"Who knew that there was still something different left out there?"

Waking up naked on a cold slab in the morgue isn't a nice experience. Evangeline Stone finds herself in a stranger's body with no memory of how she got there. Her last days alive as Evageline are missing and she doesn't know who she can trust. However she does know that the trouble is just beginning. All this couldn't have happened for no reason and she is sure that no good can come of it.

The last thing Evy can remember is that the other two members of her Triad were killed while trying to clean up the city of vampires and other dregs. Soon Evy finds out that she was the main suspect in their murders and was obviously set up in more ways than one. Now Evy has a new body and the time she has left in it is quickly fading. Piecing together the last days of her life isn't easy and trying to solve your own murder isn't a walk in the park. However when Evy finds out who is behind everything, they won't see her coming.

The blurb for this book gave me goosebumps and I proclaimed it a must buy. While waiting for the book to arrive I only found good reviews about this one and my eagerness to read it grew. Now after I have finished reading Three Days to Dead I have to say a big 'WOW'.

This debut opens up a whole new world. The fresh and unique concept is not only interesting but well thought out. Great characters, amazing plot and action packed pages is what awaits the reader of this new paranormal writing genius. Who knew that there was still something different left out there? The genre is just getting more and more diverse and exciting!

Now I am left intrigued about what will come next. Kelly Meding has created something good and I hope the next book in the series will keep the pace and not make this a one time fluke. If you are feeling the boredom of the usual Urban Paranormal Fantasy books and need some new life in your reading then this is the one to check out!

Life is short, but death is forever�until someone buys a spell to bring you back.

In a city teeming with paranormal creatures, Dreg Bounty Hunters work to protect oblivious citizens and keep the various species under control�by any means necessary. Evangeline Stone is one of the best, known and feared by Dregs all over the city; until she wakes up in the morgue, in a new and recently-dead body, with no short-term memory, and no idea how she died or why she was brought back.

Wyatt Truman, a Gifted human and former co-worker, arranged her temporary resurrection. He believes she was murdered for information about a rumored alliance between ruling Vampire Families and the Goblin Hordes�an alliance that could prove devastating to humans and their other supernatural allies. And she only has three days to stop it before she dies again. As she digs deeper into the events leading up to her death and learns the devastating price Wyatt paid for her resurrection, Evy realizes she's fighting for more than human dominance of the paranormal food chain. She's also fighting for both of their souls.
