Who will pay the price when Black and Calyx crawl back to the JCPD?

Though Black has managed to defuse the escalating war for the time being, he has left himself, Calyx, and the rest of JC2 in a vulnerable position. Friendless on the streets, mistrusted by the police, Black knows that when his enemies come he can present little defense against them...and that is not an

Still going strong

This series is EVERYTHING!!! The tables have been turned and there's the possibility of a glimmer of hope. Mah gawd, this was so good!

Do you know the feeling, when you have locked a book character in your heart? When you love a series so much you never want it to end? Simply because you nearly feel addicted to it and you wait impatiently for the next book? I bet you do. That's what Juxtapose City is to me. I can't stress enough how much I love Black and Calyx. Calyx, with his attitude, who made me burst with laughter every little while. Black, with his compulsion to do the right thing to keep everybody safe.

Another good instalment in this series. This author doesn’t cease to amaze me, she’s able to conjure bad guys that are both credible and despicable but also very human (or psypath, as the case may be). I’m not sure if the next one of the one after that is the last one in the series (I haven’t even been able to make myself check that the series actually ends and isn’t actually one of those that gets cut off at some arbitrary point in time leaving all the fans hanging)

Review by The Blogger Girls.

There are so many things that I love about this series, and each time I start the next book, all of them come flooding back to satisfy my cravings for more. I especially enjoy when characters have unique voices or quirks that each time hearing them again brings back memories from all the previous stories. Such is the case here with Black and even more so with Calyx.

I absolutely adore Calyx. He has so many layers, has seen so many things and been forced or chosen to

This is a fantastic series and this particular book built on everything I've come to love in this series. The relationship between Black and Calyx has been well established through Books 1-8 as being unshakeable and it deepens in this installment. There was, however, one scene where I was truly shocked by something Black did (wasn't expecting that he would go that far at all) and it was a little unconvincing that Calyx was willing to forgive him for it and quite easily rationalize his terrible ...more

I'm loving the Juxtapose City series a lot. So many different and diverse characters that aren't perfect and even with their flaws you can't help but love them. The Prodigal Son was a bit short, it and the previous book felt a bit like a filler book for the build up to the oncoming war between JC and the Silent City.

I like this book in that I don't know whose side I want to win - the psypaths or the normals or if a peaceful cohabitation or truce is possible between the two. I'm dying to know

Oh man, probably ten years of reading these and still no end in sight. Can't wait for the next installment- don't leave us hanging! These fellas are literally part of my life, and I would be a different person today without them.

Another good book

This is one of my favourite series, and this one did not disappoint. Fast paced and keeping you guessing on what's going to happen. Only criticism is not long enough but can't wait for the next book.

I can't wait for Captain Dick to fucking die!!! He's so fucking cocky and sure of himself, like he's untouchable. He needs to be tortured slowly before being put down like the monster he is!

wow. this one packed a punch .... especially the last part. I felt for Black
this book also highlighted for me the relationship between Calyx and Black. I love them together. especially Calyx dedication to Black is awesome

I really hope Black doesn't have to uphold his agreement with Sundhill. that would be a bit of a problem for me

What a messed up thing to do any son. The games being played is really crazy. Plots within plots. How does Black keep it straight in his head. While not going completely around the bend over the edge crazy.

It should probably be 3 stars, but I enjoyed this series. Of PWP, there was more of the first than the second P, but they were both pretty fun. So 4 stars for me. YMMV.

Alors alors.... alors je ne vais pas revenir sur mon amour pour cette série, je vous en ai déjà parlé en long en large et en travers et plus les tomes passent et plus j'adore. Je ne sais pas comment se débrouille l'auteur et j'avoue que je n'ai lu aucun de ses autres romans mais cette série est tout simplement géniale. Et je ne m'en lasse pas. Parce que sérieux.. qui voudrait que sa série préférée s’arrête??

Une fois de plus j'ai retrouvé mes chouchous, de plus en plus attachants de plus en plus

No matter how I feel about the progression of the books individually, as a whole I am addicted to Juxtapose City, Black and Starr. I love how the dynamic between the two of them has gotten better. I'm pissed there's no answers for what happened to Black in the 8th book. Another reviewer said they felt like this was a filler book, I do too. Tricia has a habit of doing that with these books. Most are under 200 pages so I feel like they could be combined and occasionally one or two may end with a ...more
I'm confused. This series was supposed to be completed in 9 books. When will the 10th be out?

Another great book in this series! I wish it had been longer and I can't wait for the 10th book! Calyx is my favorite character in this series. He makes me laugh and he is very loyal to Black.

I love this series and can't get enough of Black, Caylx, and the rest of the JC2 team! Juxtapose City is a frightful place but they make it better.
