WARNING: I am reviewing series books. While this review contains no spoilers for this book, it probably contains spoilers for previous volumes in this series. It’s the nature of the beast.

Pure Dead Batty Debi Glori

Well, the body count of the last few books has tipped off the big wigs down in Glasgow, so they've come and arrested Luciano as a serial murderer. Mrs. McLachlan is still missing, but mysterious clues keep turning up to give the family hope. (She's trapped in a place-out-of-time with Isagoth, slowly forgetting what she left behind.) Meanwhile, Damp is learning how to fly. Also, S'Tan has gotten unbelievably fat and little good, as the removal of the Chromostone from Earth means he can no longer use to it amp his power, so he's losing his evil touch and turning to food for comfort.

Well, it's going to be a showdown between Luciano and Lucifer, when all is said and done. These books are steadily less and less funny, and, as the universe is well-established, it loses it's zany factor, but I've formed an attachment to the characters and am looking forward to seeing what happens next!
