Overview

Unclean Spirits (Black Son's Daughter Series #1) by M. L. N. Hanover

In a world where magic walks and demons ride, you can't always play by the rules.

Jayné Heller thinks of herself as a realist, until she discovers reality isn't quite what she thought it was. When her uncle Eric is murdered, Jayné travels to Denver to settle his estate, only to learn that it's all hers — and vaster than she ever imagined. And along with properties across the world and an inexhaustible fortune, Eric left her a legacy of a different kind: his unfinished business with a cabal of wizards known as the Invisible College.

Led by the ruthless Randolph Coin, the Invisible College harnesses demon spirits for their own ends of power and domination. Jayné finds it difficult to believe magic and demons can even exist, let alone be responsible for the death of her uncle. But Coin sees Eric's heir as a threat to be eliminated by any means — magical or mundane — so Jayné had better start believing in something to save her own life.

Aided in her mission by a group of unlikely companions — Aubrey, Eric's devastatingly attractive assistant; Ex, a former Jesuit with a lethal agenda; Midian, a two-hundred-year-old man who claims to be under a curse from Randolph Coin himself; and Chogyi Jake, a self-styled Buddhist with mystical abilities — Jayné finds that her new reality is not only unexpected, but often unexplainable. And if she hopes to survive, she'll have to learn the new rules fast — or break them completely....

Main character is compelling, a misfit raised in a religious family who finds she has powers she didn't know she had. I really enjoyed this book because it allowed for her growth as a person and a team member to fight evil. You also come away from the reading wanting to find out more about her and the other characters. I've grown VERY tired of Laurell Hamilton's obsession with sex and this was a refreshing alternative. I'm looking forward to more books in this series.

I thought that the plot was very well thought out. The book was written well and the characters were developed very well. The characters were all developed very well. Each which there own story behind the story. The idea behind the plot was not completely original but had a new twist added. This made the book very interesting and hard to put down. I would not recommend this for young readers due to language and some adult content scenes. I am interested to see how the story progresses in the next book.

It only took me three days to read this. It's fine if you're into a light summer read, but if you like to get lost in the story and care about the characters then this isn't the book for you. It seemed as though everything was glossed over. There was little character development and I found myself imagining the characters in a much different and interesting way than the author. I bought it at a used bookstore and I'm glad I didn't pay more than $3 for it.

I liked the main character well enough, and the secondary characters were okay. The storyline felt uneven, with too much focus on romance and relationships and not enough on the plot. The supernatural elements were imaginative and very different from the usual, and I would have enjoyed learning more about the underlying magical structure and creatures of this universe. It's an okay start, and I hope for better from the second book.

With any UF series, or any book series in general, I either heard of the series or heard nothing about but it. But what draws me in is either the story and cover. Or vice versa. This was a nice surprise. Throughout while reading, I was getting invested with what was going on, wanted to read more about these characters that I grew to like. And by the end of it, I liked the book. What I like more is it took me by surprise here and there. Just when I think its going in what direction, it goes another. It's kind of refreshing. This was a really good start to this series that I already want to read more from. Looking forward to reading about Janey and co again.
