Summoner of Storms (Spectr #6)
Federal exorcist John Starkweather’s life is in tatters. His best friend Sean betrayed him. SPECTR, the agency he viewed more as a surrogate family than an employer, wants him dead.
His only allies are members of the mysterious organization called the Vigilant, whose motives remain in question.
The only thing keeping John together is the presence of his lovers: Caleb Jansen, a powerful telekinetic, and Gray, the vampire spirit possessing Caleb.
Together, they must not only evade capture, but somehow stop SPECTR from building an army of demon possessed soldiers.
If they are to succeed, John must question everything he’s ever believed about SPECTR and spirits.
And Caleb and Gray must decide how far they’re willing to go—not just for John’s love, but for his very life.
Yes, THIS is the final installment the Spectr series! The big finale! Hang on for a wild ride.
What I've loved about this series from Jordan L Hawk is the setting, the sense of place. Most of the action takes place in the US city of Charleston, South Carolina. The flowing descriptions of crumbling swamp ruins and set amongst urban sprawls are simply beautiful, poetic at times (as Hawk's prose often is).
There's also lots of action in the Government agency buildings with the 'good' agents on the run, rogue, from their untrustworthy ex-comrades in Spectr while they try to figure out who they can trust. For fans of spy thrillers, espionage, and detective dramas, this series has it all, blended with paranormal superstition, history, voodoo magic and demons.
Hawk clearly knows her stuff when it comes to these subjects, and the narrative flows like a dream, still easy to follow for someone like me who doesn't usually delve into detective themed books. There's enough exorcist and demon action to keep this dramatic and unique, and Hawk delivers an EPIC final installment in Summoner of Storms.
I'm reluctant to give too much away, but I would say the clue --as ever!-- is in the title of the book. That should give the reader some idea what to expect from the final battle between the agents of Spectr and the demons summoned forth in battle.
I enjoyed this series so much, and the final book certainly delivers the goods. Readers will not be disappointed, except in that the series has come to its end! (sob)
Job well done, Hawk!
