I'm reading an urban fantasy,  "Shattered" by Kevin Hearne. This is one of my favorite series, a perfect blend of mythology, urban fantasy, action, drama, humor, and excellent story-telling. The quote is from page 56 in the hardcover.

Laksha darts into the house to retrieve what I suppose must be called her exorcism kit, along with my  staff, and to offer a hurried farewell to the family. I squat down next to my hound and scratch behind her ears, trying to think of something that might hold a stronger psychic signature of my dad than the shattered remains of that clay vessel.


  1. Sounds like a fun series. I'm reading First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones at the moment, and her protagonist also mentions an exorcism
