After the events in Hunted by The Others changed Shiarra's life so completely, it was hard for me to imagine where Jess Haines would be able to take these adventures.
Taken by the Others is all about the Vamps and once again Shiarra finds herself right in the thick of things, even when she doesn't really mean to.
Well, being tempted to join the anti-paranormal group The White Hats, dating a were, being contracted to a Vamp and hanging out with a Mage that happens to be your best friend's boyfriend, definitely aren't inducing to a non-violent and laid back lifestyle, are they?
Once again Jess Haines brings on the goods and delivers a compelling and entertaining adventure that I did not want to stop reading for a second!
I love how Jess is not afraid of putting her leading lady through the ringer and treating her like a human being, a very pro-active one at that, but still a human being that has her faults and is not afraid of recognizing.
The H & W Investigations series is fast becoming one of my faves and it is definitely one series for which I will be eagerly awaiting for, whenever a new installment is expected.
If you are an avid Urban Fantasy reader like me, I totally recommend this series to you, You won't regret it! If you have read Hunted by The Others, you will definitely want to read Taken by the Others.

Slight spoiler alert. The climactic battle is actually anticlimactic and very unsatisfyingly inconclusive. The "evil" vampire from Chicago never gets the justice he deserves; humans deaths are nonchalantly piled up and their is no real understanding of why Royce and Max, the two elder vampires, want Shiarra. Max's reasons are somewhat reasonable. He just wants to piss off Royce who for some reason is very protective of Shiarra. Why her werewolf boyfriend is involved since they seem to almost have a platonic relationship is also unclear; let alone why the human vigilantes choose to involved themselves. I agree with their leader let the two vampires fight it out then go after the last vamp standing (Although Max is clearly the more evil of the two).
I only rated this as a 3 star because the book contains some good ideas.
For example she is told not to look into a vamps eyes at it increases his hold on her but what does she do but do it anyway even watching said vamp kill a woman by drinking her dry because she may have been in another vamp bed. . . And our heroine is supposed to be one of the good guys.
Sorry I can take a bit of soul searching but this one wallows in an almost permanent self pity party.
How she survives whilst others around die like flys is beyond the realm of even fantasy. . .
One can only hope that she manages to pull on her big girl panties in the next book
