    his is a great urban fantasy

    Keira Kelly belongs to Clan Kelly, a family of magic users who look human, but cannot breed with them. She is at Wild Moon Ranch in Texas with her lover Adam the vampire king of his tribe when she undergoes the Change. Normally that brings the person one paranormal power, but in her case the Change provides her with all the diverse powers her clan mates possess. This makes her the heir to the clan leader so she must leave behind her beloved vampire for a little while and heed her Great-Great Grandmother Gigi's call to head to Vancouver.

    Gideon, Keira's evil ex lover, is dying. Gigi asks Keira to escort him to her mother's side if they can't heal him. A Sidhe Seelie Daffyd ap Geraint accompanies them. When they are sitting in a vehicle he disappears. Only Keira heard the song which means the Sidhe called back Daffyd. In Vancouver near the entrance to Faerie an Unseelie Sidhe is killing the homeless stealing their essence. Keira and her entourage hunt down the killer as she learns more about her heritage and Gigi's plans for her include uniting with Others.

    This is a great urban fantasy as Maria Lima uses British Columbia to the fullest and cleverly keeps Gigi off the page until the end yet her presence seems everywhere. Gigi is a kind ruler whose strategic goal is the uniting of the paranormal species so as to end their hostilities; she believes her descendent is the key. Keira is terrific as the confused "coming of age" heroine who seems to be in ever paranormal being's crosshairs. Ms. Lima's tale is a special romantic suspense fantasy on a par with the best works of Laurel K. Hamilton and Kelly Armstrong.

    Highly Enjoyable

    I started this series several months ago and only bought the first two books to start me off...wasn't sure I'd enjoy it. Maria Lima totally surprised me! Even though the first book was a little slow, the second and especially the third really drew me in and captivated my attention. Keira Kelley is likable, lovable and my new want-to-be best friend. I love her dismissal of the awesome power she inherits and her need to feel normal even though she is anything but. Lima has an uncanny ability to pull you into the action and make you fall in love with these off-beat characters. Niko...love you much, so wish you were real. This family, the Kelley's, is one you want to be a part of. I was entranced and totally engrossed. I love the unpredictablity of the plot. So many twists and turns and surprises. So many secrets revealed and questions left unanswered. This is a wonderful world that Lima has created and I can't wait to dive back in.
