Urban Fantasy Review: Afterlife by Naomi Clark

Afterlife by Naomi Clark

 won from Bastard Books

Synopsis from Goodreads
Yasmin Stoker is a ghost tour guide who spends her days showing tourists around Shoregrave's haunted hotspots. She also happens to be a wraith who spends her nights hunting Revenants, newly-risen flesh-eating vampires.

 On one of her regular hunts, she witnesses a mysterious ghostly girl pulling the body of a teenage boy underground. Who and what is this girl, and why is she attacking men around the city?

 Yasmin investigates, but it quickly becomes clear that somebody wants to keep her from finding the killer and they'll do anything including ambushing her with ghouls and cacodaemons to stop her.

 With only a persistent private eye and a taciturn vampire (one of the Immaculate, no less) to help her, Yasmin must deal with fanatical necromancers, crazed ghosts, and a sexy history teacher in her quest to solve the mystery. And along the way she uncovers some heartbreaking truths about her own existence.

 Actually, this is a very decent urban fantasy which reminded me of La Vida Vampire by Nancy Haddock.

Yasmin is a wraith who likes her peace and quiet, she is a bit antisocial actually and keeps a low profile which is a necessity in all her 600 years of living. She does ghost tours around Shoregrave so she won't get bored, has a buddy succubus and does a bidding of a crazy Lich Lord, an immortal unhinged necromancer.

She's got her routine of sucking the souls out of Revenants to keep her energy up and never hunts normal people when one night she sees a weird ghost of a girl which drags innocent people to Hell. Shocked and determined to stop her, Yasmin starts her investigation into this strange bloodthirsty spirit, acquiring a stubborn human private detective and a seductive ancient vampire as her partners in the process.

Of course there is more to it than it seems. Innocent girls get murdered in an ancient sacrifice, the great war is brewing in hell dimensions and her own Lich Lord it seems completely lost the plot...

Slightly unhinged, gory and sometimes pretty disgusting, funny and full of potential, - I say give Afterlife a go!

  Неплохая книга. Определенно не худшая городская фантастика, что я когда-либо читала.

Ясмин - 600-летняя пожирательница душ, живёт в Шоргрэйв и чтобы не умереть от скуки, работает гидом по призрачным турам города. Они живёт тихо, питается душами молодых вампиров, которые ничуть не лучше гулей и пожирают всё на своём пути, её лучшая подруга - суккуб, а её босс - полусумасшедший Лич Лорд и бессмертный некромант.

Тихая жизнь подходит к концу, когда Ясмин видит как кровожадный дух девочки затаскивает людей в ад на её глазах. Теперь по приказу своего Лич Лорда она пытается остановить призрака и на своём пути приобретает  двух партнёров - усталого пьяницу частного детектива и сооблазнительного вампира. 

Теперь её личная жизнь и секс с привлекательным учителем по истории катятся к чёрту, её босс совсем срывается с катушек, а в мире демонов назревает очередная война...

Интересно, иногда смешно, кроваво и немного повёрнуто. Советую, ибо чувствуется потенциал.
