    A winner

    Black London is a dangerous place to reside as witches, mages and necromancers fight each other for control with no regard for collateral damage. Adding to the deadly chaos is the deity civil war and the revival of the lethal order of the Malleus who stalk witches with deadly intent.

    Trying to retain order are detectives like Pete Caldecott. A Weir she misses her mentor former punk rocker Jack Winter, who took her under his wings when she was sixteen before he apparently died (see Street Magic). When Pete found Jack, she was euphoric. After drying out from his addiction, Jack was turned into a demon so he fled to hell to keep himself from harming Pete (see Demon Bound). Now Jack is back for the third time in Pete's life as the Commander in Chief of an army of hell's most odious horde with plans to dominate the world. Pete must assassinate her hero in order to save Black London and the world or else.

    This strange but exhilarating Black London urban fantasy (see the anthology Huntress, for a Winter dark novella) takes a third major spin in the Jack-Pete relationship; which gives new meaning to dysfunctional. Although there is an initial déjà vu all over again feel, the twisted fast-paced story line holds reader attention; as Pete is left with the choice of saving the world by killing her mentor-hero. Readers will relish the tale of the heroine's dilemma as she knows what she must do, but fears she will not be able to figuratively squeeze the trigger as the thought of patricide makes her ill.

    Great addition to the Black London Series!

    Six months after Jack was taken by the demon, Pete is trying to live without him... and not coming back. Pete is a wreck with loss, surfacing in different forms. Ollie, Pete's old partner, has asked her to come and check out a stiff. As soon as Pete sees the body, she knows there is rather dark magic involved. And all the spiral carving and scars over the dead mans chest and arms, just adds to the mystery along with something completely unrecognizable to her. Pete has a touch of talent to work with magic on her own, but doesn't know how to use it. Can Pete help Ollie? And who else is involved in this case? Pete must follow the leads for this case that she may not want to.

    I enjoyed this book as it is what I wanted to happen. Well, not in the sense of the whole book, but I wanted to see Pete grow, become her own character. And This book delivers on that journey for Pete. Pete is upset with the loss of her lover Jack and trying to carry on what they had in business and life. In this Pete has to stand on her own and try to make things work with other characters that worked with Jack. In making Pete stronger as a character it helps bring some secondary characters to the light a little more. And even introduces us to a few surprising, new characters.

    The story line keeps me guessing and wondering what is going on. Pete makes her suggestions as we go through the book, but I kept wondering if there was something else - deeper darker. We keep getting the small details of the rituals and meanings behind what's going on, and just kept waiting to see how deep the story was going. The more Pete digs, the more we see, and the darker the magic gets. With unexpected turns and characters.

    In this book we learn more of the Black, Weir powers and what the purpose of the weir is. We even learn some on the work between Morrigan and Jack. Caitlin isn't afraid to push her characters and break them, I think that is part of what I enjoy most with this series along with the brutally truthful and humorous banter.

    If you enjoy dark magic and heavy banter, this is definitely a read for you. A great fun journey.
