In a job like this, one mistake can cost you everything.
As a Shadowchaser, Kira Solomon has been trained to serve the Light, dispatch the Fallen, and prevent the spread of chaos. Its a deadly job, and Kira knows the horror of spilling innocent blood. But now she has a new role, as the Hand of Maat, the Egyptian Goddess of Truth and Order, and an assignment that might just redeem her.
A fellow Shadowchaser has gone missing, and so has a unique artifact imbued with astonishing magic. Unless the Vessel of Nun is returned, it will cause destruction beyond anything the modern world has seen. Kiras got a team at her back, including Khefar, a near-immortal Nubian warrior whos already died for her once. But as complicated as her feelings for him are, they're nothing compared to the difficulties of the task she faces. And the only way to defeat the enemy is to trust in a power she can barely control, and put her life and her soul on the line.
What members say
I read the first book in this series and made comment on the narrator's dismal delivery. Unfortunately she has definitely not improved and I wish I hadn't gone back for a second look. I repeat my original comments regarding the narration.
The narration is deplorable and was destracting from the tale. To say Allyson Johnson has no gift for accents is being polite. Her monotone delivery made what maybe a good story boring.
I kept waiting for the action, mystery, intrigue to start but this book is the last I will be reading in this series. Whether it was the narrator and her terrible British accents or whether the storyline was dull it is hard to say.
