Other books by this author which I have reviewed include Hunter’s Prayer, Redemption Alley, Flesh Circus, Heaven's Spite, Dead Man Rising, Steelflower, The Devil’s Right Hand, Saint City Sinners, To Hell and Back, Death's Excellent Vacation, Chicks Kick Butt, Dark and Stormy Knights, Angel Town, Storm Watcher, Fire Watcher, Cloud Watcher, Mindhealer, The Iron Wyrm Affair, The Red Plague Affair, Dark Watcher, To Hell and Back

A standalone book that I’m hoping Saintcrow turns into a series!

My Take

I want to read more of Chess’ adventures as a demon-hunting librarian. Does her sister, Charlie, get in on the action? How does her relationship with Ryan evolve? Does she keep the Maliks in line? How does all this affect the prejudice surrounding the Drakulein?

It all starts when Chess uncovers a hidden cache of magic books under the library and destroys a nasty demon that’s surviving on the flesh of children. Unfortunately, that good deed brings Chess to the attention of both sides who view her existence with great dread.

The adventures that follow will have you on the edge of your seat, in a good way, and the end will have you cheering for more!
