    By day Harriett is in her natural form, a beautiful young woman, a gifted nurse and healer, but at night a faerie's curse causes her to turn in to an old crone who cries of the deaths that are about to come in the form of a banshee. Harriett lives in apartment 1305 on the hidden 13th floor of a building in Carmine, Indiana, a town over run with beings hiding among the humans. Her neighbor in 1306, Kiral, is a vampire whom she has loved for the last three years. but he has never seen her during the day so all he sees is the old crone and calls her grandmother. Marc in 1301 is a demon, Stephanie in 1302 is a werewolf, Xan in 1303 is a dragon slayer, you get the drift of the residents on the 13th floor.

    Harriett despairs of ever getting Kiral to see her for herself and return her love. All that changes one day when she has a vision of Kiral on a rooftop chained as the dawn approaches. In grief she rushes out to cry like the banshee she is of his death as the sun burns him. Grieving for a love she cannot save she decides to warn Kiral to stay in his apartment. Maybe this time she can save someone. Meeting Kiral in the stairwell unexpectedly Harriett tries to tell him of his fate but words do not come, but she does know he is starving and offers herself. Kiral takes her up on her offer, but is barely able to restrain himself from draining her dry.


    Xan finds Harriett in the stairwell and takes her to Marc. He then tell Marc what happened to her and Marc goes down to Kiral's apartment and punches Kiral and tells him to stay away from Harriett as he has traumatized her enough. A warning Kiral cannot heed. He begins a waiting game he now knows her name and that she lives in apartment 1305. When all hell breaks loose on the streets of Carmine Kiral and Grandmother go in search of his savior. Kiral never realizing the one he seeks is the old banshee next to him.


    How does Harriett tell Kiral that she is both the young woman and the old crone? How will Kiral react if he finds out? Can Harriett save Kiral when she could not save others before him? This is the fifth installment of the 13th Floor series. Christine Rains has stated the final installment, "The Ghost" will be out July 2013 and I for one can hardly wait. This is a series that although the books could be read as individual stories is truly best read starting with book one and continuing in order. Book one, "The Marquis" is free, all others are only $.99 each on Amazon. Barnes and noble has each of the five books for $.99 each. If you like a paranormal read this is definitely a series to add to you TBR list.
