My rating: 3.5 of 5 flames
This is a darker, grittier series than I normally would go for, but I really got into it. Jayné realized that she’s been winning fights that she shouldn’t have been the victor in. Her demon hunting skills are way off the charts. This can’t be normal, right?
She is pretty certain she has a “rider” in her body (she’s possessed by a demon). But a lot of this book is internal. She isn’t able to have the rider exorcised from her body, at least not immediately, so she and Ex, who’s so obviously in love with Jayné, try different routes.
One thing though, is that Jayné begins to realize that she may not want to get rid of her rider. So a big part of her internal debate is in dealing with the nature of her demon.
For me, this book was a bit on the slow side, although that may be due in part to the amount of introspect on Jayné’s part. It was hard for me to relate to her, though, and if I don’t relate to a character when it’s told in first person (as most of this is), I have a hard time really liking the book.
One thing, though, is that if you like more of a dark and intense Urban Fantasy with a thriller vibe, you will love this series.
