Publisher's Summary

When a supernatural killer is implicated in a string of cannibalistic murders, federal exorcist John Starkweather must track the demon down with the help of his live-in lover, Caleb Jansen. Caleb is possessed by Gray, a vampire spirit who is a natural demon hunter.

Caleb's desire to find the killer is tempered by the knowledge his own time is running out. If John can't successfully figure out how to exorcise Gray before forty days are up, the possession becomes permanent.

When John's ex shows up, looking for a place to stay while visiting the city on business, tensions mount even higher. Lines are drawn and Caleb learns some decisions, once made, can never be changed.

This is soo good!

You know what they say about the best laid plans….

I wasn’t planning on listening to this book today, well a few minutes before I went to sleep, sure. Lo and behold, I’m still wide awake a couple of hours later and am another book down in this series… and one that ended like that! I really wish I didn’t have to go to sleep, that I didn’t have work in the morning. At times like this I hate being a responsible adult and I wish could stay up all night listening to the next book instead…

We’ve come to the middle of this story and have an uneasy status quo between Caleb/Gray and SPECTR. Time is running out to perform the exorcism and keep the possession from becoming permanent. But, like it has before, it takes the backseat when a new demon is rampaging through the city and John is tasked to stop it – with the help of his new reluctant partner/s. Well Caleb is reluctant, Gray wants nothing else but to hunt and eat the demon running around.

For the most part the relationship between John and Caleb is at a standstill. Well, John’s ex did cause a stir when he turned up on the doorstep – expecting John to take him back. So things are more than a little tense around the house. I liked to see how Caleb and Gray grew closer and bonded to each other, understood each other and worked together. They fit and complete each other.

All throughout the book you could feel the pressure, the tension of time running out. But also of the words that weren’t said. About Gray. What would become of him if and when they succeeded in exorcizing him? Did they even want him to leave? Would SPECTR let Caleb go once Gray was gone? Many questions unanswered…

Brad Langer narrated the heck out of this book. Gray’s jealousy of John’s ex was hilarious. He also really captured John’s longing to keep Gray in any way possible, and the uncertainty of how to manage it. The fear of the unknown for Gray and Caleb. I loved his intensity during the showdown. How he made it all feel creepy, he really made the listener feel that unease. So sensitive listeners might get a few nightmares – free of charge ;) I loved it.

If the last few books ended abruptly and with a feeling that the story wasn’t finished yet, they have nothing on this one. Because that was one heck of a cliffhanger – so make sure you have the next book ready because you’ll need it.

It is getting more intense!

Water of Lives by Jordan L Hawk and narrated by Brad Langer is book four of the series. This book is getting more intense with the possession, boyfriend, and possible lock up. Good action and emotional roller coaster.
Good narration!

It's getting better...

This is a good story. I still wish that Gray played a more prominent role. It doesn't make sense to me that Gray would have allowed them to be captured. Caleb was so paranoid about SPECTR, he never wouldn't trusted the new guy.
Also, why would Caleb keep it from John that Gray liked him? He didn't want Gray destroyed, maybe John knowing that would help.
