In the mean streets of York, the stakes just got higher – and even pointier.
Jessica Grant liaises with Otherworlders for York Council so she knows that falling in love with a vampire takes a leap of faith. But her lover Sil, the City Vampire in charge of Otherworld York, he wouldn’t run out on her, would he? He wouldn’t let his demon get the better of him. Or would he?
Sil knows there’s a reason for his bad haircut, worse clothes and the trail of bleeding humans in his wake. If only he could remember exactly what he did before someone finds him and shoots him on sight.
With her loyalties already questioned for defending zombies, the Otherworlders no one cares about, Jess must choose which side she’s on, either help her lover or turn him in. Human or Other? Whatever she decides, there’s a high price to pay – and someone to lose.

…It’s important to note that this is the second book in the series. Miraculously (it seems) for the Urban Fantasy genre, it stands very well on its own. While mystery and the workings of the supernatural world play a big (and interesting) part in this book, the focus is on Jessica Grant herself. A reader follows her emotional journey as she loses herself to doubt and despair, and then finds herself again. A true kickass heroine, Jessica, because the most difficult battles are almost always internal.

Jess and Sil are back. This time bigger and better. “Falling apart” picks up where Vampire state of mind leaves off. I thought Vampire state of mind would be a hard act to follow, but Jane Lovering expands her original world with new characters and new problems.
This latest instalment of an alternative history, York introduces zombies, like you have never seen before and new foes like the the “Britain for Humans” movement. As always, Jane Lovering brings new meaning to the phrase demon seed.
What made this book stand out for me, is that Jess and Sil’s relationship is of a realistic nature. Love does not always conqueror all when there are impossible issue to overcome. “Falling apart” never sugar coats or pretends that things will magically work out without putting in the hard graft.
Sil struggles with his demon symbiote and it is a constant fight for him not to let it take over and this creates the tension with his relationship with Jess. While Sil is “off doing vampire things”, Jess is torn between the man she loves and her job.
This is not your ordinary Vampire story. “Falling Apart”will make you laugh out loud and engage with the characters to the point where you yell at the book; willingly them to stop being so stubborn and do what their hearts tell them is the right thing to do.
Jane Lovering infuses her story with her trademark witty and sarcasm with Lovecraftian influences and creates a world that is so unique, that it makes Falling apart un-put-down-able. It is my suggestion that you read “Vampire State of mind” first before “Falling apart- I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
