If you are looking to read an action filled adventure, this is the book for you. It starts out with a woman waking up in a morgue, unknowing why she is suddenly a taller brunette rather than a petite blonde, and why she is lying on a cold metal slab. She slowly begins to recall some of the moments of before and bumps into Wyatt, her handler from the agency she had worked for and maybe a little more :). The twists and turns of this book will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat, turning page after page. You follow Evy as she remembers what happened to her, and the bigger plot that has to be solved in only 3 days before Evy and Wyatt, the only people who are trying to stop it, are gone.

I was hoping for a nice ghost story - or perhaps a modern take on the Faustian deal with the Devil - instead I get hit over the head in the first chapter with vampire-half breeds and Owlkins.shapeshifting owls. Is it just me or are supernatural genre authors getting further and further out in left field as they search for new material?

I actually like Meding's writing style so far, and so I'm going to stick with the book - and who knows, I may end up loving it, but somehow as I get older I'm just less able to toss my common sense aside and lose myself in stories of vampires, shapeshifting Owls, elves, fairies and all other manner of made up creatures. Perhaps I've lost the youthful part of myself that allowed me to enjoy such stories - or perhaps they are just as not well written as the genre becomes crowded with GED, over-night authors publishing eBooks without having even a tiny bit of writing talent.

Let's get back to the old school ghosts, demons and deals with the Devil. Let's bring back the authors who actually took the time to construct an enjoyable and (at least halfway) believable plot, and maybe even has an English degree to go along with it..

    Unimpressed.

    Being an avid lover of good science-fiction/fantasy, I saw the good reviews for this novel, and the summary looked intriguing so I purchased it hoping for a good read. While the story-line was decent and original, the writing, itself, seemed subpar.
    I understand it must be challenging for most authors introduce a new world with unique characters and creatures without sounding out of place from the story or without making the introductions sound extremely convenient, and I think the hardest thing for me to get past in this story was way that the author introduced things. It seemed like every few pages, the main character, Evy, would be doing something when a seemingly minute event would happen, she’d treat it like a life-threatening situation, and then explain later. There were lots of different creatures that had traits like the inability to lie, or the inability to feel specific emotions, which just seemed too convenient to me. Or there would be times when she would say lines like, “Remember that one time when this happened, and I did this and you did that and it made this happen?” It’s a very painful way to introduce an important part of the character’s history. In fact, most of the dialogue in general seemed really cheesy/painful to me. I think the author wanted Evy to be this sexy, badass, clever assassin character, but she just comes off far too unrealistic…even in the science-fiction world. Same goes for her sidekick, Wyatt. It seemed like every time he entered the story, he’d be introduced as this super sexy guy with rippling muscles and a six pack abs, and that was all there was too him. There was nothing really unique or interesting about either one – they’re just both your typical smutty characters from science fiction novels I try to avoid. Won't be reading the sequels.

    Disappointment

    I did not enjoy this book. It had an interesting idea that never followed through. Evy, Alex and Wyatt... none of them held my attention. I found myself skipping through the majority of the novel.
