This is the 2nd time I've read The Better Part of Darkness and I have to say I have some serious issues with this book. The first being that Charlie's head is firmly wedge up her own ass. The woman complains about everything. Apparently everyone should be kind and friendly and just to Charlie becaus...

Am so tired of these types of books. Described as gritty - it would have been more appropriate to term this novel as grim. Likewise the h - supposedly edgy, driven, capable etc - but in reality I found her annoying, stubborn, unlikeable, and nowhere near my definition of kick ass - sure she gets h...

4 ½ StarsI'm so glad I finally read this book. Now I need to find the time to read the next ones.

I liked the way this ended, but I tell you what, I hated Charlie for more than half the book. She's probably the most depressing heroine I've ever had the misfortune to read. I hated her to the point where I even hated her kid. Which isn't totally surprising (to me) because I generally don't like...

I am having a lot of trouble with this review. Might be because it seems to be more of the same. But, when a formula works, why mess with it?

OMFG! This book is so freaking good! The action is intense and I fell deeply in love with several of the characters not just the FMC (female main character).Charlie has attitude and brains to back it up. This combination usually results in a great character. I think this is the only book I have ever...

I really loved this book. It was better than i expected. I'm not normally a fan of a heroine with a kid, but i was pleasantly surprised. Although i hope that if she gets Will back, that he won't be back in her life other than through her daughter. I enjoyed reading about the world, but more backgrou...

Urban Fantasy at its finest, the Charlie Madigan series will turn you into an addict. The Better Part of Darkness has strong sci-fi elements to it. Other worlds and the beings that inhabit them have made their presence known to our world. Atlanta is the chosen city, but will throwing its doors open ...

This one if full of action. No romance FYI. I did enjoy it. Charlie did grow as a character. For the first 2/3 of the book, she was very much a "I can't ask for help, must go it alone, can't talk about it" type of person. Things got better when she had to talk about it. The world created is in...
