She’s the new head of the Underworld Detection Agency’s strangest division. What a nightmare…

Being a human immune to magic helped Sophie Lawson get promoted. It’s also made her a major, very reluctant player in a game that stretches beyond even the Underworld. Having handsome buttoned-down Englishman Will as her new guardian is one tempting blessing, especially since sexy fallen angel Alex is mysteriously MIA lately. But as a frightening number of demons start disappearing around the city, Sophie suspects that an Armageddon-level prophecy is about to become everyone’s nightmare. And her investigation is testing her bravery — and Will’s unexpected vulnerability — in ways neither could predict. Now Sophie and Will are fast running out of time as an unstoppable evil prepares to lay waste to demons and humans alike…

Sophie Lawson is back! Hannah Jayne does it again and this time Sophie gets deeply involved in a dangerous case. I really enjoy Jayne’s writing and her very dynamic characters that she has created, plus adding some humor in the mix makes it all that more entertaining.

Sophie is a rare “human” known as the Vessel and she even has her very own Guardian Will, whom protects her a lot. Luckily he’s around to watch over her because supernatural beings are being targeted and since the Angel Alex isn’t around to help she and Will get deep in some trouble trying to figure out what’s going on. Sophie I felt has grown up a little more in the novel, she’s not pinning over Alex as much because he’s on a mission of his own this time around. She concentrates more on how Supernatural beings are disappearing and being targeted by an unknown person, and she seems to be in the middle of it all. I like how she takes things into her own hands when know one else will listen, no matter how much she puts herself in danger.

Will, Sophie’s Guardian got a major role, which of course I loved! I feel he has a better connection with her and also has done a lot to keep her safe. He also is the only one that helps her with the case, Nina is too love struck with a writer and in wanting to write a novel of her own. So Will seems to be the only one here for Sophie and gets to steam it up with her as well.

Nina, Sophie’s BFF and vampire was actually not my favorite this time around. She was in a way rude to Sophie not understanding that her friend has been through a lot and is in the middle of something dangerous. She really only cared about this very stuck up writer, that doesn’t believe in the supernatural. I hope she can redeem herself in the next novel, but I do always love her off the wall fashionista humor.

In the end there is a cliffhanger and thank the gods there was an excerpt in the back for me to read or I would have been freaking out. But I’m so excited to say one of my favorite characters is back, not sure for how long though. Sophie has a lot to look forward to and I think Alex and Will are going to need to work together with her to stop the dangers that are coming.

Overall I really enjoyed this third installment, I can’t wait to see what happens next. Especially in the romance category since there is a bit of a love triangle. Though I’m Team Will at this point. The writing is great and Sophie is such a quirky and entertaining lead that I’m always excited to see what she does next. I highly recommend this Urban Fantasy series and everyone should start reading this asap!

This is an adult novel with humor, action and all the right stuff that everyone wants in the Urban Fantasy genre. Fans of authors Ann Aguirre and Jennifer Estep will be captivated by Hannah Jayne’s novel Under Suspicion.
