The Better Part of DarknessOh, and if y'all work at the FTC? FYI: I did get this book for free. It came to me as wee free digital bits via email. And yes, I'm wholly guilty of having pimped it to anyone who sat still long enough to listen.

Now Atlanta is a crossroads for all sorts of creatures, and the Integration Task Force keeps tabs on them all. Recently resurrected single mom Charlie Madigan juggles her personal life with her career as an ITF officer, searching for the source of a deadly narcotic called ash. When her family and friends are caught in the middle of her investigation, Charlie discovers powers she never knew, and a destiny that could destroy the entire world. How far will she go to save her child and her city? Intricate world-building and richly complex characters mix with a fast-paced plot to create a standout start to a new series. (Dec.)
