Sum It Up! Ms. Benedict has improved on her writing.

After escaping secret government cells and destroying a Miami landmark, Sylvie’s trying to lay low—something that gets easier when a magical force starts taking out her enemies. But these magical attacks are a risk to bystanders, and Sylvie can’t let that slide.   

When the war between the government and the magical world threatens the three people closest to her—her assistant, her sister, and her lover—Sylvie has no choice but to get involved with hidden powers bent on shaping the world to their liking. Now, with death and disaster on the horizon, even if Sylvie wins, things will never be the same... (Goodreads)
Today I find myself pondering the question, “How does one praise a book and not give the story away?”  I must confess up until now, I have been lukewarm about the series. There were times when I wanted to stop reading it altogether.  Then I read Lies & Omens and my faith was restored.
Ms. Benedict has improved on her writing with her flawless seaming of past and present.  Her character development grabs and holds you until the very last satisfying page. The fact she brought back some of the series favorite characters entices the reader to dive deeper in the story.  Even with the long and sometimes dull chapters, in the middle of the story, the pace picks up and slams you into the climatic ending. I was grateful that ms. Benedict tied up the loose ends from previous books.  I am not sure if the series is ending or going in a different direction. Either way, every Urban Fantasy fan should read this one book.
