Publisher's Summary

Karma,. It's what they call me and the very essence of who I am. When I died young, I was recruited by the agency that keeps the universe running smoothly. As someone with a human past, most of my coworkers consider me inferior.
But not everyone. Something evil has been stalking me for centuries. It's been biding its time, waiting for the moment when it will strike, and it needs me to do it.
Its methods of recruitment are tearing apart every aspect of my life. I'm slowly losing myself, both mentally and physically. I don't know who I can count on, but I'm finding out how much I'm willing to sacrifice to save the ones I care about.

The first book had enough of a unique plot and love hate relationship with the male and female characters that it was entertaining. Just be happy with the first book. Karma whinnied through out this book. To have been such a great attorney and take no shit kinda of girl she let herself get twisted in an infinite loop in this book. Metaphorically she kept hitting her head on the wall and watch that nothing changed. Her justification was she was saving /protecting the life of a friend.

Yet, each circumstance in, which she was faced with a dilemma to save her friend placed her with a similar dilemma moral decision about someone else. So through the book she is saving people, getting her butt whipped, still endangering the life of her friend and whining because for a smart woman she can not get out of that situation.

Why can't an author set up a unique scenario with cross lovers? We have the Fate, "I have to save yourself from you." Karma, who is so battered and busied that her life is in danger arguers "No you cannot help me. Let me go out and continue being stupid. I am killing myself to save my friend but I cannot tell you" So you then have a few hours of her being detained by him and then trying to lose him. Oh yea, because he is trying to save her life, and does not know her reasoning, she feels his actions (to save her)demonstrate that he does not love her. Hey he won't let he kill herself so he is a cad.

And to her mortification, her friend was tortured while she was trying to not kill someone as her nemesis wanted her to do. Other characters get play time but not enough. I love the triplets, jinks. At one point they tell Karma her antics were consumed with such bad luck that they could not have done any better. Fate's crew is funny. Now Fate has unfortunately been depicted and a brooding man with very little personality. I was screaming, "for Christ's sake tell her you love her already!" So between Faith and Karma this second book fell way short.

The series has such potential with all the interesting characters. It is unfortunate that we are stuck dealing with Karma and her twisted romance and misplaced morality within her current position.

Pass this one.I am returning it for my credit to try Donna Augustine's Alchemy series.

Oh the narrator, Angle Clark was bad. I know she did the last book. I had a tendency to tune out Karma whining. Clark's Karma and Fate voices were so alike I could not tell when the character changed.

Karma has a good kick

Overall kept my attention , I wanted to find out how she was going to get out of this. Narrator is OK, but voice wanted to put me to sleep.

- Farrell "Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special."
