From the Author
On New Year's Eve 2000, the stroke of midnight returned magic, both light and dark, to the world.
Discordia Jones missed it.
Struck down at that same instant like a cut-rate Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty mash up, she awakened three years later to a far stranger life, and saddled with psychic abilities.
Working as a private investigator for Arcane Solutions only brings on more strangeness.
At least there aren't talking mice...

So anyway, without spoiling anything, I was mildly on Team Nick, although I thought he needed to grow up or have a "trapped in an elevator/cabin/dungeon" moment with Logan at some point so he could relax. I met his brother and went down a point. Then I saw his family's plans and I thought, "Uh, oh, run, Cordi, run!"
Not that her relationships are the focus of the plot. They're like a sub-sub-sub plot. It's an action-based series that's part modern noir/private detective and part sword-and-sorcery in the city-- with a heavy dose of sarcasm from the protagonist. Hence the reason I can't just pick it up and read a chapter a day. It moves fast and you don't want to stop turning pages. I'm so glad so many other people have figured out how fun this series is!
This is the author's third book in the series. Her main character, Discord Jones, remains consistent throughout, yet we also get to see her grow into herself and her abilities and better channel her efforts into more constructive approaches. Still, the element of "rash" is a constant theme, and the reader is left wondering how it is that Cordi can manage to survive the potentially deadly outcomes of her more impulsive decisions. In those instances, "supernatural abilities" would hardly seem sufficient to rescue this girl from her terrifying sense of invulnerability against the demons she encounters in her quest to vanquish evil.
The outcome for the reader, however, is a story that you can't put down and one that leaves you yearning for the next chapter. Hats off to Ms. Drummond for a fascinatingly creative story that at the same time is recognizable as a very human tale of a search for love and reconciliation.
I was a bit disappointed in "Discord's" maturity level, some of which can be explained by her extended comatose period, dissolution of her parent's marriage, and abilities that she awoke with (and continue to grow). Still, by this 3rd book, she should be absorbing experience that mitigates emotions.
Discord -- boyfriend issues, and a job with the vampires. The "job" grows far beyond its initial scope, and Discord is thrown into another adventure, one in which she barely escapes with her life. Her dream (god) mentor is spending more time with her, which should mean that future adventures will be even more exciting.
A nice read -- 'looking forward to the "next episode"...
You could easily start with this book, but the earlier novels will help to fill in some details especially as the book progresses.
There is an almost manic feel to the writing style as information is fired out and the attention of our heroine wanders. It adds a bit levity to what could otherwise be quite tragic.
I will be looking for the next book in the series.
