Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
As the owner of the Midnight Agency, a private investigation company, I handle all sorts of cases that the police are unable to solve. This case was nothing different. Girls from a local club have come up missing and it is up to me, Rian MacCaren, to find them. Only problem is that the bad guy is no longer human. He is something else. That’s what happens when you sell your soul to a demon.
In A Slaughter of Angels, Rian MacCaren is the owner of the Midnight Agency, a private investigation company specializing in the kind of cases the police can’t solve. He’s a Nephilim, and he deals in the paranormal. His latest case is nothing out of the ordinary, for him at least. Girls from a local club have gone missing, and Rian has to find them. When the girls turn up dead, and the culprit appears to be something more than human, Rian might be in for more than he bargained for.
I absolutely love books that mix detective novel with paranormal. Rian’s unique abilities, such as being able to connect to what the dead girls experienced by touching them, brings an extra layer to the book. Rian isn’t afraid of swearing, and he does fit the brooding loner type. He reminded me of the detectives in noir novels, except of course with the paranormal element.
The plot was entertaining, the pacing was spot on, and overall, I really enjoyed this book. The author did a great job describing the setting, and introducing the reader to the characters.
