A thrilling new occult investigation from Justin Gustainis, creator of the urban fantasy sleuths Quincy Morris, great-grandson of Dracula’s killer, and his partner, white witch Libby Chastain.
Houses of worship are burning all across the U.S., churches, synagogues and mosques alike. Usually while the places are full of people. The fires are initially dismissed as unconnected, random acts of violence, until Morris – freshly released from jail after their last case – and Chastain track down the terrible meaning behind the destruction, and the dark cause the arsonists seek to serve. A race against time ensues, to stop a ritual that will cause the deaths of hundreds... and bring about the end of the world.
My Review :
I am a huge fan of Justin Gustainis and have read and loved all of his books so far. He is a great writer and he always manages to keep me hooked on the story from beginning to end. With so much detail and a surperb amount of knowledge weaved into his books I can't help but be pulled into the story. I can't get enough of his books and was surprised to find out that I managed to miss this fourth part in the Morris and Chastain Investigations series. It seems the book was released on Kindle in December but now both this book and book five, Midnight at the Oasis, are being released this month. Lucky fans!
So what do Libby & Quincey get involved with this time? Something that could mean the end of the world! The suspense is addictive and the story exciting. There wasn't anything I would have changed about this one. Actually it was even better because the new characters that were introduced in the last book also made an appearance in this one. Making it even better. It was nice to have some demons helping out!
I don't want to talk too much about the plot because this is a book you have to read and enjoy without any spoilers. However I can say that this is Paranormal Urban Fantasy at its best. PLaying with Fire is filled to the brim with magic, supernaturals and wit. Justin's books are sometimes just too good to be true and he is my favourite male writer in the genre.
Highly recommend trying this series if you haven't! It is edgy, grown-up and well thought out. If you are already a Libby & Quincey fan then I suggest getting hold of this one asap! You won't regret it!
