Readers definitely need to read the other Project Exorcism books before reading Civil Twilight. The hero Stegian is none other than the villain from the other books in the series.

I like it when a book does not go in the obvious direction. The hero and heroine of Civil Twilight fit into that little niche. Stegian and Jacquelyn are certainly nontraditional lead characters. The villain and Janelle who has been in a coma for the past twelve years are the main characters for this one.

Jacquelyn and how her character went from comatose Janelle to very knowledgeable female after her man was somewhat unclear. The way that Jacquelyn was taken through this transition enlightens us to why Stegian wanted her family wiped off the planet. I liked how that worked out. Stegian’s demon and Stegian’s sometime bipolar reactions now make complete sense.

I loved that we readers got to see what was going through Stegian’s mind as the ship he was being exiled on crashed and left him in the predicament he found himself in. He was one of the supernatural beings that Earth was ridding themselves of. Other than the information about Project Exorcism provided at the beginnings of each book, the prologue in this book was very insightful as to what happened to the supernatural beings.  

This is the last of the unmated/single Janelle siblings that readers have followed from the beginning of the Project Exorcism series. That means that Mandy is going to have to go find those banished siblings in the far reaches of space. I’m looking forward to where her writing will take us. The possibilities are endless.
