New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Carey returns to the curious Midwest tourist community where normal and paranormal worlds co-exist—however tenuously—under the watchful eye of a female hellspawn…

Fathered by an incubus, raised by a mortal mother, and liaison to the Pemkowet Police Department, Daisy Johanssen pulled the community together after a summer tragedy befell the resort town she calls home. Things are back to normal—as normal as it gets for a town famous for its supernatural tourism, and presided over by the reclusive Norse goddess Hel.

Not only has Daisy now gained respect as Hel’s enforcer, she’s dating Sinclair Palmer, a nice, seemingly normal human guy. Not too shabby for the daughter of a demon. Unfortunately, Sinclair has a secret. And it’s a big one.

He’s descended from Obeah sorcerers and they want him back. If he doesn’t return to Jamaica to take up his rightful role in the family, they’ll unleash spirit magic that could have dire consequences for the town. It’s Daisy’s job to stop it, and she’s going to need a lot of help. But time is running out, the dead are growing restless, and one mistake could cost Daisy everything…

Baker & Taylor
Daisy Johanssen, the supernatural liaison to the Pemkowet Police Department, discovers that her new boyfriend is descended from sorcerers who want him back home in Jamaica or they will unleash their dire magic on the town.

I was not a fan of this second book to much because I thought the story took a bit long to get rolling. But with that said, the ending is action packed and I love the writing so I shall continue on to the last book.

The first book, Dark Currents, was decent, with another feisty heroine who surprisingly wasn't a constant smart-mouth.
But this sequel starts out with wall-to-wall gratuitous cheaplike sex that turned me off completely.
Gah!

Jacqueline Carey has changed a lot throughout her writing career and has shown that whether she's writing deep, complex, books full of rich imagery, or something quicker, they bring worlds and characters to life. If you are a fan of Patricia Briggs, this series will appeal to you.

I am a huge Jacqueline Carey fan, but this is not her strongest book, not even compared to the first book in this series. Yet it was a fun quick read. The town of Pemkowet is almost more compelling than anything else in the novel. It's so lovingly described and detailed, it made me want to live there, at least for the fall season. Obeah magic is the big bad of this novel, and I wish it had been explored/included in much more depth than it was. Because of the lightness and episodic nature of the series, the threats never seem as real or harrowing as Carey is capable of writing. In this way, the Agent of Hel books seem much more like a weekly tv show, which is fine if that's what you're looking for. I'd still recommend it.
