Gods & Monsters

Shadow Inquiries Book #3

Sylvie Lightner is no ordinary P.I. She specializes in cases involving the unusual and unbelievable. When she finds the bodies of five women in the Florida Everglades, Sylvie believes them to be the work of a serial killer and passes the buck. But when the bodies wake and shift shape, killing the police, Sylvie finds herself at the head of a potentially lethal investigation

Sylvie has been through a lot and learned a lot about her self since book one in the Shadows Inquiries series.  I'm going to start out by saying I really missed having Demalion by her side and I really hope he returns in book 4. Wales from book 2 comes back and helps a ton with the case that Sylvie is working. He was a great addition to her team and I hope that he stays on. There is also the return of another character from a previous book but I cant tell you who as it would give away the surprise. The plot has many layers that are pealed back as the story progresses. The pacing gave the right amount of information at the right times. The mysteries remained mysteries until the perfect moment of reveal. GODS & MONSTERS was a great addition to the series, I would recommend you start at book one SINS & SHADOWS though as there are continuing story lines within the new events and you might have a hard time following along. 

I gave it 4/5 stars
