(The City Between #2) by W.R. Gingell
Pet draws her three psychos into the mysterious death of a human this time around. A human found splatted underneath a dumpster near a grocery where then Pen (and JinYeong) end up working.
This installment definitely isn’t meant to tie up anything into anything even close to a neat package. We get more hints that Pet isn’t exactly a normal human (Zero seems really interested in her relationship to the house).
Pet gets mixed up with some more BehindKin, and the author does a fairly good job of throwing us off the scent of the real bad guy until the end.
There wasn’t quite enough JinYeong and Korean for my taste…I guess I want to spend more time with the three psychos (even Athelras) and less time with Pet and other humans working in the grocery. Still, I am going to go buy the next in the series to find out what happens next, and if some of the foreshadowing around Pet, the house and Athelras mean anything.
