I completely enjoyed Lies & Omens - Sylvie is one tough lady.
-Michelle's Book Blog


Sylvie Lightner is a P.I. specializing in the unusual—in a world where magic is real, and Hell is just around the corner.

After escaping secret government cells and destroying a Miami landmark, Sylvie’s trying to lay low—something that gets easier when a magical force starts taking out her enemies. But these magical attacks are a risk to bystanders, and Sylvie can’t let that slide.   

When the war between the government and the magical world threatens the three people closest to her—her assistant, her sister, and her lover—Sylvie has no choice but to get involved with hidden powers bent on shaping the world to their liking. Now, with death and disaster on the horizon, even if Sylvie wins, things will never be the same...

The familiar plot and characters sadly suggest that Benedict has entirely given up on attempting innovation.

That's What I'm Talking About

Reviewed by Gikany-Una on May 23 2012

...halfway through Lies & Omens the plot picks up and takes off!  It is completely engrossing partly because it gets horribly complicated, but also because it is entirely fascinating.

I really liked how LIES & OMENS ended. It felt like all the key players are finally on the same side in the same fight.
