I really enjoyed this book. I have been selecting anything with a pretty cover that looks like Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance to read right now since those are the genres I love and haven't been signing up for book tours (for fear of not finishing by my due dates). This book gave me hope that maybe I am ready to start signing up for tours again since I read it in about three days. The story was a little slow getting started in terms of where it was heading. It feels like the story is going in one direction at first and then it takes a turn that, while obvious, seemed unexpected to me. I loved the character development. The romantic element was subtle and exciting even though there really isn't a lot of action in that department. I would recommend it to a YA audience that enjoy these genres. It was very well written and highly enjoyable.
Her name is Sadie Stanton and she owns the Stanton Agency, where she serves all things preternatural.
When Cameron's Law was passed, making all supernatural beings citizens, Sadie saw the opportunity and offered her services for paranormal investigations.
She's perfect for the job, after all, she's a vampire.
While helping a client in the graveyard, a crazed woman runs up and stakes Sadie. As quickly as she appeared, she ran away. Lucky for Sadie, the woman didn't know her anatomy. It hurt like hell, but healed quickly. And the night is still young.
Following proper procedures, she files a complaint and has the bad luck to have her complaint taken by Detective Johnston, a shifter. There is no love lost between these species and he is being a jerk, or is she just reading him wrong. He definitely gets under her skin, and as her receptionist, Madison, said, "He was tugging on her pigtails."
Soon enough, Sadie has to deal with Johnston again. It appears that young vampires are attacking werewolves and this could have an adverse affect on the new law. Sadie wants to avoid that at all costs and begins to work closely with Detective Johnston. They need to see who or what is behind this before there is an all out war between the vampires and the werewolves.
There are so many awesome characters in this book. Each one, even the ones with only small roles, stand out as individuals and their voices are strongly written.
My favorites are Sadie and Dakota. Can't wait for you to meet Dakota. If you think Sadie is tough, wait until to see Dakota in action. She is a hunter and even Sadie isn't sure of just what she is, maybe something shifty or fae.
The author left me wondering about that in this first book.
I also really liked the view of Sadie's everyday life while being a vampire, her normalness.
"It was a standard evening. I showered and dressed, had breakfast and checked to see if I had any messages. After that, I ran a few errands, which were ultimately very banal. Just like all the other myths, being a vampire did not automatically make your life exciting or glamorous, and you didn't come equipped with servants. Vampires still had to do things like go to the bank, buy food and do their laundry."
Of course, her breakfast must have been some type of blood and her day started after dark. I wonder what the grocery stores are like, having to stock edibles for all types of supernatural beings.
There are more attacks and the race is on to solve this case before all hell breaks loose.
You'll meet some very interesting characters, good and bad.
You'll get to see how Sadie interviews demon summoners, and lawyers for her agency, which was a fun way for the author to introduce new characters.
And you get to meet Dakota, the bounty hunter from hell. Still not sure what she is.
I had a really fun time getting to know the characters of Adelheid, the largest supernatural community in all of New England.
For a not so long book, this one is packed full of back story mysteries, budding romance, lethal investigations, and a look at the politics of a preternatural town.
A great beginning to this series which the author wraps up nicely, but hints at answers to some lingering questions, which leads you to the next book.
Sadie is actually a pretty normal person, other than the liquid diet and no sunlight thing. She is dealing with trying to get her office staffed with all of the special ability people she needs to be an effective force for the good of the people. She is also recovering from heartbreak in the book meets an new potential love interest. If you are familiar with my reviews you know that kind of plot development can be a bit of a turn off for me, but Mia does it in a way that doesn't bother me. Sadie also has a pretty potent sarcastic streak which led to some amusing interactions between her and the other characters. Overall this was a bit of a new take on using paranormal creatures in a book and I really enjoyed the premise. I'll be checking into the second book fairly soon for sure.
