I couldn't put this down,
This review is from: Unclean Spirits (The Black Sun's Daughter, Book 1) (Paperback)
I literally read this book in one day. I don't know much about urban fantasy, but I picked it up on a whim. This book kept my attention as it rolled along at a good adventure style pace. I will definitely buy any future books in this series.
The setting is very interesting, as you have a spiritual world interfering with the "normal" world. In this case, the spiritual or demonic possession is being looked at as a parasite attaching to a host.
The characters are fairly well developed, and I find I actually cared about them. There are a lot of loose ends. Jayne is a young woman, and doesn't appear to have a lot of baggage. The supporting cast, on the other hand, have me very curious regarding their background stories. I don't want to give much away here, but I'm wondering how a buddhist, an ex priest, a scientist got mixed up in all of this. Also, what an awesome legal team at Jaynes disposal. Who are those people? Midian was a lot of fun. I expect these will be clarified in the next two books.
One thing that bothered me:
*** SPOILER ***
I'm going to try and not give anything away here, but there is a major part at the end that doesn't seem as if it would work. If you turn off the magic, then why would you expect a magic bullet to still work?

I believe they said it sort of put a dampener on it didn't just completely turn it off especially for powerful types and that bullet was very powerful.
