But fate - or more exactly, the Fates - have other plans. Eve owes them a favor, and they've just called it in. An evil spirit called the Nix has escaped from Hell. She feeds on chaos and death, and is very good at persuading people to kill for her.
The Fates want Eve to hunt her down before she does any more damage, but the Nix is a dangerous enemy - previous hunters have been driven insane in the process. As if that's not problem enough, the only way to stop her is with an angel's sword. And Eve is no angel.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
Vampires being all the rage, I like this series because it has a mixture of werewolves, ghosts, witches and other beasties -- a sprinkling of vampires. Don't be fooled by the title of the series, there are plenty of men woven into the story. This story in particular is about Eve, the mother of Savannah from a previous novel. In this novel, she is sent out after a Nix as a sort of supernatural bounty hunter and you follow her jaunts as she tracks this nasty creature down. Eve is a mixture of good and evil herself and so the theme is" if you want to catch a criminal, send a criminal" -- but can Eve be reformed from bad witch to -- what?
In order to appreciate this novel, you really should read at least book 2 and book 4; you could skip book 1 and 3 as they are other storylines. I do think reading the whole series is very worthwhile. Also, don't expect sex to be the focal point of these works, they are slight romance and mostly fantasy. If you enjoy the fantasy genre, you'll like this series.
Laural Merlington does a great job in narration. Overall, I continue to find these works light and engaging without be macabre. I recommend you give it a read -- great airplane trip time killer.
I was so disappointed in this installment of the series. I am totally in love with "the pack" and liked the witches...but I just couldn't get through this book. A lot of blah, blah, blah....after a while I shut it down and went on to book 6. I really don't think I missed much by skipping it.
The story is exciting, packed full of highs & lows. Narration good. We'll worth the credit!
Once the story got going it was don't put it down. However it took a while to get there. Loved the character of Eve. Can't await to start the new book which follows in this series of the 'Otherworld'
take out all the cussing
I only got a little bit through it before the language made me stop
I found the character???s interpretation of the afterlife interesting. I???ve been enjoying this series, but I had to learn to tolerate poor production choices like narrators that don???t match the characters and bad editing. The producers finally got their act together for this book. On the other hand, the author could have made the main character as cunning she has been lead up to be.
