It seems like every book in this series finds a way to top the last. this book is no exception. After the inter dimensional demons kidnap his Lady love, Karra, Frank Trigg, epic badass, goes across the dimensions with his father in law, Longinus, otherwise known as the Antichrist, to go to her rescue. After they arrive, they run across Jesus, yes, that Jesus, the one who Longinus killed on the cross all those years ago. He brings them to his father and Lucifer, where they make bargains for permission to go search for her. They are then thrust into the war God is fighting with all his other dimensional creations, trying to save Karra before she is killed and the Demons plans come to fruition. Is the job to much even for Trigg and Longinus, even with their power, to be able to handle? Well, with some help from some old and new characters, they just might be able to save her and win the day.
As always with anything Tim Marquitz writes, the plot moves along at a brisk pace, never lagging or feeling tired, The characters are well drawn out, with snappy dialogue, especially from Frank, who is an unabashed smartass. The snark, even in the tensest scenes, is always there, making sure what is in some ways the darkest book in the series, still humorous enough that it doesn't distract or buzzkill the enjoyment. Any fans of Simon Greens Nightside or Secret History books or JF Lewis's Void city books should jump all over this urban fantasy masterpiece!
