Lily Carlyle Demon Assassin for the side of good or is she???,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tainted (Blood Lily Chronicles) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is well worth the read, it puts me in mind of Stacia Kane the 'Unholy series', Lilith Saintcrow,Faith Hunter, Natasha Rhodes & Jennifer Armintrout, who turn out gritty, exciting urban fantasies.
Alice or should I say Lily is training to close the ninth gate of hell, she failed to protect her sister, so she is determined to succeed at this. She has a scaley mentor & succumbus trainer, a demon stalking her to reveal what she knows & no-one to talk to, because even though she just has to do one thing to succour her redemption, someone is lying to her.
Lily is an incredibly resilient & unapologetic character, I like that, the story is fast paced & does not let up until the end & is left on a cliffhanger.
This is the first time I have read Julie Kenner & I am now going to go straight on to the next book, as I cannot wait to see where this superb Urban fantasy will end.
If you like gritty urban fantasies with a sassie heroine with flaws, strong supporting characters, none stop action than this is for you. No sappy romantic cheese here thank goodness.
The next book in the series is Torn (Blood Lily Chronicles) Enjoy....
