Add three demonic lords with conflicting ambitions to the mix, and Kara has the perfect recipe for global disaster.
An awful lot has happened as this series has chugged along and it no longer has the police procedure edge that initially gave it such a unique voice in urban fantasy. This book sees a much greater understanding of the demon realm and just how almost dependent on each other the two worlds are.
It's still an action packed, fast moving story but there's time to flesh out the readers' understanding of the arcane and just how the demon lords truly fit in. Yes, there are huge revelations here and Kara boldly takes a chance on a character that few would trust.
My advice is buckle up as it's an awfully bumpy ride but for me, so worth it. It's not a short read and there are complications spitting out everywhere but the depth and breadth of Ms Rowland's imagination is astounding. A mixture of happy and sad moments and a huge conundrum at the end but that's why I read this series, because I can never guess what's coming next.
I was gifted a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
