Read in February, 2012

** spoiler alert ** This is the second in the John Taylor series. I think Mr. Green's storytelling is getting more assured and his handling of the more iconic characters is just right (like Merlin and the big reveal at the end). It makes perfect sense that ALL angels are bad news for the Nightside, since most of its inhabitants are shades of grey.

I liked the rapport between JT and Shotgun Suzie, but I was a little disappointed that she turned out to be a sexual-abuse victim. That seems to be a mini-trend among "butt-kicking babes" and I'd like to see other reasons that women get violent. Still, it does fit this character and the Nightside in general, where everyone seems to be somewhat damaged.

All in all, a good book. On to the next one, Nightingale's Lament.
