Publisher's Summary

In a world where magic walks and demons ride, you can't always play by the rules. Jayné Heller thinks of herself as a realist, until she discovers reality isn't quite what she thought it was.
When her uncle Eric is murdered, Jayné travels to Denver to settle his estate, only to learn that it's all hers - and more vast than she ever imagined. And along with properties across the world and an inexhaustible fortune, Eric left her a legacy of a different kind: his unfinished business with a cabal of wizards known as the Invisible College.
Led by the ruthless Randolph Coin, the Invisible College harnesses demon spirits for their own ends of power and domination. Jayné finds it difficult to believe magic and demons can even exist, let alone be responsible for the death of her uncle. But Coin sees Eric's heir as a threat to be eliminated by any means - magical or mundane.
Aided in her mission by a group of unlikely companions - Aubrey, Eric's devastatingly attractive assistant; Ex, a former Jesuit with a lethal agenda; Midian, a two-hundred-year-old man who claims to be under a curse from Randolph Coin himself; and Chogyi Jake, a self-styled Buddhist with mystical abilities - Jayné finds that her new reality is not only unexpected, but often unexplainable. And if she hopes to survive, she'll have to learn the new rules fast - or break them completely.

Couldn't Get Into It

I don't know if it was the breathless co-ed style narration, or the pedantic prose but I really had a hard time getting into this book. I wanted to enjoy it but there was just something that kept me from caring, either about the main character or the plot. There is no humor in this book, everything is treated with a level of earnestness that I found draining. And then the writer took several sentences to describe a jelly donut, not even a particularly unique jelly donut. I stopped listening not long after that.

Poorly Written and extremely unbelievable

What disappointed you about Unclean Spirits?

I love science fiction books. A good author is able to pull you and make you believe in the story and feel for the characters. The main character in this book is extremely unrealistic it seems that she just happens to be able to do all these amazing and impossible things with no training, no experience, it just feels like there is no reason that she shouldn't have gotten killed which is extremely more likely. Completely turned me off the whole series.

Has Unclean Spirits turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not turned off from other books in the genre but from this author in particular

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was fine seemed to capture the lack of character of the main character rather well.
