Unclean Spirits The Black Sun's Daughter 1 Denver is lousy with monsters and mayhem in this urban fantasy series launch by epic fantasist Daniel Abraham The Long Price Quartet series , his first venture under the Hanover pen name.
Bad narrator and writing I am very disapointed in the narrator's inability to seperate characters. A lot of women's urban fantasy is pretty crappy, but it's hugely popular, and in the same way I try not to judge the romance field, I don't want to judge urban fantasy as inferior just because it's a women's literature. This was my first M. I help people with ghost problems, or ghosts with people problems. It was annoying to constantly, repeatedly read about who said it right and who said it wrong, and the book was too long as it was. Aided in her mission by a group of unlikely companions — Aubrey, Eric's devastatingly attractive assistant; Ex, a former Jesuit with a lethal agenda; Midian, a two-hundred-year-old man who claims to be under a curse from Randolph Coin himself; and Chogyi Jake, a self-styled Buddhist with mystical abilities — Jayné finds that her new reality is not only unexpected, but often unexplainable. Jayné's normalcy is contrasted nicely by the people she soon finds herself surrounded by.
When I finished reading Unclean Spirits, I found myself staring at the cursor on my computer screen, not sure about what to say about this series. Jayne arrives in Denver as heir to her Uncle Eric's estate, the only family member who never disowned him. I'm looking for someone to do a job for me. Recommendations: This would be a difficult one for me to recommend. Hanover is the pseudonym of the author Daniel Abraham.
Edit: Having read the next one and a half books in the series I changed my mind about this one. The immaturity she showed with the insta-love stupidity in this book was incredibly irritating. Aided in her mission by a group of unlikely companions — Aubrey, Eric's devastatingly attractive assistant; Ex, a former Jesuit with a lethal agenda; Midian, a two-hundred-year-old man who claims to be under a curse from Randolph Coin himself; and Chogyi Jake, a self-styled Buddhist with mystical abilities — Jayné finds that her new reality is not only unexpected, but often unexplainable. Daniel Abraham doing urban fantasy - very interesting. And the glamour fell away from the others. I had seen a lot of mixed reviews of this book which I had already bought so I wasn't sure what to expect.
Eric tapped his glass, the tick-tick-tick of his fingernails sounding like the rain against the window. The strength of the book is very much an honor to them. The clouds had rolled in late in the afternoon, white pillars ascending toward the sun with a darkness at the base that was pure threat. She finds out that he's married. I did have the niggling thought that, what with Aubrey, Ex, Chogyi Jake and a hefty dose of sexual tension, if this were an erotic kind of book it'd be quite the party. Jayne is battling her own morals over her relationship with Aubrey. The ink of their markings seemed to well up from inside them like blood from a cut.
His breath smelled like creosote. The curl of rain-chilled air moved through the bar like a breath. Some would call her a loser. I didn't believe it could be as bad as that, and I'm glad to say I was correct. When her uncle Eric is murdered, Jayné travels to Denver to settle his estate, only to learn that it's all hers — and vaster than she ever imagined.
Of course if you're a Coben fan you don't even need a description - you know this book is going to be good. I certainly am not overwhelmed by the story, but the book sorts of leaves you with a blank feeling. The man of a thousand twists is back with his latest edge of the seat thriller. I purchased the second book before I finished the first one, because I found the characters engaging, the performance great, and the premise of the story very interesting - and I've done the same thing with the third book, which is entertaining me at the moment. There are more books in this series and I might read the second book at some point to see if things pick up plot-wise and action-wise since the romance angle is doing anything for me but it won't be priority reading for me.
I have read the whole series, and I love that it is so unpredictable. Jayne is, basically, a directionless and vulnerable drop-out. I felt like the narrator was a 4 year old that needed to be put in a timeout for trying to talk like the cool kids. Jayné Heller thinks of herself as a realist, until she discovers reality isn't quite what she thought it was. His mind clicked into trance, the aroma acting as trigger.
It always paid to be kind to the help. Or should we go someplace private? I was about half way through it when I put it down in favor of a new release that I had been dying to read.

N Hanover book and I really enjoyed it! Like Alice in those old books. It strikes me as just another attempt at the antihero, ain't I tough and nonconformist urban fantasy niche that is showing up now. As for the romance aspect, I have to confess that I really enjoy the slow burn.

When her uncle Eric is murdered, Jayné travels to Denver to settle his estate, only to learn that it's all hers — and vaster than she ever imagined. Jayné finds it difficult to believe magic and demons can even exist, let alone be responsible for the death of her uncle. Hanover pulls a nice twist with regards to this and really changes how view the information Midian was doling out earlier in the novel. He could hear the individual raindrops striking the car.
