Review: Bone Gods by Caitlin Kittredge

Bone Gods
by Caitlin Kittredge
(Black London # 3)

Jack has gone, dragged into Hell, and Pete is left to cope and fend for herself in the Black, the underground world of magic where the things you dream of in nightmares roam freely waiting to shred you to pieces. Pete can feel something coming in the Black, and when she is called to look at a dead man with unusual and unsettling carvings in his chest things get from bad to worse. Then Jack comes back, or has he....

What I like most about these books is that they are unpredictable, I never quite know what is going to happen, and this book proved no different. In the world of the Black there is no real Right and Wrong, just what you can live with, and what you can get way with, nothing is cut and dried. Jack is a great example of this, you know that he isn't really a good person and you know he definitely isn't good for Pete and this book underlines that; however, you can't help but like him and even understand him a little and maybe forgive him when you know you shouldn't.

Bone Gods was great, it was told through Pete's eyes again, and although I missed Jacks perspective, she was a good character to cling on to. The plot in this one brought about a direct confrontation between the Morrigan and Hecate through Jack and Pete this was filled with tension and you never really knew what either of them were going to do until they did it. The only thing I didn't really like was that the plot was quite slow, and it took a while for significant events to happen.

I really enjoyed this installment, her writing is excellent and the characters some of the most interetsing I have read and I can't wait for the next one, especially with how she has left it hanging!
