Readers who love Laurell K. Hamilton are sure to enjoy this strong, sexy paranormal introducing Mona Lisa and the people of the Monère. These non-humans are the exiled children of the moon, dependent on various warring Queens, whom they serve and mate with in exchange for prolonging their lives.
We first meet Lisa as a lonely ER nurse in Manhattan, a perpetual outsider with unusual healing powers. She is strangely drawn to Gryphon, the wounded patient in Bed 8; and her healing powers confirm to him that she is part Monère and the first Mixed Blood Queen. Their flight from the hospital kicks off Mona Lisa's introduction to her real life and a new world full of enemies. There is the race to find the antidote that is poisoning Grphyon, the discovery and rescue of a long-lost brother, and the saving of her other protector, Amber, through sexual healing. This promises to be a great series to follow. Ginger Curwen
