Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Unclean Spirits by M.L.N Hanover

Unclean Spirits (The Black Sun's Daughter, #1) Unclean Spirits by M.L.N. Hanover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In a world where magic walks and demons ride, you can't always play by the rules.

Jayné Heller thinks of herself as a realist, until she discovers reality isn't quite what she thought it was. When her uncle Eric is murdered, Jayné travels to Denver to settle his estate, only to learn that it's all hers — and vaster than she ever imagined. And along with properties across the world and an inexhaustible fortune, Eric left her a legacy of a different kind: his unfinished business with a cabal of wizards known as the Invisible College.

Led by the ruthless Randolph Coin, the Invisible College harnesses demon spirits for their own ends of power and domination. Jayné finds it difficult to believe magic and demons can even exist, let alone be responsible for the death of her uncle. But Coin sees Eric's heir as a threat to be eliminated by any means — magical or mundane — so Jayné had better start believing in something to save her own life.

Aided in her mission by a group of unlikely companions — Aubrey, Eric's devastatingly attractive assistant; Ex, a former Jesuit with a lethal agenda; Midian, a two-hundred-year-old man who claims to be under a curse from Randolph Coin himself; and Chogyi Jake, a self-styled Buddhist with mystical abilities — Jayné finds that her new reality is not only unexpected, but often unexplainable. And if she hopes to survive, she'll have to learn the new rules fast — or break them completely....

My thoughts:

This was my first M.L.N Hanover book and I really enjoyed it!
I really took to her writing and the way she made her characters.
I don't want to give too many spoilers away, but here's a rough outline..In Unclean Spirits Eric Heller is in the start of the book and quickly dies and leaves his entire estate to his niece, Jayné Heller (her name is pronounced zha-nay, but it’s usually mispronounced as Jane). She's very close to her 23rd birthday, and although her uncles death is tragic she really had noone else to go if she wasn't left a place to stay. Her uncle Eric was the only family she's got. She has a family, but they had a falling out that left Jayne pretty much alone. What Jayne doesn't know is that Eric was into a lot more than he said and was beyond rich. The world isn't what it seems, and she has a hard time believing of the monsters she has to face. She soon ends up with a few people who know how to handle what she's going through, that also new her uncle. Midian, Aubrey, Ex, Chogyi Jake and Jayne team up to face something horrible that Jayne had no clue excisted before this week.
I really liked this book, I read it just before the second came out and quickly went on to the next book. I can't wait for the third book to come out. I'm offically a fan of Hanover's work!
