In the battle between good and evil, there's no such thing as a fair fight.When Jayné Heller's uncle Eric died, she inherited a fortune beyond all her expectations -- and a dangerous mission in a world she never knew existed. Reining in demons and supernatural foes is a formidable task, but thankfully Jayné has vast resources and loyal allies to rely on. She'll need both to tackle a body switching serial killer who's taken up residence in New Orleans, a city rich in voodoo lore and dark magic.Working alongside Karen Black, a highly confident and enigmatic ex-FBI agent, Jayné races to track down the demon's next intended host. But the closer she gets, the more convinced she becomes that nothing in this beautiful, wounded city is exactly as it seems. When shocking secrets come to light, and jealousy and betrayal turn trusted friends into adversaries, Jayné will soon come face-to-face with an enemy that knows her all too well, and won't rest until it has destroyed everything she loves most....

Think of all the cities in the world, now which one would you pick as a hot bed for ghost and demon like paranormal activity? Naturally, New Orleans!
Book two picks up right where book one left off without missing a beat. JaynÉ and her guys are still searching all of Eric’s spread out homes searching for clues. That quickly gets dumped when she gets a call for help to track down a serial killer who happens to be possessed. Who needs vacation time when there is a demon on the loose?
JaynÉ is still young and making mistakes, some will make you shake your head and wish she would wise up. Others happen because she is facing something big dark and old. Hanover gives up a little more of the characters with each passing book. You will feel each of their frustrations, excitement, betrayal, and joy at success. Aubrey seems like he is trying to convince himself he is past Kim. Chogyi Jake continues to surprise with his insights. And Ex has his true feelings revealed but at the same time creating more questions, this is a man that draws you in and makes you want to crawl under his skin to find out what is really going on behind those amazing eyes.
The whole feel of this book is summed up in one simple message, not everything is what it seems. Which goes for the main plot line of this book, but also (if you happen to have read book four first) huge premonition for JaynÉ. Hanover is a cleaver writer, dropping hints that blend in so well it is easy to miss them. Darker Angels is a great addition to the Black Sun’s Daughter series.
