What could possibly go wrong when what seems like a dead body found on a beach turns out to be alive? Especially when it is, in actuality, a demon?
Quite a lot - at least in Tess's world.
I enjoyed having another glimpse into the OSI world and how the characters interact with each other and the possible glimpse into Tess's past.
Ru (as the found demon is called) may be one of my favorite characters from this novel. This may be due to the old/young polarity he displays. In human terms, he looks young - and that is also displayed with his unfamiliarity with (at the beginning) some human type things - and he is young by demon standards (if I recall correctly). On the other hand, he has lived a relatively (by human standards) long time and displays that longevity in observations that would be mature for his age in human terms.
This is a good read and I look forward to reading more OSI books in the future.
A dead body on the beach turns out to be a live demon on the run from some of the nastiest bounty hunters in this dimension-or the next. Protecting one demon from another, Tess gets wrapped up in a case that's as dangerous as it is mind-boggling, especially when it begins to involve her own past.
