When you’re staring evil in the eye, don’t forget to watch your back . . . 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. . . .

But I'm angry enough that I may not read the next one; I hated the ending that much. I was close to tears with anger and sorrow. Until the end, this was a solid story al...
"Be Careful With What You Wish For" -- and man, how it does in this case. See, when the first chapter brings Kim (Aubrey's ex-wife) back, I cheer inside because I want her to be part of the troop again. My selfish reason is because I want her back with Aubrey, giving a chance for Ex to make a move o...
3.5 StarsLike a punch to the gut, you are taken by surprise, feet kicked out from under you, gasping for air, and mind reeling. After some revelations about the mysterious Eric are discovered more than one of our characters will feel this way. JaynÉ, Aubrey, Chogyi Jake and Ex are called in as reinf...
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.
