Darker Angels by M.L.N. Hanover

darker-angels

Mere months have passed since the events of Unclean Spirits were front and center. Jayne and the gang have been exploring her inheritance, locating the many houses, finding various books on magic, looking for clue about the magic boost she received and trying to find out more about her Uncle Eric.

While in Greece, mysterious, brash and knowledgeable ex FBI agent, Karen Black finds Jayne when she calls Eric to help her destroy a loa rider (possessing demon) set to claim NOLA for their own territory after she gets a lead from a nascent precog. Concerned about her future with Aubrey, Jayne’s grateful for Karen’s knowledge and help but not always happy about the affect she has on the team.

When they all meet, Aubrey and Ex step up and become more assertive around Karen who has her own set of skills and Chogyi Jake and Aubrey are more protective. Working together but getting too close to the loa brings tragedy to the team and they struggle to readjust and settle into their strengths and use the knowledge to give as good as they get.

Although this read was a self contained adventure, it felt middle bookish… which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, some threads were cleaned up or wrapped, others were begun and overall the story moved. Being herself, Karen brought out hidden skills and depths in the team and her ambiguous character worked for the series at this point. She kept this reader guessing about her loyalties for quite a while.
