Urban fantasy/to review
Yes I listened to yet another Eve Langlais book. They are always fun, and different from each other.
Sadie is 40+. Yes, an older heroine! She doesn´t have any friends anymore, just her work. No man. And then suddenly she sees freaky demons, and what the heck. What is going on?! I liked that she hid, I mean who wouldn´t! She says she is a coward, she says she can´t fight, and she is right. She is real. It will not be easy.
So Sadie can see demons. They are real. There is a weird guy with a scythe killing demons. She seems to have magic, and she needs to learn to handle it.
People are really dying left and right in this one. These are some freaky demons. Creepy and small, and deadly.
It ends sort of well. I mean all hell is about to break loose, but that is for another day.
Actionfilled, and maybe maybe some romance lurking...or at least passion? Who knows about the future.
Good narration. She kept a good pace and did action and other parts well. She also got the feel of Sadie and I felt i was there with them
Turns out there are monsters in the world. Why couldn't my midlife crisis involve a new hairstyle? I went from ordinary working gal to demon killer. Sounds exciting? Not really, seeing as how I got fired from my job, my apartment was trashed, and the cops think I'm involved in something shady.
Especially that cute detective who keeps questioning me . . .
Pity there's no time to flirt, what with all the demons that keep emerging from sewer grates and subway tunnels. Something has to be done before they overrun the city. If only that something didn't involve me!
I never asked to be a heroine, but apparently, I've been chosen and now I must reap what fate has bestowed before chaos is sown.
