Official Blurb:

Innocence is relative, and evil is damned hard to kill. . .

Kat Redding would love to take a break from the gruesome, dangerous work of hunting down rogue vampires and werewolves, battling for innocent lives. But there's no peace for Lady Death. Until Kat's young charge, Sienna, appears on her doorstep, escaped from the shadow-paradise of Delai. Sienna is weak, confused, desperate--human in the utmost. If Kat is going to have any hope of breaking the hold of Delai, she'll have to infiltrate the walls around the false sanctuary. And the only way she can do that is to trade in her battle-hardened, bloodthirsty vampire's body--for Sienna's human form.

With no weapons but her wits, Kat has to trust a demon, defeat an angel, and wrestle with her own rebel soul--because with all the fear and death she's conquered, no one has ever offered her another day under a warm yellow sun. .

 

Review (Possible Spoilers Below):



Kat Redding is a force to be reckoned with and will not let any obstacle, may that be friend or foe, get into her way. Kat, much like Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson, often finds herself in multiple life threatening situations at a time. She cannot seem to keep herself out of trouble nor out of the sites of some pretty nefarious characters. Add in multiple branches of her paranormal world wanting to add her set of talents to their roster, Kat's life will never be boring. A particular section of the 4th book in this series wrecked me so much that I had to step directly into Souls of the Damned to discover the ending result.

I will say that without reading the previous 4 books one would not have the knowledge they needed going into this story. I love E.S. Moore's ability to foreshadow forthcoming events in each of her books that spill into the next one. I will admit I purchased the first book in this series well over a year ago. If I had known that this series would come to rival other kick ass heroine urban fantasy novels. I wouldnt have waited so long to read this series. If you as a reader are in search of a new ferocious heroine, Kat Redding's story is for you! I would also like to thank netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a free ARC of this book in return for an honest review.
