A latch-key kid raised in Central Florida, Michele found the world outside her house boring, so she lived inside shows about futuristic worlds, fantastic places. Star Trek, Bewitched, Night Stalker, Logan's Run. Naturally, she found her future in alternate realities. She's keeping it unreal. She writes Paranormal/Sci-Fi Romantic Adventure with a little Erotic Suspense and Greek Myth Fantasy Comedy. Her favorite writers are Katie Macalister for laughs, Angela Knight for heat, and Jennifer Estep for superheroes. Michele still lives in sunny Florida with her family and her five-pound poodle, Twinkle.

I liked this book from the beginning. Sure, I had a few problems keeping the names straight (not uncommon with me when characters have nicknames that have nicknames) (also, when people can jump bodies. That just flummoxes me.) but I liked how dark and dangerous this world was. You never know who to trust or who's telling the truth or, when they are telling the truth, how much they're leaving out. It makes all their interactions so deliciously tense.
Danny was intriguing. Faith was almost too focused on getting her story (to the point where she was doing stupid things and risking her life). The two of them together certainly knew how to tear up the sheets. The other I-Marshals were fun, sexy, and full of awesome. The bad guys were bad in a way that made serial killers look like harmless kittens. Although (if I'm being completely honest), the good guys had their moments of darkness, too. Dark darkness. The type that leaves blood splatter and viscera in its wake.
Probably my biggest complaint (next to not being able to remember which nicknames belonged to which character -- which is entirely a me-thing), is that when I went to hunt down what order these books were in, I couldn't figure it out. This was more to satisfy my own curiosity, mind you, since this book does work without knowing the world. I like to read series I enjoy in order to get the full effect. I'm crazy like that.
Enjoyable, dark, dangerous, and full of blood and guts. And demons. And angels.
