Once again as the narrator changed, I found myself taking a while to warm up to Eve (and missing both Elena and Paige). Perhaps because Eve had been seen as a slightly bad person in the other books, it was hard at first to want to like her and want to hear her story. But I did find myself warming to Eve and liking her story and feeling awful about her situation. And I shed a few tears at the end. Once again, Armstrong does a great job with descriptions (although there are some points where I almost wished it wasn't a great job - in the minds of killers and when Eve goes to the hell where the murderers are, especially the cave *shudder*).
Best so far in a terrific series (Women of the Otherworld). Eve Levine (half demon, witch ghost) teams up with the love of her life and afterlife, Kris and a down to earth angel to track down and recapture a demi-demon who has been feeding the need for chaos through serial murders. The characters (as always) are very real, the plot is well done and the ending is satisfying. Note to new readers - this series is FAR better if started at the beginning, due to the large cast of rotating characters.
Really enjoyed the bad but misunderstood witch, Eve's story. She is reunited with her sorcerer lover, Kristof, in the ghost realm. The plot is full of twists and turns and a surprising ending !
My first foray into dark fantasy and definitely my favorite of the series. Eve's connection to her daughter is heartbreaking, and I remember really loving the plot. It's also not as explicit as earlier works by Armstrong.
If you enjoy the Fantasy genre, this is a good one. By the author of "Industrial Magic", the book combines the Fates, scenes from the Afterlife and practical, everyday, mundane life of the living.
