review 1: This is a book that takes the supernatural and makes it seem natural. Bleak uses his connection to the otherworld to jump over cars, spy, shoot energy bullets.

I really liked this story. It seems like it could be a really good movie also!
Much better than Demons. Interesting universe, left me wanting more.
Not sure who recommended this book to me, but it was enjoyable.
Nothing at all special, no reason to finish it.
