    Exciting

    In her former life Evy Stone was a Dreg Hunter. When she died in a factory fire targeting her, no one expected her to come back to life especially the arsonist who murdered her; but she has with new paranormal skills.

    As she adapts to her new body and learns to use her powers, five people are aware that Evy came back. Her lover-partner Wyatt Truman warns her to trust no one especially the triad as they invaded a lab to take away powerful objects and hybrids but failed to snatch the genius behind the development. He does not trust their agenda. When the compulsive obsessive mad scientist Walter Thackery steals a dangerous object, he begins a chess match in which check will be Evy's blood.

    The third Evy Stone urban fantasy (see As Lie the Dead and Three Days to Dead) is a fun romp due to actions of the mad scientist; a stereotype (but not campy) villain who makes for an entertaining thriller as he is a classic COD freak seeking the heroine's blood. Fast-paced, fans will enjoy the game of life (and death) as Evy with her loving sidekick Wyatt battle traitors in their group and a truly mad scientist.

    I Also Recommend:

    Dark and Satisfying

    Similar to the earlier books, this installment mixes mystery, action, horror and paranormal romance into a dark and satisfying brew. The story is infused with a palpably ominous atmosphere and delivers an engrossing, fast-paced story. There's sympathetic main characters, an urgent plot, a gritty and complex world and imaginative, horror-inspired creatures. Furthermore, the romantic sub-plot is emotionally engaging and satisfying.

    Although the action plot begins with an unresolved issue of betrayal, it quickly changes track and concerns a truly diabolical mad scientist who has created nightmare creatures and a potentially devastating virus. He plays a sadistic game with Evy which she eventually loses. At times the narrative becomes difficult to read, but it's completely absorbing and riddled with action sequences. Moreover, the primary characters of Evy, (the protagonist and former Dreg Bounty Hunter), and Wyatt, (her lover and former Handler), are extremely well written.

    I recommend this series to all fans of dark urban fantasy. If you like dark and dangerous supernatural fiction, you will love this book.

    A Must Read!

    Ive read all 4 books, and will leave the same review for each. this isnt going to be a review but more of an opinion.
    If you like Urban fantasy, these books are up there with the best of them. I enjoyed reading this series as much as I enjoyed Kim Harrisons Rachel Morgan books and Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega books. yep, this stuff is just as good. they were pretty hard to put down. We can only hope theres going to be more of Evy Stone!!

    Worse than the first

    Sorry, but this series is soooo lame, boring and repetitive that I can't even get past the first few chapters. Were-Owls? Give me a break. I'm wondering if the author even had a general idea where she was going when she sat down to write this. (I can't imagine it took her longer than a day or two) I stopped reading when I realized there was nothing about "Evie" that I liked or cared about. Same with the other non-descript generalized charactersl. If you want a GOOD book about mythical creatures ect. try the Women of the Otherworld series. Better written, great plots and wonderful characters that you actually care about.
