Book Description

Some Things
are Worse Than Demons.




Jimmy Holiday, reluctant exorcist, is finally
getting the help he needs from the higher-ups. The Order of Markers is sending
him to the Vatican’s exorcism school. Now, he’ll receive the training he should
have gotten at the beginning. One problem, someone wants to sabotage him.



When his time at the school is cut short, Jimmy
receives an interesting new case. It is the assignment that no one wants—a
corpse has come back to life. And it isn’t a zombie.



Too bad nothing goes as expected. Armed with his
usual bag of tricks, Jimmy thinks everything will eventually be all right.
Well, that is until his betrayer turns out to be the person he trusts most.



Excerpt

If ever I thought stuff couldn’t get any weirder in my
life, boy was I wrong. Getting out of Arizona was—well, interesting to say the
least. No way could we take Lucy on a plane—not without documentation or
permission from her parents, which wasn’t going to happen. Poor kid had it
rough learning how to walk on real feet again. Then there was the airplane
itself. She’d been through enough having been possessed, separated from her
body, and ultimately left with me to take care of her. Now this.

How did you call up someone to ask if you could take their
daughter’s spirit that had just developed its own body on an airplane while
they still had her real body in Virginia? It was enough to make my brain bleed.

And of course, I didn’t have their new phone number, but
that was beside the point.

Like I said, things had gotten a whole heap weirder.

“Are you going to help me or not?” Tabby stood behind the
car, fiddling with the suitcase.

I was in trouble again. It was starting to become a trend.
One of these days she would clobber me. I could see it coming. I got out of the
car, took the monstrous suitcase from her, and loaded it into the trunk.

“Car rental place said we can have the car, but there’s a
fee,” I said, closing the back hatch.

Of course there would be. It wasn’t like some big
organization was going to be nice or anything. Hell, I had trouble with people
in general. Why would a corporation be any different?

“How much?”

I shrugged. “I didn’t ask.”

Thwap. My head rocked forward.

“Did you hit me?” I stared at her. Maybe being psychic was
another added bonus to this marker thing. Nah, if that were the case, I
wouldn’t have screwed up in Arizona.

Tabby stood with her hands on her hips. Her red hair framed
her face like she was some sort of pissed-off goddess. Her eyes darkened, and I
was reminded of that guy on TV who kept hitting his workers on the back of the
head.

“Yes, I did,” she said. “Just because you love that magic
black card, it doesn’t mean you don’t have to worry about it.”

I rubbed my head. Damn, she hit hard. “If this was my sort
of normal I’d be worried. But how else are we getting this menagerie home?”

“Good point.”

I was glad she saw it that way because there wasn’t another
option. It wasn’t like I had some amazing powers like flight or anything.

“Was that the last of it?” I asked. The trunk was almost
full. I could maybe fit a small stuffed animal in there, but that was
questionable.

“Yep.”

“Okay. Let’s blow this popsicle stand.”

Sorrow's Turn
I have read the first 3 books in this series so far. Book 1 was really good, book 2 I wasn't all that crazy about book 3 (this one) was pretty good. I do like the pretense of the series just not crazy about the lead character Jimmy. Boy needs to man up and get serious instead of being a whiny baby. 

Jimmy Holiday is a reluctant exorcist. He is all a defrocked Priest and is living with Tabby a witch, 2 spirits Lucy and Doc, and a cat. I have to say my favorite part of the book was when Tabby told him to quit whining.  Jimmy is a real whiner he goes on about everything all the time to the point it really distracts from the story. I guess it a personality trait Danielle Devor has given him but it gets on my nerves. I think if he didn't whine quite to much I would love these books more. 

In this book at first Jimmy is getting ready to go to Italy to begin his exorcism classes.  he will be taking Lucy with him since her soul is attached to him. Doc will be going to wherever he goes to recharge and Tabby will be staying home.  Right before he is to head to Italy they find out that Lucy's body has passed away. Jimmy wonders what will happen to her soul now.  

I really don't want to go into much more detail of the book as there are twists and turn in this one and If I go into to detail it will take away from someone who reads my review and then the book. I do lie that in a way this book is more centered on the rest of the main characters we get to know them a little better.
