Where did it come from? Many thanks to Dorothy at Pump up Your Book for sending me a copy of this book to read.
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 29 July 2013
Why do I have it? I like paranormal mysteries and had read and enjoyed Grim by the same author in the past. 

As more dark secrets come to light, the battle for souls pushes the town of Prairieville, Illinois to the brink of war in both the living and supernatural realms. When Jeff Wrage swears a blood oath to Abaddon, the supernatural avenger of murder victims, in order to hunt the crooked cop who butchered his wife, their pact throws the supernatural realm into chaos. Seeing the death of Cyrus Black as his opportunity to restore the Marino family stronghold over the Prairieville organized crime scene and thus install himself as mob kingpin, Orlando Marino unleashes a plague which turns its victims into mindless followers. Meanwhile, Cyrus' heir is busy rooting out a traitor in his ranks, and so is unable to stop the coming turf war in the realm of man.     

The fate of all rests with Homicide Detective Anna Duke, who steps into the shoes of her mentor while coming to terms with unrequited love. As she tries to clear the fallen hero's name, she takes on a case where corpses go missing and her new partner is reported dead. She ultimately learns the truth about her identity, and uncovers a trail of secrets that leads her to question her tragic past.

I have to say that, as with the first book in the Sons of Darkness Series, the plot is just as gritty and action-packed in Wrage. I enjoyed reading this book and was drawn into the story from the first page. I give Wrage a definite A! and can't wait to read the next book in the series.

A! - (90-95%)  

May you read well and often
