I was eagerly awaiting Killing Rites. This series is on my must read list.
And finally...readers will learn why, at least a little bit, this series is titled The Black Sun's Daughter. I always wondered why, The Black Sun's Daughter has never been mentioned in any of the previous books- but in book 4- it's there.
I was a little disappointed that this book was so different yet at the same time I understand the reason behind it- that for the series and Jayne to move forward it had to be different therefore in the end I wasn't really disappointed by the difference I just had to adjust to it.
Book four in The Black Sun's Daughter has a completely different feel to it that the other books. Where the other books were full of action and motion this book was filled with internal thoughts and contemplation along with discoveries and inner turmoil that Jayne has to work through.
While not an exciting thrill ride like the previous books, Killing Rites will take you deeper into this world, deeper in Jayne's psyche, while intensifying the mystery that surrounds her.
Solid, intense, mysterious, dark and emotional Killing Rites will answer some questions and create many more thus sucking you deeper into this complex world of The Black Sun's daughter.
Jayne Heller has discovered the source of her uncanny powers: something else is living inside her body. She's possessed. Of all her companions, she can only bring herself to confide in Ex, the former priest. They seek help from his old teacher and the circle of friends he left behind, hoping to cleanse Jayn before the parasite in her becomes too powerful.
Ex's history and a new enemy combine to leave Jayne alone and on the run. Her friends, thinking that the rider with her has taken the reins, try to hunt her down, unaware of the danger they're putting her in. Jayne must defeat the weight of the past and the murderous intent of another rider, and her only allies are a rogue vampire she once helped free and the nameless thing hiding inside her skin.
