Overview
"Madeline Black is an Agent of death, meaning she escorts the souls of people who have died to the afterlife. Of course, not everyone is happy to see her... "
If obstinate dead people were all that Maddy had to worry about, life would be much easier. But the best-laid plans of Agents and fallen angels often go awry. Deaths are occurring contrary to the natural order, Maddy's being stalked by foes inside and outside of her family, and her two loves-her bodyguard, Gabriel, and her doughnut-loving gargoyle, Beezle-have disappeared. But because Maddy is Lucifer's granddaughter, things are expected of her, things like delicate diplomatic missions to other realms.

Henry stalls out in the urban fantasy sequel to 2010's Black Wings. Maddy Black, an agent of death, is adjusting to having a heartstone rather than a heart, and her boss, JB, seems to have mellowed a little. Otherwise, life goes on as it has—she's broke, her (unpaid) job is frustrating, and she has a knack for discovering gruesome dismemberments. This time the victim's a werewolf whose murder is at first glance merely troubling. The subsequent disappearance of Gabriel, Maddy's bodyguard, and Beezle, her gargoyle companion, may be connected to the killing, the people trying to assassinate Maddy, or both. In the middle of everything, Lucifer commands Maddy to be his ambassador to the faerie court, the previous ambassador having been beheaded. The pace is breathless, but those who hoped for development in the characters or Henry's imaginative world will be disappointed. (Aug.)
