Description:

When the gods come calling, you don’t get to say no.

Patrick Collins is three years into a career as a special agent for the Supernatural Operations Agency when the gods come calling to collect a soul debt he owes them. An immortal has gone missing in New York City and bodies are showing up in the wake of demon-led ritual killings that Patrick recognizes all too easily from his nightmares.

Unable to walk away, Patrick finds himself once again facing off against mercenary magic users belonging to the Dominion Sect. Standing his ground alone has never been a winning option in Patrick’s experience, but it’s been years since he’s had a partner he could trust.

Looking for allies in all the wrong places, Patrick discovers the Dominion Sect’s next target is the same werewolf the Fates themselves have thrown into his path. Patrick has been inexplicably attracted to the man from their first meeting, but desire has no place in war. That doesn’t stop Patrick from wanting what he shouldn’t have. Jonothon de Vere is gorgeous, dangerous, and nothing but trouble—to the case, to the fight against every hell, and ultimately, to Patrick’s heart and soul.

In the end, all debts must be paid, and Patrick can only do what he does best—cheat death.

Review:

I got this as a freebie for my Kindle a while ago and decided to read it in a change from the run of unrequited love contemporary romances I've read lately.

It starts with Patrick at the airport getting ready to board a plane to Maui when he gets a call from his boss, telling him he's needed in New York where a string of supernatural murders have her suspecting that someone from their past is resurfacing. Patrick ends up making allies in the city's werecreature pack who are close to the city's Seer, as well as one God-pack werecreature, Jono, who Patrick feels an instant attraction to.

It's hard to go into too many details with this without spoiling it and also because it feels very complicated plot-wise. We learn things slowly about Patrick and his history with hell and the Gods. It seemed so easy at the beginning but the more I read, the more complicated it all seemed.

I did like most of the people that turned up as back-up for Patrick for the final showdown. The werecreatures, the vampires, some of the Gods, his old friends...I did enjoy that bit a lot Even that phonecall from his old army pals towards the end had me smiling. He seems to attract friends from all over. I also liked the romance aspect, though that bit is not the main plot for this series.

I'm not sure if I'll continue the series, though.
