Of course her lack of training and inability to control her power makes for quite a few funny moments as she tries to be a badass….and her embarrassing moments usually end up being in front of another agent who is hotter than hot, as well as the hot veterinarian she takes her cat to.
If you can get past a few grammatical errors, it’s a good start to a new series. A fun read despite evil lurking around every corner. There is some fun, snarky dialog, with several laugh out loud moments too. I look forward to reading the next one in the series.
If you like Hannah Jayne’s Underworld Protection Agency series, you’ll enjoy this one.
Madison is pretty much at the end of her rope. No job, and credit cards charged to the max. As a last ditch effort, she applies for a job that she has no experience in, and surprisingly gets an interview. The interviewer seems to know things about her that she has never told anyone, and also things she has no idea about. Seems she has a special ability to see people’s souls. She can tell if people are good, bad, or even slightly bad. What she doesn’t know, is that the world is full of supernatural creatures, and people like her are needed as Illuminant Enforcers to rid the world of the bad ones. It’s not a coincidence that has gotten her the interview, the ad in the paper glowed for her, and only people like her can see the glow.
Madison was such a good character. She is clueless about the supernatural world, is a total girly girl, and becoming a kick ass creature killer is not exactly anything that she ever would have picked for herself. The reader gets to go along for the ride, as Madison learns the tricks of the trade, screws up royally more then once, and generally drives her boss crazy. At times, I was reminded of the Stephanie Plum character, from the Janet Evanovich authored books. I used to laugh out loud at her inept antics, and I laughed just as hard at Madison’s antics. At times, I did want to stop her from doing some of the stuff she does, and she does have a few of those too stupid to live moments, but she was so endearing in other ways, that it didn’t bother me. There are other good characters of course, both the ones at her new office that have different supernatural abilities, and her best friend Bridget. Love interests? Well this wasn’t a romance, but there’s two extremely hot guys that have caught her interest, and they too, were a fun part of the book. And no this wasn’t a love triangle-yet.
This story is full of all kinds of supernatural creatures, some with brains, some with none. I found some of these to be from a whole new supernatural world for me, and believe me that’s hard to do with all the paranormal books I read. So for me, the world building was really different, and also fascinating at times.
I can’t stress enough how much I enjoyed this book. If we still rated with stars, it would be a 5 star one for sure. I would recommend it to all urban fantasy fans, especially ones that don’t mind laughing out loud at times. (PureTextuality.com)
Taking the reader into a parallel dimension her lead character, Madison Fox, refers to as "soul-sight", Chastain weaves an intricate web of evil and her talent to eliminate it. Hard to dislike "imps" described and "fluffy balls of cute" and able to suck the pureness from one's soul without their knowledge. Fox's ineptness creates a character easy to relate too as well as realistic. Her shortcomings and bad decisions only make her more lovable. An acute love of animals and nature flows forth in a tale filled with demons, guns and horny teenage gamers to round out Fox.
I was very impressed with the uniqueness of the story line as well as Chastain's ability to involve the reader in any and all confrontations. She added a sultry vibe without taking it that further step to erotic that allows the reader to know exactly how she feels as a woman.
This is a highly recommended read! Looking forward to book two in the Fall of 2015!
