Joanna Fallon returns, one year after the events in Justice. She has inherited Justin's house, butler Dobbs, and the Justice Cave, complete with Justice Computer. She may not be a super hero herself, but using the Justice Computer, she does what she does best: help the people of Galilee Falls. But this time, she has help in the form of the Royal Triumvirate; King Tempest, Lady Liberty, and Lord Nightingale. It doesn't take her long to figure out who they are. Things go from bad to worse when Emperor Cain arrives to make the Triumvirate's life, as well as Joanna's, a living Hell.
I really, really like this book. It's a great follow up to Justice. Joanna is back and is just as big a bitch as ever. I thought Ms. Harlow did a great job in writing this book, as I stayed up late three nights in a row to finish the whole thing. The characters are big, bold, and easy to like. Or hate, in Cain's case. Additionally, some of the supporting cast from Justice make their returns. Harry, Cam (in a brief appearance), and even Alkaline, in a Hannibal Lecter type role to Joanna's Clarice Starling. The pace rarely lets up in this book, which I think helped drive me to want to read more of it.
The one thing I didn't care for as much in this book is that Joanna's personal life seems to take much more of a center stage than it did in the first. It felt like that was a much bigger part of the story than it needed to be. I don't think it was *bad* necessarily, but much more up front.
Oh, and I found a typo. "gage" for "gauge." Meh.
Once again, Jennifer Harlow produces a great book. Pick up Justice, if you haven't already (come on, it's $3.99), read that, read this, love them both, and then wait for the third book. Just like me.
It's not. Along come three supes new to Galilee. And Joanna has the computer, the money, and police resources to assist them in their quest to negate criminals from Galilee Falls. They need her. And I as a reader quickly realize she needs them.
Good snappy, and at times the snarky, dialogue I have come to expect from Ms. Harlow. And a surprising inclusion of the protagonist from the last story.....ah I think there is another ending coming up for that acid man. Not a good one.
Well written. I am a huge fan of Jennifer Harlow Galilee series. I think you will be to. More than urban fantasy. Enjoyable, fast paced and absorbing. You should read!
