THE DEPARTED HAVE ARRIVED.
 
The world is not the way it was. The dead have risen, and the living are under attack. The powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for banishing the wicked dead. But Chess is keeping a dark secret: She owes a lot of money to a murderous drug lord named Bump, who wants immediate payback in the form of a dangerous job that involves black magic, human sacrifice, a nefarious demonic creature, and enough wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust for a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is really worth it. Hell, yeah.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 05, 2010 – In this dark futuristic urban fantasy series launch, Kane (Demon Possessed) blurs the boundaries between the living and the dead. Chess Putnam works for the world-ruling Church of Real Truth, debunking false claims of hauntings and banishing the occasional real ghost. When a powerful drug dealer calls on her services to erase her debt to him, Chess finds herself investigating an abandoned airfield, a horrible human sacrifice, an ominous apparition, and a conspiracy against the church itself. Making matters worse are her persistent drug habit, a cursed unhealing wound, and her fondness for extremely dangerous men. What starts out as a promising concept soon deteriorates into a murky mess of ambiguous characters and grim dangers. Chess is too broken to be sympathetic and too stoned to be coherent, and though it's atmospheric and well written, her story simply lacks heart.

Customer Reviews

First in great trilogy

Exciting action, believable and well developed alternate universe, really liked the main character who is very humanly flawed. A bit dark for moments, which I liked, and balanced well with action. Lots of magic. A bit scary which made it better.

Entertaining

Dark, gritty storyline with several moments of suspense. I wish the characters could have been developed further...I felt ambivalent about each person.

Dark, gritty and wildly entertaining

This exceptional urban fantasy tale is dark and gritty and definitely not for everyone. The main character is an unapologetic addict who loyally works for a Big Brother like organization that has debunked religion in face of the Truth of magic and ghosts. Well-written, well-crafted, and, wildly entertaining, this is fast becoming one of my favorite UF series. I hope the sequel live up to the standard set by this novel.
