In season one we read a short story compilation that included a story by Marjorie Liu, it was from this series and we loved the idea so much we talked about wanting to read a whole book. Why it took us 3 years to make good on our discussion is anyone’s guess. But here we are. We are happy to relate that we weren’t disappointed. This is a fantastic and interesting concept. We love the tattoos as armor that become actual demons when night falls. The mystery that Maxine has to solve is wild and requires close reading to follow. The characters are strong and interesting with their own flaws. To be fair, this is more of an urban fantasy than a romance novel. Maxine is already in a relationship with Grant when the books starts and while they have moments of tenderness and intimacy, it is not the focus of the book. We liked this book for the plot and unique story, but it doesn’t give us the dirty, sexy times we love to read.
