Gaby Cody is a Paladin. The only problem is she is a Paladin now. Raised in foster homes and then taken in by a kindly priest who recognized her for what she is, Gaby has had an unsusual upbringing. She is a combination of warrior and innocent. Det Luther Cross is intrigued by Gaby who doesn't want him to get to close because she is sure he won't believe that the people she has killed are really demons in disguise and that she is working under God's commands. Follow Gaby in her adventure with her landlord/friend Mort, who knows what she is, as they try to stay one step ahead of Det Cross while fighting the evil that crawls through the city. ( )

This was some pretty standard urban fantasy with a dash of romance. You've got a demon hunter guided by God, a righteous cop, and a bumbling but lovable sidekick. Lots of ass-kicking. Lots of menace. Lots of cursing. Nothing too special, but fun for those who enjoy this kind of thing. My big complaint, though, is the overuse of two dollar words. Don't get me wrong. I live for good vocabulary! A perfectly selected word can make my day. But this went too far. "Crepuscule." "Tenebrous." "Nictitating." Those are the words I found in the four pages I just read through. Four pages! It's all too much.

Still, I may well finish out the trilogy. It's a fast read with plenty of action, and I'm curious. Plus, you never know what crazy word I'll come across next. ( )

I've read this book sometime ago so this review is retrospective. This book was recommended to me by a Facebook friend and so I went and bought it. After I've read it, I told my Facebook friend that I would not read any of his recommendations ever again. He then told me that LL Foster is his sister!! Of course I backpedalled furiously! I told Artie that the story telling quality was superb. Which it was! The story telling quality is a 5 out of 5. I must have said something sufficiently pacifying because he is still talking to me. If you plan on getting me a Christmas gift, buy me a duct tape for my mouth please. The reason I gave this book a one out of five is that this book has a cliffhanger ending. I don't like cliffhanger endings! This was the first and the last LL Foster aka Lori Foster book I've read and avoided LFoster since then. ( )

Left me looking forward to the next book in the series.

The blurb on the back cover proclaims:

"One of the most intriguing heroines since J.D. Robb's early Eve Dallas books." —Elizabeth Lowell

Myself a fan of the Eve Dallas books, I can tell you for sure: Nope, this is wrong. For one thing, Dallas is written as a believable character with such novel character elements as background history and a driving personality. And was given a place in an interesting plot set within a fabulously-built storyworld... a storyworld that, you know, had rules and made logical sense and didn't contradict itself. But I digress.

Gaby Cody, on the other hand, is written as Eve Dallas-lite as done by Laurell K. Hamilton for the niche purposes of teen-aged literature. Presumably as away to appeal to the Buffy-fan demographic? Except Buffy was a really smart and interesting show? And that doesn't take into account that a lot of young-adult work is really good.

I do not know or, frankly, care. Neither this series nor this author is recommended. ( )

You nailed it author, I was sucked right after reading the first few paragraphs. You know what, I suggest you join NovelStar's writing competition. A lot of readers will love your work.
