Demons Are Real. Riley Parra Plans to Give Them Hell.
No Man’s Land isn’t the kind of place you go after dark, even if you have a badge. But Detective Riley Parra was born there, and she refuses to surrender it to the drug dealers, killers and criminals who have made it there home. The case of a body stuffed into a drainage pipe leads her to discover that there is far more at stake than she ever imagined. Reeling from the knowledge that angels and demons are at war in her city, Riley finds herself thrust into the role of champion for Heaven. Determined to stop the demons and be more than just a pawn for the angels, Riley does the only thing she knows how to do: she fights.
This is one of the most interesting, exciting and captivating books I have read in a long time. The readers interest is captivated from the very beginning. The main characters are fascinating and with the introduction of Demons and Angels the book just goes from strength to strength.
Just as you begin to question what is happening, is it real? Is it imaginary? Mr Cannon answers your question in the most interesting and dramatic way.
The book was also full of humour and superb one liners, I particularly liked the line comparing Shakespeare as “pop culture.”
I also like the way the book was presented, almost like a set of novels, each with a beginning and an end, but each one leaving you wanting to read the following one.
The end was as dramatic as it was unpredictable. I hope Mr Cannon is planning further books in this series.
A truly exceptional read.
