    Marc was the greatest of all master demons, one of which legends were written. Marc who retired when he grew tired of the death and destruction he wrought for his former employer. He has grown weaker over time and now can barely dispatch a minor minion without being physically drained. He is loosing his demon that he has suppressed so long and becoming a mere human. He has found a refuge in an apartment building which has a hidden 13th floor. The building itself decides who may enter and find its hidden floor. He was the first tenant and looks at his neighbors as being under his protection.

    There is the alpha werewolf in 1302, the dragonslayer in 1303, the harbinger of death in 1304, the banshee in 1305 and the vampire in 1306 just to name some of the them. He was so tired of having to be the responsible one,, always needing to keep the others safe from harm and danger. Especially when he needed to protect them from themselves; like Kiral, the junkie vamp in 1306. He was out looking for a fix when he saved him from a demon this morning and now the butt has gone and bitten Harriett, the banshee in 1305 to feed off of. He is going to have to kill his friend if he keeps up.

    The bright spot in his life is Mae, the owner operator of the diner just down from his apartment. Then Vetis, his old co-worker finds him and decides he wants to make points with the boss and bring him back into the fold. Suddenly all hell literally breaks loose on the streets of Carmine and Marc watches as his town burns around him. Can the love of a saint like Mae save him or is he doomed to be the right hand man to the devil himself forever? Christin Rains' the Marquis may be a short read but she has managed to fit a whole hidden world in those few pages. "1301: The Marquis is the first in a series of books on that hidden world the exist within our own. Come and join her as she explores it.

    I'm not sure how Christine Rains managed to do it, but she squee

    I'm not sure how Christine Rains managed to do it, but she squeezed the perfect villain, a Hellboy-of-a-hero and a fantastic heroine into such a short read with an ending that I truly enjoyed. Each character was given ample time on page and space to breathe and become characters to cheer for...or against (Vetis, I'm looking at you!)
    I am now a fan of The 13th Floor and must find out more.
