From the Author
It made me think about what else could have survived from Sumeria, something more malevolent than a dusty vase, that wasn't going to be easy to crush out of existence. I turned to Sumerian mythology, a fascinating set of stories with intrinsic interest for readers. To mention just one example, consider that the Sumerians believed their gods were extraterrestrials who came to Earth to mine for gold, among other reasons. The mythology was so wonderful on its own that all I needed was a jumping-off point for the series. In the mythology, all of the gods left Earth to return to their home planet, so I just had to make sure a few demons were left behind on Earth and survived into the present. I love the characters, the world, and the moral dilemmas that resulted, and writing the Mortal Path series has been intensely satisfying. - DB

In this third outing, one of her entourage, Yanmeng, a venerable Chinese man well along the path to total enlightenment (he can astral travel and communicate with Maliha no matter where she is) is kidnapped and the kidnapper holds him for ransom in return for Maliha's performing assassinations on demand. The kidnapper turns out to be another one of the ageless immortals beholden to a different Sumerian demon, who also happens to be an historical figure well known to fans of sanguinary history, and the main plot revolves around figuring out how to save Yanmeng and destroy the kidnapper.Read more ›
Aside from the new villain, I felt that the supernatural elements of the story were largely pushed to the background while the characters dealt with the immediate problems facing them in this installment. There is a lot of action, and the story is interesting in a mystery-novel sort of way. I look forward to the next installment and hope Maliha makes more progress recovering shards and understanding more about what is going on in the grand scheme of things.

Maliha Crayne is been on The Mortal Path, seeking redemption for centuries of slavery to the Sumerian demon Rabishu as his personal assassin. If she can save as many lives as she has taken before she dies, she is free. If not... she will be brutally tortured for eternity. She has gathered a small group of trusted individuals she has saved, who have dedicated their lives to helping her find a way to defeat the demons forever. However, one person she's not entirely sure about is her lover, the Immortal Jake, who is still slave to his demon.
Now Maliha has a new problem. Her friends are vanishing without a trace. She doesn't even know where to start to find them, until someone, another Immortal, starts leaving her little surprises to find. This mystery person has a plan, bring Maliha under her thumb to use Maliha and her remaining supernatural abilities for her skill as an assassin. If this woman gets her way, the Immortals will be in a position to rule the country, and maybe the world, to create their own hell on earth. Maliha must make a choice, cave in to the demands of the Immortal and save her friends, while risking her own soul to forever torment, or refuse and watch her friends die. In Maliha's life, there is no black or white, good or evil, only the gray line in between, if she ever hopes to find Deliverance for her friends... and herself.
I just have to say I love love LOVE The Mortal Path series! Each successive book gets better and better. Be forewarned, Deliverance is probably the darkest book yet in the series. Maliha has her own strict moral code, however shady it may be, that wavers from time to time, but never falls.Read more ›
In return for revenge on those who caused her death, Maliha Crayne indentured herself to a demon. She was the demon's stone-cold assassin for over 300 years... Then she decided that she wanted something better from her life. She wanted a chance to make up for all of the needless and senseless deaths she had caused over the centuries, so she went Rogue. Yes, Rogue!!!!! (sounds all kinds of bad and shady, huh?)
By going Rogue, Maliha has the chance to redeem her soul. Every life she saves, tips the scale in her favor.
In this installment of the series. Maliha's friends are being harmed. One of her closest friends is kidnapped. In return for his release, the kidnapper wants Maliha to go back to being an assassin. This is tough for Maliha. If she does this, it will make redeeming her soul that much harder. She reluctantly does as the kidnapper asks, but goes about it in her own way. Hoping to cause the least amount of harm.
The kidnapper is good and crazy. The type of crazy that makes Hannibal Lecter say: "Damn! What is wrong with you! You are insane!" Seriously, this is one bad chick with no redeeming qualities. The reader can get a good hate on and really root for her comeuppance.
We find out some interesting things about Maliha's man, Jake (he's a slick one). I can't go into too much detail without giving away major portions of the plot.
This story has lots of action and moves at a fast pace. The author did an excellent job on this novel.
I highly recommend the other novels in this series. All of them are examples of solid storytelling and unique characters.
