels of Demon Squad series by Tim Marquitz. I would like to thank Mihir and fantasybookcritic for highlighting this series to me in the first place.Jesse is a champion with absolutely no magical powers whose main weapon besides his sword is his word and ethical code. Jesse is thus roped in by Axel (a demon) to protect a [...]


    11. This book seems to be a game changer for Jesse in a couple of different ways. For most of the book Jesse seems to be questioning his being a champion and how it fits into his life and what he hopes for.I hated to see Jesse's friendship with Marty change so much. I think it will be bad for him to loose the grounding. I was glad to see Jesse question Ivan, because from the last book we learned that he kept a lot hidden from Jesse and other champions. It is too bad, because I think they could use t [...]


    12. This series is getting more and more interesting. Axel has called in his favor and Jesse, being the honorable champion that he is, must obey. I was intrigued by the idea of Jesse working for the other side and I was hoping that there would be more of Axel's sly manipulations throughout the story, but no such luck. The story, for the most part, didn't need him though. Still there was some predictability here, (I knew whodunnit right away and was a little frustrated by the obviousness of it), but [...]


    13. I have no desire to point out errors or flaws in Wolf at the Door. The first thought I had when I finished it was "Oh! Wow!!" It is a great read, and I will read it again. I read for enjoyment and an escape, and Stewart gives me both with characters that I care about, a world that makes sense, and plots that make me think without twisting my brain like a pretzel. The suggestion that more is going on than Jesse knows is a tease that has me eager to read the next book. Hopefully, the wait will not [...]


    14. As usual, Jesse James Dawson doesn't let me down - I enjoy these books because there is action, the supernatural, and a sense of humor that I enjoy - I will say that this one did not hold much in the sense that I knew the villain that was behind it almost immediately - though kudos for having one last surprise for me in the final pages that I was taken back by - all things aside, this is one of those books and series that Hollywood would do a wonderful job of messing up and ruining, and unless J [...]


    15. Hmmmmm this was an enjoyable instalment in the series, but somehow not quite as good as the first two. I still like Jesse, but I didn't get nearly such a strong sense of him as a character that I did in the first two. And a LOT of ends have been left loose too, which makes me hope that this isn't the end of the series ( goes to consult Google . nope, apparently there are at least 3 more in the series coming)The banter and snark were still there though, which meant I definitely had fun reading it [...]


    16. Finally a very capable female champion. How does he not believe in God "with the big G" if he believes in (has heard) souls burning in Hell? Doesn't it kind of go with the territory? Live about sense of peace and how he wished he could have that too. I love how even hearing a demon name is horrific and disturbing. I love that he doesn't fit a stereotype. He wears snarky t-shirts and jeans. He's skinny. He talks like he's 22. He's funny and when he breaks the 4th wall it's always hilarious.


    17. Jesse and the James gang ride againJesse and the James gang ride againanother wild ride for Jesse James. this time instead of having to simply duel to the death with a daemon for someone's soul he has to try to save the life of an actress who has collected over 200 souls read the first in the series first but if you like the highlander movies you'll love this series


    18. A good book - I like this series very much. The writing style has snark, but substance as well. It's also fast paced, addictive, and fun. There was a key plot point that remained a mystery to the characters, but was glaring to me; that is the only criticism I have for this book. But even that flaw was handled better than some books I've read, and I didn't scream at the characters once for their missing that fact. Very enjoyable.


    19. [Just a few words about why it took so much time to finish reading it: I really really liked this book. Problem: Civil Service Examination (aka Oposiciones). So yeah, my life right now (and most of the year): study, study and study, oh, and study too, did I forget to mention it?. That's all, no life whatsoever, and obviously no much time to read either.]


    20. 4+ actually, but WTF??? ROC has just informed Ms Stewart that the series is being dropped??? First ACE/Blackstone/Del Franco, and now this? What is wrong with these idiot publishers? They print utter tripe on a daily basis but drop the good stuff? I'm starting to not care that Ebooks are in danger of putting publishers out of business. Apparently the idiots are trying to hasten the process!


    21. A fairly solid third entry into the series--this has many more echoes of the first book (which I liked a lot), with the more varied cast and being in a city and stuff besides zombies happening.The world is opening up more, and there are some interesting development's in Jesse's life.It had a few wobbles, and some predictable moments and set-ups, but overall, enjoyed this one a lot.


    22. It took me a long time to finish this book, not because I didn't enjoy it but because I set it down somewhere and promptly lost it. Well, I found it today and quickly finished it off. Now I can go on to #4! A great installment of a great series. Only one thing made me groan, and I won't talk about it because it's spoilery. And even that is more just my own personal preference than anything.


    23. Great book. Third in the series. I loved that everything built easily. I was over half way done with the book before I realized that I wasn't just starting it. These three books are easy reads, fun, and I love them. Jesse Dawson is a great character and Stewart's writing is amazing. Can't wait to read more!


    24. Bookseller: AlecIn this third volume featuring the Kansas City samurai, Jesse Dawson takes on more demons, fleshless men, and the agents of LA when he receives a tip that the life of a superstar holds the key to a power that could shift the balance in a secret demon war.Complex characterizations and good pacing continue to set this downright fun series apart.


    25. Hopefully this is not the end for JJD! I thoroughly enjoyed this latest installment, and can't wait to see what happens next
