Review - Devil's Bargain by Rachel Caine

What's the price of a deal with the devil?

Playing by the psychic underworld's rules has cost..

Jazz Callender's whole life just got turned upside down. Her friend Ben's been convicted of a crime he didn't commit, and Jazz is determined to clear his name, even if it means enlisting the help of dark forces.

Enter James, a stranger with a mysterious offer. If Jazz pledges to work for The Cross Society, a shadowy secret organisation, he'll help her save Ben.

But as she's thrust into a world of psychic powers and dangerous magic, Jazz isn't just bargain for her friend's freedom. She's bargaining for her soul too.

And how high a price is she willing to pay?

A great book, Confusing, but still a great book. I love Rachel Caine and own a few of her books. How ever this book left me wondering what was going on. 1st thing that through me off a little bit was the level of ... for a lack of a better word right now... macho-ism was completely switch. I found Borden, sexy, but very Sissy, and Jazz tougher then nails. But opposites do attract, right? He kinda grows on you after awhile. Anyways The Plot and pace was another place I had some problem getting into it. there was a lot of setting up of the investigating business, and not too much action going on. There was a hint of romance. I was hoping it would go on a little more, but it ended. So my conclusion is maybe this is just a book to set up the series. The writing style was excellent. I have the 2nd book. Both provided for an honest review, so Stay tuned to see what the next book has in store.

Rating 3 Stars.
