Title: The Hour of Tiamat
Author: Lisa Taylor
Review: The first few chapters of this book kind of freaked me out. I wasn’t sure where the demons were coming from and why they were released to kill. As I read further I realized what was going on and why the whole thing needed to be stopped. The characters calling the demons were quite scary, I didn’t care for them at all. The group trying to stop them was more fully developed and of course I was cheering for them to succeed.
I think the book was interesting and after about reading half of the book I really wanted to finish it and see what would happen to the world. It took some time to get into, but once it started it kept my interest. Demons and things involving demons have never been a huge interest to me, but if they interest you than read this book and see what you think.

Synopsis: We've all heard of the Mayan predictions of a vast change coming in the year 2012; but it turns out the ancient Sumerian people had a very similar prophecy…
The dreaded Necronomicon, a book of fable said to contain all the ancient knowledge of the Sumerian civilization has surfaced and fallen into the hands of four teenagers in a small Texas town. Tonight, after years of studying its dark teachings in secret, they gather to call back to Earth those Gods that tried to enslave humanity over ten thousand years ago, and in turn become rulers themselves.
Under threat of his life, Tristan helps them complete the ritual; but does that mean it is too late to stop this apocalypse? With Evelyn, whose past and future seem inextricably linked to Tristan, their friend Hunter and a host of surprising paranormal helpers, Tristan will race against murderers, monsters, and time itself to shut the ancient gate before our evil creators are upon us again.
