The Better Part of Darkness - Tour and Contest
The Better Part of Darkness
by Kelly Gay
Pocket, Nov. 2009
From the publisher: Divorced mother of one, Charlie Madigan, lives in a world where the beings of heaven and hell exist among us, and they aren't the things of Sunday school lessons and Hallmark figurines. In the years since the Revelation, they've become our co-workers, neighbors, and fellow citizens. Charlie works for ITF (Integration Task Force). It's her job to see that the continued integration of our new "friends" goes smoothly and everyone obeys the law, but when a new off-world drug is released in Underground Atlanta, her daughter is targeted, and her ex-husband makes a fateful bargain to win her back, there's nothing in heaven or earth (or hell for that matter) that Charlie won't do to set things right.
The Darkest Edge of Dawn (Charlie Madigan, Book 2) coming August 31, 2010.
[BTW I have almost finished my copy of this title [thank you, Pocket Books] and find it to be a brilliant, imaginative story with a strong (even sexy) heroine who unlike most in the urban fantasy world has the responsibilities of raising a child.] Longer review to come.
