Overview

Lincoln Marshall is a small-town deputy with a very big problem. Six members of his church have been found dead, killed by a rogue werewolf. He'll have to make a deal with the Devil to save victims that have gone missing - maybe literally.

Elise Kavanagh, preternatural investigator and exorcist, is the expert when it comes to violent deaths at the jaws of evil. She's also the demon known as the Godslayer. Elise jumps at Lincoln's case, and it's not just because of his down-home charm. Someone's laid a trap for her in Northgate, and she wants to find out who.

She'll have to team up with Rylie Gresham, Alpha of the last surviving werewolf pack, to figure out who's trying to blame the murders on werewolves. Only together can they stop the killings - and uncover the secrets buried in Northgate.

    Deputy Lincoln Marshall is a God-fearing man who wants to save h

    Deputy Lincoln Marshall is a God-fearing man who wants to save his small town from a series of horrific murders.  Given the apparent supernatural origin of these crimes, he needs some special help, so he turns to Elise Kavanagh, who is uniquely qualified for this assignment.  Investigator of supernatural crimes, former exorcist and demon hunter, and gun for hire, Elise also happens to be a powerful demon.  When it appears that the murders may have been committed by werewolves, Elise goes on the hunt, but what she finds isn’t quite what she bargained for.  Old wounds from her past are re-opened as Elise has to decide whose side she is on and who she can trust.

    This is the first in a series.  The basic story line was promising, but I think the author tried to jam pack too much into this one book, and even too much into just one character.  While it’s clear that Elise was once human and is now a demon, there’s a lot of other stuff going on with her character.  Apparently she’s also Eve (as in Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden), and, oh, yeah, she killed God.  After a certain point I just stopped trying to figure it all out.   There are witches, demons, werewolves, angels, etc., which is great because I understand that an author has to build an entire world to populate the novels, but it was a little forced, almost as if the author was trying to capitalize on every aspect of urban fantasy that’s popular right now.  There are even zombies in this world.   I could see definite influences from Kim Harrison, for example, and her Hollows series, as well as book like Angelology.  And did anyone else laugh at the priest’s name—Mikhail Night?  (You have to be a child of the 80s and love Knight Rider to get it.)

    I love this series! I love that there's everything I enjoy about

    I love this series! I love that there's everything I enjoy about a book in it. I am so excited that each of her characters from other series have continued on into this one.  I love Riley. I love the werewolves. I love Elise. I love her demon hunting team! I love where this went, because even if you haven't read any other book from any other series, you would still be ok to read this. BUT you should be reading everything she touches :) 




    So, Elise is our main character. She is a complicated being LOL I really don't want to give away spoilers, so I am going to try to be careful. She has a bad attitude, well, I actually like her attitude, but a lot of people will find her a little blunt. She kills demons. She has demon powers. She's smart, she's tough, she's definitely someone you should be scared of, and then, you can't out run her, so you might as well be on her side. She would be a fun friend! And with all of that, she has a heart, and a soft side, and compassion, and empathy. Hard to believe, but that's why I love her. She is one of the most complex characters I've ever read! She's my hero! 




    Lincoln is the sweet, good boy, by the book, deputy in a small town. He's asked for Elise's help, and holy crap, this opened the can of worms, and things just go nuts. I liked him, because those he comes off as the goody two shoes, he's inner monologue is AWESOME! It's the perfect guy thing, because they really do think about sex a lot, and even the good ones can't help themselves sometimes. And now, this starts the fall. 




    There are some seriously creepy people in here. The bad guys are gunna have your jaw dropping, and then you'll still be in shock with the ending. You get to see so many wonderful previous characters and you get to meet some new great ones. I wasn't a big fan of James in the beginning, and now, I know why, but I can't tell you. The wolves just have me, I love them. And you will be second guessing yourself at every moment. The mysteries and action had me completely glued to the page. I could not put this book down. I actually jumped right in to book two! It's a wonderful, action packed, mysterious ride of crazy! I love it, I want more, I need for it to be a continuous gimme gimme hahahaha :) I will stop now, because I have to figure out how To tell you about book 2 without spoilers :) 5 EXTREMELY AWESOME FANTASTIC ASS KICKING PAWS!
