She has been dealing with the demonic all her life, so when her brother gets tangled up with a demon named Sparkles, "Luna the Lunatic" rolls in on her motorcycle to save the day. Armed with the ability to harm demons, her scathing sarcasm, and a hefty chip on her shoulder, Luna gathers the most unusual of allies, teaming up with a green-eyed heroin addict and a snarky demon of "some import". After all, outcasts of a feather should stick together...even until the end.

all books horror. especially zombie
I was pleasantly surprised by a whole bunch of original aspects of this story. First and foremost the main character Luna is approx 35 years old, a little chubby and far from perfect. She has no idea what she is getting into but she bumbles her way through to save her brothers baby. I loved it. It is a bit girly while still being gritty and full of guts.Mercedes Yardley is witty and at times downright funny. Can't wait for the next book. Well worth your money and time. Well done!!
I thought it was an original plot and I enjoyed the realism and who does not love a sarcastic heroine
Luna, didn't give a crap about anybody view of her. To get her work done she went around and through people and Demon alike.
There was a few times when the reader stumbled over or got confused about which characters she was reading about.
just can't wait n the next installment.
what I liked;
Mercedes Yardley renders to us a delightful easy read, mainly about a beautiful girl, the two men in her life (three, if you count the brother),a little girl, demons and an angel. Yardley is an excellent wordsmith and her use of the English language is far better than many of the authors whose books I have read this year. Luna Masterston, the heroine, is cheeky, witty, confident, energetic, sarcastic but also deeply vulnerable.
who would I recommend this book to;
All readers who enjoy skilfull, well-written, fast- paced, clean, dark
urban fantasy will enjoy this gift by Me Yardley.
why the rating;
Although this book is much better than most I have read in this genre there is room for more gut- wrenching, and versatility
Main character is most hateful person you ever want to meet. I've never read a book for enjoyment where I kept checking to see How much longer before it was over so I could stop listening.
I had the book as a recommendation in my library for several weeks because of other books I had apparently bought. As the recommendation was quite persistent, I thought it must be really good. Unfortunately, it is a really childish and immature book. Even scenes that were supposed to be funny just came across as silly.The whole storyline was just a massive disappointment. I made it as far as chapter 21 before I finally gave up.
Very good narrator....not her fault the story was just awful.
I hope not!
It isn't the worst book I've read, but it definitely ranks in the top 10% worst books.
