When the gods come calling, you don’t get to say no.
Patrick Collins is three years into a career as a special agent for the Supernatural Operations Agency when the gods come calling to collect a soul debt he owes them. An immortal has gone missing in New York City and bodies are showing up in the wake of demon-led ritual killings that Patrick recognizes all too easily from his nightmares.
Unable to walk away, Patrick finds himself once again facing off against mercenary magic users belonging to the Dominion Sect. Standing his ground alone has never been a winning option in Patrick’s experience, but it’s been years since he’s had a partner he could trust.
Looking for allies in all the wrong places, Patrick discovers the Dominion Sect’s next target is the same werewolf the Fates themselves have thrown into his path. Patrick has been inexplicably attracted to the man from their first meeting, but desire has no place in war. That doesn’t stop Patrick from wanting what he shouldn’t have. Jonothon de Vere is gorgeous, dangerous, and nothing but trouble—to the case, to the fight against every hell, and ultimately, to Patrick’s heart and soul.
In the end, all debts must be paid, and Patrick can only do what he does best—cheat death.
What a phenomenal and mind blowing book that takes you on a journey that will leave you rivetingly spell-bound…!!
A ferry of Gold & Bones is the first book in the new Urban Fantasy series. Being a lover of the genre this book pushed all my right buttons. The star of this book is hands down the story and the world the story is set in. The author has done a tremendous job in building a world that is fascinating and completely mind-blowing. I loved the way, myths and legends have been used by the author as elements in this story. The characters are all etched out in a way that you couldn’t help fall for each and every single one of them. I loved, loved, loved and loved Patrick and Jono and all the other secondary characters. Even though there is romance in the series the book is about the characters and the world they are in, their journey and the suspense element. This book is an example of a perfect urban fantasy book and you are guaranteed to love it…!!
I loved this book…!!! This book is simply at par with all the other urban fantasy series out there. I loved that there is action, romance, friendship, brotherhood, bonding among characters, heart-in-throat moments and an unforgettable story. I just cannot wait for the next book in the series. Highly, highly Recommended.
