From New York Times bestselling author Marjorie M. Liu comes the first in a stunning new urban fantasy series.

By day, her tattoos are her armor. By night, they unwind from her body to take on forms of their own. Demons of the flesh, turned into flesh. This is the only family demon hunter Maxine Kiss has ever known. The only way to live—and the very way she’ll die. For one day, her demons will abandon her for her daughter to ensure their own survival—leaving Maxine helpless against her enemies. 

But such is the way of Earth’s last protector—the only one standing between humanity and the demons breaking out from behind the prison veils. It is a life lacking in love, reveling in death, until one moment—and one man—changes everything.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanna | 2/15/2014

    " So far I am enjoying this book. I love trashy supernatural/mystery books. This doesn't necessarily mean I love bad writing although the two are often assumed to be one and the same. Marjorie Liu takes on this genre with creativity and a strong sense of her characters. I am really enjoying it. Great read after a long day of forcing at-risk teenagers to talk about human rights. "

    " imaginative, unique, and really well written "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex | 1/2/2014

    " This book was really hard to get through because of the writing. The never ending sentence fragments drove me nuts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 1/1/2014

    " I really liked this book. She is the last of her 'kind'. Takes place in Seattle, mostly. Lots of other worldly stuff going on demons and such but no so confusing that you can't follow the story. I look forward to the 2nd book. "

    " Gotta love those tattoos... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 12/4/2013

    " Ok - might try book 2 sometime but didn't create a strong impression of any kind. In it's favour there wasn't anything that I really hated - it was just lack a spark. More UF than PR. I suppose I liked the idea but wasn't grabbed enough by the central character or style of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 11/18/2013

    " I liked the concept however it disappointed me. In the future, I might give the rest of the series a go but like I stated before -- just not what I hoped for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Dewitt | 11/15/2013

    " I read book 4 first, and thoroughly enjoyed it, So I picked up books 1-3, and decided to give those a shot. I was surprised that book one started off kinda slow, but the intensity and action built up quite nicely. Can't wait to start book 2. "

    " interesting characters. will read more of this series. "

    " Excellent start to a new series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 12/9/2012

    " Didn't like this series much at all. Maybe a little too dark and hard to follow for my taste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendroz | 4/28/2012

    " An entertaining mystery by a women who has demons living on her skin as tattoos during the day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/18/2012

    " What an awesome read! Original urban fantasy series with great characters and a strong heroine. Liu does a great job of showing her strength without resorting to snarky comebacks and cocked hips - wonderfully refreshing. Looking forward to book 2 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindig | 10/16/2011

    " Impressive. Not an easy read but it kept pulling me on, and I'm glad it did. This book was my introduction to Liu and I've since read others. A very adult writer, especially in contrast to so many teen-er novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Jo | 4/19/2011

    " A little more in-depth and complicated than some of the urban fantasy I've read. I had to reread bits at times. But I actually enjoyed the complexities. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loretta | 2/23/2011

    " WOW!!! MML has an amazing talent for stories! I still feel like I am missing something about Maxine, and I still have loads of questions, but man! I am SOOOO entertained! Can't wait to get my hands on the next volume of the series!

    A definite fabulous read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hanneke | 2/7/2011

    " I'm not sure, three of four stars. Liked it but found it a bit confusing from time to time. Somehow reminded me of the Lila Black series by Justina Robson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larenda | 1/19/2011

    " A little wordy at times, but I really liked the characters and the plot. The world Liu creates is nowhere near black and white, and I think she does a great job of explore the "grey" areas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/15/2011

    " Loved it the second time, too. Written like poetry, fluid and flowing language. "
