This is the sequel to "Singer of Souls." The first book was wonderful, until about 3/4s of the way through and then it got weird and ugly and I didn't like the ending at all.
Then, to my relief, I see a sequel came out! This book focuses on Douglas Stewart's (from Singer of Souls) siblings and their search for Douglas.
I thought this book was much better - the characters were a lot more likable than Douglas ever was. However, this book took me only a day to read! Way too short! And of course it is only setup for the next book in the series, which isn't out yet.
Over the two books, I am really liking the series. Had their been only the first book, I wouldn't recommend reading it.
Now, however, these books are so short and leave you wanting more RIGHT NOW!, so I suggest waiting until more have been written before starting the series and possibly getting hooked.

Someone told me that book 2 was better than book one. 'Better' is a relative term. Both books are full of swearing, carnage, and nasties. The bits of cute in between do make this book better than the one that came before, but not really all that much. I have no wish to read book three, despite the dangling ending in book two.

Basic plot: Douglas' younger brother Scott gets Douglas' half-fairy baby to care for, even though Scott is suffering from PTSD and can barely function. Fortunately he has hob-goblins and brownies helping. Douglas' older sister Bridie goes to Scotland to find out what really happened to Grandma McLaren, as she knows Douglas couldn't have murdered her. Lots of vulgarity, blood and death happen along the way.
