That’s probably why, when a customer offers him way too much money just to locate a missing car and some mysterious cargo, he readily agrees. The dude is human after all—Ty’s prime target client base. Along with the money comes a slew of disappearances which Ty tries to ignore while tracking down that car, because, of course, those missing people might be demon related, and as he’s said before, that’s agency business. Not his. Period. Until today. Ty Burdin is to back drinking as well as everything he vowed never to get involved with again. Question is, which one will kill him first? The booze, the demons, or the Agency?...

Burdin of Choice Reviews
Once again Ty Burdin has me wrapped up and unable to close the book on his badass, smart witted, completely endearing nature. There is something so basic and pure about the way Alexander Nader breathes life into this character that it almost takes me back a step, and make me pause while I'm reading, just to take in what Ty has said. The simple, yet eloquent, while being utterly sarcastic, and also funny, way Nader portrays Ty is a skill I have yet to see done in the way Nader does it and makes this story hard to put down.At the end of Beasts of Burdin, book #1 in the trilogy, I wasn't sure where the second installment in the series would go, or how it would get there, but Burdin of Choice picks up at a run, and keeps running. The book has meat. It has emotion. It has heart. Ty is someone you want to know. Well done.Can't wait for book 3.
Ty Burdin is in a very bad place. It is quite obvious he is burned out and just wants to quietly drink himself into an early grave. He is basically a straight shooter who has been repeatedly lied to and taken advantage of by his (former) employer. Ty is disillusioned – fed up with killing monsters for an ungrateful agency that has never played fair. In fact, in Ty’s experience , some of the worse demons are the deceitful humans who somehow trick him into doing their dirty work. He is having none of that this time – come hell or high water. His patience with the bureaucracy and the self-serving jackasses within the Agency is non-existent. Ty refuses to do any more jobs and the body count escalates while he continues his self-destructive downward spiral.In this book the legendary demon hunter finds out that walking away from an unpleasant job is not an option when the demons inside are as destructive as the ones wreaking havoc all around him. This book had me mesmerized; I felt like I was watching a train wreck, unable to look away. I understand Ty’s extreme resistance to help such a corrupt and bloated bunch of ungrateful sycophants, but I wanted him to stop wallowing in depression and find a purpose. The excess boozing really bothered me at times. I hope Ty finds the courage within himself to better compartmentalize these self-destructive behaviors, finding a much needed balance within himself. Not all monsters are easily recognizable. Ty has a unique understanding of evil in its many forms. I want him to figure out how he can best use his talents while foiling the less than honorable plans and actions of an out of control leadership.This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.Reviewed by Laurie-J
Quickie review:Ty Burdin is back in this sequel to Beasts of Burdin. Whilst a little of his snark and quick-comeback-wit is less prominent through most of this book, his somber mood and personal issues he's dealing with give a very good reason for that. I will say, though, that his wit does slowly begin to reappear the closer to the end we get. But fear not, because where Ty's snark is hiding, Nora's is stepping up to the plate and providing impressive swings of the bat in its place. I loved Nora's character in Beasts of Burdin, and I loved her even more within here. She sounds absolutely gorgeous, as nutty as a fruitcake (she has to be to put up with Ty as a boss) but creepily wise and intelligent, and keeps our Ty pretty much afloat. Not to mention there is definitely some very delicately woven romantic undertones between these two in this sequel--which makes me happy to no end. Also, Ty's brother, Hartnet, makes more than one reappearance, which will definitely keep the ladies who're keen on him happy. I love how the two brothers end up fighting back to back again. I also loved the opportunity to see Burdin's TRUE potential when he ends up fighting with the most unlikely ally, during which some MASSIVE in-your-face hints are dropped that there just might be some interesting reveals about our Ty in the next book. Oh, and I can't help but wonder how Ty's new neighbour might slot into the grand scheme of things, too.All in all, another decent addition to this series, with twists, sleuthing, mysteries, action, dodginess and, of course, demons.
This is such a fantastic series! Ty Burdin is just bad ass. Plus he sometimes has no filter and I love his craziness. At the end of book one, I couldn't wait to get my hands on book two. I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. Ty has a lot more personal demons to deal with this time. I am still so glad that I read the first book, because I see the changes in Ty from the beginning of the first book. And yes, his great sarcastic ass self is a little more on the back burner than in the first book, but it's not lost, Ty just as a lot going on. He's back in action hunting demons, solving mysteries, and investigating things. He still has more shades of grey than black and white, but that's real life and I love that it feels real. Nora is so totally fantastic. I loved her in the first book, and I think I love her even more with this book. I would love to see what Mr Nader pictures his characters as. Because I bet Nora is amazing to view. Maybe I should have asked for a dream cast instead of a soundtrack hahahaha :) Plus, she's freaking crazy and I absolutely love that about her. I am seriously hoping for some serious romantic things between Ty and Nora to come :) And Hartnet, Ty's awesome brother is back too. I love that they are big parts of Ty's story. This one is once again action packed, grab your seat and hold on tight full of suspense, and a wonderful bit of humor thrown in to keep you on your toes :) I love the mysteries unraveled as well. I love this series and I can't wait for more! 5 PAWS!!
Ty’s stubborn determination to turn his back on demons, this time around, was good news/bad news for me as a reader. On the one hand, there was the off-color entertainment of Ty repeatedly letting everyone around him know just how far down under the Agency could stick their agenda, as far as he cared. But on the other, his avoidance of anything that even smelled of demon amounted to him avoiding much buildup of a plot. It took most of the book before there was any real edge-of-your-seat action of the sort that kept pages turning in the first volume of the series. Nonetheless, the smart-aleck narration did a bit to help smooth over the pacing issues and kept me from boredom; I continued to enjoy Ty’s relationship with colorful secretary Nora and cool cop brother Hartnet; and the concluding chapters suggest that there’s plenty in store for Burdin and company in the trilogy’s final installment. I’m looking forward to it!
