Maggie's predictably unpredictable life gets turned on its head once the elf shows up to hire her, though, and along the way Maggie learns a bit about friendship and family, and about her own powers.
So you know. quite typical in formula for an urban fantasy - but done in an engaging and new way, with clever descriptions of LA, and ways of integrating our world into one of magic that are genuinely creative. This book does suffer a bit from world-building-itis - a bit more time spent setting up things we need to know - but it doesn't suffer much for it, and I'll definitely be continuing with this series. In particular, as a heroine, Maggie is human and flawed, but not in the kind of way that makes you want to reach through the screen and strangle her; she doesn't spend a lifetime beating herself up for mistakes, and she learns from them. A coherent plot, sensible heroine, ending that still sets up future plots, an engaging story - it's hard to ask for much more from a few hours reading.
So onto Maggie For Hire! What a great great story of a Magical Tracker who chases down vampires, ghouls, trolls and even werewolves. Maggie is an Irish brunette in her 30's. The job is barely able to pay her rent, but she is good at it and most days loves it. Maggie lives in the Other Side a separate plane of existence then Earth. She has the special talent that allows her to open portals to access both planes when needed. This story is about two artifacts that the vampires want as well as Maggie's (unknown to her) uncle. The artifacts are a jade and a diamond lion statues, little ones not the big guys. Maggie gets roped into having an elf, Killian, to help her find the artifacts. Everyone knows if you ask a favor from an elf there is pay back. Maggie and Killian must fight her uncle, vampires, ghouls as well doppelgängers. No easy task and being down and dirty the uncle and vamps kidnap Maggie's Mom to boot. The story runs smoothly. The characters are fantastic, the story line is captivating and the humor throughout is hilarious!! I highly recommend this first book! I have purchased the next 4 books (out of 10 right now) of the series by Kate Danley, as I'm betting this will be a great read!!

Maggie MacKay is a tracker of supernatural beings, she is great at her job. She learned from the best, her Dad, who disappeared without a trace in the middle of an assignment.
An elf named Killian has shown up with an assignment. Maggie's Uncle is working with the forces of dark to turn Earth into a "Vampire Convenience Store", with humans as their number one source. Together the two have to track down magical objects, and stop her evil Uncle.
A fast paced supernatural thriller. I really liked Maggie, she is spunky, sassy, down to earth and knows her job well. Killian was just as likable. I liked the plot, it was original, the characters were well rounded, the supernatural beings were awesome.
There was a lot of action, drama, and humor. I like that in a story. I definitely will be following Maggie's story and highly recommend Maggie for Hire to those who love supernatural thrillers. I also liked the cover, it captures Maggie at her best.
