Explosions, body parts, and black magic are all part of Abby Collins’ typical day. As the top Paranormal Investigation Bureau agent, she only gets the best cases, but when the Cult of Ra comes to play she might be in over her head. Finding a murderer while up against a hex, an overprotective coven, and a stubborn werewolf reminds her that nothing in the paranormal world is easy. As the death toll rises and a decades old crime, linked to Abby, is uncovered, disturbing information is brought to light. Abby must unlock an ancient language steeped in black magic to uncover the truth before the murderer comes for her.
Abby was orphaned at a very young age when her parents are killed by the a cult and raised by Levi- a powerful vampire. Now It seems Abby’s past is coming back to haunt her. The cult that killed her parents and now the bodies are piling up and someone is targeting her. She is stuck between the word of the law and the world of Vampire Law- she treads a very fine line. Throw in the local pack and a possible love interest with the beta and you have all you need for a great night reading a great book!
I can not say enough great things about this book. The world that A.L. builds is not only Magical but its also believable and amazing! I have had an empty cold hole in my heart since the Hollows series by Kim Harrison ended and can I just say Abby shoved herself into that hole and made it Abby sized. She is just the girl to take over my love of Rachel Morgan. She is sassy, spunky and smart and SO NOT the heroine in distress. She kicks ass and doesn’t give a crap what your name is because she’s that much of a bad ass. In the introduction to Abby’s world of mishaps and magic s*** is hitting the fan or shall I say body parts are hitting the fan! YES BODY PARTS! I wont go into too much detail not to spoil things but someones dragging up Abby’s past and it isn’t in a warm fuzzies kind of way… RUN don’t walk to your ereader and do yourself a favor pick this book up today and early because you just might be up all night!
