I love that Hearne kept the series based in the desert Southwest. If you think Hammered took on some heavy hitters in the world of the supernatural, wait til you read this addition to the series. Nasty, near-indestructible, pure evil, coming right at you.
My advice to our main characters was to flea. But did they listen? No! Not the smartest decision, but it made for a highly entertaining story. On top of these evil entities, Atticus owes Coyote a big favor and pat of that favor is sabotaging a local coal mine. Yet more bare-ass antics ensue. Then there is still tension with the lawyer werewolves and of course the whole void in vampire power for the region is making everyone who knows about it antsy. Atticus has to spread his trust around in this book: his apprentice, Oberon, Coyote, the local Elemental Colorado, his werewolf buddies, the coven, local Medicine Man, etc. But he puts his trust in one wrong person and takes a beating. Ouch. Just thinking about it, even though I read it days ago, still makes me cringe.
While I wouldn’t say this is my favorite in the series, I still enjoyed it from beginning to end and look forward to the next in the series.
