Necromancer Eric Carter's problems keep getting bigger.
Bad enough he's the unwilling husband to the patron saint of death, Santa Muerte, but now her ex, the Aztec King of the dead, Mictlantecuhtli has come back and it turns out that Carter and he are swapping places.
As Mictlantecuhtli breaks loose of his prison of jade Carter is slowly turning to stone.
To make matters worse both gods are trying to get Carter to assassinate the other, but only one of them can be telling him the truth. And whichever god is left standing Carter's likely to suffer the consequences.
Carter's solution? Kill them both.
If he wants to get out of this situation with his soul intact he'll have to go to Mictlan, the Aztec land of the dead, and take down a couple of death gods while facing down the worst the place has to offer him: his own sins.
This is the first book I've read by the author but it was fantastic. Number three in the Eric Carter series I was really impressed with the cast, the world and everything that Blackmoore created.
I'm actually really antsy to read the previous books in this series because I want to know everything.
There is so much going on, so much packed into this book that its hard to take it all in.
I know I'm missing a large chunk of what took place in the previous installments but it was easy enough to follow without having done so and to my giddy pleasure there was enough here to completely enthrall me.
I think Blackmoore will be a new favorite. I can't wait to read more.
