Excellent urban fantasy from a reliably enjoyable author

Like all BR Kingsolver books, the heroine is smart, interesting, talented, yet avoids the Mary Sue trope that so many urban fantasy heroines fall victim too.
The lead character, Danica, is a cop from one of the ten chief families on an Earth that has had nuclear war, a demon invasion, vampires- yet still manages to be familiar.
The characters are interesting, the story engaging. While it’s not left on a cliffhanger, it is definitely left with a sense that the sequel is going to be incredible.
Mostly romance free not because the main character is anti romance, but just because it’s definitely not the time and place.
