Publisher's Summary

With the pressure on after his success in Gaol, Eli Monpress, professional thief and degenerate, decides it’s time to lie low for a bit. Taking up residence in a tiny seaside village, Eli and his companions seize the chance for some fun and relaxation.
Nico, however, is finding it a bit hard. Plagued by a demon’s voice in her head and feeling powerless, she only sees herself as a burden. Everyone’s holiday comes to an untimely close, though, when Pele arrives to beg Eli’s help for finding her missing father.
But there are larger plans afoot than even Eli can see, and the real danger, and the solution, may lie with one of his own and her forgotten past.
If only Nico could remember whose side she’s on.

“A delightfully giddy romp of a novel.” (Karen Miller, author of The Innocent Mage)
“Witty, smart, snappy, sassy, fast, furious and let’s not forget fun...Rachel Aaron isn’t so much knocking at the door as kicking it down.” (Tom Holt, author of Blonde Bombshell)

I wish the next one was offered as an audiobook

The fourth in the series is out but not being offered in audiobook form. I love the characters in this series. Eli sort of takes a backseat in this installment. This book is primarily about Nico and her struggle with the demon seed and herself. You do learn a bit more about Eli's past. This is a great series and I hope that Audible will soon have the 4th and the upcoming 5th book to offer members in the near future.

Highly Entertaining!


Wow, what an amazingly entertaining book...and series. I can't believe more people haven't read this yet or commented on it. Wonderful set up of witty characters with obvious hints about a much bigger plot and family "connections" in the future. Fantastic banter between characters, nice depth to the world she has created. What's really interesting is that, because all objects (people, trees, rocks, etc) have "spirits" in her universe, they all have the potential to contibute dialogue. All in all just a great fun read on top of solid characters, engrossing plot, and a well thought out magic system. Can't wait for the next book!
