Summary

The fae live among us. And one of them is a serial killer.
I thought this would be a simple profiling case. Just another Jack the Ripper wannabe, prowling London’s streets, searching for easy kills. I was wrong. This killer is fae, and he’s as elusive as smoke on the wind. But I’m an FBI profiler, and it’s my job to track him down.
It doesn’t matter that one of the main suspects - a lethally alluring fae - is trying to seduce me...or kill me, I’m not sure which. I won’t be stopped, not even when panic roils through the streets of London or when the police start to suspect me.
As I close in on the killer, I follow him to a magical shadow realm that’s like nothing I ever expected, where I’m hunted like prey. Fine. Bring it on. I’m an FBI Agent. And it turns out I have magical powers of my own.
A new adult urban fantasy, perfect for fans of Karen Marie Moning and Ilona Andrews.

Fails to deliver

not very exciting. I found the history of England boring it was as if it was included to prove to the reader that the author knew what they were talking about. I also found the portrayal of the English people to be stereotypical though that might be partly the narrators fault. This is another book that I might borrow from the library but won't pay to read it. the story didn't live up to its potential.

Starts slow but ends well

To be honest, I fell asleep during the first half of this book and didn't really feel the need to go back over it when I woke up. The start is slow and a bit bog standard murder mystery, then I missed a bit due to sleep - but once the heroine hits the Fae world things get much more interesting. The story follows a solid, if simple arc and the narration is good (though the Scottish accents are a little Shrek-like). An enjoyable piece of fiction and I look forward to the second book.

Solid characters, intriguing plot, unique spin

Like many, I don't actually write reviews often, but I enjoyed this book enough to bother. I usually hesitate to read/listen to books with less than 1,000 ratings, but Amazon insisted I would enjoy this one. Turns out, Amazon was right.

I hate books where the heroine makes stupid choices in the name of feminism... this isn't one. I hate books when the characters are predestined and cliche... only a whisper of prophecy. And I hate when I know the ending 5 chapters in... should've guessed it, but totally didn't.

I love this book.

I'm devastated that only one of the series is currently on Audible. Hurry up and get the rest recorded - I need this distraction while I fold laundry!!!

Great new series!

Why does the female characters go in heat when they meet a male love interest? Cassandra is presented as a strong FBI profiler. She goes to London to help the police solve a murder that mimics Jack the Ripper killings. Before she arrives to her hotel, she is called a murder scene. While there, she establishes herself as knowledgeable and professional. She is new to the area and it is night. There is a murder on the loose. Cassandra, the FBI agent, decides to walk to her hotel (a few blocks away) at night, and she still has her luggage. She is losing a fight with a couple of thugs when Rowan, the male protagonist, comes to her assistance. Beaten up and suffering from a possible concussion, when she looks at Rowan she goes in heat.

Why are our female fighters denigrated as sniveling idiots when they are around the romantic lead? The relationship devolves into the predictable pattern of the female being portrayed as a disobedient two-year old. The male will say, let’s take course of action “A” and the female decides to declare her independence and will do the opposite. The female will get into trouble and the male must come to the rescue. The female will have an internal dialogue concerning the trustworthiness of the male. It takes the form of, he saved me so he cannot be the bad guy; I have feelings for him but based on the evidence he must be the bad guy; I have a duty to uphold; he lied or withheld information so he has to be the bad guy. You get the picture.

The action it is good and Cassandra has a unique talent. She gets strength from the fear of others or can manipulate elves through their emotions.

There is also the predictable element of the protagonist (male or female) having an emotional incident in their past that effects their ability to act. Many times, it hinders their objectivity or reveals a hidden truth. While fighting with the London police, and encountering unexplained situations, Cassandra is dealing with fear that she crazy, like her dad.
Her acceptance of magic and use while avoiding the police is a great action sequence. There is the right touch of her inexperience and confusion of the police.

Rowan is an interesting character. As a love interest, you know that he is tall, handsome, strong and can trade the verbal barbs with Cassandra. We see a glimpse of his fairy land. There is fairy bar scene that is reminiscent of The Chalmun's Cantina ("the Star Wars Cantina"). The fictional bar located in the "pirate city" of Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine. I hope the authors used the bar to expand on the colorful characters in the story.

Because of the predictable story lines, I could only give it a 3.5 for story. There are still outstanding standing answers. I find Rowan interesting and Cassandra’s history that I will read the next book.
