Hannah Jayne's "Under Attack" is a Sure Winner!

Under Attack By: Hannah Jayne Copyright: November 2011 Publisher: Kensington Books She's one of the Underworld Detection Agency's best. But her job is really starting to bite . . Sophie Lawson is a human immune to magic, which comes in handy for helping paranormal beings transition into everyday life. But fallen angel Alex Grace and his search for the Vessel of Souls is one curse she never saw coming. Suddenly an unexplainable string of killings and destruction has even San Francisco's demons fearing for their immortal lives. And Sophie isn't about to trust Alex's all-too-vulnerable charm or his secret agenda. Now their hunt is revealing dangerous secrets about Sophie's past, and a malevolent power hellishly close to turning one irreverent human into the ultimate supernatural weapon. . . After a long day at work, dealing with all the monsters and their problems, Sophie is in desperate need of a nice relaxing bath. Unfortunately she is invaded in said bath by none other than Fallen Angel Alex Grace. Alex only appears in Sophie's life when he needs something from her. This will not bode well for her. Alex talks her into "helping" with his investigation into the deaths of a number of demons in the S.F. area. So you then add in the fact that Sophie is totally loved by everyone she works with, and unfortunately her new boss Dixon Andrade is not one of those people. He's been sent in to replace Pete Simpson and he's going to make HIS changes from day one. As the only mortal in the company (even though she is the best customer svc. person there) Sophie is afraid for her job. Between these two opposing sets of problems you can add the fact that when she is let go from the agency that she's been at her whole working life you can see that Sophie is not in the best of shape. What she finds out about herself and how her friends stand by her while she's doing this make for a fantastic second book in the Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles series. Hannah Jayne has constructed an Urban Fantasy world where the Demons and Monsters are registered and monitored in our world. It's different and has me staying up all night just to finish it in one sitting. FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book from the publisher who only asked for a fair and impartial review.

book one/two review

Thought I'd throw these in as a single review because one interacts with the other. The story line was fun and kept me reading but there were inconsistencies between this and the first that drew me out of the story. FREX in book 1 she's five-foot-five in book two she's five-two---almost stopped straight out in the first book (read this one first) when Sophie looked out the office window to check the weather when they are roughly 37 floors below the police station...which I take to mean underground rather than the policestation is on the 38th floor since they enter the police station and go down,is this a magic window?

THe lead characters constant drifting off while she admires all the men she's dealing with got distracting to this reader and I started thinking she was something of an airhead and she never really did anything to push that out of my thought process. Not sure I remember one time when she actually did something sensible or got herself out of a jam. Not saying they didn't happen but if they did they weren't memorbale.

Inconcistency number umpteen. Book one ended woth her reading the story of her life in Grandma's letters then book two opens with her firmly believing herself to be nothing more than a human magical immune although it seemed fairly well-established by the end of book one that she was at least a cross breed. I suppose all that info could have wafted out of her head on an air current.

A little more attention to detail and a little more courage and intelligence on behalf of the heroine and these would have been great books.
