Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Something is wrong with the souls of Chicago's dead. Ghosts are walking the streets, and Agent of Death Madeline Black's exasperating boss wants her to figure out why. And while work is bad enough, Maddy has a plethora of personal problems too. Now that Gabriel has been assigned as her thrall, their relationship has hit an impasse. At least her sleazy ex-fiance Nathaniel is out of the picture--or so she thinks...

Review:

"Maddy Black enters the third installment of her adventures (after Black Night) with far too many skills she doesn't understand, men she can't handle, and relatives she doesn't want. It's all familiar territory, and a great deal of internal and external dialogue gets recycled, not just from the previous books but from chapter to chapter in this one. Even Maddy complains, 'Was I really going to have to go through this again?' This time around, Maddy encounters an oddly obsessive ghost who was not on the afterlife's schedule for death. She doesn't think much of it until the same behavior crops up, demon-induced, in the living. The demons are associated with her old enemy, Focalor, and Maddy is pretty sure that means trouble for her, though it takes a while to see how. Distracted by Lucifer's machinations and all the males sulking and quarreling around her, Maddy pings from one crisis to the next, as socially, politically, and emotionally inept as ever."

Absolutely love this series. A new take on the whole "angel" theme. Contains characters that are just so unique (Beezle the gargoyle anyone? :D)

In this book we learn more about Wade's werewolf pack as "cubs" from the pack are being kidnapped. Overall I did like the story, but for some reason I just kept pulling more and more away from the Gabriel character. I think it mainly stems from how he always seems to point out that he is a thrall technically in Maddy's service. It's like he doesn't have the guts to disregard all that a thrall entails (the ownership issue) like Maddy does. The ending was definitely shocking and I can't wait for the next book to find out what happens next.
