Hell's Gates by Lauren Creed
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book had a nice mix of action, adventure, paranormal, and romance to keep just about any one of those types of readers quickly turning the pages. I'd recommend starting with book one so you get the full impact that is Caith Morningstar.
We join Caith almost a year after the first book. She's now an adoptive mother, still "single" (or whatever it is you would call someone whose mate is learning how to be fallen), and now a little bored because the demon ban has caused a downswing in people she needs to beat up. It seems like this might be her new everyday life until her son turns up sick. Ordinarily, this would be nothing new - a kid getting sick - but there is definitely something foul afoot when the most powerful witches and healers can't fix him. With her uncle MIA and oodles of others turning up with the same illness, she's forced to face facts - maybe her demon ban might not have been the wisest things. But, hey, she was pissed and had the power to do something drastic.
Aside from trying to find the source of the evil illness, Caith also has to tread carefully as she and Sam try to find their new normal. There is a lot of tough chick goodness, yummy smuttiness, and some good detective work along the way. All in all, I'm hooked on this new series and can't wait to see where it goes next!
