Jessie Garrett, is a soul-catching, half demon, that braves the day as a data entry analyst and moonlights during the evenings as a paranormal ghost hunter. And you thought you had it difficult! Supernatural creatures are bursting out of the woodwork in this entertaining and fast paced, sequel to Claiming an Evil Dead.
Hot alpha demon Jeremy is back and is need of Jessie’s “unique” talent of catching souls. His friend Alan, a werewolf, is having a simple problem with another werewolf that is abusing people. The werewolves plan to challenge and kill him and then have Jessie eat his soul so he is banished to hell. Just that simple or so Jeremy says. Of course, nothing is simple in Jessie’s life and Jessie finds herself thrust into the thick of things.
Jessie is a wonderful character and I found myself really engaged with her. I found myself routing for her need for privacy, on her side when she was arguing with her roommate Dani, and torn between who I wanted her to end up with. The action is fast and furious and kept me on the edge of my sofa from start to finish. I should note that I have not read the first book of the series, but I did not feel like I was missing any significant backstory. Ms. Abshire does an excellent job in the first couple of chapters integrating the highlights, so I was able to jump right into the book without a problem.
I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to Jessie’s other adventures in Fighting Evil and Claiming an Evil Dead. A great addition for those that enjoy paranormal with a heated shot of romance.
