Calliope Reaper-Jones is Death’s Daughter. She owes a debt to Cerberus, the three headed dog that guards the gate’s of hell-a debt that involves a trip to Purgatory, Las Vegas, ancient Egypt, and a discount department store that’s more frightening than any supernatural creature she’ll ever encounter.
Cat’s Claw is the second book in the Calliope Reaper-Jones series by Amber Benson….and what a follow up it is!! Amber Benson has done a fantastic job once again! Cat’s Claw follows Callie on a new adventure that leads her all over the globe. Still as sassy and fashion forward as ever, Callie is now trying to solve a mystery that has her own destiny on the line.
One of my favorite things about this book was for a totally personal reason. As the synopsis says, Callie ends up in Las Vegas for part of this book. The cool thing is, she ends up at the Luxor Hotel & Casino and I was just there in August 2011.
Having been there in person myself, I could totally see everything she describes, including the funky elevator they have that they call an Inclinator.
Overall, this book is fantastic! It’s a great follow up to Death’s Daughter and ends with one hell of a cliff hanger. I cant wait to read Serpent’s Storm to see where this goes!! For those of you who have read or will be reading this series, dont forget that the 4th installment in the series, How To Be Death, also comes out 2/28/2012.
I give Cat’s Claw 5 stars! Hands down one of the most fun series I have ever read! Great job Ms. Benson!
