Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Slade's (Forged of Shadows) latest entry in her gritty crossover urban fantasy series The Marked Souls is permeated with more sex than romance. Jonah Walker is possessed by a repentant demon that enhances his abilities and drives him to earn redemption by fighting evil spirits. He needs to help a newly-possessed woman assimilate her demon and recruit her to fight beside him, but she's not what Jonah expects. The tough and jaded Nim is an unabashed stripper who turns a few tricks on the side. She's a lover, not a fighter, and thinks superhuman strength, speed, and deadly skills will make her a star in Vegas. Jonah realizes the cheap jewelry Nim pawned is the demonic weapon needed to channel and control her powers, but now Corvus, Jonah's worst enemy, has the weapon in his hands and is determined to get the girl that goes with it. Both Jonah and Nim are physically and psychologically damaged, creating a raw overtone that permeates the complex story and deepens the tension of their push-pull attraction without overloading the angst. (Apr.)

    The story line is filled with action, but driven by the lead couple

    When Jonah Walker was mortal he was a dedicated missionary doing the Lord's work. However, the pious Jonah has become immortal after a stint with a demon; but he finds his world filled with anger and violence. His biggest issue with adapting to his change is he misses his beloved wife and other family members as he welcomes death that can never come.

    In Chicago Nim "Naughty Nymphette" Hamlin entered the underworld not of her own fruition as she never believed such a realm existed. She struggles with adapting her battered belief system that scoffed at demons existing to a new reality, but apparently she has enthralled one of them. As for Jonah the righteous, she knows she will never be his equal nor will she ever be his partner except in a battle against evil.

    The latest Marked Souls urban romantic fantasy stars two compassionate flawed protagonists; each struggling with a radically different reality than what they believed for most of their lives. The story line is filled with action, but driven by the lead couple who at that first look were unsure whether heaven or hell took over their heart. Though a glossary and a Possession classification are included, to better understand the scope of the Slade Shadows saga readers should start with the previous entries in the mythos (see Forged of Shadows and Seduced of Shadows).

    Action Packed. Smart. Unforgettable!

    Jessa Slade does it again! I could not put this book down! I think it's Slade's best novel so far. Jonah is endearing. Nim is a survivor; someone you can't help but root for. I love that about her. I highly, highly recommend this book! Well done, Jessa Slade!
