About the Book: Get in. Get the job done. Get out. Get paid.
It’s a simple motto that I’ve lived by for the last five years. It’s kept me alive and made me rich.
There’s no love lost between me and the supernatural beings who walk the world beside us. But when it comes to being able to retrieve valuable information from the dead, Necromancer Riley Stone is the only game in town. They know it. I know it too, and that’s why my services aren’t cheap.
The archangel Benjamin hired me to find out why he has a new demon problem. Three demon interrogations in, and the only thing I know is that the demons are in hot pursuit of a nameless young woman. She’s here on Calamata Island, and the demon officials are willing to risk Benjamin’s wrath to grab her.
But I found her first, and she’s nothing like what I expected. In my line of work, you can’t afford to let anyone get too close. But there’s something about Paige Matthews that I can’t shake, and she needs my help. I won’t turn her over to Benjamin until I help her find out why the demons are after her.
So now I’ve got a demon problem, and I’m in way over my head. [Description from Goodreads.com]
My Review: I'm going to start off by saying this isn't the best book ever written. It is, however - a very interesting and entertaining read. And if I wasn't so busy with other review books at the moment, I would have one-clicked part two so hard. I read a lot of paranormal romance, and urban fantasy/science fiction, and this still managed to feel different and original. I'd love a little more depth to the demons and the world, but that's something that will come with time. We're jumping into the world just like Paige, but we get the benefit of Riley's knowledge as well.
I'd definitely say that this author, and this series, is one to keep an eye on. I can't wait to see where it goes, and I've already eyed Ivy Sinclair's back list of titles for future reads. Also, please allow me a moment to drool over the cover.
Cover Lovin': C'mon guys, you know what I"m going to say - this cover just does it for me. I love it!
Recommendation: Make sure you keep in mind that this is a serial novel, so don't expect any resolution to the plot. Be prepared to one-click part 2!
Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5). Great read! I liked the characters, and I like where this is going.
Make sure to get your copy of Protect Her part 1 from Amazon.com today - and check out Part 2 while you're at it!
