Book Tour & Giveaway: The Demon Within by Josh Gagnier

Joe grew up listening to the voice in his head. It helped him through school, helped him gain wealth in his career.

The final temptation of power was too much. He hadn’t considered the cost.

Now he must find a way to defeat The Demon Within.

Little does he know, his every move is being recorded. Every misstep is being judged. As he gets ever closer to winning over his demon, heavenly eyes watch from above. Some root for his success while others hope he’ll fail.

While Joe fights his demon on the battlefront, the angel Michael fights for his Soul.

Will Joe win out? Will Michael be able to save Joe’s soul?

Or will the Demon win and thrust Joe into the Abyss.

Guest Review by Betty G.
The Demon Within has to be the most unique take on good versus evil I have ever read. I mean that in the best of ways. I found my mind wondering while reading the first few pages but then it sucked me in. It was like going through a wormhole and getting flung into a totally new world.

While Joe fights the Demon Within him and the angel fights for Joe’s soul, there is what seems to the reader to be a courtroom battle. It may sound confusing to follow but the transition from each scene is well executed, thanks to the excellent writing of Josh Gagnier. This book is near impossible to put down. With each interruption, I felt like I was being sucked back into the wormhole again and was disoriented for a few moments. I often get lost in a book but not like this!

The Demon Within is book one in a series called The Last War. I can hardly wait until book 2 is published. Please hurry Mr. Gagnier, Joe weighs heavy on my mind! I recommend this book for lovers of dark fantasy and paranormal and give it 5 stars.


Josh has had a knack for writing from a young age; mostly poetry. The Demon Within is his debut novel and, according to Josh, nearly wrote itself. He is a US Army veteran and has been deployed to the Balkans and Middle East. He has been an IT professional for about a decade.

Many of the events in The Demon Within were taken from Josh’s life and put through the fiction blender as he puts it. When pressed for more details, he said he couldn’t give specifics for fear of giving spoilers, but, he did say the book includes fictional spins on things ranging from childhood bullying to being placed in the Las Vegas foster care system.

He currently lives in Columbus OH with his family and is working on book two of his The Last War series.
