LGBTQ, Urban Fantasy
When evil stirs in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, heroes come in both ordinary and extraordinary packages.
Ignatius Faber knows a few things for absolute certain. He's half-demon, his father is the unequivocal prince of darkness, and demons want to destroy his city. And if he doesn't make the first move on his crush, they're never going to be anything more than a teenage fantasy that's lasted into his thirties.
Lalo Pavia grew up hard and fast, orphaned at a young age. As an autistic, he's learned to approach life cautiously. He throws his energy into gardening and photography—allowing both to provide a buffer between himself and the rest of the world.
Except for Iggy.
Can they find triumph, life, and even love in the middle of a city in flames?
Their fight for the mile high city has just begun.

Childhood friends, a first crush turned into more, battles with demons, and more junk food than you can shake a stick at all done Dahlia Donovan style. HERE COMES THE SON is a little different than what I would normally expect from this author with its supernatural elements and loads of action, but it still has that same draw-you-in storytelling that she does so well.
Iggy and Lalo are terrific characters, and I couldn't help but root for them as they tiptoed around a relationship or defining said relationship. The connection between this pair is obvious from the start, and I absolutely loved Iggy's understanding of Lalo's needs, and his determination to put those needs ahead of everything else. As the parent of an autistic child, I always appreciate Ms. Donovan's attention to detail with autistic characters, and Lalo is no different. Lalo certainly has his triggers to deal with and they all ring true. I found myself smiling quite often as I read and recognized so many similarities to things I see every day. Seeing Lalo and Iggy grow toward a lasting relationship was heartwarming and fun.
In addition to our romantic couple, we get a whole cast of quirky and fun characters to enjoy. From Father Sal with his blatant hints to Wendy and her lab, and even the devil himself, Lucifer, the secondary characters are just as interesting and fun as Iggy and Lalo. Even the demons, bad as they are, have their own personalities and quirks that help keep the story moving.
This intriguing take on demons and the devil is a thoroughly entertaining story from beginning to end. It's a wonderful mix of action and danger tempered with witty dialogue and silly situations. I really liked the way things wrapped up even though I was left with some questions that have me hoping to see these characters again.
