GoodReads Summary:
Detective Paige Whiskey comes from a long line of witches. They may not all be the most powerful, but they are outspoken and supportive of their community. She alone has no gifts. She can’t summon fire, can’t read minds. She knows the arcane. She’s studied it. That, along with her connection to the Whiskey Witches, lands her some pretty strange cases.

Like the sacrificial murders of St. Francisville, Louisiana. There’s a killer on the loose, choosing people in a vain attempt to raise a demon. Not just any demon, though. A man born long ago made a demon in order to protect the Gate to Hell.

Together with demon hunter, Dexx Colt, her kitchen-witch grandmother, and her paranormal investigator brother-in-law, they unravel a conspiracy far bigger than a few simple murders and re-discover Paige’s gift.

She’s a demon summoner and she’s key to the killer’s plan.

My Review:
A blocked witch with no memory of her gift or her daughter, demons and angels on the loose, and someone killing people. Sounds like chaos to me. There were times when I wasn't sure what was what. This is a very complex and challenging book with the traditional roles tossed out the window. 

I read this straight through as a book rather than as separate episodes, and I think that helped me some. There is so much to this book, you don't need to complicate it with the choppiness of endings stuck in there. I recommend the book format.

If you are a Christian, this may not be the book for you. There is anti-God talk with the angels and demons. This is not a pretty fantasy. These angels are way outside their usual comfort zone. However, if you like a complex fantasy that will keep you thinking, this is one I would suggest. I'm looking forward to some time for reading another of this author's books.

This was a BookBub acquisition. My honest review is offered without any compensation. All opinions are fully my own.
