In past books we were introduce to a handful of side characters that never sounded like they would ever get their own books. Just helpful people on the sidelines to get the job of the main characters stuff done.
One such person was necromancer Jaime Vegas. A 40-something sexy red head of a television star who uses her powers to pad her starlet lifestyle on the medium circuit. The next two I never would have guessed would be rewritten into the books for one solid fact:
But what happens to us when we pass over? All supernaturals know that there is an afterlife, otherwise what are necromancers for?
In this book Eve Levine struggles with the prospect of giving up on the living world completely. Her daughter is still there after all. She wants, and needs, to make sure she is okay. With the help of Savannahs father, Kristof Nast, and Jaime Vegas, Eve tries to solve the puzzle of a century old serial killer who inhabits the bodies of women. A Nix she’s called and she loves her chaos, often leading both victims and hosts down a treacherous path of destruction.
The Fates have asked Eve to deal with it after already sending a handful of angels that have either been driven insane, thrown into alternate dimensions, or gone M.I.A.
Naturally Eve tells them where to stick it.
I enjoy how Kelley Armstrong has the ability to introduce her characters seamlessly and use the different voices of each character in such a way that you still enjoy the writing, but get new perspective each time. Eve is a little darker than the last few books because she was into dark magic, she was fine with killing someone as long as it was a means to an end or they were in her way and it was unavoidable. On the other side, she protected her daughter from this knowledge and she loves her kid and is motherly.
She always makes it interesting for us.
