Book Series Sunday: The Black Sun's Daughter Series by M.L. N. Hanover

I'm back!!  A loooooooong time ago I started "sporadically" at best a my own Sunday meme called Book Series Sunday. It's a day where I spotlight a favorite series of mine be it old or new. I'm happy to say, I'm back on track and raring to go! So without further adeu, check out what I've picked for this week!

The Black Sun's Daughter 
by M. L. N. Hanover

Jayné Heller thinks of herself as a realist, until she discovers reality isn’t quite what she thought it was. When her uncle Eric is murdered, Jayné travels to Denver to settle his estate, only to learn that it’s all hers — and vaster than she ever imagined. And along with properties across the world and an inexhaustible fortune, Eric left her a legacy of a different kind: his unfinished business with a cabal of wizards known as the Invisible College.
Led by the ruthless Randolph Coin, the Invisible College harnesses demon spirits for their own ends of power and domination. Jayné finds it difficult to believe magic and demons can even exist, let alone be responsible for the death of her uncle. But Coin sees Eric’s heir as a threat to be eliminated by any means — magical or mundane — so Jayné had better start believing in something to save her own life.

When Jayné Heller’s uncle Eric died, she inherited a fortune beyond all her expectations — and a dangerous mission in a world she never knew existed. Reining in demons and supernatural foes is a formidable task, but thankfully Jayné has vast resources and loyal allies to rely on. She’ll need both to tackle a bodyswitching serial killer who’s taken up residence in New Orleans, a city rich in voodoo lore and dark magic.


Working alongside Karen Black, a highly confident and enigmatic ex-FBI agent, Jayné races to track down the demon’s next intended host. But the closer she gets, the more convinced she becomes that nothing in this beautiful, wounded city is exactly as it seems. When shocking secrets come to light, and jealousy and betrayal turn trusted friends into adversaries, Jayné will soon come face-to-face with an enemy that knows her all too well, and won’t rest until it has destroyed everything she loves most….




For the first time in forever, Jayné Heller’s life is making sense. Even if she routinely risks her life to destroy demonic parasites that prey on mortals, she now has friends, colleagues, a trusted lover, and newfound confidence in the mission she inherited from her wealthy, mysterious uncle. Her next job might just rob her of all of them. At Grace Memorial Hospital in Chicago, something is stirring. Patients are going AWOL and research subjects share the same sinister dreams. Half a century ago, something was buried under Grace in a terrible ritual, and it’s straining to be free. Jayné is primed to take on whatever’s about to be let loose. Yet the greatest danger now may not be the huge, unseen force lurking below, but the evil that has been hiding in plain sight all along—taking her ever closer to losing her body, her mind, and her soul. . . .
If you're a fan of Urban Fantasy, The Black Sun's Daughter Series by M. L. Hanover is a series you don't want to miss.  Hanover creates a world where the paranormal species like Vamps and werewolves are really "Riders" demons from hell that possess humans and wreak havoc all over the world.


Jayne Heller (pronounced Zah-nay) is a newbie who is thrust into the supernatural world after the death of her favorite uncle.  Book 1, Unclean Spirits takes readers on the road of discovery along with Jayne as she learns what about her uncle's past and her new future.


I will be brutally honest - Book 1 is "okay." Here's my original review that I posted on my first blog: The Black Vampire Chronicles. I only gave it 2 stars.  So now I know you're wondering - WHAT THE HELL, DREN? How can this series really be worthy of it's own friggin series post if you gave the first book TWO STARS??


*deep breath* My answer .... Because Book Two TOTALLY KICKS ASS!! And Book 3 makes you want re-read it -- again, just because!  Admittedly, it was at least a year before I picked up Darker Angels because I was irritated with the issues in the first book. But oh I'm so glad I did! I can happily say Jayne is a kick-ass lead character with just as many flaws and strengths as the evil riders that she and her hang hunts down to destroy.


So if you're looking for something new to dig into -- I recommend The Black Sun's Daughter Series.  Book One may be a little dragging but is sooooo worth it. You'll have all the info you need to jump into book two and three!


Get your read on!
