REVIEW:


Vicious Grace (The Black Sun's Daughter, #3) by


For the first time in forever, Jayné Heller’s life is making sense. Even if she routinely risks her life to destroy demonic parasites that prey on mortals, she now has friends, colleagues, a trusted lover, and newfound confidence in the mission she inherited from her wealthy, mysterious uncle. Her next job might just rob her of all of them. At Grace Memorial Hospital in Chicago, something is stirring. Patients are going AWOL and research subjects share the same sinister dreams. Half a century ago, something was buried under Grace in a terrible ritual, and it’s straining to be free. Jayné is primed to take on whatever’s about to be let loose. Yet the greatest danger now may not be the huge, unseen force lurking below, but the evil that has been hiding in plain sight all along—taking her ever closer to losing her body, her mind, and her soul. . . .

My Thoughts:
An almost unexpected ending aside from the nagging thought in your mind that was finally calmed by the revelation. The convolutions of motivations and the horrific truths revealed were handled beautifully. Overall the book is a wonderful continuation of Jayne's tale.

REVIEW: Darker Angels (The Black Sun's Daughter, #2) Darker Angels (The Black Sun's Daughter, #2)

 
When Jayné Heller's uncle Eric died, she inherited a fortune beyond all her expectations -- and a dangerous mission in a world she never knew existed. Reining in demons and supernatural foes is a formidable task, but thankfully Jayné has vast resources and loyal allies to rely on. She'll need both to tackle a bodyswitching serial killer who's taken up residence in New Orleans, a city rich in voodoo lore and dark magic.
Working alongside Karen Black, a highly confident and enigmatic ex-FBI agent, Jayné races to track down the demon's next intended host. But the closer she gets, the more convinced she becomes that nothing in this beautiful, wounded city is exactly as it seems. When shocking secrets come to light, and jealousy and betrayal turn trusted friends into adversaries, Jayné will soon come face-to-face with an enemy that knows her all too well, and won't rest until it has destroyed everything she loves most....

My Thoughts:
** spoiler alert ** An interesting follow to the first book and opened in a beautifully deceitful manner. The way that the Loa was integrated into the culture of New Orleans was magnificent and the manner in which it was done fit Hanover's universe beautifully.
