I was doing a spotlight post every Wednesday, but I think I am going to switch over to maybe every second week (unless I get a ton of recommendations, that is). For this week’s post, Faris has recommended author A.M. Reine and her Descent series.
The author actually has several interconnected worlds, with the Descent books being connected to her Cain Chronicles, Seasons of the Moon, and Ascension series, so if you enjoy this one you can continue on through several other series. To get things started, let’s look at the first book from the Descent series, which is called Death’s Hand. You can find an excerpt HERE, and the Kindle version is free on Amazon right now.
Policing relations between Heaven, Hell, and Earth is messy and violent, but Elise Kavanagh and James Faulkner excelled at it– until coming across a job so brutal that even they couldn’t stand to see one more dead body.
Now they’ve been pretending to be normal for five years, leaving their horrific history a dark secret. Elise works in an office. James owns a business. None of their friends realize they used to be one of the world’s best killing teams.
After years of hiding, something stirs. Bodies are vanishing. Demons scurry in the shadows of the night. A child has been possessed.
Some enemies aren’t willing to let the secrets of the past stay dead…
There are seven full Descent books, plus numerous novellas, and while it looks like this series wrapped up in 2013, there is also the chance to also read many books set in connected worlds.
