Vicious Grace by M.L.N. Hanover

Tuesday, November 22, 2011
When you’re staring evil in the eye, don’t forget to watch your back . . .
For the first time in forever, Jayné Heller’s life is making sense. Even if she routinely risks her life to destroy demonic parasites that prey on mortals, she now has friends, colleagues, a trusted lover, and newfound confidence in the mission she inherited from her wealthy, mysterious uncle. Her next job might just rob her of all of them. At Grace Memorial Hospital in Chicago, something is stirring. Patients are going AWOL and research subjects share the same sinister dreams. Half a century ago, something was buried under Grace in a terrible ritual, and it’s straining to be free. Jayné is primed to take on whatever’s about to be let loose. Yet the greatest danger now may not be the huge, unseen force lurking below, but the evil that has been hiding in plain sight all along—taking her ever closer to losing her body, her mind, and her soul. . . .

Goodreads Summary

Jayne has matured in this novel.  The reader will love the author's slow development of the characters.  Jayne is dealing with two main plots at the moment.  She is jealous of Aubrey's ex-wife, Kim, and still friendly with her and she has to deal with whatever is trying to escape from underneath a hospital.  Whatever was entrapped underneath the hospital was placed there due to a strange and unnatural ritual.  Jayne is constantly dodging danger and life-threatening evils.  There is no end to action in this book-either slightly romantic or the more common horror types. 

Jayne continues her uncle's legacy, it is endearing how much this seems to mean to her.  Jayne will likely have warmed the reader up to her by now, but it definitely takes some time.  The disappearance of the hospital's patients and the disturbing dreams of the research patients will be fascinating to the reader.  This book is recommended to young adults/adults.
