Marjorie M. Liu’s ability to create a story with amazing characters and an action-packed plot is boundless. The Mortal Bone is her latest in her urban fantasy novels that centers on Maxine Kiss, Demon Hunter, and all around butt-kicker of the bad guys invading the world. Maxine is my favorite character of Ms. Liu’s because with this character you get into the mind and heart of a woman that accepts her destiny and fights so passionately for those she calls family. Maxine’s spirit is as tough as the little demons she carries on her body every day. The Mortal Bone delivers humor, attitude, death, and enlightenment into a new chapter in Maxine’s life. The demons imprisoned by her body are now free which has changed her and them--leaving the future uncertain for them all. I love the characters, the ongoing relationships, and the thrilling plot found in this latest Hunter Kiss novel and I hope there are more stories to come soon. Fabulous storytelling by Ms. Liu and The Mortal Bone is a must read for followers of this series. Enjoy!
When the bond Maxine Kiss shares with the demons tattooed on her skin is deliberately severed, the demon hunter is left vulnerable and unprotected. For the first time in ten thousand years, the demons have a taste of freedom. And as the little demons grow more violent and unpredictable, Maxine starts to fear they will lose their minds without her. Reuniting won't be easy, since a greater temptation waits for these hellions: a chance to return to their lives as Reaper Kings, and unleash hell on Earth.
