One thought on “Unclean Spirits

  1. seak

    I don t read a lot of Urban Fantasy, but when I do, I read the Dresden Files Now, I read The Black Sun s Daughter as well After putting this up, I realized that Stephen has a much better and awesomer review on this same concept I didn t copy his promise , but do check his out, that s the way to do it Unclean Spirits is the first of M.L.N Hanover s Black Sun s Daughter series As you may or may not know, M.L.N Hanover is the pseudonym of the author Daniel Abraham Abraham talks about his many pseud [...]

    You aren t Jewish or Muslim or anything fucked up like that, are you And the script the baddies seem to be covered in just happens to look like Arabic Right The protagonist might not be but I am What the fuck, man I was actually liking the story.

  3. Emma

    Very good urban fantasy I recently read The Dragons Path series by Daniel Abraham and loved it Shortly afterwards, I discovered he had written this urban fantasy series and decided to give it a go It was worth it Very pleased to have 4 in the series.

  4. Monty Cupcake ☠ Queen of Bloodshed ☠

    A very long winded book The characters are fine, but never connected The main character, Jayn , she was like a pointless blob that sometimes manifested skills which is never explained A lot of over explaining some things nothing on others Just boring And worst romance ever Btw, the cover is a complete lie Jayn is not that cool, never does magic, never uses a knife sword.

  5. Mike (the Paladin)

    Didn t finish this one It strikes me as just another attempt at the antihero, ain t I tough and nonconformist urban fantasy niche that is showing up now I didn t care much about Jayne zha nay not Jane nor her adventures Doesn t mean it won t suit you but I ve got hundreds of books waiting to be readd many that I d rather read than this one If it s your cup of tea as I ve said before, enjoy I m old enough and have enough years behind me and few enough ahead that I don t make myself finish every b [...]

  6. Lauren (Shakespeare & Whisky)

    3.5 starsFinally an urban fantasy that isn t sexist as fuck and is self aware without letting go of the tropes that make this genre fun.I should add thou that a weirdly racist is it racist when it s against then one religion What is the word that covers prejudice that is a bit racist plus offensive to people of multiple faiths comment came out of nowhere was jarring, offensive and unnecessary That dropped a star for me Otherwise it was a great UF book.Edit Having read the next one and a half bo [...]

    3.5 that I m rounding up I enjoyed Jayne and her ragamuffin band, and especially liked the twist on vampires, etc that Hanover gives us in the world building Really the only thing I wasn t a huge fan of in this was the romance, but I suspect that will improve Looking forward to the next one

  8. Felicia

    One of the many many UF series out there, this one a tad less romancey than usual, i suspect that MLN Hanover is a guy by the way he writes Mmmmwhat I liked really good dialogue I thought the setup was a bit hard to buy I can overlook that, I guess the thing that bugged me most is that i didn t buy the romance at all On PAPER it s really interesting actually no spoilers, but the romance takes nonstandard twists that i hadn t seen before but i guess i felt the secondary characters were pretty thi [...]

  9. Sarah Anne

    Yep Four stars again It has its flaws but it also has some excellent action I do love this series.

  10. Shannon (Giraffe Days)

    Jayn Zha nay Heller is a twenty two year old university drop out, alienated from her upright, conservative family, and doesn t even know where she s going to sleep next month when she gets the call about her uncle, Eric The black sheep of the family, he s dead and has left her everything his numerous properties around the world, his vast fortune, his friends and his legacy The fortune was hard enough for her to swallow, but when she learns that Eric was involved in a battle with evil wizards kno [...]

  11. Scott

    A good introduction to this new series I love me some Abraham so it s cool to see him in another genre The guy can tell a damn story, that s for sure Interesting world and beasties with a young female MC who obviously has some issues to work throughWasn t much a fan of the love story but it didn t take up much time And, honestly, Aubrey kinda seems like a douche Much prefer Chogyi JakeWill be continuing on

  12. Cathy

    2.5 stars It s hard to believe that this author is really Daniel Abraham I just read the first four books of his Dagger and Coin series, which were great, and the first two of the Long Price Quartet, which were good, and while they could be a bit slow paced at times, they did not have the many issues that this had And of course The Expanse books, co written with Ty Franck, are great too.It was weird because it had a lot of potential The main character, Jayn , had a good backstory She broke off f [...]

  13. Mike

    Unclean Spirits by M L N Hanover, a pen name for one of my favorite authors Daniel Abraham, is the first in urban fantasy series the Black Sun s Daughter While I didn t have any major trouble reading Unclean Spirits it is a far cry from other works by Abraham It stands head and shoulders above other urban fantasy books I ve read, and its excellent pacing and smooth prose makes Unclean Spirits a quick read.Unclean Spirits opens with the troubled 22 year old Jayn Heller arriving in Denver as the i [...]

  14. Sarah Anne

    A large part of me didn t want to give this four stars There was this asinine conversation view spoiler where the MC sleeps with a guy Afterwards she s using his computer to google him and enlighten herself on the research he does She finds out that he s married She opens up his email and finds emails from the wife so she checks his tax records and finds out that they re still married I fully admit these last two steps were over the line She splits and heads back to her house and he arrives in a [...]

  15. Katie Michaels

    Unclean Spirits puts a new twist on the standard urban fantasy fare Yes, it s got vampires, lycans, and demons of a fashion, but the ideology is different Here, otherworldly spirits can transcend out of their own world into ours and latch on a human They become riders taking over their host s body and wreaking havoc.Jayn knows nothing about riders or magic But when her Uncle Eric dies, she inherits his home and his money his secret life is an unexpected part of the deal Eric fought the riders Wh [...]

  16. Kindra Erickson

    I couldn t finish it And I m still in my rereading slump sarcastic cheer It was just too predictable the plot has been used before , and the author had extremely strong opinions that she pretty much shoved in your face Now I m going to go reread The Kiss of Deception and count the days until I get enough money to buy the sequel.

  17. Beth F.

    Jayne Heller, pronounced Zha nay, is a college dropout and still recovering from her upbringing in a strict Christian family She rebelled from her upbringing by attending a secular college and partaking in all the expected vices like drinking beer and sleeping with her boyfriend But then the money ran out and she realized she couldn t identify with her peers While trying to figure out the next step, she found out her favorite uncle had been murdered and had left her everything money, real estate [...]

  18. Veronica

    What to say about this bookum, it has a cool cover Here s the thing, if the overall plot of a book is weak but there is a yummy romance then usually the romance aspect can sustain my interest in a series Conversely, if the romance is not all that but the plot and world building are top notch then I m along for the ride The problem for me with this book is that it fell short both counts, plot and romance As for plot, nothing really happened in this book It was a group of people basically hanging [...]

  19. Fangs for the Fantasy

    When I finished reading Unclean Spirits, I found myself staring at the cursor on my computer screen, not sure about what to say about this series I certainly am not overwhelmed by the story, but the book sorts of leaves you with a blank feeling It begins with Eric Alexander Heller, sitting in a dive bar attempting to hire a few low lives to do a job He seems to have a sort of special sight that allows him to determine if someone is really human or, nosferatu or loupine Apparently, these creature [...]

  20. Jim

    have I read too many novels of this sort Am I just getting bored with them I asked myself this several times I don t think so The writing just wasn t that good the heroine wasn t very believable or well done I wouldn t have minded if she or anyone else died The basic idea wasn t bad, a different take on the whole vampire werewolf thing Riders, spirits from another dimension, take over human bodies make the bad guys Her uncle fights them She does now too She suddenly can fight really well, with n [...]

  21. K

    hmmm I was really intrigued by the premise but the characters felt really flat I was about half way through it when I put it down in favor of a new release that I had been dying to read I feel like the book had a lot of potential just no character development and in the end I realized that I really didn t care what happened to any of them I may resurrect it later depending on how the sequel is received.

  22. chucklesthescot

    I had seen a lot of mixed reviews of this book which I had already bought so I wasn t sure what to expect I must admit that I really enjoyed it Jayne arrives in Denver as heir to her Uncle Eric s estate, the only family member who never disowned him Now she has become very rich, with lots of properties and storage units to look through Eric was also up to his eyes in magic a demons, a talent he may have passed to Jayne Now Eric s team want to continue with his plan to stop evil Randolph Coin, Er [...]

  23. Kevin Kelsey

    This was my first Urban Fantasy novel, and I m pretty sure that this genre just isn t for me I don t really like the idea of writing a whole genre off like that, but I ll get around to explaining my reasoning a little later The world building was well thought out, and I really appreciated the unique take on trying to explain the usual mythological creatures from a biological angle, but the story was just so generic, the characters pretty see through, and the writing merely competent.It s one of [...]

  24. Lightreads

    Daniel Abraham under yet another pseudonym Typical urban fantasy setup attractive and disaffected girl in her twenties inherits untold wealth when her estranged uncle dies, and also his supernatural fight with creepy demon thingies.I always react a little complicatedly to men writing female POV urban fantasy And by always I mean here and for Tim Pratt, the only other example that springs to mind These guys write books that actively respond to all the bitching I do about urban fantasy written by [...]

  25. Natasha

    This was my first M.L.N Hanover book and I really enjoyed it I really took to her writing and the way she made her characters I don t want to give too many spoilers away, but here s a rough outlineIn Unclean Spirits Eric Heller is in the start of the book and quickly dies and leaves his entire estate to his niece, Jayn Heller her name is pronounced zha nay, but it s usually mispronounced as Jane She s very close to her 23rd birthday, and although her uncles death is tragic she really had no one [...]

  26. Anita

    I love it when you pick up a book with no expectations and are blown away by it This book did that to me It s a contemporary urban fantasy set in Denver, and it s one of the best series intros I ve read in a long time Jayne Heller inherited everything from her uncle, Eric Heller, when she was only 23 Along with money and property, she also chose to claim his life s work as a part of that inheritance hunting down evil beings called riders that take over human bodies vampires, weres, other demons [...]

  27. Darcy

    I wasn t too sure what to think about this book at first, but was interested enough to keep going, then all of a sudden it sucked me in and I had a hard time putting it down I liked Jayne, she seemed like a lost soul Her comment about Eric dying couldn t have come at a better time made me really like her I knew she wasn t trying to be mean, just that her life was in such a mess Her finding out that Eric left everything to her was interesting and funny at times Her way of dealing with things seem [...]

  28. Spectre

    The world in which Unclean Spirits exists offers a new twist on a well worn genre This world mixes science, paranormal, and religion, yet the author does not come across preachy or judgmental This world simply is, and that is the main strength of this novel The downfall is in the partially developed characters Jayn , the lead character, has an appealing first person voice that shows promise but lacks development because Jayn herself is not completely sure who she is While that might be acceptabl [...]

  29. Michelle

    Jayne s life turns upside down when her long lost uncle names her as the sole inheritor to his wealth, estates, and supernatural enemies.The reason I loved this book as much as I did was because of the main character Jayne was the perfect combination of smart, tough, and vulnerable I also felt a strong kinship because her upbringing and subsequent life choices were so similar to my own minus the rich uncle who hunted demons, lol I loved Jayne s progression from deadbeat dropout to woman with a p [...]

  30. marlene

    I picked this book up at least a dozen times in the store and the reviews always made me put it down i got it this week out of desperation, and i am so glad i did it was amazingly refreshing to see a heroine who does not say oh hi there you are a insert random monster here they exist oh ok lets be BFF and or have sex Jayn needed proof about the things that go bump in the night before she killed things or set her life completely upside down chasing them even then she hesitated even when Jayn was [...]
