Book Description

*Book 1 in the Rylee Adamson Series*


"My name is Rylee and I am a Tracker."

When children go missing, and the Humans have no leads, I'm the one they call. I am their last hope in bringing home the lost ones. I salvage what they cannot.


I'm on the FBI's wanted list.

I have a werewolf for a pet, a Witch of a best friend, and have no need for anyone else in my life.

But when a salvage starts to spin out of control, help comes from a most unexpected direction.

One that is dangerously dark, brooding, and doesn't know a thing about the supernatural.

One whose kisses set me on fire.

    5.0 out of 5 stars So, when's the next one? November 14, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Have you ever made a big Thanksgiving dinner (bear with me... I'm working towards a point, here)? You end up cooking for days- the pies, the turkey, the stuffing, the sides, appetizers, and it is exhausting to put on this beautiful spread that you have made and are proud of. What do you get for all of your work? The sounds of chomping and smacking and groaning for about 20 minutes as all of your hard work is devoured in FAR less time than it took to make, then wide eyes looking at you asking what you are making for Christmas dinner! Because I have been through that, I can appreciate how Ms. Mayer must feel when after all her hard work I devour this book in a single night (cause, really- who needs sleep?)and have the nerve to ask "So, when's the next one? It's almost ready, right?" Believe me... you will be, too.

    Rylee has a special gift, and she uses it to find lost children. Kids that the police and FBI can't. No matter where they are taken, no matter who or what has taken them. O'Shea is an FBI agent, and he is extremely suspicious of Rylee's success where the FBI often fails. That is, until he gets a good look at the things she deals with... Love love loved the main story, loved the supporting characters (a werewolf for a pet= awesome!). Cannot wait to revisit the cast in the next book. Really- consider this my wide eyed begging look asking "What's for Christmas dinner?" in hopes of a sequel that soon! Get the book, you'll see what I mean!

    One last thing- I really appreciate the time and effort put into the proofreading and editing of Shannon Mayer's books. Typos, punctuation, redundant turns of phrase all pull a reader out of the story- but I do understand that at times it is a price we readers pay when we get more reasonably priced indie authors.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Diary of a Bibliophile Review November 20, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    So my hubby walked in last night to find me laying on the floor of the living room laughing over my Kindle. If that isn't the sign of a good book, I don't know what is.

    Priceless is the perfect blend of everything I like in a book--a kick-ass heroine, intriguing mystery, an assortment of paranormal creatures, well-timed comic relief and a red hot lust/hate relationship.

    Rylee is my kind of heroine. She has supernatural talent, yet is fallibly human. I like that things don't always go her way...well ever. But whether she is leading high speed car chases running from the law, fighting harpies with her trusty blades or going toe-to-toe with magic wielding kidnappers, she's somehow able to maintain her softness--or maybe a better word is compassion. After having been abandoned first by her biological parents and again by her adoptive parents, Rylee knows what it's like to be alone in the world. As a result, she has dedicated her whole life to helping those in need. It goes deeper than just rescuing missing children; she is like a beacon to those in need. This adds a surprising amount of emotional depth to the story.

    Regular readers of my reviews know I'm all about the love story. My favorites are those that are able to balance lust, affection and antagonism. The relationship between Rylee and Agent O'Shea has all of these elements. Our first introduction to O'Shea is as the FBI agent who has been trying for ten years to prove Rylee murdered her little sister. She didn't do it, but O'Shea is too haunted by the unsolved case to see past his prejudice against Rylee. When the tables turn and he is forced to place his trust in her, O'Shea finds everything he has even known about the world turned upside down. I loved the way the author handled this relationship.

    3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok November 26, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    It wasn't the worst urban fantasy I've ever read (and let's be honest, there is an unfortunate amount of crap in the UF genre) but it wasn't particularly good either. I think there were a lot of interesting concepts--the fairly unique take on werewolves or the heroine's abilities, as examples--but ultimately there were a couple of things that were real killers for me.

    The first was Rylee Adamson, our heroine. Other than her abilities as a tracker and as an Immune, she could have been plucked from nearly a dozen other UF books. She's the kinda of crass, sorta tough person whose badassness comes across as more showy than authentic. She's not stupid but she also makes a lot of rookie moves for someone whose supposedly been in the business for ten years.

    The other is the periodic switching from the first-person point of view of the heroine, to the third person for others.

    With that said, most of what irked me falls under my personal pet peeves. I still think there is a lot of potential here, especially if you are looking for a fairly quick, UF read.

    5.0 out of 5 stars This book puts Shannon Mayer on my "must read" list! December 6, 2012
    By T. Long
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I really enjoyed the heck out of this book. The world-building was excellent, the plot fun and exciting. Most of all, the relationship between the two protagonists was so entertaining and I love that the POV switches between them (as well as other characters which was a bit much). Elements of it were reminiscent of The Fever Series by Karen Moning and October Daye by Seanan McGuire, but still had twists and personality of its own. Having read other books by the author, I can say she has definitely improved and refined her writing style. Character development and world-building were fantastic, I felt completely immersed in the story. Shannon Mayer is one of those authors that gets better with each book she writes. I'm so excited to see where this series goes.
