Soul Breaker by Clara Coulson WITH Review

Soul Breaker by Clara Coulson 
(City of Crows, #1) 
Publication date: November 11th 2015
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Synopsis:

There’s a hideous monster on the loose, crushing heads and taking names.

But Detective Calvin Kinsey is on the case!

Two years ago, Cal Kinsey was an up-and-coming cop in the Aurora Police Department. But during a fateful nighttime stakeout in search of a prolific killer, Cal witnessed the darkest corner of his dreams come to life. A rogue vampire slaughtered his partner—to put it nicely—and introduced Cal to the supernatural world he never knew existed in the shadows.

Now, Cal is a newly minted detective at the often mocked Department of Supernatural Investigations. By day, the agents of DSI are called  “Kooks” by local law enforcement. By night, they’re known as “Crows,” reviled by the supernatural underworld.

Mere weeks out of the academy, Cal catches his first real case, a vicious murder at a local college. An unknown sorcerer has summoned a powerful creature from the Eververse, a realm of magic and mayhem that borders Earth, and set it on a dangerous warpath through the city.

Between butting heads with his grumpy team captain, stirring up ill will with the local wizards and witches, and repeatedly getting the crap  beaten out of himself, Cal must find a way to stop the Eververse monster and send it back to the hell it came from…

…preferably before Aurora, Michigan runs out of coffins for the dead.

I really enjoyed this book.  It is well written and makes you wonder what really goes bump in the night.  When Cal has a run in with a demonic creature from the Eververse (a place where all the hells of all beliefs live), he realizes his abilities are not going to take it down.  Even with the help of others in his department and local witches and wizards, the creature continues its rampage.  They work on trying to send it back where it came from.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mystery, suspense and the paranormal.  I am really looking forward to the continuing story in Shade Chaser coming in Feb 2016.  Great job, Clara!  Keep up the great work!!
