4.5/5; 5 stars; AI started out listening to the audiobook of this story but found I didn't want to stop the story when I had to stop with the listening so I started the e-book. That's always a good indication that a book is too good to put down. I liked the pacing, world building, characters, 'dogs', and overall story line. I think it was helpful that I've read the Demonica series so a lot of the characters were familiar.There is a slightly different flavor to this story than the Demonica stories which some reviewers don't seem to like but I found it refreshing. Larissa Ione is a great writer of this type of book!
