Book Summary: As a former Agent of Death, Madeline Black is no stranger to witnessing violent ends. But being the one to cause them is an entirely different story…

Despite her having saved Chicago from a vampire invasion, the Agency wants to get Maddy off their payroll—permanently. With the deadly Retrievers hot on her trail, she has no choice but to trust Nathaniel to port her to safety. But even the exotic and dangerous world that she winds up in is not as peaceful as she would have hoped. Caught in a turf war between a group of fae and a disturbingly familiar foe, Maddy soon discovers that the twisted plots of her grandfather, Lucifer, and his brothers extend even into this unknown realm.

Julia's Thoughts:
Christina Henry hit another bad ass home run in the sixth installment of her Black Wings series. Black Heart is dark, sexy and full of surprises- any Urban Fantasy lover's dream come true. I COULD NOT put this one down! Christina Henry always knows how to put a fresh spin on her next Maddy Black adventure.

Maddy never slows down in Black Heart, the plot just keeps getting juicier. New villains and old villains show their faces. I almost began to feel bad for Maddy as she never gets a break from the bad guys. It is undeniably entertaining and satisfying to see her kick ass. And not a single character in the Black Wings series has stopped evolving, they all continue to keep you guessing. And in Black Heart Madeline and her gang of misfits will continue to make you laugh, cry and root for them against the impossible. New (awesome!) character alert- Uncle Daharan. I'm not going to delve into his character except that he is fascinating. Read this book so you can experience these characters!! 

I love Madeline's courage and her growing confidence in her powers.  Beezle may not like the new Maddy, but I do! I know everyone misses Gabriel- I don't. But Maddy (and Gabriel fans) will get some closure in Black Heart. I could have done without the "closure" because I have been rooting for Nathaniel since Black Night (see here!) and I AM SO EXCITED that it seems Maddy is finally ready to move on and maybe root for Nathaniel with me. He is still a wee bit mysterious, totally bad ass, completely arrogant and delicious. He goes through a lot of changes and I love what his character has become over the course of this series. His interactions with Maddy are so adorable. I reallllllly hope that their relationship continues to grow. 

Black Heart is dark, intense and a turning point in the Black Wings series. If you're looking for a sexy, brilliantly witty urban fantasy with toe curling action, dangerous plots and complex characters - read this book. I hope Christina Henry keeps writing many more in the Madeline Black series, I LOVE these characters. I can't wait to see what she throws at Maddy in the next novel and this series will continue to be on my MUST BUY list! So get out there and order this book, it is SO GOOD!
