Black Heart - Christina Henry

As a former Agent of Death, Madeline Black is no stranger to witnessing violent ends. But being the one to cause them is an entirely different story…

Despite her having saved Chicago from a vampire invasion, the Agency wants to get Maddy off their payroll—permanently. With the deadly Retrievers hot on her trail, she has no choice but to trust Nathaniel to port her to safety. But even the exotic and dangerous world that she winds up in is not as peaceful as she would have hoped. Caught in a turf war between a group of fae and a disturbingly familiar foe, Maddy soon discovers that the twisted plots of her grandfather, Lucifer, and his brothers extend even into this unknown realm.

Now, with enemies gathering on all sides, Maddy’s fate is looking darker than ever. And to protect her unborn son from her adversaries, she may have to tap into a power she hoped never to access…

My thoughts:
I do like this series and when I finished the book I went online t at once to find out when the next book is coming out. The fall! Woe me!

The writing has also gotten better with each book, book 1 was a bit, eh, the story was awesome but it had some issues (but was still awesome ;). The only problem this book had was a conversation that was a bit silly in the middle of the book. But who cares, cos the rest is kick-ass.

Maddy is being hunted by the Agency since she left. She and Nathaniel got down and dirty (mixed feelings about that. She met her third uncle and revelations were made in the last that has an impact here. To protect her she is sent far away and gets into trouble. But she also meets someone whom I liked.

She kicks more ass. She learns a few secrets and something big happens and I got mad. Arghhh, evilness going on. The pace is good and something is always going on. Just too bad Lucifer was so busy with his baby mama, cos he is always cool to read about.

Conclusion:
I can't wait for more.

  7. haha 'who cares cause the rest is kickass' yeah thats the way to look at it sometimes when you like a book so much you can still see its faults but those don't even really matter compared to how awesome the rest of it is.

    I think I have THIS book but not the preceding ones - how did that happen!?

  11. I feel like I'm missing out on something very enjoyable! I don't think I've heard much, if anything, about this series and you're already on book #6 ready for book #7. Eek! I need to look into fixing this issue. :-) Glad you enjoyed the book so much and the Fall is only a few months away...right...trying to send happy thoughts your way. :-D

    1. No, it's sooooooooooooo far away. I wanted the next one at once. That is truly the bad thing about a series

  12. I wanted to read this series! Well, still do...but once again I find myself jumping on board way too late. Once a series goes past #3 or #4 I find it unlikely I will ever be able to catch up!
