"Into the Mist" is an action-packed paranormal erotic suspense that kicks off Maya Banks new series about a group of soldiers who are exposed to a chemical that gives them paranormal powers. For some, it's shifting into animals, another can turn invisible, but for one man it's the answer to a prayer.

Eli has always been 'different'. His ability to turn into mist frightened his parents so much, they put him in social services as a child of ten. He learned to keep his secret until he and his buddies were hit with a chemical that's causing his buddies to exhibit paranormal powers. He can finally stop hiding his talents and pass it off as a result of the chemical. But his buddies can't seem to control their powers and Eli's ability to control his has made him a target...for more than one group.

Tyana's brother was also affected by the chemical. But Eli and his men left him behind and Tyana can't and won't forgive that. When her brother begins suffering due to his lack of control, Tyana decides to hunt down Eli...literally. He WILL tell her what she wants to know...or else.

What a pair. Two physically and psychologically wounded loners who manage to find the perfect match...their alter egos of the other sex! This was the only thing that kind of bugged me. I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I guarantee there's NO WAY I would date a man like me!!

Anyway, the sexual tension is smoking from page one and the action and plot tension just keep rising. Banks' humor comes through in her sharp dialogue and I found myself laughing out loud several times throughout the story. Of course, it's necessary to suspend reality to really like this book, but after all, it's a paranormal. Banks characters come alive for me and I found myself wanting to push, smack, hug, etc each of the different characters at one time or another. Now my biggest problem will be waiting for the next book, which I'm hoping will be about the twins and a missing woman..."Into the Lair" is scheduled for a July 1, 2009 release and I'll be waiting!

I had read a Maya Banks book before, and started on this one because I like the supernatural twists. I was hesitant at first, but this book pulled me in from page one, and I couldn't put it down. I would definitely recommend it for people who like action, romance, and a really head-strong heroine.

Love the author. Love the characters. Hated the book. This is the first time that I have disliked a Maya Banks book. Save your time and money. Reading this book was painful. It just drags along. I love stories with shape shifters; but, this was the worst one I have read. The story could have been told in a hundred pages rather than 230 pages; and not lose any of the integrity. If you want a shape shifter story I recommend the Mona Lisa series by Sunny, Midnight series by Cynthia Eden, or the pride series by Shelly Laurenston.

I couldn't finish this one. I can't figure this author out. Some of the books by her I've really enjoyed (like the Sweet series), but several others have been hard to suffer through. With this one, I decided why bother? The heroine is TSTL. For instance when Eli just shows up in her room in Paris, wouldn't that be a sign that he put a tracker on her. Or at the least that she should ask some strong questions? For a TSTL heroine it obviously means time for monkey sex. None of her choices made sense in this way. She questions every common sense choice her leader makes, but I'm supposed to believe she's a tough cunning mercenary? I guess if being strong is synonomous with being stupid then she was really strong. There was no chemistry between Eli and Tyana and no reason to care what happened to any of them, and therefore, no reason to read on. There are too many good books in the world to spend another minute on one that isn't even mediocre. Stats: Who cares, the story is crap

Having read others of Maya's books I wasn't sure if I'd like her twist on paranormal or not but I loved it!! I loved the characters and the real-life qualities they had. Really hope she writes more of the characters soon!

I really enjoyed this book and the follow up book "Into The Lair" It's exciting and I didn't want to put it down. I have been through this series 6 times and I still enjoy the books as if it were the first time through. The characters are sexy and have steamy sex scenes and it will keep you excited till the end. This is the only paranormal series by Maya Banks that I know of but I have enjoyed all of her books and would read anything she writes. Her other books such as "Sweet surender and Sweet persuasion" are also exelent reads and have steamy menage scenes in them and I must say very exciting, so check out Maya Banks and all of her hot stories and characters it's worth it.Be with me was a very very great read with lots of steamy sex scenes,and you usually don't have to wait until several chapters in to get to the fun stuff which I really like about her books, and the characters are well written and the plot and storyline keep the pages turning. I reread these books several times and never tire of the wonderfully written romantic drama. Always a bad guy and always a woman who needs her man to take charge, and all ends well. I mean who doesn't like a strong man to command the bedroom, and bring you more pleasure than you've ever known. I also would like to note that with such detailed instruction written to light a fire in your sex life it is a tool to save a complacent relationship.

This novel had it all; suspense, action, steam, and some real tearjerker moments.  I was caught up in the suspense of the tale, trying to figure out what was coming next.  That said, the narrator didn’t do this book justice.  She downplayed the action in the tale rather than infusing emotion and suspense into the novel.  This would have been much better as a print copy.  The characters in this tale had me from the get-go.  They weren’t your typical shifters, but rather had a definite twist on the norm.  It was also a cast full of alpha males, which would set anyone drooling.   Overall, this was a unique introduction to the series and left me wanting more.  I definitely want to know what’s coming next for these loveable yet aggravating characters.
