There more to the world than he has ever known…
When homicide detective Anthony Hollownton is called to the scene of his latest murder case he quickly becomes aware that something isn't quite right.
It isn't the gruesomeness of the scene.
It isn't the symbols written on the wall.
It isn't the image carved into the victim's back.
It is something else, something he can't quite put his finger on, something he doesn't understand.
Then his partner disappears, leaving Tony alone as the world begins to unravel. As the body count rises Tony must scramble to adapt to this new supernatural world. A supernatural world that wants nothing to do with him and will shut him out at all costs. Until the killer's attention turns to Tony. Now he must work within the supernatural community's rules if he is going to come out of this case alive.

This was an interesting book that kept my attention beginning to end. The author introduces two new species and opens the paranormal world with a bang. There are a few grammatical errors but overall it is well written. I am curious to see where this will go as a series, it could be really good. This book is on the gory side, if you do not like blood and guts, it may not work for you. I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review. -J. Matthews
The premise for this one is intriguing and I really liked the combination of the paranormal with a crime procedural. The story starts off a bit slow and the writing is somewhat stilted, almost as though the author was finding her footing with the story. It does pick up and the story flows better as the story progresses. Our hero, Tony, is thrown into the supernatural world in a big way and it's easy to feel his struggle as he tries to keep a grip on reality. The conclusion isn't a huge cliffy, but there are more questions than answers for the likable Tony.
Cover: Good, fitting, original and relevant. Editing/Proofing: Seems professionally done. Formatting: Very easy on the eyes, no distractions. Character Development: Absolutely perfect, continuity-wise this is well done, with advanced personalities / development. Really felt I got to know everyone in this book and definitely feel like I need to keep up on these people. Plot/Overall This book is easily 4 stars for keeping me on the edge of my seat and being overall, very well written. The professional demeanor makes it an easy read. Although it’s over 80K words, it reads FAST. Very fast-paced, lots of dialogue. It combines some cop-thriller/ mystery with some paranormal and/or urban fantasy. MC is a human who has no prior knowledge of the existence of anything supernatural and is resistant to believe and accept, but not so much that it hinders his ability to solve the case and do what needs to be done. He’s a strong, well-developed character who could easily star in his own best-selling series. Absolutely loved this book and had a hard time putting it down, kept me excited.
I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review. Wow! This is my first paranormal book that I've read and I really enjoyed it. Anthony Hollownton is a bad-a**. He starts by investigating a quite horrific murder. Then there's another murder. His own partner is acting strange and disappears, so there's no help there. Then the paranormal beings come into play and Tony has a really, really hard time explaining to himself what is happening. This book was paced really well and went along smoothly. This book was a good way for me to get into reading this genre. I would recommend it to any adult interested. And I'm looking forward to another Hollownton book.
I rate this book with 3.5 stars. This is the first book by this author that I have read, so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was an interesting mix of a police procedural and paranormal suspense. While this book is supposed to be the first in a series, no other books in this series has been released. While it doesn't end in a traditional cliffhanger, you know that Tony's story just beginning. There is a lot of graphic violence and may not be appropriate for more sensitive readers. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a good job of keeping a steady pace throughout the book to keep this reader interested. She kept you guessing what twists and turns would be revealed in the pages ahead. I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. Now I want to read more about Tony and this supernatural world, but will have to wait until the author writes another book in this series. I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.
