John Charming isn't your average prince... He comes from a line of Charmings - an illustrious family of dragon slayers, witch-finders and killers dating back to before the fall of Rome. Trained by a modern day version of the Knights Templar, monster hunters who have updated their methods from chain mail and crossbows to Kevlar and shotguns, John Charming was one of the best-until a curse made him one of the abominations the Knights were sworn to hunt.

I try not to be a "negative Nancy" but this book was a struggle to stay awake. Not what I expected. Even when there was action he spoken in the same reflection. So much went wrong with this book I cannot tell it all...... waste of a credit.

When it started you thought it would be a typical storyline but then slowly it pulls you in to each person telling it from their side and nothing is as it seems. Excellent..... Too many cliff hangers though.

Nikolai: I have been a contract killer since I was a boy. For years I savored the fear caused by my name, the trembling at the sight of my tattoos. If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you'd have. With her I am the mark, and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me. Opening my small, scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit, but if they hurt her I will bring the world down around their ears.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The love scenes was longer than the kill scenes! Not only did I have to listen to it once then it would switch over to tell it from the other characters point of view. This is not what I expected or wanted to listen to. If you like sappy love stories this is for you. If you want an action Hit man series this is not what you want to purchase.

What could Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

More action less sex scenes

What three words best describe Iggy Toma and Kasha Kensington ’s voice?

Tolerable, Believable

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.
