Book Review

“Demonic spirits never sleep or take a vacation, always plotting and waiting for the next offensive.” ~ E.A. Bucchianeri, Vocation of a Gadfly

Bryan is a demon wrangler who owns WCPC, a Ghost Busters type agency. He is the best in his business, always getting his ghost. Bryan is cocky, distant, and self-assured. However, during his last assignment he made a huge mistake. He left his partner and lover alone. During that time Chad was possessed by a demon. The demon is exorcised, but Chad will never be the same, nor will their relationship. Bryan is consumed by guilt and feels obligated to be there for Chad whenever he needs him.

Kayden, Bryan’s coworker and friend, has a complicated, off and on relationship that causes him more grief than comfort. In the past, he was also involved with Bryan. Bryan wants to be with Kayden, but he can’t seem to get through to him. Kayden rejects all of his advances, saying he wants to be friends only. Kayden doesn’t have Bryan’s abilities to sniff out and communicate with spirits, but he is a tactile psychic, someone who can touch an object and see whom it belonged to and the circumstances around them.

When a new shipment of articles comes into the WCPC, as usual, Kayden starts to work on them. During his analysis, he comes across artifacts that begin to tell him a fascinating story about a slave girl and her master that is frightening and intriguing at the same time. The last object Kayden picks up gives him visions of something that appears to be the use of black magic by the slave girl he has seen in his observations. The WCPC is hired to examine the house where the articles Kayden has been working with come from. Bryan takes Kayden along on the trip with him, thinking that it’s just a routine haunting, but Kayden suspects it will turn out to be more complicated than that.

This is a good start to a new series. I liked the idea of the agency and its mission but got a bit tangled up in the presentation of the characters. It was hard for me to get attached to anyone but Chad, for whom I felt profound sadness. He seemed so lost and in pain, but who wouldn’t after being possessed? I’m looking forward to getting to know Kayden and Bryan better and seeing what happens during the next mission. Thanks, Lynn, for an intriguing beginning.
