Glass' latest seizes the reader's attention and holds it captive. The author cunningly and masterfully injects details about gods who supervise and/or orchestrate what happens in the lives of humans, immortals and beings in between. The suspense is almost overwhelming, the intense action palpable. Glass creates a story you'll want to keep reading, even when there are no more pages.
Kira Solomon is a trained killer; her targets are enemies of the Light. Her existence is governed by Gilead, a paranormal commission. When she inherits a mystical dagger, she and those she cherishes become targets of a demonic who lusts for it. Kira must summon all the power she has, trust a god-man thousands of years old and rely on her friends to keep the dagger at bay. (POCKET/JUNO, Feb., 352 pp., $7.99)
