Erin Banks is a woman with an acid nature, a self-destructive streak, a bare minimum of morals and magical tattoos that boost her strength. When a demon approaches her with a deal, he offers her the one thing she won’t say no to: information on how her little brother disappeared when they were both children.

This was a short, fun read. It hits the ground running and doesn’t stop. Erin is foul-mouthed, bad-tempered, barely ethical and simply fun to follow around south-east England as she works the demon’s job. I particularly enjoyed when the story hit notes of horror. The authors come up with some creatively gruesome imagery.

This book was my introduction to the Uncanny Kingdom. I’ll be reading the sequel, and checking out some of the other denizens of this darker England.
