(1) I am getting a little tired of Bree's political correctness lectures to everyone around her. Which is really the author lecturing. I wonder how much of this is "LOOK I'M A SOUTHERN WRITER AND LOOK AT HOW NOT RACIST I AM LOOK LOOK" Not that I ...more
This time, it was not only Brees job, which pushed Bree to her physical and mental Borders, but also an attack which lands her in an hospital.
We can see a big development in her relationship to Sam Hunter, but I was a bit disappointed that we only got to see so little of Sam in this novel- I could use some more Bree+Sam time!
Also, even if we got to see abit more of what happens during an angelstrial, I was disappointed once again by the lack of information ...more

I enjoyed it. Now I want to read the others in the Beaufort and Co series. I like the characters and the story is a fast read and great escapist fun. What a cool premise, that the dead need lawyers.
