I’ve had this book on the shelf for a long time (years) and finally gotten around to reading it. During the introduction we meet Eric Heller, Jayné’s uncle, who is trying to meet up with a less than savory guy in a sleazy bar. Ultimately, Eric doesn’t survive the meeting but this is the reader’s first introduction into “riders”, evil spirits that have taken over or attached themselves to human beings.
Chapter One introduces us to Jayné, who really didn’t know much about her uncle other than he would occasionally swoop into her life and then swoop back out, but now Jayné has inherited Eric’s estate and his substantial assets.
Throughout the rest of the book we watch Jayné learn about riders, the supernatural, and how she plans to avenge Eric’s murder. Ultimately we watch her mature and start to take responsibility for her actions and choices.
The entire book is really a long introduction to Jayné and a cast of characters many of whom I assume will continue through the series. Although I enjoyed the book and the story was interesting I find that I am not drawn to either enough to continue reading the series, which is why I only rated this story as "ok".
