Ms. Halzner keeps getting better!! Darklands is book four in the Deadtown series involving demon slayer Victory "Vicky" Vaughn. I have read the series from the first book and I just keep coming back for more. First, Vicky is such a "real" character in dealing with the issues she is constantly working on. She has a hot werewolf boyfriend who would do anything for her, yet she still doubts herself. She loves her family very much, yet fights with them like crazy. Ms. Holzner does a fantastic job of making Vicky real and kick ass at the same time. I enjoyed Darklands because it explored her relationship with Kane, and I was very happy with the outcome at the end. Pryce is back and already up to no good. It doesn't take Vicky long to come up with a plan to get rid of him once and for all, no matter what. Overall, another great installment to a very addictive urban fantasy series!!
Vicky Vaughn is loosing clients! When all of the demons start to disappear she decides to find out why. It turns out her psychotic cousin Pryce is up to no good. He's determined to get the shadow demon half, destroyed by Vicky, back so he can continue on his quest to conquer all of the realms. His goal is to bring about death and destruction the likes of which have never been seen before. To stop him she will have to make incredible sacrifices as she travels to the realm of the dead with no guarantee of making it back alive.

Book 4: Darklands
They call it Deadtown: the city’s quarantined section for its inhuman and undead residents. Most humans stay far from its border—but Victory Vaughn, Boston’s only professional demon slayer, isn’t exactly human…
Boston’s demons have been disappearing, and Vicky’s clients are canceling left and right. While fewer demons might seem like a good thing, Vicky suspects foul play. A missing Celtic cauldron from Harvard’s Peabody museum leads her to an unwelcome conclusion: Pryce, her demi-demon cousin and bitter enemy, is trying to regain his full powers.
But Pryce isn’t alone. He’s conjured another, darker villain from Vicky’s past. To stop them from destroying everything she loves, she’ll have to face her own worst fear—in the realm of the dead itself.
