Witch hunts are on the rise and supernatural turf wars are reaching a boiling point. Then, just when it seems life couldn’t get any worse for Pete, Jack reappears—but he’s no longer the man she’s always known. Hell has changed him forever. And he’s brought back with him a whole world of trouble…
A cabal of necromancers are using ancient, unspeakable magic to turn the tide of war in their favor. Then, as the city is about to sink into chaos, Pete receives a chilling directive: To end the war, you must kill the crow-mage. Beset from all sides, Pete finds herself turning to an unholy source for help…even if doing so could destroy Black London—and life as she knew it—once and for all.
I keep on reading this series, and well it's really starting to get good. The apocolypse, the black creeping more and more into London. This world that has been created is magical (excuse the pun), it's original, and very creative. And an ending that will blow your mind. I was like WHAT!?!?!? What I don't like about these books, is Pete's attitude, her I'm a barney bad ass gets a lil old after a bit, but that doesn't deter me from the story oh no, I just roll my eyes at that, and yeah sometimes laugh cause come on, it's funny, and keep on reading.
Ms. Kittredge is a genious with the world she has created, this is a series I haven't ever came across before, the mix between fae, necromancers, mages, and the like is impressive, and keeps me wanting to read more. Which I will be because I'm dying to know what adventure and mayhem Pete and Jack will have next.
