GIVEAWAY The Better Part of Darkness by Kelly Gay (Book Review 220)


The Better Part of Darkness by Kelly Gay

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

I was so excited to get my hands on this book and it was everything I wanted:  Intricate world building that was such a pleasure to read and I loved how the author slipped in details along the way. Great characters that made me want to spend more time with them.  (I am sooo buying the second one in the series the minute it is released!)  And a plot that follows through.  For a debut, this one is amazing.  Charlie Madigan is right up with Jazz Parks for me. 


Product Description


Atlanta: it's the promised city for the off-worlders, foreigners from the alternate dimensions of heaven-like Elysia and hell-like Charbydon. Some bring good works and miracles. And some bring unimaginable evil....

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?
