Trinity never believed she was special. As a hybrid witch, cat-shifter, she has never been very powerful. The spells her mother taught her as a child just seemed to fizzle out and her mom gave up on teaching her' which was fine by Trinity all she wanted was a normal life and nothing to do with the politics of the GVSO (group of supernaturals in the area including witches, vampire, sorcerors, werewolves, shifters, and necromancers). From her father, who is a werepuma, Trinity's deluded blood allows her to shift into a house cat. But it also allows her to talk to the animals, which is great for her chosen profession as a vet. But then, Vincent, the centries old vampire, is telling her that she is special. She is a heralded worrier with powers not seen in half a mellenia! Trinity not believing Vincent humors him and accepts the gift he gives her. Supernaturals in the community are being killed and it seems a demon is the cause. Someone is practicing black magic and Trinity is in a race to save herself and those she protects from loosing everything.

I absolutely loved this book. Being from Rochester this book brought back many memories of home. Places she visited and the neighborhood she lived it. Not only that but her writing style was unique and flowed very easily. This book is for anyone who enjoys YA paranormal romance. I would definitely (and have) recommend this to anyone who enjoys books in this genre! I would gladly read more of Jacqueline Battisti's books!!!

This is a paranormal fantasy novel that combines all manner of supernatural beings from werewolves and vampires to witches and shape shifters. When we first join Trinity we discover she is a descendant of Morgaine (a powerful witch) and a shape shifter. She has little magical power; shape shifts into a house cat and can mentally speak with animals. None of which makes her a powerful part of the Genesee Valley Society of Others. All of that will change when she has a solitary meeting with the only local vampire. It turns out to be a very long week for veterinarian Dr. Trinity Caine after she learns that someone is hunting supernaturals that live in her home turf. While trying to avoid getting involved in the investigation, Trinity discovers she is at the heart of the action as it becomes centered on her. With the help of her father the puma, her mother the witch, her grandmother the super witch and Gordon, the alpha werewolf she sets out to discover who has started making trouble in the neighborhood. This book is expertly crafted as the storyline flows from mystery to action to romance within the pages. There were some clues to the ending of the mystery that led me to believe I knew who the culprit was, but I was happily proved wrong at the end. The action packed fight sequences were written with just enough detail that it was easy to visualize without taking away from the excitement. And let’s just say that the romance portions (although there are only two in the book) are written well enough to illicit the responses I believe they were supposed to create. The ending was neatly tied up with no loose ends and I’m not sure where the plot will pick up for the sequel, but I know I can’t wait for it to be released and see just what adventure Trinity’s life will hand to her next.

The storyline was interesting, but the characters were all one dimensional. They seem to pop up and state the necessary lines without depth, motivation or backstory. Even the protagonist doesn't dwell much on why she does things, often thinking to herself "I don't even want to think about this" and dropping her line of thought. The plot ignores big questions such as the punishment of her cousin in helping to summon a demon and sending it on a murderous killing spree because she is "family" and she is pregnant and only wanted the best for her unborn child. Strongly reccomend you avoid this book.

The sample for this book is 12 pages and only goes through the authors acknowledgements. Not even one page of the actual book or even a prologue.
