Bane, in her debt, allows Siggy to escape - for now. Newly homeless, jobless, and perpetually friendless, Siggy takes the one avenue open to her; she travels to Alaska to meet the grandfather who has reached out to her. Siggy isn't sure what kind of reunion she might expect, but she certainly isn't prepared for the reality of Alaska, shabby and breathtaking at once, or the complicated dance of adoption reunion. Or fish head soup. Or a whirlpool in the river that leads to the Underworld...and the answers to questions she didn't even know she had. In order to learn who - and what - she really is, and in order to spare her young niece the same fate she'd suffered as a child, Siggy must travel to the Underworld and meet the grandmother who'd been waiting there for her, become a raven, trick a witch, and convince an arch-demon to make her a weapon fit for a hero.

Best New Urban Fantasy in Years
This book was AMAZING. Brilliant narration. The humor, the way the narrator portrays various characters totally brought them to life for me. The pacing and plotting in this book are brilliant. As usual in most urban fantasy, we learn things as the main character does, however the author gives us a strong wonderful female lead who thinks things through, asks questions, acts and makes decisions. There is no romance in this book either, this is pure urban fantasy which was SO refreshing. The character does make comments about good looking guys she meets, but it is all in passing, they have more serious matters on their mind.
I really hope this is a series. Have not read urban fantasy this good since Jim Butcher.
