Book Description

The bestselling Niki Slobodian series is now available in one action-packed collection.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Niki Slobodian sees things - things that aren't supposed to be there. 

Labeled an Abnormal by New Government, Niki's name is tacked onto the Registry, which seems to be getting longer these days. Now she can't work or she'll end up the same place as her father: in prison. But with no money coming in, Niki's getting desperate. 

So when a mysterious client offers to get her off the Registry in exchange for taking his case, Niki jumps at the chance. All she has to do is round up a homicidal Dark that's escaped from Hell and is cruising around the city in borrowed bodies. The murders are piling up, with Niki's notorious father somehow involved, and Niki's running out of time. And it seems the Dark isn't the only thing that escaped...

The Devil Is a Gentleman

Where Niki goes, death is never far behind.

Everyone Niki Slobodian knows hates Congressman Frank Bradley. He is the father of New Government, after all. He started the Registry, and the world adopted it. Bradley is the man who separated Abnormals and Normals, and made it a crime for Abbies to exist.

So when Bradley shows up at Niki's door bearing a terrible secret, then promptly disappears, she feels compelled to dig deeper. But the more Niki uncovers, the more danger she is in. A mysterious organization is out for her blood - literally - and her father's criminal past may not be as self-serving as she thought. There is also the matter of Niki's inscrutable employer Sam and the secret of his identity. With help from her partner Bobby Gage, Niki finds out just how little she knew about her family, and the truth of who she really is.

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

The worlds are out of balance. The Creator is missing. And the war between Heaven and Hell has begun.

Niki Slobodian came back, but there were side effects. She is filled with a strange power no one seems to be able to explain. Not even Sam. She is also plagued with strange visions whenever she touches anyone. This does nothing but complicate the fact that she may be the reason for the war raging in the streets of her own city. A war that could mean the end of humanity.

Niki has always done whatever she had to for the people she loves, but this time is different. With carnage escalating and the people she cares for in danger, Niki and Sam must work together to save what is left of the world they both love. And with a psychotic archangel trying to assume the post of the Creator, with one slim chance to right the balance, the odds are against them.

Nothing is ever easy for a Slobodian. Not even stopping a war that could unmake the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dark and beautiful world of Niki December 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Book one was recommended on my Kindle's recommended reads. I had never heard of JL Murray before and tried a sample of the first chapter. And....I bought it half way through the first chapter. I fell into the dark and complex world of Niki Slobodian and found myself taking " bathroom" breaks from work just so I could finish the books. The characters are real and well written which add up to some great character interaction and witty moments. I am a firm believe in not giving away spoilers, but know that the world could end and some character's sacrifices break your proverbial heart into a million pieces. At the end, you have a smile, a band aid on your heart, and a wonderful escape from your life. Thank you JL for giving me something to look forward to, her fourth book is on it's way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Save them all! December 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I can guarantee you that if you read the first one, you'll want to read the next two. So save yourself some time and money, and just dive right in already! I loved all three of these books, and am, so far, a fan of everything Niki Slobodian. She's a tough, smart protagonist, which is great to see in a female character. These books are keepers, and you might even find yourself re-reading the first book after you've finished the third book. Two solid thumbs up. So why are you wasting any more time reading this review? You've got an omnibus to purchase!

4.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal trilogy April 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Glad I got the omnibus as once I started reading the first book and got engrossed in Niki's story, I just had to keep going through all 3 books. Niki is an Abnormal who can see and speak to ghosts. She running out of money since she was put on trial by the New Government and put on the Registry and can no longer work as a PI. She meets the mysterious Sam in the Deep Blue Sea bar. He offers her a job and also tells her he will remove her name from the Registry which is meant to be impossible. Niki is teamed with Bobby Gage, a powerful caster, to track down an escaped demon from Hell. There's angels, demons, gangsters and who are the good guys and whose the bad is debateable. If you love strong, dark and complicated characters like Elise Kavanaugh in S M Reine's Descent series, you will love Niki Slobodian.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another kick butt heroine for my library! June 25, 2014
By RDee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love this series! I borrowed all of them using my prime membership and when I saw the set I bought it. I am currently reading the 4th book. This author is now on my list of authors to check back on since her books doesn't diappoint. I just finished reading her other book Jenny Undead and that is a pretty awesome book as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money March 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Totally loved these books! Niki had just the right amount of attitude, vulnerability, and skills to make herself an amazing character. Her powers are totally badass. She loves her few family members, and friends that she has in her circle. She can also admit when she may be wrong about someone. Case in point her dad. Each book seamlessly flows into the next. Not too many characters sacrifice themselves for someone else, and become even more badass once they do. I've read the description for the next book, and I'm kinda leery. Doesn't sound like it will live up to the first three, and I would be totally bummed buying something I won't read, but don't let my reading issues stop you from getting the first three books. Well worth the money even if you don't read any further. I mean who doesn't like a chick with kickass guns!

Niki as an Abnormal who can not work anymore under the laws of the New Government.

One day she stumbles into The Deep Blue Sea Bar and her whole life changes.

We follow Niki as she confronts her father, The Blood and the Archangel Michael. And possible falls in love!

It was a great read!
