Halfway To The Grave was one of my favourites from among the big pile of urban fantasies I read over last midwinter, and I like this sequel even more.

I read this delightful book in one eight-hour sitting, torn between taking it slowly to savour every emotion and gobbling it up quickly to discover how all these wonderful characters fare in the end. It's totally unputdownable!
Melissa Marr's worldbuilding skill is superb. I found myself immersed very quickly. She gives us characters we can love, plunges them into difficult situations, then drives them rapidly and inevitably towards danger. I particularly like the way her main players have to juggle with moral pros & cons, in a world where taking one of the "right" options might harm as many innocent people as doing a "wrong" thing.
A wonderful read! Enjoy!
