Ious Grace No goody bags sponsorships material connections or bribes were exchanged for my review The only payment received came in the form of hugs and kisses from my little boys This one bothered me a little by this point in the series our intrepid heroes should not be making so many bone headed mistakes There are other ways of forcing the plot along Mr HanoverAbraham This series is SO good This is the third book and it is a little darker and packs a harder punch than the first two I can t wait to see what s next for Jayne and her crew With this book Jayne comes into her own She is finally comfortable in her role as leader The group gets a call from Kim Aubrey s ex for a ob Once they get to Chicago they find some very interesting things The property that they find holds all sorts of secrets in there those secrets have explosive conseuences Up to this point I had really liked Eric thought he was a fun guy but those secrets put him into a whole knew light Jayne was rocked to her core with these revelations The setting of the big bad was Rising Above The Influence: A True Story about Alcohol, Drugs, and Recovery just plain creepy for me This big old hospital with tons of corridors odd additions added on is where a lot of the action takes place Add to that that the big bad could take over mass peopleust creepy me out And for the first time Jayne hers I m pissed royally pissed as in angry not drunk and I can t tell you why because it doesn t happen until the end of the book But I m angry enough that I may not read the next one I hated the ending that much I was close to tears with anger and sorrow Until the end this was a solid story although it did play head games I liked that the heroine wasn t constantly doing stupid things only sometimes which wasn t unrealistic with her age her past and her current situation wasn t constantly being saved by men wore normal clothes unlike on the cover wasn t always angry and hateful although she had a lot of angst she did see when she was being unfair and she grows from book to boom Cool that the series is written by a guy I like the premise but I don t always like the plot and this one was so so Some of the characters are kind of caricatures and unfortunately these are the ones the author likes the best I think Aubrey s ex wife Kim makes a reappearance and I can t stand her We FINALLY get a hint about the series name although is it the right direction I m not sure But the ending was wrong and unnecessary for two reasons AND I CAN T TELL YOU WHY Suffice to say it was way too dark for this series This is not dark and gritty UF it s got frickin romance And the second reason is ust shitty but playing dirty soap opera crap 35 stars but I m taking off a star for the ending I ll be nice and round up though partially because of this great line from the book A dog was barking somewhere nearby in a lazy conversational way I ve heard that bark and *I know exactly what Hanover is describing But I m so pissed 45 starsHave you ever been in *know exactly what Hanover is describing But I m so pissed 45 starsHave you ever been in of those cobbled together buildings where the 1st floor of the original structure opens onto the 3rd floor of the new wing and you can only access the fourth floor by a staircase at the far end of that older building that got swallowed up into the whole mass at some point and so on I work in one and after reading Vicious Grace I don t think I ll ever see it the same way again Gee thanks MLN Hanover for making me scared of my own office building g Vicious Grace is the third in Hanover s urban fantasy series The Black Sun s Daughter This one s set in Chicago at labyrinthine Grace Memorial Hospital where a sleep researcher has noticed an eerie anomaly in his latest study all of his subjects have had the same dream of an inhuman creature crawling out of a coffin Jayn Heller and her team are called in to help Conveniently Jayn s uncle Eric left her a condo in the city and the gang settles in to investigateThey uncover a ghastly history the tendrils of which reach intimately into Jayn s own life than she d have ever guessed What she learns leads her to uestion everything she thought she knew and she faces some harrowing moral choices that reveal less than admirable facets of her personality There s so little I can say without spoiling the best parts of the story but Hanover makes gutsy plotting decisions that change the reader s perception of the whole seriesAdd
huge helpings of suspense plus plenty of development In particular we see of Ex and Chogyi Jake and how their respective faiths shape their actions There s also some romantic drama Jayn is worried about losing Aubrey to Kim and the feelings of all three characters are realistically and sympathetically portrayed Vicious Grace is a chilling novel on two levels the external horror of the haunted hospital and the internal horror in Jayn s mind as she considers the uses and abuses of the power she has inherited from Eric I couldn t put it down You ll want to read Unclean Spirits and Darker Angels first otherwise the impact of this installment won t be as great but Vicious Grace is the best of the series so farReview originally posted at Fantasy Literature Still great narration though I didn t connect with the actual story here as well as I did the first two books. Rible ritual and it's straining to be free Jayné is primed to take on whatever's about to be let loose Yet the greatest danger now may not be the huge unseen force lurking below but the evil that has been hiding in plain sight all along taking her ever closer to losing her body her mind and her sou.

He last person she ever wanted to talk to again Jayn her ex s girlfriend When Jayn s team arrives to help it becomes obvious that they may be all in over their heads with this case Normally Jayn follows a simple mantra when dealing with demons and the like What Would Eric Do But is that the right way to do it Eric might have had other plans for the thing trapped below Grace which may or may not have been for the greater goodJayn has always thought of her Uncle Eric as a hero roaming the country defeating the evil demons and saving the innocent It s unfortunate that her child like view of her uncle s heroic deeds crumbles under the mounting evidence to the contrary The team discovers that Eric has been maneuvering people into play around Grace Memorial At first they all believe that Eric was meaning to release whatever is trapped under the hospital and use it against his enemies in the Invisible College When they realize that what lies beneath is evil they must come to terms with the idea that Eric might be an evil too For Jayn this is a tragic blow She must now decide what path to follow the one her uncle laid out or strike out and make her own wayJayn is also battling abandonment issues with her made family her team Her boyfriend Aubrey is showing signs of still being attached to his ex wife Jayn doesn t want to give Aubrey up but she can no longer stand idly by while he decides what he wants to do She ends up dumping him first This is classic behavior for Jayn She would rather be the one to cut ties first before the other person does I think this gives her a sense of control over a situation where she has so very little This in turn becomes a metaphor for her whole life To protect herself she pushes people away before she becomes too emotionally invested Until she comes to terms with the abuse her family has inflicted on her she will remain separated from people on a personal level In the future I hope to see Jayn face her fears and insecurities head on ust like she does with hunting demonsThe only downside I find in the series to date is this When are we going to learn about why the series is called Black Sun s Daughter Yes I can guess the reason but I would like to know all the details I mean usually by now readers can surmise a series name from the books but here we are in book three and still no confirmation Maybe the next book I hope that all this teasing pans out if you know what I meanOverall I have to say that this series is ust getting better and better The heroine is growing and learning from her mistakes and is a far cry from the sheltered girl we met in the first book She s becomes a captivating character in each new book I can t wait to see where we go nextNotable SceneLooking back at my childhood I couldn t say my father had done me many favors The lessons he d tried to instill in me things like never wear a skirt that goes above the ankle and Jesus died because kids sneak into movie theaters never really took But that s not the same as saying I never learned anything from him Throughout the weird udgmental ust barely repressed Christian same as saying I never learned anything from him Throughout the weird udgmental ust barely repressed Christian fest that was my childhood home I d picked up uite a bit about how the world works Not all of it had immediately applied but some bits still came in handyFor instance when I was ten years old the doctors found a suspicious lump on my big brother Jay s spinal column My mother called from the doctor s office in "hysterics saying that no one was telling her "saying that no one was telling her and they were running tests she didn t understand I could hear every word she said even though my father had the telephone handset to his ear He sat at the kitchen table scowling and fighting to interrupt my mother s litany of fear and confusion He was in a white T shirt and the battered canvas work pants he always wore on his days off In the end he told my mother to sit down be uiet and wait Then he told me to find my little brother Curtis and get him in the car That I was too young to stay by myself and he didn t have time to find someone to watch us His tone of voice left no room for disagreementBy the time I d done what he said little Curt suirming in his car seat and demanding cartoons my father had transformed himself His hair was combed back He had a good grey suit on with a deep red tie He smelled of cologne and he looked like a movie star or a president I d never seen him this way even for churchWhen we got to the doctor s office he dropped Curtis and me in the waiting room with my mother and went back to speak to the doctors and nurses Five minutes later he came out with answers to every uestion Mom had asked him My mother drank all the information in yes Jay was going to be admitted overnight yes cancer was a possibility but it wasn t the best suspect *no there wasn t cause for immediate alarm I watched relief pour over her like cool water on a burn But *there wasn t cause for immediate alarm I watched relief pour over her like cool water on a burn But didn t miss my father s little smile or my mother s near subliminal
