What if religion is real, not just christian, but all religion. And what if every supernatural being you've ever heard of is real too? Then you'd have Gini Koch's Prosaic City.

Agent Victoria Wolfe, from Prosaic City Police Dept, The Night Beat Division as well as a Major in the Necropolis Enforcement, is our feisty heroine. She is partnered by Agent Jack Wagner, a human police man. It is their job to protect and serve and send Hell's Minions back where they belong.

As you'd expect from a Gini Koch novel, we have a snarky heroine who seems to be right in the middle of the good vs evil battle. Whilst religion is an integral part of the book, it is in no way preachy. Angels are pretty much matter of fact, along with the other members of her Necropolis team, a werewolf who likes to stay in wolf form, a succubus, a zombie, a couple of vampires, a lich and various ghosts.

Favourite good guy quote: "May the Gods and Monsters save us."

The last half of the book really picked up and I was sorry when it ended. I want the next one soon!!
