Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, you need a demon to fight demons.

Lincoln Marshall is a small-town deputy with a very big problem. Six members of his church have been found dead, killed by a rogue werewolf. He'll have to make a deal with the Devil to save victims that have gone missing - maybe literally. Elise Kavanagh, preternatural investigator and exorcist, is the expert when it comes to violent deaths at the jaws of evil. She's also among the most powerful demons that Hell has spawned.

Elise jumps at Lincoln's case, and it's not just because of his down-home charm. Someone's laid a trap for her in Northgate, and she wants to find out who. She'll have to team up with Rylie Gresham, Alpha of the last surviving werewolf pack, to figure out who's trying to blame the murders on werewolves. Only together can they stop the killings - and uncover the secrets buried in Northgate.

My first SM Reine, not my last!

I really enjoyed this, but I wouldn't call it a light read. It's gritty and sometimes violent. It's also sexy. I found it very well written for this genre. It held my interest to the end.

Elise is a demon, or at least she was made into a demon when she was drafted into the war between Heaven and Hell. She has a good heart, despite her powers and inclinations, and I liked her. She works as an exorcist and has been invited by law enforcement to investigate a paranormal murder. People in the town are going missing, and at least one has been found ripped apart by werewolves.

There are witches, sorcerers, werewolves, and others. Reference is made to organizations that populate other series written by Reine -- books I haven't read, but I wasn't lost. I look forward to reading the next book in this series, and in fact, I hope Audible gets the whole series, and that Kate Udall narrates them all. She brought a dark tone to the story that made it even better.

Interesting listen from a unique character'a perspective. The story is dark but attention grabbing. The narrator did a good job.
