Angel Burns—a curvy, small town fire fighter with a mysterious past and a sharp tongue—has far more to worry about than her sexist jerk of a boss; she has a gang of demons out for her head. After Angel unwittingly stumbles into an ages old battle between good and evil, long dormant powers are awakened within her, and the denizens of Hell want payback. The only way to keep them from unleashing Hell on Earth is to lock each demon inside a Gutenberg Bible. Angel, looking for vengeance of her own, plans to do just that. And—oh yeah—she has an axe.

This was a very fun ride. It reminded me of Buffy, Supernatural, and the Da Vinci Code. This book was action packed with a storyline that made it hard to put down. It had plenty of twists and a very interesting ending. I loved the action scenes and the cheesy one-liners eased the tension a bit. I am going to have my teens read this next! Great book, fun read, very well written!

C Derick Miller is the new name in supernatural horror and urban horror fantasy.

Somebody call DC and tell them this is how you write a female hero character. Here is the best part about Miller’s female hero, Angel Burns: she has problems and issues, but she deals with them the way a strong woman does instead of remaining a victim of her own neuroses the way many female “hero” characters and lead roles do in today’s literature and cinema. She is fallible and has a stubborn inner strength that both helps and hinders her just like so many real-life women. She is complex and relatable and our story’s hero. THIS! This is how you write a female hero!

That being said, let us discuss the story itself.

It’s amazing.

Don’t be fooled by the simplistic, misleading synopsis blurb. The story has substance, much more substance than the synopsis indicates. I do not like the synopsis. I DO like the book!

Extinguished is entertaining, well-paced, and full of both action and suspense. And the supernatural elements are brilliant. Time constraints prevented me from reading it in one sitting, but I wanted to. Much like a favorite TV show, I found myself thinking about the story when I wasn’t reading it. I was hooked on it. And now it’s over. And I’m sad. I love the story and the characters.

But wait.

The ending was surprisingly great! It gave excellent closure to the book but also left a teasing possibility for more books in the future. So maybe it is not completely over? More books like this one? Yes please.

Extinguished is a solid, enjoyable read with vivid characters and excellent flow. Five stars to C Derick Miller and five stars to Extinguished. I can’t wait to read more from this talented author.

Shelf worthy and on my shelf!

It is scary and it’s damned good. It is well researched with fascinating details about libraries around the country which highly added to my enjoyment of the novel. Miller knocked it out of the park yet again. Kudos!

Interesting read

It was an interesting story, just not something I would usually read. Good story and really good characters, even though some are really creepy.
