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

Review: Black Night (Madeline Black, #2) by Christina Henry

Black Night (Madeline Black, #2) Black Night by Christina Henry

My rating:
This is one book you won't want to miss!

Madeline Black is an Agent of death, meaning she escorts the souls of people who have died to the afterlife. Of course, not everyone is happy to see her... 

If obstinate dead people were all that Maddy had to worry about, life would be much easier. But the best-laid plans of Agents and fallen angels often go awry. Deaths are occurring contrary to the natural order, Maddy's being stalked by foes inside and outside of her family, and her two loves-her bodyguard, Gabriel, and her doughnut-loving gargoyle, Beezle-have disappeared. But because Maddy is Lucifer's granddaughter, things are expected of her, things like delicate diplomatic missions to other realms.

Another hit for Christina Henry! I'm very happy I started this series, finally. I can't believe it took this long for me to pick it up.

This time around Madeline is under even more stress than ever. She's mixed up in supernatural politics, beings used a pawns in a game she doesn't want anything to do with and being pressured by all the men in her life. I think she needs a day off, with pay.

This instalment was emotional, exciting and action packed. Beezle is still hilariously annoying and demanding donuts. I read a review where a person hated his character. I can see why they thought he was annoying, but it's a consistent and funny quirk of his. I think the series would be short of great without him.

The ending is left with Madeline more emotional and haggard than usual. She's just getting into a world of unknown and biased politics. I don't envy her.
I'm trying not to give much away, but it's hard not to scream my feelings. I will say this. I'm confused with my love for the men in her life. All have pros and cons, of course Gabriel is number one, but Nathaniel and J.B are growing on me, no matter the incident that happens with Maddie and Nathaniel.

Like I said for 'Black Wings' I highly recommend this series to all Urban Fantasy fans. This is a new favorite of mine and I look forward to each new instalment. Black Lament will be released in October. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
