Stephen Blackmoore's dark urban fantasy series follows necromancer Eric Carter through a world of vengeful gods and goddesses, mysterious murders, and restless ghosts.

Necromancer Eric Carter's problems keep getting bigger. Bad enough he's the unwilling husband to the patron saint of death, Santa Muerte, but now her ex, the Aztec King of the dead, Mictlantecuhtli, has come back -- and it turns out that Carter and he are swapping places. As Mictlantecuhtli breaks loose of his prison of jade, Carter is slowly turning to stone.

To make matters worse, both gods are trying to get Carter to assassinate the other. But only one of them can be telling him the truth and he can't trust either one. Carter's solution? Kill them both.

If he wants to get out of this situation with his soul intact, he'll have to go to Mictlan, the Aztec land of the dead, and take down a couple of death gods while facing down the worst trials the place has to offer him: his own sins.

We need more Eric Carter. From what I hear there's going to be more of him coming soon. I enjoyed reading this one as it ties up loose ends (some of them.)

Eric’s journey in this book has a more serious undertone and not a high flying adventure like the first ones. This one, well he’s just about at the end of his rope and he’s had it with being the pawn in the games of the Gods. Plus, well he’s turning to jade so that can’t be comfortable can it? So his journey into the underworld is pretty serious at this point. I enjoyed reading the descriptions of the underworld. I can’t get over the “Mad Max” cars (because that’s the first thing I thought when I read the description!). I thought it was well done and what an underworld really should be.

The ending was good. It did tie up various loose ends and it seems like the series stops there.It’s nice that he closes everything that’s been following him all throughout the first three books so I think he’s ready for another set of getting beaten up to a pulp :D more demons please!!!!

Probably my least favourite of the three books to date, but it's hard to put my finger on exactly why. Still, I was glad to finally get my hands on Hungry Ghosts after it was delayed for a complete rewrite. The Santa Muerte storyline/ arc is wrapped up nicely (loved the ending!), but it still feels like there's plenty of room for further books in the series.
