5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on April 24, 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Recently some of the Magicus Mundi otherworldly creatures have assaulted offices of the Internal Surveillance and Investigation government agency. The stunner is that the attacks have been coordinated in group waves as these monsters are notorious loners. The ISI agents and the Magnus Mundi are in mortal and immortal combat.

Though Miami based private investigator Sylvie Lightner is the first choice of those needing sleuthing amidst the Magicus Mundi in crowd, this is not her fight especially after what she recently caused in her city. Sylvie's neutrality in the ISI Magicus Mundi war changes when the latter threatens people she cherishes. With close allies, Sylvie, using her sorceress powers, searches for the diabolical genius who has consolidated the Magicus Mundi monsters into a cohesive fighting machine.

The latest Shadows Inquiries urban fantasy is an exciting action-packed thriller. Fast-paced, the protagonist remains an interesting lead character although her powers have grown immensely. Less detecting and more superhero than the previous entries (See Gods and Monsters, and Ghosts & Echoes), fans will enjoy Sylvie Lightner investigator of the paranormal.

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

It was such a treat to be back in the Shadows Inquiries world, and LIES AND OMENS doesn't waste a single page before ramping up the action. Almost invisibly, Benedict intertwined gentle reminders about Sylvie's past without slowing down the current events one bit (though new readers should definitely put in the time to read prior books). By the time Sylvie was clinched in what is the absolute best shower scene I've ever read, I knew I was going to gulp this book down in one sitting (and I was right).

Above and beyond a killer first act, the entire book is infused with Benedict's knack for appealing darkness. None of the loose ends from prior books are swept under the rug, but these difficult, heart-wrenching relationships are saved from any hint of drama by Sylvie's clear-eyed emotional bravery. In general, I do not like angry characters, yet Sylvie's brand of rage is transmuted into something gorgeous. Her intransigence becomes more and more important as the line between "friend" and "monster" blurs. Whether it's something as small as mentioning the bitter taste of soap in a sex scene or acknowledging the devastating consequences of past victories, Benedict brings a gritty reality to her urban fantasy that I find absolutely irresistible.

Despite the shotgun start, LIES AND OMENS did have a lull in the action two thirds of the way through. However, that slight pause soon swept away to a climactic finish. Benedict managed a difficult feat for a mid-series ending, offering a resolution that was satisfying for her characters while still lighting the fuse on fantastic possibilities for future books. LIES AND OMENS was #10 on my Top 12 for 2012 list, and as quickly as I've finished it, I'm already penciling in a spot for Shadows Inquiries #5 on this year's new list.

Sexual Content: A sex scene.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Shadow Inquiries series continued with plenty of action, frustrating romance and otherworldly type creatures aplenty. Sylvie once again has to save humanity from the magical world and those hell bent on destroying the ISI with no care who falls into their path.

Sylvie is kick ass, loyal and full of surprises. We continue to get a peek into what being the New Lilith entails for Sylvie while continuing to keep us (and her for that matter) in the dark. We get a hot and sexy shower reunion scene between Sylvie and Demalion. I'm really not sure what my feelings are towards Marah, I honestly can not tell what her motives are and who's side she is on. Erinya brings lots of excitement to the series but she is a bit out of control now that she is a god and I cant imagine what she will do next or how Sylvie will deal with it.

I really liked how LIES & OMENS ended. It felt like all the key players are finally on the same side in the same fight. There is a great lead up to book 5 worked in. I wont be missing a release in this series anytime soon.

I liked the first in this series and was hooked by the end of book 2. Book 4 does not dissappoint. I don't like spoilers so won't be detailed as to plot but the story is tightly written and for a series it has a definitive and satisfying end but with a lure and anticipation for book 5. Lyn Benedict has become one of my absolute favorites in this genre. Sylvie is a continually growing and changing character written in tones of gray.

Overall I just really love this series and cannot wait for the next book.
