In a world where magic walks and demons ride, you can't always play by the rules. Jayné Heller thinks of herself as a realist, until she discovers reality isn't quite what she thought it was. When her uncle Eric is murdered, Jayné travels to Denver to settle his estate, only to learn that it's all hers -- and vaster than she ever imagined. And along with properties across the world and an inexhaustible fortune, Eric left her a legacy of a different kind: his unfinished business with a cabal of wizards known as the Invisible College. Led by the ruthless Randolph Coin, the Invisible College harnesses demon spirits for their own ends of power and domination. Jayné finds it difficult to believe magic and demons can even exist, let alone be responsible for the death of her uncle. But Coin sees Eric's heir as a threat to be eliminated by any means -- magical or mundane -- so Jayné had better start believing in something to save her own life. Aided in her mission by a group of unlikely companions -- Aubrey, Eric's devastatingly attractive assistant; Ex, a former Jesuit with a lethal agenda; Midian, a two-hundred-year-old man who claims to be under a curse from Randolph Coin himself; and Chogyi Jake, a self-styled Buddhist with mystical abilities -- Jayné finds that her new reality is not only unexpected, but often unexplainable. And if she hopes to survive, she'll have to learn the new rules fast -- or break them completely....

I've had this whole series for a couple of years, but somehow packed book 1 apart from the others, and then couldn't find it! So I never ...
I really liked Hanover's short story in [b:Down These Strange Streets|10559622|Down These Strange Streets|George R.R. Martin|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1311280365s/10559622.jpg|15466372], so I'm going to check out his books.
M.L.N. Hanover's Unclean Spirits is for you if you are looking for something new and different in the paranormal genre.The novel is centered on a young women named Jayne (pronounced zha-nay, not Jane, no idea why you would make up a name like that, anyways, I just continued to read it as Jane.I don’...
I’ve had this book on the shelf for a long time (years) and finally gotten around to reading it. During the introduction we meet Eric Heller, Jayné’s uncle, who is trying to meet up with a less than savory guy in a sleazy bar. Ultimately, Eric doesn’t survive the meeting but this is the reader’s f...
