Death's Hand (Descent, #1)

Death's Hand - S.M. Reine 3.5/5
I'm going to be short in this review. I'm a great fan of Constantine, which is why I loved the idea of Elise - a lone exorcist who works as an accountant for demons and tries to bury her past.

However, the book despite excellent action scenes, and there is a lot of them, lacks wholesomeness of the plot. Many chapters are disjointed and remind me of a puzzle with some of the pieces lost. That's no good, because in the end Death's Hand is reduced to a collection of vivid pictures - interesting in their own right, but not making much sense if you put them all together.
