The second book in this edgy urban fantasy trilogy. Chess is a fiercely independent witch and talented Debunker - working for the Church of Real Truth to exorcise ghosts and expose human liars. But she has a dark little secret that is causing her a lot of problems! a drug addiction. Trying to catch a spectral serial killer with a fondness for his victims' eyes is distracting Chess from her day job, and her growing attraction to Terrible is making things worse. Life is getting too complicated and Chess must break the rules to keep her head above water.
Having loved the dark world created by Stacia in the previous novel, I really couldn’t wait to get to grips to see how this title would improve the world as well as the characters. What you get is still the same fast paced action but its backed up with a very sensitive principle character who is not only emotionally weak but also a woman who lives on her wits rather than straight out kick ass ability. It’s refreshing, its got a darker edge than a lot of the titles out there but most of all it’s a title that may escape a few radars for a while yet. Whilst following a character who has an addiction may be a bit tough for a number of readers it adds to the vulnerability and as such is something that will make this a read that sticks in your memory. Great stuff.
The third book in this gritty, sexy, urban fantasy trilogy. Rogue spirits and psychopomps are terrorising people, and now someone is planning to open the gates to the City of Ghosts and unleash the dead on humanity. Faced with her greatest challenge yet, Chess has to travel to the spirit city to finally lay all her ghosts to rest!
The third instalment for Majorie and one that challenges our lead heroine. It’s got intrigue, its got some politics and above all else it has left our heroine wondering who she can trust in a situation that she’s going to have to work pretty hard to get out of. It’s gripping, it’s definitely got some moxy and above all else it’s a title that leaves the author a whole range of area’s to explore if she revisits the world. It’s definitely an adventure, it’s definitely a tale that the reader will love, and whilst I missed the second part I wasn’t left feeling out in the cold as far as the characters were concerned. A great sign but if you’ve not read at least the first part, put this title down and explore the shelves as otherwise spoilers may well prevent you from enjoying the other titles.
