 When you’re staring evil in the eye, don’t forget to watch your back . . .For the first time in forever, Jayné Heller’s life is making sense. Even if she routinely risks her life to destroy demonic parasites that prey on mortals, she now has friends, colleagues, a trusted lover, and newfound confidence in the mission she inherited from her wealthy, mysterious uncle. Her next job might just rob her of all of them. At Grace Memorial Hospital in Chicago, something is stirring. Patients are going AWOL and research subjects share the same sinister dreams. Half a century ago, something was buried under Grace in a terrible 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 soul. . . .

Lexy’s Thoughts:
Like a punch to the gut, you are taken by surprise, feet kicked out from under you, gasping for air, and mind reeling. After some revelations about the mysterious Eric are discovered more than one of our characters will feel this way.

JaynÉ, Aubrey, Chogyi Jake and Ex are called in as reinforcements by Kim. There is something big going on where she works, something that is going to change the course of all their lives. Even if there wasn’t this big unknown just the fact that JaynÉ and the guys are going to be around Kim has some serious tension potential. The ex-wife hanging out with the current girl friend is a tried and true drama waiting to happen; only hang up is JaynÉ actually likes Kim.

With each book you can see how much foreshadowing Hanover does. As pieces to the puzzle that is JaynÉ’s life are found you can look back and see the hints that were so cleverly hidden. When the group finally finds and opens up a hidden room of Eric’s you might catch yourself wanting to yell out loud, finally!
There is a lot of action in Vicious Grace, more so than the first two books. It really feels like a pivotal point in the larger story arc. Hanover gives the characters more challenge and emotional attacks than ever before. Everyone is tapped to the max in manners of special talents, physical stamina, and courage. And if that isn’t enough to have you gripping the edge of your seat, the very last line of the book finally drops the bomb that we have been waiting for.

Lexy's Rating: 3.5 Wine Glasses!
