THE DEPARTED HAVE ARRIVED. The world is not the way it was. The dead have risen, and the living are under attack. The powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for banishing the wicked dead. But Chess is keeping a dark secret: She owes a lot of money to a murderous drug lord named Bump, who wants immediate payback in the form of a dangerous job that involves black magic, human sacrifice, a nefarious demonic creature, and enough wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust for a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is really worth it. Hell, yeah.

4.0 Makes for a great start
***Possible spoilers you’ve been warned*** I really enjoyed the world building in this book and wished there was a little more explanation about it.

4.0 Unholy Ghosts - Review
Much better than I was anticipating. I thought I would have an issue with the substance abuse (and I did, partially) but Kanes world, characters and writing far outweighed any negative views I might have had. I felt Chess's substance abuse issue were portrayed realistically (not that I've ever had...

4.0 Unholy Ghosts
I tried to get through this book four times before I actually did. It's about as gritty as you get, the world sort-of reminded me of the movie Sin City, but darker and obviously full of ghosts. The main characters "lifestyle" is really hard to experience. But in many ways this book is amazing, uniqu...

4.0 Unholy Ghosts
Holy goodness! I put off reading this for YEARS. Big mistake. I think because I'm not that into Urban Fantasy anymore. This is a great series though and I'm sorry it took me so long to pick it up. It's reminiscent of Karen Moning's Darkfever series as far as a cool setting and kick-ass heroine. The ...

0.0 Unholy Ghosts - marked as abandoned (for now)
I just can't bring myself to look past the writing style. The characters talk in a sort of street dialect. Sometimes it was difficult to understand what the characters meant to say, in the end it didn't make much sense to me. Or rather it took too much effort on my part. I will put it aside for now ...
