Review: Black Howl - Christina Henry


Something is wrong with the souls of Chicago's dead. Ghosts are walking the streets, and Agent of Death
Madeline Black's exasperating boss wants her to figure out why. And while work is bad enough, Maddy has a plethora of personal problems too. Now that Gabriel has been assigned as her thrall, their relationship has hit an impasse. At least her sleazy ex-fiance Nathaniel is out of the picture--or so she thinks...

My thoughts:
The best book in the series to far, and it was also completely evil! By Lucifer it was so evil.

In this one ghosts are behaving strange, Gabriel is Maddy's thrall and neither one is happy. Our favorite gargoyle wants donuts. Wolves are missing and as always the courts of the fallen are conspiring. And Maddy is in the middle of it all.

Maddy is somewhat of a klutz, she will fall into the worst situation and still mouth off. I have to love her. Yes she is stupid in a way, but I like her. The series is not Mercy awesome. Instead it's just truly enjoyable because the story keeps me wanting more all the time. It made it hard for me to put it down. Sure it's simple at times, but when it makes me want more it makes me want more.

And the end, I mentioned it in the beginning, but it was just so evil! Not cliffie evil (cos it was that too), but yes Lucifer evil. Now I need more cos I can guess what Lucifer wants now.

Conclusion:
Fun!

Well, this sounds like a really good book and an even better series. I don't really read these kind of paranormal books, but I might give it a try sometime

EEeeevilll! You know you have gotten me curious. Oh and I hate the cliffies but I still need to start at the first anyway. Yes, I said from the beginning... ;)

Anna said...

Glad you're enjoying the series. I'm sure all the evil made it more enjoyable. ;)

Blodeuedd said...

I have been on a UG reading spree. I just can't stop!

Blodeuedd said...

I do love my UF books :) I just like the kick-ass action, and the hint of romance, or more

Blodeuedd said...

The cliffie was...she is so evil, but then she was evil in the book too and oh I just wanna tell you

Blodeuedd said...

Haha, well the evil is very entertaining here

Mel said...

You seem to find series that I am collecting the books but have yet to start reading!!

Blodeuedd said...

When I read one I always want the rest, that is how I roll

Felicia the Geeky Blogger said...

Lucifer is supposed to be evil---especially when he is at his worst!

This does sound like a delightfully good read :)

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Oh damn. You would have to start the review with that. I so need this series!! :D Thank you!

Blodeuedd said...

I do like him in this book, he is an ass, an evil one. But the plans he has, one must admire them

Blodeuedd said...

I am evil, I admit, Lucifer made me write that

Anachronist said...

I am not sure I want to start another Lu-themed series...

Carole Rae said...

Leave it to Chicago's dead to create issues. hahahaha. Great review B! Poor Maddy seems to have her hands full

Jenny said...

I keep reading such great things about this series, so glad to know this one is the best yet. I love when a series gets better as it goes:)

Blodeuedd said...

No? Eh, I like him and he keeps in the background

Blodeuedd said...

She sure has, and I do wonder how she will deal in the next book

Blodeuedd said...

I hope it will get even better in the next :D But then the author was so evil in this book so that makes me wonder too. Yup evil as hell

Heidi@Rainy Day Ramblings said...

I need to find some more good UF books. I am totally missing the genre and I was going through my review schedule and I don't have many coming up. This is one I need to look into ! It sounds great!

Blodeuedd said...

I have been going a bit UF crazy lately, but I got so many for xmas and my bday and I just wanted to read them all

Staci said...

It does look like it could be fun for sure!

Blodeuedd said...

I sure love my UF books

Darlene said...

This does sound like a fun series. I haven't heard of it before but now that I have I'll have to check out the first book.

Blodeuedd said...

Give it a go, easy UF :D

Aurian said...

I need to start reading this series, I do have the first book on my shelves (like so many others!).

Teddyree said...

haha Lucifer evil ... love it. I need to read this series!!

Blodeuedd said...

Yay, haha, yes I know the feeling

Blodeuedd said...

Yes who would have known ;)

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Hmm, I'm still not sold because this series reminds me too much of M.L.Hanover, but I'll try it at some point I hope.

Blodeuedd said...

I have not tried that series so I can't compare

Unknown said...

I am making a list of UF books series I need to read, and this one sounds perfect for me. I love fun series that keep me coming back for more, and as a total klutz, I'm sure I'll relate well to Maddy. :-) Thanks for sharing!
