Isabel Stone wanted a normal life. But when the unexpected death of her father leaves her at the helm of the family business, things quickly go from weird to worse. Vampires are on the loose and out of the coffin, and only Isabel can walk the fine line between the world of the living and the world of the undead.
Torn between letting go of her past and embracing her future, Isabel will have to decide who she can trust, and be willing to use all the weapons at her disposal, to get to the bottom of a terrifying string of deaths that lead right to her doorstep—before she becomes the next victim. In a city where nothing is what it seems, ending up the target of a deranged killer might actually be the high point of her week. Because in this town, the things that go bump in the night… just might kill you.
I must say, I really liked this book! When I first went into it, I was worried it was going to be a rip-off of the Anita Blake series. It is NOT. This stands beautifully all on its own. I found the characters to be well written and fun. The story flowed well, and I stayed engaged through the whole book, which is saying something since I've been easily bored lately! It's been a while since I read a good book with vamps and weres, and I'm so glad to have found this. I can't wait for the next in the series!
Also, I volunteer myself if Xavier needs to be kept busy.
