A Cinfully Wonderful Review ~ The Better Part of Darkness by Kelly Gay

Jan 29, 2013

Book 1
Charlie Madigan Series

Atlanta: it's the promised city for the off-worlders, foreigners from the alternate dimensions of heaven-like Elysia and hell-like Charbydon. Some bring good works and miracles.
And some bring unimaginable evil....

Charlie Madigan is a divorced mother of one, and a kick-ass cop trained to take down the toughest human and off-world criminals. She's recently returned from the dead after a brutal attack, an unexplained revival that has left her plagued by ruthless nightmares and random outbursts of strength that make doing her job for Atlanta P.D.'s Integration Task Force even harder. Since the Revelation, the criminal element in Underground Atlanta has grown, leaving Charlie and her partner Hank to keep the chaos to a dull roar. But now an insidious new danger is descending on her city with terrifying speed, threatening innocent lives: a deadly, off-world narcotic known as ash. Charlie is determined to uncover the source of ash before it targets another victim -- but can she protect those she loves from a force more powerful than heaven and hell combined?

        Wow, a kick-ass heroine...Mom,Detective/and something that keeps her in nightmare state! Charlie Madigan died...two hours after she died a miraculous injection of alien DNA brought her back...but as what. Charlie did not ask to be brought back, and as time progresses it seems that Charlie has some new abilities: like spontaneous healing, able project power at an enemy and able to telepathically speak with her daughter. As an investigation leads her into the search for a new drug on the street, Ash, Charlie meets a evil man...the one who has the lead role in her terrifying nightmares. With everything going wrong in her life, Charlie must rely on powers she's not even aware of how to call them when she needs them. I came to care for Charlie and her darling little Emma. I have the next three in this series sitting on my bookcase and a big grin on my face!
