Holy crap! Wasn't sure where ringo was going with this one, as it turns out it goes pretty well!. A hard fighting, gun loving, combat ready, deeply religious, devout, soccer mom beauty queen? Yeah! It sounds about as believable as an un corrupt politician. But it works! And it works well.
Hope ringo comes back to this after darkling sea!, it needs at least two more books to round the series out.

This is an excellent return to form by the author. Soccer Mom, devoted-ish wife, Committed Christian and demon hunter. That is the main protagonist Barb in this series of linked works compiled into the book.
The settings range from the Louisiana swamps, a snowed in fantasy convention to suburbia - each one perhaps as deadly in its own way. The author has put a great deal of research into developing the characters and presents how a tolerable working relationship can exist with the differing faith systems with a bit of understanding on each side. That and a common foe to skewer.
A minor critic that the section at the fantasy convention could have be tidied up a bit ,especially when the author veered off into discussing politics.
Overall, very enjoyable.
