A Great Beginning to a Terrific Series!

Meet Lawson, a touch-talking, wise-cracking secret agent for the vampire council. As a Fixer, it is Lawson's job to maintain the Balance, that veil of secrecy that keeps the vampire race hidden from ordinary humans. When a vampire steps over the line, it's up to him to be sure they never have the chance to do so again.

When Lawson's oldest enemy, Cosgrove, returns to Boston and begins to carve a bloody swath through the human population, it only makes sense that the Council sends Lawson to take care of things. But things aren't always as they seem and Lawson soon finds himself neck deep in trouble, uncertain of who to trust and rapidly running out of options.

If you're looking for an urban fantasy series with a different take on vampires and enjoy firefights, martial arts, and a noir atmosphere, then I urge you to give The Fixer a try. You won't be disappointed.

If I were to go on story alone, I would give this book 4 stars. But formatting plays an important part in an eBook, and there was just so much that was poorly formatted that I can't overlook that. It was like I purchased a pirated copy, with odd line breaks, chapters that jumped from 2 to 19...the chapters are there, just regular text inside paragraphs so you HAVE to search for it and edit the book yourself. Otherwise, it's really not an enjoyable read. Also there are question marks at certain points that didn't seem to belong...and it just seemed like a converted text file....not a book. The story itself was actually quite good. Although the character descriptions are lacking, the action kind of speaks for who they are. The action scenes are described REALLY well, and the authors training in Ninjitsu really comes through...one thing I hate is a fight scene that doesn't make sense..this makes sense. Use of momentum, pivot points, and reaction were a sight for sore eyes. This is definitely a different take on the Vampire...and I loved it. Screw Twilight....Lawson is my type of vampire!! I will be buying the next book in the series because the world is intriguing to me. And I'm purposely not really saying anything about the plot in this because it was well done, and I don't want to spoil it for anyone that might check this out!
