Release Date: October 5, 2010

ISBN: 0451463803

As a private investigator and consultant for the police, Alex Craft has seen a lot of dark magic. But even though she’s on good terms with Death himself—who happens to look fantastic in a pair of jeans—nothing has prepared her for her latest case. Alex is investigating a high profile murder when she’s attacked by the ‘shade’ she’s raising, which should be impossible. To top off her day, someone makes a serious attempt on her life, but Death saves her. Guess he likes having her around…

To solve this case Alex will have to team up with tough homicide detective Falin Andrews. Falin seems to be hiding something—though it’s certainly not his dislike of Alex—but Alex knows she needs his help to navigate the tangled webs of mortal and paranormal politics, and to track down a killer wielding a magic so malevolent, it may cost Alex her life…and her soul.

The first time I encountered Death, I hurled my mother’s medical chart at him.As far as impressions went, I blew it, but I was five at the time, so he eventually forgave me.

This book was seriously amazing! I am so glad that I decided to read it, I have been reading paranormal romance for the last couple of weeks and decided I needed a break and needed more of my lovely urban fantasy genre. I love Alex Craft, she definitely falls into the category of my favorite kick ass heroines. and Death, yes he is a real person. Death is so mysterious! I felt like we didnt get enought of him though, but he is just so hot and mysterious, how he pops in for coffee and then disappears out of sight.

I am in love wit Falin! You just gotta love this guy and i do! I hope Alex ends up wit Falin b/c they have so much chemistry and I think that they are so rite for each other and suit each other really well. I love Death of course but I feel like he is a fling and Alex seems just way more into Falin after chapter 22, which OMG. I LOVED CHAPTER 22!!!! I think i've over read it five times already. I want more Falin and Alex hottness!!!! This book was action, mystery, wit some romance which is a perfect fit for me. By the end of the book I have sooooo many questions i need answered! like what's is gonna happen wit the death, alex, and falin relationship.

And I want to know more about Alex's father after what we find out at the end and also if her sister stops wit the grey magic, and if her and her father's relationship will get better(it kinda seems like it might) and what about her friend rianna...okay, I'll stop there...I wish the next book was out already. If your an urban fantasy fan, you definitely need to put this on your to-be-read shelf immediately. Oh, god. I want the next book right now!
