In a town full of vampires, mages, and werewolves, detective work can be dangerous: "Dark and sexy . . . a paranormal treat" (Lara Adrian, New York Times -bestselling author).

Shiarra Waynest's job was dangerous enough when her client base was strictly mortal. But ailing finances have forced her to accept a lucrative case that could save her firm--if it doesn't kill her first. Shiarra has signed on to work for a high-level mage to recover an ancient artifact owned by one of New York's most powerful vampires.

As soon as the detective meets the sexy, mesmerizing vampire Alec Royce, she knows her assignment is even more complicated than she thought. With a clandestine anti-Other group trying to recruit her and magi being eliminated, Shiarra needs backup. She enlists her ex-boyfriend--a werewolf whose non-furry form is disarmingly appealing--and a nerdy mage with surprising talents. But it may not be enough. In a city where the undead roam, magic rules, and even the Others aren't always what they seem, Shiarra has just become the secret weapon in a battle between good and evil--whether she likes it or not.

This fast-moving urban fantasy is "a fun, high octane ride with a take charge heroine who will leave you wanting more" (Alexandra Ivy, New York Times- bestselling author).

"Take a sarcastic, likable heroine out of her depth with a mysterious, seductive vampire, add lots of scheming bad guys, and you've got a delightful romp of a book." --Angela Knight, New York Times- bestselling author

"Full of litigious vampires, sexy shapeshifters and a mage sidekick akin to Bond's Q, what more could you want?" --Mark Henry, author of Battle of the Network Zombies

"Fresh, hilarious, and action-packed. I loved every minute of it." --Lilith Saintcrow, New York Times -bestselling author of the Dante Valentine series

Had a hard time getting started but once in it couldn't put it down. Great story and starting the second book.

Quirky, with a sarcastic and understated sense of humour, a both personal and societal conflicts. It's a good tale, with some of what sci-fi and fantasy does best: addresses issues through a paranormal lense: this one: racism and tolerance.

If you like a book about how family drives you crazy, how friends (the good ones) are there for you, and how a single decision snowballs into something you've never expected: well, it's for you!

A great first book! Shiarra Waynest is a private investigator who get's blackmailed into working for the witches. They want her to help them find a artifact that could start a war between the Other races. The witches think that the oldest vampire in the city, Alec Royce, has the artifact. But when Shia starts investigating, people start dying and various groups try to recruit her into the war. Shia just wants to be left alone and it will take some fancy moves, both legal and martial, to get out of this. Good thing she's got some awesome friends.
