"This book gets straight into things and doesn't mess around"
For five years Kita Nekai has hidden in the human world.
In the city of Haven a rogue shifter is leaving bodies all
over the place. When the Hunters finally find Kita in
Haven, her illegal status means she is high on the suspect
list. Confronted by the Hunters she doesn't see a way out
until the mysterious Nathanial Deaton comes to her rescue.
Kita thought being rescued meant you came out of something
alive. However her rescuer has left her undead. With only
two nights to prove she is not the rogue shifter
responsible for the spate of killings, she teams up with
the only help she has. Stuck with her rescuer and someone
from her past who would prefer to take her home, they go
against the clock and some baddies to put things right.
No explanations, no easing the reader into things and
certainly no introduction. This book gets straight into
things and doesn't mess around. With action from the very
first page this book is a non-stop paranormal mystery
ride. Different from the genre norm in some aspects it
also has some familiar elements as not to confuse the
A strong, stubborn and feisty female main character and
some gutsy helpers dominate this debut book. However I
think Kita has more secrets to tell and I am definitely
willing to read more about her and to find out what else
this new paranormal series has to offer.
