To save her sister, she must stop a silent killer. . . .
Protecting Atlanta from the off-world criminals of Underground is tough enough, but now Detective Charlie Madigan and her siren partner, Hank, learn that the addicts of the offworld drug ash have begun taking their own lives. Ash makes humans the perfect vessels for possession, and something or someone is leading them to their deaths. Charlie is desperate to save her addicted sister, Bryn, from a similar fate. As New Year’s Eve approaches and time runs out, Charlie makes a deadly bargain with an ancient race of beings and embarks on a dangerous journey into hellish Charbydon with Hank and the Revenant Rex to save Bryn and make it back before it’s too late. Only, for one of them, coming home means facing a fate worse then death. . . .Oh I was so itching for this book I had to break open the calamine lotion! Then, I actually got the book and devoured it! Oh for those following Charlie's adventures you will be right back with her enjoying her character as before. Those that have yet to join in her adventures, no worries... I will do my best to be non-spoilery for you.
Oh in this book we get a bit more of Hank who is Charlie's partner on the force. *Squee!* Can I has a Hank of my own? It isn't his siren good looks or voice that has us all swooning, but him! Oh I loved getting to know Hank a bit more. However, this is still more about Charlie and dealing with what had happened in the last book. It picks up right after the end of the last book and we don't see all the fall out save what is happening to Bryn. We still don't know the total impact to Charlie herself although we do get a bit more of a glimpse. Rex is also great as the comic relief. He really snarked it up in this book. What can I say? I love the characters in this book!
Oh can I say much more without spoilage? Probably not. :( However, I can say that I still want a hellhound (I mean I have a devil dog, so why not?). I now want a Hank too. :) Oh and for those that need to yet read book one (yes, they should be read in order and I have done so!) please pick it up. You will love this kick-ass mother. Yes, I do mean that literally. She is a mother that you will enjoy! You will also love her kid Em and the rest of the cast you get to know throughout the series. As for this book, it rocked my socks off (thanks Ashley for the saying!) and I give it 4 1/2 stars! The ending is what I might call a sort of cliffie. The main story line has ended but a new one opens up. So, can I has the next book, like NOW???? Seriously... I needs it!
