Publisher’s Description:  Los Angeles is burning.

During one of the hottest summers the city has ever seen, someone is murdering mages with fires that burn when they shouldn’t, that don’t stop when they should. Necromancer Eric Carter is being framed for the killings and hunted by his own people.

To Carter, everything points to the god Quetzalcoatl coming after him, after he defied the mad wind god in the Aztec land of the dead. But too many things aren’t adding up, and Carter knows there’s more going on.

If he doesn’t figure out what it is and put a stop to it fast, Quetzalcoatl won’t just kill him, he’ll burn the whole damn city down with him.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

Wow.  This was an eventful book.  Hold on to your seat when you start, because it is a ride.  This a strictly urban fantasy with no romance, but considerable violence and cussing.  Spell slinging and danger are the by products.

I love Eric Carter books.  He flies by the seat of his pants but never seems to get dead.  He gets into some very tight spots, actually practically impossible spots, but somehow he always finds a way.  The thing about Eric Carter right now is that he is involved with some ancient gods and Aztec history.  I know neither so it was a tidgy difficult to follow, but he does recap to make it more understandable to people like me.

Eric has to employ a lot of his gut feelings in this story.  Who to trust and how to play a situation by knowing how certain kinds of people (greedy people) will respond.  He loses some of the population due to the gods and their lack of consideration of human life.  He feels every one of those lives expire.  He risks a lot to save who he can when he can, but he still beats himself up over it all.  He knows he has made bad choices, but often those choices came from no choice at all.

If you like necromancers (not the creepy kind), then Eric Carter would be a good series to start.  He grows a lot in the first couple of books and then when he takes off, he takes off like a rocket.

I give this book a solid 5 because it was edge of my seat, one sitting read.
