Rose, a human, and Priest, a demon, are two unlikely companions, but Priest is having some sort of mid-life crisis even though he's thousands of years old and Rose intrigues him. When she dies homeless in a shop doorway he takes her to his hideaway between places and that's when things get really interesting.
I'm not sure exactly what I thought when I picked up this book, maybe an interesting new paranormal adventure or something along those lines. While it was that, it was also more. This is a book that is a bit beyond me in terms of philosophical and existential viewpoints and really big words that made me get out a dictionary, something I haven't had to do in donkey's years. Not necessarily a bad thing, but at this point in my life I just want to be entertained and not think too hard. This story made my head hurt at times. Now, don't get me wrong, it's very well-written and the main characters, for the most part, are complex and intriguing even if their actions are sometimes not so complex. And once I got past the heavy reading the underlying story is a suspenseful and often times humorous read. The ending is left a bit up in the air, but I would definitely read the next installment to see what happens to Rose and Priest. But I'd take ibuprofen first, just in case of imminent headache. *winks*
