The first novel in the Preternatural Affairs series is an intriguing and action packed urban fantasy.
An agent with Office of Preternatural Affairs, Cesar Hawke finds himself on the wrong side of the law when he wakes up with a hangover, scratches on his arm, a discharged Glock on his coffee table and dead body in his bathtub. On the run and searching for a shaman, he finds Isobel Stonecrow who is now on the OPA’s most wanted list for resurrecting someone for the wrong client. With her, he can clear his name, get his job back and get justice for the victim, really how hard could it be?
This fast paced plot keeps the reader on the edge of their seats with lots of action, suspense and a magic spell or two. The author brings the story to life with vivid images, great dialogue and strong compelling characters that the reader can easily relate to. Lots of fantastic supporting characters and a story that keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end.
There isn’t any romance just a little flirting here and there and some sexual innuendo and talk involving incubi. The story focuses on Cesar dodging the law and bad guys while trying to clear his name. The author spices things up by keeping not only the reader guessing, but Cesar as well as his not sure who can be trusted.
The author has created a fantastic urban fantasy world involving magic and demons with some surprising twists that the reader doesn’t see coming. Once started, it’s impossible to put the book down until the very last word is read. Oh and did I mention there is a few ghosts involved as well?
I really enjoyed this book with its great characters and intriguing plot. I really enjoyed the fact that I wasn’t sure who the culprit was until the end and I am looking forward to reading more cases involving the Office of Preternatural Affairs.

This is a really good start to a new series. It will keep you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out who the murderer is.
Cesar Hawke is an agent with the Office of Preternatural Affairs but that may not help him now. He has scratches on his body, but no one is in the bed next to him. When he searches his apartment he finds a Glock on the coffee table and a dead woman in his bathtub. He doesn’t remember bringing the waitress home last night and the gun that was used is not his. He thought his job would protect him, but when no one from OPA shows up to bail him out of police custody he decides to prove his innocence on his own. The best way to find proof is to track the last case he was given. How hard can it be to find a witch who talks to the dead? When he finds her she’ll be able to talk to the waitress to get answers and clear his name.
Isobel Stonecrow can speak with the dead. She helps people find closure with their deceased loved ones. She knows that OPA is after her, and she will do whatever it takes to not get caught. When Cesar catches up with her and explains what he needs Isobel agrees to help him, but they have to find out where the police took the body. Cesar keeps in contact with his partner at OPA and she helps them when she can, and she was able to give him the location, demanding that they wait for her before they do anything. Will they finally get the answers they are hoping for? Or will Cesar’s name be added to the OPA’s most wanted list?
I received a copy of this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
