    Urban Fantasy at it best!

    This is the sequel to Trick of the Light. The story revolves around Trixa, a bar owner, and Griffin and Zeke, two young men who she's taken in. I can't bring myself to give away too much of what happens because part of the enjoyment of reading these books is Trixa's telling of the story, and how she deliberately leaves out information that is important. I loved how she managed to blow me away at the end of the first book. I never saw the end coming. This book continues the clever storytelling.

    One of my favorite things about Rob's writing is how she develops her character and builds the relationships between them. Griffin and Zeke are a wonderful example of this - their relationship is funny, emotional and sweet. Trixa and Leo's relationship develops in this book as well.

    All I can say is these books should be on the shelf of anyone who loves urban fantasy. The characters are phenomenal, the dialogue is smart and the world is rich and believable. She is, by far, one of the best writers of the genre out there. Not only would I recommend these to friends & strangers alike, I would buy them as gifts. And I will most defintely read them again and again.

    terrific urban fantasy

    To look at Las Vegas bar owner Trixa Iktomi, one would assume she is a beautiful female human. They would be wrong as she is a shapeshifting trickster who is not immortal but witnessed Pompeii die. Her partner is Leo, better known as Loki the Trickster God. Now this couple is human ever since Trixa used an artifact to kill the being who murdered her brother (see Trick of the Light). The artifact The Light of Life took their powers as it thought Loki might being with Trixa who needs four years to recharge her powers so she can use them again..

    The demon Eli calls on Trixa to find out who are mass murdering demons. Angels, demons and Trixa and her friend Zeke the angel who left heaven and Gabriel the demon who left hell (the latter seeks redemption) map out the massacre of nine hundred and fifty-six demons in six months. If one thousand demon wings are put together they will form a map to where Lucifer hides in hell and the entity that is doing this will gain hell's power. Trixa's friends and enemies expect her to find out who is doing this and take the deity down.

    The second Trixa the Trickster urban fantasy is a terrific thriller as twists and questionable alliances make for an enjoyable entreating tale. Some angels believe Trixa is evil and needs to be destroyed with the end justifying the means in this case as betrayal and lies are acceptable to achieve the mission; ironically some demons logically understand they need Trixa to uncover the identity of the serial killer so pragmatically keep her safe. Rob Thurman is at his best with Trixa the trickster caught in the middle of a supernatural Vegas.

    I read a lot of books from many different genres. This series about Trixia got my attention when I was in a trickster phase ,but I have kept coming back to Ms.Thurman's worlds and truly believe this is one of her best books so far..... And I know I am awaiting her next book just as are all the people I recommend this book to.
    So enjoy and get ready the roller coaster that's about to begin from that very first chapter.

    Great sequel!

    I was slow to get into this series, because the 1st book was so different from the Cal & Niko series, but I love this book. Trixa is a more fully-realized character now and the pacing is better that Trick of the Light. Hope Rob Thurman keeps going with this series!
