I try to be organised and keep a list of books I want to get – usually, this has books from authors I already know or with lots of buzz online. However, I was looking at my list for May, and for some reason, this book is on it – Jes Battis‘s “Night Child” (excerpt here).
Tess Corday, Occult Special Investigator for Vancouver’s Mystical Crime Lab, is used to seeing dead vampires. But there’s nothing ordinary about this case. Not the lab results on the cause of death. Not the teenage girl living at the address found in the vamp’s pocket, who may well be in thrall to a demon. And certainly not Lucian Agrado, the necromancer who is liaison to the vampire community. Agrado is supposed to be part of the solution, but Tess suspects he might be part of the problem.
Soon she finds herself in the middle of a paranormal conspiracy that will change her life forever—and possibly end it.
It sounds cool and I will probably get it – but I’ve no idea where I came across it in the first place.
