I want to be Evalle. I want her dialog, her ability to kick butt and most of her name. I mean, I was pronouncing it correctly while reading it, but when you could mispronounce it as “evil”, well, that sold me. I just finished it and now I want the next in the series, but will probably have to wait a year. Quinn is an excellent foil to Evalle and sounds really hunky. As with all new urban fantasy novels, world building is the set up for the series. This one went rather quickly. I did have some trouble with the names and pronunciations. Maybe in the next book, there will be an index or reference guide to help me through them.
The demons (bad guys) are really done with a lot of humor. They are described as all having terrible scents and you can easily imagine a rotten egg or garbage smell. That really added an extra dimension to the story. Or course, Evalle has a quest and finds herself constantly in harms way. She is just developing her powers and it will be interesting to see where they lead. Overall, one of the best urban fantasy books I have read in awhile.
