    The world from Jack's Point of View

    I missed seeing the action from Pete's point of view. Jack is the narrator in this entry in the series, and as such I found it a lot harsher than the first. Jack has no illusions about what his future holds, doesn't cut himself much slack, and isn't the nice guy down deep Pete hopes/wishes for him to be.

    To me, this was a darker book. We do get a better look at the world, and more info into what happened to Jack those 13 years ago when he fell off the face of the map. And I did have a lot of sympathy for him. Just not enough at times to actually like him much.

    Jack and Pete are back with and tending to Jacks issues.

    There are a few things I enjoyed in the book. The gritty magic which Kittredge takes to the next level in this book with necromancers, fey, and death knocking on the door, then we have the banter and love/hate relationship between Jack and Pete. This couple is not for everyones taste (even the other characters in the books hate Jack), but I do love their sarcasm to cover some feelings and the brutal honesty toward each other on other feelings. Pete seems to be the one more honest and Jack seems to avoid the truth or tell lies until he has no other option.

    This book seems to focus a little more on Jack and his past come back to bite him. When the book started Jack really came across to me as a royal *ss. And his royal treatment didn't seem to be aimed at one person but to everyone, even Pete whom he feels for and will protect her with his life. I even started to think Jack was like that mean little boy is school that loves to torment and pick on that one girl he really liked. As you see more into the depths of the characters through other emotions and situations you start to see there is more to them and see their growth. Pete, herself, has a tough rough exterior to her as well. She can dish out and take the punches, physically and verbally, with Jack and the best of them.

    I was a little let down in I hoped this book would be geared more toward Pete learning to use her magic and growth, but it was set more for Jack. Which is a great story! I was just hoping for more Pete. I did get the feel this book has some of the second story or middle books syndrome. This book seemed to be the shifting book for the next story in plot and character setting. I do think with the way this book ended I will get more of Pete in the third one along with more on the Black and their guardians they work for.

    Better than the first one.

    I was surprised by how much I liked the first one and it's characters. I like dark fantasy but I was turned off by the drug theme when I started to read it. I ended up loving it and the male lead and I very much liked the switch in the second book to his point of view.

    Fans will relish this extremely dark urban fantasy

    Punk rocker Jack Winter died thirteen years ago, but walks the streets of London because he made a Faustian deal with a demon in which he bought time (see Street Magic) but now the mage is back on the brink of death again. As the demon scorns his mortality, Jack fought death before and plans to do so again; as he will not go mildly into the night. His muse to live is Detective Inspective Pete Caldecott who saw him make that original deal when she was a teen.

    Jack has kept Pete in the dark about his deal. She is irritated with him because she senses he is hiding something from her. When he goes to Thailand in a Hail Mary ploy to save his life, she follows him; not understanding what is going on, but knowing whatever it is will prove nasty.

    The second grim tour of Caitlin Kittredge's Black London is bleak and gruesome as the shadows seem ubiquitously ready to reach out to abduct the souls, minds, and bodies of the innocent. Jack is terrific as he faces his "maker" while Pete is his reason to live; in his mind she is a much nobler cause than his previous quest for life. Fans will relish this extremely dark urban fantasy as the malevolent and sinister stalk and lurk everywhere while wondering if Jack can survive having died once before.
