Detective Paige Whiskey comes from a long line of witches. They may not all be the most powerful, but they are outspoken and supportive of their community. She alone has no gifts. She can’t summon fire, can’t read minds. She knows the arcane. She’s studied it. That, along with her connection to the Whiskey Witches, lands her some pretty strange cases.
Like the sacrificial murders of St. Francisville, Louisiana. There’s a killer on the loose, choosing people in a vain attempt to raise a demon. Not just any demon, though. A man born long ago, made a demon in order to protect the Gate to Hell.
Together with demon hunter, Dexx Colt, her kitchen-witch grandmother, and her paranormal investigator brother-in-law, they unravel a conspiracy far bigger than a few simple murders, and re-discover Paige’s gift.
She’s a demon summoner and she’s key to the killer’s plan.
REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was unlike any book I've ever read in the paranormal genre having to do with angels and demons. The basic story line is very good. The author does a wonderful job of showing the whole spectrum emotions of the main character, Paige, as she reacquires her gifts and her memories.
The action seemed a little off-kilter, either there wasn't enough of it, or there was too much and it was getting confusing. Speaking of confusing, the entire background story was confusing. I just couldn't seem to get a grasp on it. As a reader, that was very frustrating to me.
The background story behind angels and demons was so backwards from everything that you have been taught, you really need to re-wire your brain while reading this book. I wasn't sure I liked that. It was good in that it allowed the author to flesh out the demons a little more, but the angels just seemed so off, so wrong somehow.
