Book Description

Nov. 30 2010 Black London (Book 3)

Witch hunts are on the rise and supernatural turf wars are reaching a boiling point. Then, just when it seems life couldn’t get any worse for Pete, Jack reappears—but he’s no longer the man she’s always known. Hell has changed him forever. And he’s brought back with him a whole world of trouble…

A cabal of necromancers are using ancient, unspeakable magic to turn the tide of war in their favor. Then, as the city is about to sink into chaos, Pete receives a chilling directive: To end the war, you must kill the crow-mage. Beset from all sides, Pete finds herself turning to an unholy source for help…even if doing so could destroy Black London—and life as she knew it—once and for all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed but still a fan Jan. 28 2011
By stargirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved the first two books in the Black London series, so I eagerly awaited Bone Gods. I saved it for vacation, hoarding it until I had stretches of time where I could read uninterrupted. I give Ms. Kittredge credit for keeping the Black a creepy and mysterious place, and I applaud her use of dialect and slang, but I was really put off by the two main characters, especially Pete. In the other books, she held her own against Jack and was a credible character, tough, hostile, but shrewd. In Bone Gods, she is a caricature of her former self, and she comes across as ignorant, self-serving and not at all believable. She spent most of the book hitting things without thinking the situation through. It doesn't help that the author reminds us every other page that Pete is a petite woman, that her magic of being a Weir was just to be used by someone else. I think that is the opposite of what the author intended, but that's the way it appeared to me. Jack's character is understandably muted, having just spend time in Hell, but geez, it would have been nice to know a little of the anguish he carried around, instead of being reminded that he had "flat eyes".

I think the book has merit, and the story line was great, if a bit undeveloped with lots of loose ends hanging about, but I wish the characters were less objectionable and self-involved. Pete's vacillation from sleeping with Jack (along with a heavy touch of hero worship) to hitting and cursing him became tiresome very soon after Jack returns.

I also thought the story line with Pete's mom was completely unnecessary and had no relation to the rest of the story. She didn't add anything to the story at all, and breezed in and out without any closure or explanation as to why she was there. It was really jarring and made a mess of the plot. We could have been introduced to Morningstar without using Pete's mom as a tool.

If there is a fourth book in the series, I hope we continue to learn about the Black, who the Green Man really is, and that Pete becomes more like Pete. Of course Jack is damaged forever, but it would be interesting to see how he manages now that he isn't under Morrigan's control. I'll probably read the book, as Ms. Kittredge does an amazing job building worlds and characters, usually.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wild Ride Dec 2 2010
By UrbanFantasyGuy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'll start out by saying that while I loved the first two books in this series and have been eagerly awaiting Bone Gods, I have been waiting for the series to make its mark and stand out from others in the genre. Bone Gods picks up not long after Demon Bound ends. Pete is still grieving the loss of Jack to the demon Belial when her old partner at the police department asks for her help on a mysterious killing in the British Museum. One thing leads to another and Pete is dragged back into the strange world of the Black and encounters old friends and enemies. Jack Winter, the crude, deeply flawed mage with a heart of gold is easily the best male protagonist in the Urban Fantasy genre. Combined with our female protagonist Pete Caldecott, who will not back from anything or anyone and you're in for a wild ride. Filled with great twists and the signature dark humor of the series, it definitely cemented Black London as one of the best Urban Fantasy series around. If you even remotely liked the other books in the series, read this one now and you'll be hooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars exhilarating urban fantasy Dec 4 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Black London is a dangerous place to reside as witches, mages and necromancers fight each other for control with no regard for collateral damage. Adding to the deadly chaos is the deity civil war and the revival of the lethal order of the Malleus who stalk witches with deadly intent.

Trying to retain order are detectives like Pete Caldecott. A Weir she misses her mentor former punk rocker Jack Winter, who took her under his wings when she was sixteen before he apparently died (see Street Magic). When Pete found Jack, she was euphoric. After drying out from his addiction, Jack was turned into a demon so he fled to hell to keep himself from harming Pete (see Demon Bound). Now Jack is back for the third time in Pete's life as the Commander in Chief of an army of hell's most odious horde with plans to dominate the world. Pete must assassinate her hero in order to save Black London and the world or else.

This strange but exhilarating Black London urban fantasy (see the anthology Huntress, for a Winter dark novella) takes a third major spin in the Jack-Pete relationship; which gives new meaning to dysfunctional. Although there is an initial déjà vu all over again feel, the twisted fast-paced story line holds reader attention; as Pete is left with the choice of saving the world by killing her mentor-hero. Readers will relish the tale of the heroine's dilemma as she knows what she must do, but fears she will not be able to figuratively squeeze the trigger as the thought of patricide makes her ill.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent writing May 21 2012
By Under The Covers Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Bone Gods
Reviewed by Suzanne and posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

Jack has gone, dragged into Hell, and Pete is left to cope and fend for herself in the Black, the underground world of magic where the things you dream of in nightmares roam freely waiting to shred you to pieces. Pete can feel something coming in the Black, and when she is called to look at a dead man with unusual and unsettling carvings in his chest things get from bad to worse. Then Jack comes back, or has he....

What I like most about these books is that they are unpredictable, I never quite know what is going to happen, and this book proved no different. In the world of the Black there is no real Right and Wrong, just what you can live with, and what you can get way with, nothing is cut and dried. Jack is a great example of this, you know that he isn't really a good person and you know he definitely isn't good for Pete and this book underlines that; however, you can't help but like him and even understand him a little and maybe forgive him when you know you shouldn't.

Bone Gods was great, it was told through Pete's eyes again, and although I missed Jacks perspective, she was a good character to cling on to. The plot in this one brought about a direct confrontation between the Morrigan and Hecate through Jack and Pete this was filled with tension and you never really knew what either of them were going to do until they did it. The only thing I didn't really like was that the plot was quite slow, and it took a while for significant events to happen.

I really enjoyed this installment, her writing is excellent and the characters some of the most interetsing I have read and I can't wait for the next one, especially with how she has left it hanging!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first two July 28 2011
By Kathryn Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I still really like Jack and Pete and like the idea of the two lovers destined to lead the opposing sides of a war to end the world. But, I was disappointed in the ending. After everything that they went through in the previous book, it seems to me that both of them would be ready to stick their middle fingers to the supernatural "patrons" and fight to stay together to try and buck their destinies.
