Elise Kavanagh is good at one thing: killing demons, angels, and gods. For years, she was the death that supernatural creatures feared. More myth than woman, she walked the Earth as the embodiment of vengeance. But Elise doesn't want anything to do with destiny. She wants time off to spend with her only friend and former investigative partner, James Faulkner - a powerful witch, the only person she trusts - and try to be a normal person, whatever that means.
Destiny hasn't forgotten her. It's not easy to retire when you were born to be a killing machine. Old enemies still hold bitter grudges against Elise.

And there are still gods that need to be killed It's been five years since she killed her last enemy, and life has been quiet since then. She went to college. Got a job, and then lost it. Made a friend or two. Lived a normal life.

Now her former partner, a powerful witch named James Faulkner, wants Elise to fight one more time. The daughter of a coven member has been possessed, and Elise is the only exorcist nearby. Becoming a hero again would mean risking discovery by old enemies. But digging into the case reveals that it might already be too late--bodies are disappearing, demons slither through the night, and the cogs of apocalypse are beginning to turn. Some enemies aren't willing to let the secrets of the past stay dead But an attack from a powerful necromancer forced her back into the business, and now she's trying to balance her normal boyfriend and normal job with everything supernatural.
He's enslaving angels and stealing ethereal artifacts in pursuit of forbidden immortality, and an old grudge drives him to make his final stand in Elise's territory. Destroying her life and killing her friends isn't the goal, but it's a definite perk. Elise held up a hand. He closed his eyes and took a breath. Their marriage counselor harped on him about counting to ten when he was getting too angry, but he gave it to twenty this time. Marisa and Elise headed up the stairs.
Augustin followed a of steps behind, watching the legs of the supposed exorcist. Another scar marred her ankle, like a dog bite that had long since healed into a fleshy white mass, and his stomach turned.

Some accountant. Elise spoke to Marisa as they walked, oblivious to the reaction her scars evoked.
Have you summoned any demons or used a Ouija board? Her voice was hardly louder than a whisper. Not… sexual. But she kept waking up screaming. In the picture, the Ramirezes were tan and smiling. She dreamed a monster ate her heart and sat in her chest. She has a condition. All the doors were open but hers. They gave us the option of waiting to see if she would improve or sticking her in an institution.
Elise approached the door Marisa indicated, and the Ramirezes hung back. The girl became quieter as she grew near. When she stood before the door, Lucinde became entirely silent. Heavy curtains cast the room in near-complete darkness, and a portable swamp cooler made the air chill and muggy. A white canopy bed blocked the back half of the darkened room. There were multiple obstacles strewn across the floor: an overstuffed comforter, rose-colored pillows in varying sizes, and a toy chest. Possible hiding places included the closet and the shadowed area behind a pink trunk with princess costumes draped over the sides.
No girl in sight. It felt confined. She moved toward the window, hugging the wall, and stepped over a toy unicorn with blood caking the mane to its neck. Ears perked for any hint of motion, she jerked aside the first layer of curtains, then the second. She dropped to her hands and knees and leaned her cheek close to the carpet.

A pair of luminous eyes stared back at her. The girl under the bed looked nothing like Marisa. Her knees were heavily bruised, purple and black and brown on the edges. The flesh on her shins looked like broiled strawberries. Elise glanced at the swamp cooler. Lucinde tried to jerk away when she touched her foot, but Elise caught her ankle, pulling her foot into the light. A few remaining flakes of pink nail polish decorated her toenails under caked blood. One nail had been torn out. Elise pulled the chains of her necklace over head and picked a bronze pendant from amongst the other charms.
The whites of her eyes were almost yellow, shot through with crimson veins, and a long, low hiss issued from between her lips. This is definitely not a romance. I think I would classify it as horror or paranormal.
The book pretty much wore me out so I am not sure when or if I will read the next book. It was very readable after you get about a third of the way in. We never find out why she was in the field with the bodies so maybe that will be in the next book. There is at least five books for those of you that like series books. I am going back and forth about what to rate it-not even sure how well I even liked it.
Okay here goes- 3 stars and hopefully the next book answers some questions! Share this: Email Print Tweet.
