From the Back Cover
A demon's enslaved executioner—a ravager of lives and souls—Maliha Crayne has been reborn, willing to sacrifice her immortality for a chance at freedom . . . and salvation. Now she has an opportunity to prevent the death of thousands—perhaps tens of thousands—to make up for the countless lives she has obliterated over the centuries. To do so, she must locate and destroy an evil cabal of madmen in possession of a weapon of unspeakable power—and survive the immortal assassins who are now after her blood. But it means reverting to the old ways and surrendering once more to the darkness. And if Maliha dies before the mission is accomplished, the hell she once knew will seem like a picnic compared to the eternal torments awaiting her.

I've put this one down to read others lately, not sure when I'll get around to finishing it (never?). If it doesn't spark my interest, it might not spark yours either. I would recommend you buy it only at a discount, and ONLY if you have read the first book, otherwise you'll be very lost and/or confused as it is not a stand alone book.
In this episode, Maliha continues on her quest to find the remaining shards of the Diamond Lens and encounters several Ageless still in the service of their demons, one who has been tasked with collecting the shards from her as she finds them. As another reviewer indicated, this episode definitely takes on a Bond-ish feel due to the over-the-top nature of the villainous organization and weapon involved.
It seemed for awhile there that Maliha was settling down with her 'family,' but we see a return to her old ways as she once again dons the mantle Black Ghost in order to get to the bottom of the mystery central to this episode. Generally books like this don't consider the internal conflict within a character -- and this one isn't terribly deep -- but we do see some of Maliha's struggle between light and dark within herself, especially when she is tempted...
Summary: good, solid pulp fiction with better than average character development and a setup for the next episode.
