I've never read anything quite like this. The story was amazingly original even though the feel of the story was gritty. The main character is stumbling through life by working a job to barely live and to get her next fix. Her job, however, is one facet of what makes this book so interesting. She is a debunker, a ghost banisher. And between the job she is assigned and others she knows from her drug involvement, her life is anything but boring. I am quite interested to see what will happen in the next book in this series. Different works well!

This book was OK. The main story was interesting and different. Basically the dead rise and start killing the living, so an organization called The Church (oh irony) or The Church Of Truth banishes them to an underground city made especially for them and proceeds to become the new government as the world abolishes all it's old religions now that "Truth is Fact." Chess is a witch who works for them as a Debunker, mostly disproving when people claim to gave a ghost (the church compensates you for your troubles) or banishing them to The City if there is one.

Initially I found her drug addiction made it hard to relate to her/accept her as my heroin, but it's effect wore off and by the end it didn't bother me as much, perhaps because the author gives some insight into her background and the causes for her addiction. Also, there is a LOT of narrative. That's all well and good, but sometimes I just like to hear (read) people talk and the constant inner monologue gets to be a bit much and I find myself skimming to see how far ahead I have to read before Terrible reappears (my favorite character at this point and a potential man for Chess).

All that being said, I enjoyed this read and having continued with the next books can honestly say this is now one of my FAVORITE series despite my initial hesitance.
