"With more action than your typical action movie"
The Cirque de Charnu has come to Jill Kismet's city and she
isn't happy about it. They clean out the demons and the
suicides before moving on but if they put one toe out of
place Jill is going to kick them out as quickly as
possible. They just have to keep within the rules.
Then some Cirque performers die and Kismet has to find out
why before the truce is held for null and void. She knows
she didn't do it but the Cirque isn't so sure and would
love to make the whole city a huge carnival of horror. If
that isn't enough there are exorcisms to perform and
zombies to kill. Kismet has enough to do and could do with
Yet again Kismet starts clearing up someone else's mess and
trying not to get killed in the process. Though this time
it isn't just Kismet's life on the line but her
relationship with Saul. Has he finally given up on her?
Book four in the Jill Kismet series is as deep, dangerous
and dark as the previous three books. The story doesn't
waste any time and jumps right into things which left me a
little shocked at first. It took a couple of chapters to
get the feel for the world of Jill Kismet again but once I
was back, I was hooked. The story catches you and keeps you
prisoner till the end and is so fast paced that you have no
time to take a break.
Lilith Saintcrow has created one of the toughest, kick-ass
female urban fantasy heroines around. Jill Kismet is hard
as nails and knows her stuff. If you haven't already
dropped into her world and taken a look then I suggest you
give it a try. With more action than your typical action
movie this series makes for thrilling reading and will
leave you gasping for more.
