BACK LASH is still written solely from Shame's perspective. We found out that he has shared his house living together with Terric and Terric's boyfriend, Dash. Shame and Terric are the only people who can still has and use magic after both of them (with the help of Cody) has put an end to access of magic. Shame is still feeding his Death magic by killing people from Victor's list while Terric does his by volunteering down at the cancer ward and hospitals. But then they found dead bodies with sign of murder by magic. And not only that, Terric's younger sister Jolie came to Portland for protection, after she hacks Russian mob's account and steal a LOT of their money to be given to charities.
I highly enjoyed this new adventure of Shame and Terric. It was really intriguing how people could still find a back door to channeling and use magic, which resulted on those murders. I liked the twist that Monk given, because there were actually two parties involved with the victims that were killed and how they were killed. I enjoyed the process of Shame and Terric trying to find out who they were.
I also liked the addition of Jolie. She is smart and gutsy. She is a Conley after all. It is darn time that Shame meets a girl that could deal with him and his 'darkness'. Plus she's Terric's sister ... it will be delicious to think about. It will annoy the hell out of Terric, but at the same time Shame can't purposely mess around her either, not that Jolie can't take care of herself, of course.
Anyway, shall this series continue, I would've really liked it if Jolie continues to be part of the gang. Someone needs to be there for Shame like Dash does with Terric. On the latter note, I was happy that Terric and Dash are pretty solid. They have their fight early on but in the end everything is good with them.
There's a sneak peak of Monk's next book as a bonus. Devon Monk is one of my favorite urban fantasy authors and considering that she BLOWS me away with her House Immortal series, I cannot wait for this new series to hit the shelf as well.
Ok for those who need a more serious review, here it is (I try not to write spoilers if possible):
Life and death magic, sarcasm, Russian mob, family showing up out of the blue, old friends, guns, magic wands = Trouble. Shame and Terric are the only magic user's left in the world, or so they thought. Navigating through life with magical complications while saving Terric's sister, Jolie, from the mess she got herself into proves to be challenging.
This can be a stand alone book, however, I recommend reading the first two books of Shame and Terric's (Hell Bent & Stone Cold). Better yet, I'd recommend reading the Allie Beckstrom series and then moving to Shame and Terric, who are a branch off the original series. Either way, you SHOULD read this book. If you are fans of Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, or anything magic, you will love Shame and Terric!
My only complaint is I want more books in the Shame and Terric world! (I'm going through withdrawal)
A small note (to all you formatting/grammar/conversion police): This is her first book published directly to digital. With that being said, sometimes formatting can cause some issues. (If you've ever converted a book from one type of file to another, you know what I'm talking about) There are about 10 errors in the book (mainly in the middle) where there is an extra letter (usually a Y) or an extra symbol (usually a <) at the end of a word. Not the end of the world, despite what some may think, move forward and read the book. You will enjoy it!
