Is the baby going to be a monster like his daddy? Is Morrigan going to find out about the baby and try to grab it? Will Hecate demand that Pete kill the baby? Hmm, lots of answers for the next book. Which brings Pete to evil necromancers, Order of the Malleus, and plan to bring alive old god that can destroy London. Oh, and Jack is back Which leads to Hecate's warning t 3. Which leads to Hecate's warning to Pete Before the tide drowns all things, you must do what you were born to.
Keep the seasons turning. If the gateways fall, the sea rushes in. This, you must never allow. What has always been your born task, Weir. I don't know how authentic the British feel, since the author is an American right? I have to admit that I don't like Pete very much in this. Since Jack disappeared, I feel like she becomes one of those angry and snarky females. Which reminds me how I also don't like Kittredge's other heroine, Luna, from her Nocturne City series.
Maybe her heroines just don't appeal to me. Having said that, I enjoy the main storyline. I like the idea of evil necromancers and old rituals -- it is also good to know HOW Jack manages to crawl out from Hell. I think it makes sense -- and somehow makes Jack more human and relatable. He admits that he is weak and he cannot survive Hell; it destroys his soul and he cannot return to the tortures.
Interestingly, I find Belial to be quite charming, in that temporary alliance with Pete to stop the Morrigan. That when she dies, her soul belongs to Belial hide spoiler ]. I know that he is a demon, manipulative is his nature. But I don't know, I feel like he could be a good help for either Pete and Jack, despite the deal.
The ending is quite, uhm, surprising? It's not cliff-hanger per se, view spoiler [but I wonder if Pete will keep the pregnancy and how Jack will react to that? I would love to read book 4 soon Apr 20, Steph rated it really liked it Shelves: Bone Gods is book 3 in the Black London series, so there may be some series spoilers below.
Please start with book 1: In Demon Bound , Jack finally gave himself to the demon that had been after him. Now, Pete is all alone. But, there's a new killer on the loose and that's keeping her busy for the time being. She's no longer on the force, but gets called on cases which have hints o Bone Gods is book 3 in the Black London series, so there may be some series spoilers below.
She's no longer on the force, but gets called on cases which have hints of the supernatural. Her old partner, Ollie, has gotten a new partner and she's not sure how she feels about that. She's still known on the streets to other supes as "Jack Winter's Woman". Emphasizing that she is nothing without him. You're quick and brave and all things a Weir should be, but when it comes right down to it, you're a receptacle for mages.
Not even a magical pussy, or any sort of that feminist claptrap. And your mage is dead, and the Black isn't the place of heroes and cowboys any longer. People she thought were dead or as good as and they both bring trouble with them. Now, Pete must fight the evil that's threatening to bust the Black wide open, bringing it and all it's minions and darkness into London.
I enjoy this series. There were several surprises in this one that kept it interesting. I will be continuing on with the series. May 13, Crystal rated it really liked it. If you've ever read my reviews for the other books in this series or any of my comments about them, then you are aware that I am a total Kittredge fan girl and have a seriously stalker like obsession with this series. I liked her Luna Wilder series but this series is just on another level altogether.

There is too much backstory and you will be lost. Basically this story picks up with Pete trying piece her life together If you've ever read my reviews for the other books in this series or any of my comments about them, then you are aware that I am a total Kittredge fan girl and have a seriously stalker like obsession with this series. Basically this story picks up with Pete trying piece her life together after the loss of Jack.
She is just a shadow of her self and because she is a Weir with no active power of her own she is a target in the Black. Her old partner from the Scotland Yard, Ollie Heath, calls her in to look at a murder scene and give him some advice. I really don't want to give too much away so I won't go into more of the plot. There is a lot that is going on plot wise in the book, it's definitely a turning point in the series.
Since he is on the cover of the book and it has been posted elsewhere I will say that Jack does come back in this book but he is most decidedly not person he once was-he is both more and less. This book really shows what Pete is made of, she learns that she can stand on her own and that Jack might not be the person she always thought he was.
This was a very emotional book and I even teared up at the end. It has a very bittersweet ending, and it does have a bit of a shocking development at the very end with a small cliffhanger. I really can't wait for the follow-up, Devil's Business. If you are a fan of the urban fantasy genre and you haven't read the Black London series, you definitely should. Oct 02, Sabrina Ogden rated it it was amazing. Unfortunately,in Bone Gods, Jack's been summoned to Hell and Pete is left alone in the dreary world of London to live without him.
But living without Jack gets a little easier for Pete when a bizarre ritualistic killing has Pete's former partner calling her for help in the investigation. This investigation takes her to an evil underworld dance club that leaves her on the floor about to be trampled to death in the middle of a mosh pit, when suddenly Yep, he's back from Hell, and c Unfortunately,in Bone Gods, Jack's been summoned to Hell and Pete is left alone in the dreary world of London to live without him.
Yep, he's back from Hell, and changed forever As they work together in another investigation, we learn about a turf war brewing in the supernatural underworld of the fey with necromancers threatening to take over and go to war with the demons. But the more Pete learns, the more dangerous things become, and the more she understands about her and Jack's role in how the war will end.
The more Pete learns, the more dangerous things become, and the more she understands about her and Jack's role in how the war will end. You see, Jack, the all-powerful crow-mage, has been chosen to lead the army of demons in this war. And Pete, well, she's been chosen to kill the crow-mage. At this point most people would probably throw up their hands in despair and pack their bags and run. This deal turns out to be a good thing, because having Jack around will prove useful in just a few short months totally a spoiler, btw.
Mar 29, Star rated it it was amazing. Pete's got a whole lot on her hands and is essentially flying blind. She gets a call from her old partner who wants her to come and look at a murder victim - not just an ordinary murder victim, but one who has all sort of strange symbols carved into his body. Pete starts her investigation and all of the sudden so many people are interested in what she's finding out. Now everything takes on a new complication when Jack returns from Hell - with "no memory" of how he escaped.
Pete's given a directi Pete's got a whole lot on her hands and is essentially flying blind. Pete's given a directive by The Hecate to kill Jack, but she needs to figure out what is going with the symbols carved into the dead man's flesh first. Will Pete realize how everything is interconnected before it's too late? I just love the grittiness of this series. It's not sweetness and light, but dark, dank, and dirty - it's great!! I do feel for Pete and the dilemma that she's in now, but she's made her choices and she's got to figure out her own way to live with or deal with the consequences.
And she's not above giving some nasty bloke a boot to the bollocks and more if they cross her. Do be warned - there is strong language in the book, so if that's not your thing, please keep that in mind. Otherwise, hop on a plane and take the tube down to Black London Feb 15, Paris rated it really liked it Shelves: Bone Gods is the perfect example of this. In fact, the entire Black London series is a perfect example of her darkness. Pete and Jack are not your typical Urban Fantasy duo. In Bone Gods, there is danger everywhere and I like that the singular story arc of the book helps flush out the overall arc of the series.
I recommend this series completely, especially to anyone who loves UF, but wants something a little different. I'm a fan of this series so this is automatically biased. I don't mind the British slang and accents, I like the constant cigarette smoking and I get a kick out of the very real and rough and tumble anti-heroes that Pete and Jack both are. Much of this book is Pete alone as Jack is sort of well You get a sense of her grief and my one issue is that she's a bit of a Despite her reactions, it suited her character and really this is the first book I'm a fan of this series so this is automatically biased.
Despite her reactions, it suited her character and really this is the first book in which we get a sense of her as a character. The other books are really Jack dominated, especially the last one and since we really have only Pete to go with on this one, it's definitely interesting. We get a view of the Black and of Jack in a way that we never did before. I can't wait until the next one. Especially to see how things develop Feb 28, April rated it really liked it Shelves: It is written with deth and details. It is the third in the "A Black London Novel" series.
Although,having read first two would bring the characters together more. It has witches,witch hunts,supernatural,necromancers,magic,conflict,treachery,mystery,world domination,and struggles between good and evil. For readers of urban fantasy this is a tense,toug fantasy with banter and dark magic. It is a journey for some of the characters to finding their own. If you enjoy dark urban fantasy you will enjoy this one also. This book was received for the purpose of review from the publisher and details can be found at St.
Martins's Paperbacks, published by St. Dec 04, Cher rated it did not like it Shelves: Why am I so addicted to this series? I think because it feels like an extension of Buffy the Vampire Slayer somehow. It was embarrassing when I called around town trying to hunt down a copy, because the clerks who answered the phone were all suppressing a giggle at the title!
For one thing, Jack Winter isn't in it very much. But the main reason I found it Why am I so addicted to this series? But the main reason I found it boring was that the crisis of the novel was taht the world was going to end because hell was going to open up -- only there wasn't any evidence of that except a few characters stating it.
Additionally, it read like pages of witty threats and insults, with pretty much no action. And don't get me started on the twist at the end, which I decided was awful. Feb 26, Jennie Bo Bennie rated it really liked it. Sometimes the major action sequences are a bit confusing to me, but because they're actually magical action sequences, maybe it's just my poor imagination?
I think I may have 3 starred the last book, which doesn't mean I didn't like it-- but I'm certain now that I related better to Pete OR it's just easier to read about their world via Pete than it is via Jack. Jack seems to go on and on in surprisingly semi-poetic mental rants about the Black. The books vi I enjoy this series. The books via Pete seem to be more precise and she's still learning about magic and the Black and so am I, so perhaps it's easier to keep up? Anyhow, the first book, and this, the third we're with Pete. The second and I'm assuming the fourth, with Jack. On to the next! Jan 28, J rated it liked it.
Jul 10, Katter rated it it was ok Shelves: You know it has come to my notice that the reason I didn't get into this book is as much as the last is because it's told from Pete's PoV and I really have to say that she is just a bitch. The only reason that the book got any better was because Jack came into the picture. Pete is not a strong enough character to stand on her own.
Bones - God's Living Girders
Her chronic attitude problem really rubs me the wro You know it has come to my notice that the reason I didn't get into this book is as much as the last is because it's told from Pete's PoV and I really have to say that she is just a bitch. Her chronic attitude problem really rubs me the wrong way and I find myself not liking her for the most part.
Not only did Pete grate on my nerves but the rest of the story was just 'meh'. Nicholas Naughton is back wreaking havoc and trying to bring about the end of the world. I suppose that would be more exciting to me but that whole end of the world thing has been regurgitated so many times in urban fiction that it has lost it's pull. So we have Necromancers and the Order fellows which are supposed religious zealots but I really have to wonder if Ethan Morningstar and his lackeys are that bad.
Jack told Pete about their strict ways they deal with folks who use the Black but so far I can't say that there seem to be nice things in the Black so I am not seeing the problem with the Order at the moment. Not to mention the fact that I am not sure we can really take Jack's word for things. He isn't exactly squeaky clean so I can just imagine the company he use to keep. The only thing that makes me scratch my head about the Order is the fact that the leaders last name is 'Morningstar'. So he chose the last name that refers to Satan or could he actually be the fallen angel? I am interested to see where Kittredge takes that character.
The last pages is when the book really gets better but it still didn't have me bursting with excitement. Belial made it better as I find his character interesting but that was pretty much it. Quite a lackluster installment but I will still read the next one as I think it will be from Jack's PoV. If so then I think it will be infinitely more tolerable. Not to mention I want to know what will happen with them both considering that ending. I called it when I started reading it and then it was confirmed.
All I can say is 'Oh boy! That sure throws a monkey wrench into things especially with all the folks that are always gunning for the duo. Pete's big fat mouth sure won't help anything but seeing as it'll probably be a Jack book I am sure it would be oodles better than this one. I'll cross my fingers and hope for some true awesomeness in the next Black adventure. Jun 21, Denise rated it liked it Shelves: After Jack gets dragged to hell, Pete is carrying on as best she can and when her former colleague Ollie Heath asks for her help with a vicious ritual murder, she promptly gets herself involved in all kinds of trouble involving necromancy, witchhunters, the unexpectant and unwelcome return of her mother, indications of the imminent destruction of Black London and other fun stuff.
And because her plate isn't full enough with crap of all descriptions, Jack comes back from the dead - again. But his After Jack gets dragged to hell, Pete is carrying on as best she can and when her former colleague Ollie Heath asks for her help with a vicious ritual murder, she promptly gets herself involved in all kinds of trouble involving necromancy, witchhunters, the unexpectant and unwelcome return of her mother, indications of the imminent destruction of Black London and other fun stuff. But his sojourn in hell has changed him, and on top of everything else a goddess insists that Pete kill him to stop the bloody chaos about to descend on the city.
For the first half of the book, while we're only following Pete on her investigation and Jack is off cooling or warming, as the case may be his heels in hell, I actually enjoyed this a whole lot more than the first two books in the series.

These words include racial slurs but also any terms that essentialise or sum up a person, such as "fat".
Recently, for example, both an American sports star and a film producer have been castigated for their use of "retarded", while people can be legally prosecuted in Britain for "racially aggravated harassment", which boils down to using racial slurs.
