REVIEW – OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS BY KRISTI CHARISH


The wild second adventure for unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world—from the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish. For fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and the like.

Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl, international antiquities thief for hire, is settling into her new contract job for Vegas mogul Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon with a penchant for ancient, supernatural artifacts. And now he has his sights set on some treasures of the mysterious Syrian City of the Dead that are sitting in a recluse’s private collection.

There’s just one wrinkle. To stop the resurrection of an undead army that could wreak havoc on Los Angeles, Owl must break into a heavily guarded archaeological sight in one of the most volatile regions in the world. A detour through Libya and a run-in with Somali pirates sends the clock ticking hastily toward total paranormal disaster.

Meanwhile, Alexander and the Paris vampires have stopped stalking Owl’s apartment, but they have by no means forgotten their death grudge against her. To top everything off, Owl finds out the hard way that there is nothing heavenly about the City of Angels..

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS just gets better, and better. The characters and story line are very well-developed. Owl is in trouble again. The IAA is after her for stealing several artifacts, but there is one catch, she did not do it. Yes, she stole a few, but not the ones they are accusing her for. She escapes Egypt and is determined to find who is out there stealing artifact in her name. After careful research they trace it back to the city of the dead. Someone is stealing cursed artifacts and selling them. Now, Owl must return those artifacts. During one of her retrievals, she accidentally touches one of the artifacts and is cursed. Now the clock is ticking and she must find a way to lift the curse or die. Oh, and she has to stop the people stealing the artifacts also. I love this series!! It is like Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider all in one. I also love her cat Captain, he steals the show. If you have not picked up the first book in this series, I really urge you to do so. You will love it. I give OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS 5/5 STARS.
