Alf is roaring. Most people would mistake this for anger, but they don’t spend as much time around Demons as I do…
Cadence Hart has just six months on the job left. But six months might as well be a lifetime in the dangerous field of Deportations. Armed with a flaming sword and backed by Alf, her Demon partner, she’s the thin blue line between the Souls escaped from Hell and the living residents of the city.
Missing persons cases aren’t her usual line of work, but a young woman has disappeared in strange circumstances and Cadence is pulled off her regular duties to investigate. The girl’s parents think she’s possessed. Which is impossible. Only, from what evidence there is - it looks an awful lot like she’s possessed.
To solve the case, she’ll need the help of Matthew, a Soul expert. Matthew gained his expertise first hand – he’s been dead since before Cadence was born. But when their investigation unearths links to the devil-worshipping cult, New Dusk, they begin to realise that the case might be more than even they can handle.
New Dawn is a fun, fast paced book, that I could not put down. It had great writing, and a interesting plot. It has a great balance between action and mystery as well supernatural elements. The idea that souls have escaped hell to cause havoc was great.
Cadence is strong, sarcastic and awkward main character. Determined on returning the souls to hell, teams up with soul Matthew. While they shouldn't work well together, they end up making a amazing team. The two balance each other out and have the talents needed to discover what happened with the missing girls.
It took an unexpected turn, and end up finishing with a great ending. While it left me with a few questions, it seemed to resolve the immediate issue but leaves enough to get me excited for the rest of the series. Overall it is a to an amazing start to this series, and I am excited to read the next book if this series.
In the end I gave this book 4.5/5.
