This book was entertaining, but I did not get that, I must finish it tonight experience. Therefore, I got side track and finished a few books in between. So understand that I finished the book because I am anal about leaving this incomplete and wasting money.
This is a post-apocalyptic world where demons invade the world. There are vampires, witches, werewolves, zombies, necromancy and gargoyles. Weather the impetus, which changed the world was a natural product or the results of research by a conglomerate.
Story in a nutshell, female protagonist, Ella Grey has a strong need to help the helpless. Mom, dad, and grandmother are dead. She was left to raise her brother but he ran away. So you know what that means, she blames herself for his missing. She magical police officer, and is on the same level as a beat cop. She was dead for 18 minutes and is low on the magic wielder scale.
Her posse is formed as the story progress. She has a new partner, who can handle a lot of magic. Her previous one was killed on her last mission. She is experiencing side effects from her awaking, but is not really motivated to find the cause, she just wants to get sleep. She does not know what is riding on her coat tails; later she finds out it is the reaper. It gave her a vision of her brother so she is ready to make a bargain to find him. Ignorance can kill you, or in this case bore you.
Considering Ella is not the kick ass female protagonist that I like, the length of the story was fine. The author got right into the action and there is action. There is no indication in in book one or the summary of book two that Ella would come into some great magic.
So your brother has been missing for 5 years. Now a reaper, which is eating your soul, could POSSIBLY lead you to him. Problem, you don’t know how quickly the reaper will eliminate you. Ella is not only a bleeding heart, but stupid too. There are other options.
I would consider buying book two, if it was on sale, otherwise I am finish with this series.

From the start, I wasn't into it, but I wanted to give it a fair chance. I've gotten to Chapter 8, and I still don't feel invested. I think the plot might have some merit (albeit minimal), but it's really the poor character development that ruins this one. I don't feel any connection to the protagonist, and none of the side characters are any more endearing. The best thing about this audiobook is that it's narrated by Amy Landon, but not even Amy Landon can make me continue this futile endeavor. My overall impression is that it's flat and boring, and, ultimately, a complete waste of time.
