In Jericho City, Sophie Wilson is a free woman though her abusive ex husband Mark still refuses to accept the divorce as he stalks her. Her BFF Lucy persuades her to go to a club. However, something kills Lucy and forces Sophie on the run with vampires pursuing her. She fears her fate will be like that of her murdered friend until the Carcajou shapeshifting werewolves take the purebred human under their protection; keeping her safe from the blood sucking Upir who killed Lucy.

The Carcajou believes Sophie is their shaman who will save them from becoming wild animals. One of the pack members Zach realizes Sophie is his life mate. He vows to keep her safe. Meanwhile the vampires dispatch a new convert to kill her; he was chosen because he knows Sophie's weaknesses being her abusive former husband who manipulated her vulnerabilities.

Readers will be taken into the exciting world of Lilith Saintcrow with this fast-paced urban romantic fantasy. The story line is non stop action from the murder of Lucy until the final anticipated confrontation. Although the plot is somewhat linear, readers will appreciate the transformation of Sophie.

Slooooooooow

And confusing. I just was so here and there with things you didnt understand and werent forthcoming in explaining. The cover is totally misleading there was no real romance, they ended up liking each other in the last chapter. I didnt enjoy it at all.

    Ashley slowly let herslef drift to the floor. Whn she reached the bottom, she flicked her tail to propel herself to the rock where she was tethered. Kay glanced over, and saw what ashley was going to do. She watched closely, and Ashley layed herslef down. Then, sh wormed her way acrosst the sand, up to Jade. The rope would not allow a travel in just a still water middle, but Ashley already knew. But Jade didn't. Jade saw Ashley swimming torwards her, and immediately, she thought Ashley was hurt. She darted over to her, but Ashley tried to tell her not to. Then, Jade let out a yelp, and was sucked under a hole. The rock had disapeared with her. Ashley, forgetting to be cautious, did the same. She fell down, and Kay was left. Kay tried her hardest to be still, and she did not get sucked under. Then, a guard came in and cut the rope. Jut at the bottom, and not enough for Kay to escape. The guard took out a piece of cloth, and covered her mouth. He grabbed her arm, and took her away, stopping long enough to drop some liquid down her throat, making her sleepy...
