When a demon possesses a human, Maxine Kiss calls them zombies. Maxine is a hunter that takes the demons out of the humans and with the help of her own little demons. Her love, Grant Cooperon has an interest in demons also, but he thinks his music can help the demons to make better choices and be better people. Together they are trying to deal with the information that the prison veil that has held the demons for so long is falling.
***3 - Very interesting story, really enjoyed the characters. Too much happened in this story, I was easily confused by the twists and turns. I wanted more explanation to a lot of the things that happened. I got that part of the problem Maxine was having was due to all the secrets being kept, but there just seemed to be too much kept as secret even from the reader. I believe this is going to be a series, I hope that there is more time spent in explanation and less in keeping the secrets so secret. Even after reading the short story (in ‘Wild Thing’ anthology which acts as a prequel), I still struggled to understand some of it, but it is such a creative idea with some great characters.
