This is another epic fantasy in a modern setting. A fiction where vampires and wizards can be killed by bullets but magic and spells seem the preferred choice in action. It's a story about faerie godmothers with magical powers, knights, retired angels, archangels.... the writer weaves everything imaginable into this book. Very subtle with many twists.
This latest sequel starts with Harry being told by his former love (now half vampire) that he has a child (Maggie). Maggie was kidnapped by the King of the Red Court to be sacrificed in a ritual; a blood curse that will kill all those related to Maggie. That of course meant, Harry would die too. The quest for Maggie was fraught with battles of the supernatural. The story is full of action.... you don't get bored cos something would turned up just as you think things are slowing down.
But a few things I noted... despite having a super duper faerie godmother, Harry realized that brains still play the more important role. There're quite a few other insights which I thought were quite nice but just cannot seem to put them into my own words here.
Personally I'd have reservations about letting my younger kids read this. Too many 'mixes' in the novel; compromise between good and evil, too much gray.
