Jaime proves to be an outstanding heroine and seeing this world from her POV is a treat. Being a good-hearted person, being a necromancer, AND being in showbiz aren't really compatible with each other, but somehow the woman makes it work. And watching her do it is impressive indeed. The climax where the Otherworld's damsel of perpetual distress is forced to think fast and wield her big supernatural stick is a killer. Particularly when Jaime has been kidnapped/saved, bitten by vampire spirits, and generally been rendered moot so many times in the series. Paige, Elena, Karl Marsten, Savannah, Kristoff Nast, and many other Otherworld all-stars make appearances as does the dark angel herself, Eve, and her daughter Savannah (who has a truly awesome sequence). Then, of course, there's Jeremy; Alpha werewolf, object of Jaime's affection, aloof intellectual, and general all-around great guy. Plenty of him to go around and a nice conclusion to their little romance arc that's been many books in the making.
NHI has everything I love about this series and that is....well, everything. Like I say in the video, if you love Buffy The Vampire Slayer , Angel , or any other supernatural series with a self-aware sarcastic streak than these are books you owe it to yourself to read. Oh, and Ms. Armstrong, I'm still waiting for that Cassandra novel!
