I'm assuming everyone who's read advanced copies of this book-slash-was-emailing-RJC-vomiting-emoticons was disgusted by the Colleen Incident. Um. Well. Maybe I'm just really fucked in the head as well, because that didn't revolt me. (And TBH even if it had I would have kept reading.)

Anyway. I didn't love Gideon as much as I loved Hollywood but he definitely had the bigger badder bad guy thing going on. RJC was definitely right when he made the 'not for kiddies' disclaimer, but I love it. The ch

My Review(Daughter):

I was forewarned by Crane that I might not like the disturbing scene that everyone was talking about so he wanted to let me know to watch out for it. And I admit it was disturbing indeed, but I also know why it was there. We needed to truly see the emptiness that Gideon is and the depravity of the situation showed us that Gideon only cares for his next "fix", so to speak. So from an author's standpoint, I believe that Cr

This is the second in the Southern Watch series, a whole new ball game for high fantasy and urban fantasy author Crane.

It is darker, more risqué and offers scenarios that can push the boundaries. It just depends on what those boundaries are for each reader.

On a side note Crane seems to have it going on in the whole erotic scene creation. He has got the soul-eating, sorry soul-sucking by Gideon down to a fine art. Demon ejaculation 101 that's all I'm saying.

However that also seems to be whole poi

Good fun.

If you're a fan of Supernatural and the genre, then you'll enjoy this book. This is the second in the series and is as good as the first. The protagonist is a demon hunter who wanderers the American landscape attempting to revenge himself on the demons that destroyed his family and life. The current hot spot is in Midian, TN and there's one local deputy who is willing to help, that and the support of the mysterious woman known only as Sparrow. Good read, starting the third of the series

Sometimes, the second book in a series can be a bit of a let down. I was worried. I shouldn't have been. It easily holds its own against Called. Starting reasonably slowly, but ultimately rushing to a finale that leaves more questions than answers, this is, once again, a thoroughly enjoyable book from this writer.

However, before release, readers were warned that this one would be darker than the previous one, more disturbing. He was right. Gideon's character made me want to take my brain out and

I enjoyed the first book, but this one is even better. The main characters all experience growth and have their own moments in the book. New characters are introduced in interesting ways.

The story itself is presented in an interesting way. There are continuing plot lines from the first book that are resolved or clarified, as well as new mysteries to solve.

I am definitely looking forward to the next installment.

Great series, 3 days ago I discovered Robert J Crane and I feel like a kid who just discovered the taste of candy. I blew through Books 1 and 2, so I am sure I will finish the series this Labor Day weekend! I highly recommended these books and I look forward to the remaining 3.

Much better than the first in the series. More story and less violence. but still plenty of monster fighting. It's been over a year since I read Called but I'll make an effort to read Corrupted soon so I can stay in the story.

Good read, the demons in this one a little more out there and adult then the last. Interested to see where it goes from here.

Can I rate this lower? It is hard to put my dislike into words. Utter crap. Maybe not that difficult to find the words.

An excellent continuation of this series. The addition of Duncan and Lerner to the cast added an almost comic affect. And who/what is Starling? I guess that will be answered in book #3.
