Night Shift review

Night Shift - Lilith Saintcrow

Good intro to the character, good setting, good antagonists, no vampires. That's the first thing my housemate said when I recommended this book - "there aren't any vampires in this, are there?" It's clearly a tired genre but thanfully Saintcrow avoids vamps and uses demons instead, and to really good effect too. Saintcrow has made Jill Kismet into maybe too much of a supernatural Mary-Sue, but I forgive her because the story and characters are good.
