Publisher's Summary

Eve Levine - half-demon, black witch, and devoted mother - has been dead for three years. She has a great house, an interesting love life, and can't be killed again - which comes in handy when you've made as many enemies as Eve has. Yes, the afterlife isn't too bad. All she needs to do is find a way to communicate with her daughter, Savannah, and she'll be happy.But fate - or more exactly, the Fates - have other plans. Eve owes them a favor, and they've just called it in. An evil spirit called the Nix has escaped from Hell. She feeds on chaos and death, and is very good at persuading people to kill for her.The Fates want Eve to hunt her down before she does any more damage, but the Nix is a dangerous enemy - previous hunters have been driven insane in the process. As if that's not problem enough, the only way to stop her is with an angel's sword. And Eve is no angel.

Witches, Ghosts and Angels -- Oh My!

Vampires being all the rage, I like this series because it has a mixture of werewolves, ghosts, witches and other beasties -- a sprinkling of vampires. Don't be fooled by the title of the series, there are plenty of men woven into the story. This story in particular is about Eve, the mother of Savannah from a previous novel. In this novel, she is sent out after a Nix as a sort of supernatural bounty hunter and you follow her jaunts as she tracks this nasty creature down. Eve is a mixture of good and evil herself and so the theme is" if you want to catch a criminal, send a criminal" -- but can Eve be reformed from bad witch to -- what?

In order to appreciate this novel, you really should read at least book 2 and book 4; you could skip book 1 and 3 as they are other storylines. I do think reading the whole series is very worthwhile. Also, don't expect sex to be the focal point of these works, they are slight romance and mostly fantasy. If you enjoy the fantasy genre, you'll like this series.

Laural Merlington does a great job in narration. Overall, I continue to find these works light and engaging without be macabre. I recommend you give it a read -- great airplane trip time killer.

Blah...couldn't get through it

I was so disappointed in this installment of the series. I am totally in love with "the pack" and liked the witches...but I just couldn't get through this book. A lot of blah, blah, blah....after a while I shut it down and went on to book 6. I really don't think I missed much by skipping it.
