"When Maxine's world is turned upside down one question comes to mind. Will they survive?"

Maxine is back and so are her tattoos. When a woman shows up
with a mysterious gift for her, Maxine soon realizes just
what her demons mean to her. They are unexpectedly freed
from Maxine and go on a joy ride and run amuck on their own.
Maxine and Grant must not only continue trying to figure out
their own powers but must now find a way to keep the demons
from returning to their old ways or the world will pay.
There is so much to learn and not enough time to do what
needs to be done. Can Maxine reunite with her demons and
save us before it is too late?
Marjorie M. Liu does a great job of immersing the reader
into the worlds that she creates. This book had me right
from the start. I really enjoyed the relationship between
Grant and Maxine. It only grows stronger as the series goes
on. I loved finding out the intricacies of the demons and
the hunter they are bound to. The interaction between Maxine
and her demons made for a great read. I truly enjoyed the
ending and the revelations. The connection between Maxine
and the demons is a strong and beautiful thing that at times
even pulls on your heartstrings. Grant and Maxine are a
wonderful couple and learn so much together. I loved getting
to see more of the demons and getting to understand them
more as well as Maxine and Grant. The characters in this
book were full of so much depth and emotion you could
practically feel it coming off of the pages.
MORTAL BONE is a great addition to this series and I cannot
wait to see what comes next. I hope that we get to see more
of Maxine and her friends. I would advise reading this
series from the start otherwise you will be lost. It is well
worth the read to get them all.
When the bond Maxine Kiss shares with Zee and the boys—the
demons tattooed on her skin—is deliberately severed, the
hunter is left vulnerable and unprotected. For the first
time in ten thousand years, the boys have a taste of
freedom—without Maxine’s guiding influence.
As they grow more violent and unpredictable, Maxine starts
to fear the little demons will lose their minds without
their attachment to her. But reuniting won’t be easy, as a
greater temptation waits for her former protectors: a chance
to return to their lives as Reaper Kings and unleash hell on
