Rating (5 stars)
This book is the first of a now 12 book series that takes the reader on quite a ride.
This series takes a unique twist and creative take on the classic private investigator role by sprinkling in imaginative landscapes, characters brimming with paranormal aspects, and plot lines littered with science fiction. There are even funny moments in this book where I found myself laughing at the moxie the main character displays throughout the entire book.
Each chapter envelops you into the world of the Nightside creating this alternate universe with vibrant characters abound. I found myself craving more from these characters as soon as I was finished reading the book.
As soon as I was done reading this book, I instantly gave it to my fiancé and made him read it.
Sure the book has a darker tone, but you find yourself loving the characters and hoping that they win/save the day and it kept me wanting more right up until the very end. I’m already on the 3rd book of the series and still loving it.

It might be fun to read about the Nightside but stay out of it. You never know what dark alley the Harrowing may be lurking.
