It takes a strong woman to keep the peace in a city of endless night. . . .Deep beneath Underground, a cunning bid for power and revenge has begun—one that threatens to make Atlanta the new battleground in the ultimate confrontation between good and evil. The powers of hellish Charbydon have the upper hand after plunging the city into primordial night. And under the cover of darkness, a serial killer targets the most powerful Elysians in the city, the angelic Adonai. For Detective Charlie Madigan and her siren partner Hank, tracking deadly predators is all in a day’s work . . . but this case will test the limits of their strength and friendship as it draws them into a deadly world of power plays, ancient myths, explosive secrets, and a race against time that risks all that Charlie holds dear.
Lexi's Thoughts
The Charlie Madigan series proves to be more than just a one hit wonder, book two will sink its claws even deeper. Pick up a copy of The Darkest Edge of Dawn and you will be adding Kelly Gay to your authors-to-watch list!

Book two is written well enough if you haven't picked up book one you will not feel left in the dust. But why would you want to skip out on the first immersion? Book one introduces Charlie and the other characters wonderfully, you like them or hate them and become attached. Book two delves deeper, you get to know Charlie and Hank so much better. And what a ride they will take you on. 
Charlie has just gotten rid of one big bad in the city, only to find two more have taken his place. And they need her to complete their epic plans. So as Charlie struggles to deal with her new powers, nearly teenage daughter (well done by the way, a real mother daughter relationship), and intense attraction to her partner  Hank she also has to dodge a serial killer. 

More than just Charlie and Hank you get to feel what Rex and Bryn are going through. Tear your heart out stuff. Good thing Brimstone the hellhound is there to break things up with big slobbery kisses.
