Synopsis (Goodreads):
The worst case scenario has happened: Reno NV has fallen to demons. Someone at the Office of Preternatural Affairs screwed up.

As the lead of a secret internal investigations team, Agent Cesar Hawke needs to discover who is responsible. And then he needs to kill them.
Thoughts on Once Darkness Falls: I always feel for Cesar when I get back into his books. He's a good guy caught up in a bad situation. I honestly don't know who he should be trusting at this point and I can't imagine how he's going to weather the coming storms. I mean, Reno falling to demons is only the first level of crazy on its way. There's so SO much more.

I do get a kick out of seeing some of the very important peeps from the other series popping up here. Sure, Cesar isn't seeing Elise at her best (her being dead and all), but Elise never let a pesky thing like death slow her down. I mean, this time it did because she's all dead and stuff but... what were we talking about again?

(I'm going to take a moment to remind everyone that if you haven't read the Descent or Ascension series, you're totally missing out on how utterly badass Elise is. She's also borderline crazy. Except when she's all the way crazy, but that's another story.)

But let's get back to Cesar. He has a noble streak a mile wide and he's been put in a tough situation this time around. Things don't look good on a lot of levels. Again, I can only imagine it's going to get much, much worse before the poor guy figures out where he stands in all this. Plus, there's the awkwardness of his attraction to his best friend and boss's lady friend. Poor Cesar.
