Book Review and Feature: The Better Part of Darkness by: Kelly Gay

This book completely blew my top off. I love it! Read below for my review, the summary, and check out the author's site and blog! 

Summary: Charlie Madigan is a divorced mother of one, and a kick-ass cop trained to take down the toughest human and off-world criminals. She's recently returned from the dead after a brutal attack, an unexplained revival that has left her plagued by ruthless nightmares and random outbursts of strength that make doing her job for Atlanta P.D.'s Integration Task Force even harder. Since the Revelation, the criminal element in Underground Atlanta has grown, leaving Charlie and her partner Hank to keep the chaos to a dull roar. But now an insidious new danger is descending on her city with terrifying speed, threatening innocent lives: a deadly, off-world narcotic known as ash. Charlie is determined to uncover the source of ash before it targets another victim -- but can she protect those she loves from a force more powerful than heaven and hell combined?

WOW! This book is amazing. I haven't read a book this imaginative in some time, which is definitely a good thing. I was starting to think the world ran out of creative ideas. The characters are awesome and richly developed; Hank is definitely by far my favorite. I also love how the characters are described as "beings from heaven and hell"; this book lends to both good and bad as well as the non-typical mythological often do you see a book with Sirens, let alone male Sirens. The plot is amazing and action packed from page one...just a totally awesome book. READ IT!!!
