Book Blurb

Atlanta: it's the promised city for the off-worlders, foreigners from the alternate dimensions of heaven-like Elysia and hell-like Charbydon. Some bring good works and miracles. And some bring unimaginable evil....

Charlie Madigan is a divorced mother of one, and a kick-ass cop trained to take down the toughest human and off-world criminals. She's recently returned from the dead after a brutal attack, an unexplained revival that has left her plagued by ruthless nightmares and random outbursts of strength that make doing her job for Atlanta P.D.'s Integration Task Force even harder. Since the Revelation, the criminal element in Underground Atlanta has grown, leaving Charlie and her partner Hank to keep the chaos to a dull roar. But now an insidious new danger is descending on her city with terrifying speed, threatening innocent lives: a deadly, off-world narcotic known as ash. Charlie is determined to uncover the source of ash before it targets another victim — but can she protect those she loves from a force more powerful than heaven and hell combined?

My Thoughts

The main character is Charlie Madigan, She works in the police department.. It's based in Atlanta, it never says what year exactly but seemed future Atlanta to me. There were other worlds that had been discovered and as a result of the different worlds inhabitants moving to Earth they had created "ITF" (Integration Task Force), which is the department that she works for.

I really enjoyed it. It is light on the police procedure, which there is no telling if the same is true for coming books. It has all the workings of a series that i will enjoy reading. Right from the beginning her family and friends are threatened and the world is at risk.. Great suspense and action.
