Taking out hellish creatures—not a problem. Armed with blessed silver hollow-points and the ability to manipulate magick, he’s ready for anything—except betrayal he never saw coming…
Deacon Chalk knows the biggest danger in fighting monsters is becoming one. Just another day at the office for your friendly neighborhood occult bounty hunter. If keeping three helpless were-dog children safe means battling a malevolent trio of witches by any means necessary, so be it. If that means partnering with a ruthless government agent to stay one step ahead of the allies and friends he must now suspect, he’s not going to cry about it. The only way Deacon can save humans and shape-shifters alike is to embrace a power beyond his imagining, putting his team at stake—and his soul on the line…

I have reviewed the previous Deacon Chalk books before and they are one of my favourite series. Whilst I love that there are so many female characters being focused on in books these days, it is also great to see a really good male character.
This next book is much dark than previous books but it still brings all of the elements that I loved before, it's really action packed and I really like the other characters that he has around him.
This book picks up from the previous book with no delay. The first couple of chapters are all on action as Deacon and his crew have some witches and wizards after them. Throughout the rest of the book it doesn't get much better as more creatures come out to attack them. There is so much more too and without giving spoilers away, it is those extra stories that make these books so much more than 'just a action story'.
The best thing about the book is also there is so much stuff to still learn about their worlds and I am really excited about what could happen in the next book!
Start at the beginning and you'll end up hooked on this series, like I am!
