Emergency Shift: Full Moon Medic, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Never promise a fey anything.
With magic leaking back into our world, working the nightshift as a paramedic comes with danger. But I handle it. I’ve got a shotgun for the zombies, and my lycanthropic rage hasn’t escaped my apartment. Life is normal-ish. All that changes when I’m called to help a dying fey knight and I make a promise.
There’s a little girl with big eyes and a heart-rending sniffle. I can’t say no. Of course she’s not human. She’s their key to opening the long-closed gates and feasting on humanity.
Now, an entire world I know nothing about is trying to kill me. And if I don’t protect her, the teeth around my heart will finish the job. If I learn fast and bargain the right parts of my soul, the girl and I might make it out alive. Otherwise the cruelest winter will freeze even the warmest hearts in the city.
Listen to my story now and ride along for a wild emergency shift.

This story (set closely after the prequel/setup _Twilight Run_) takes place in near-future Portland. After millennia of the mundane world (called the Crossroads) being cut off from the worlds of Death and Faerie (and there may be more worlds to come) the ways are re-opening. This brings wonder and it brings horror and it brings predators.
The main character, Abby, is a paramedic with a horrible background that drives her to protect life, period, at any personal cost. She finds out in this story that there are profound consequences to making glib promises to a dying patient, if that patient is Fae. A simple promise binds her to a changeling who is being hunted and forces her to fight and to flee and to accept complete personal transformations.
As other reviewers have noted, there is a goodly amount of violence in this book. OK, more than a goodly amount. Not at all out of character for the denizens of Faerie (redcaps are not at all pleasant to run into). And a goodly amount also of wonder and magic and beauty.
An ongoing side plot in the book is the continuing attempt of the authorities and the people of Portland to understand and adapt to the accelerating changes, such as zombies coming back to something like life. Abby simultaneously is frantically coming to terms with the changes before her new responsibilities kill her. And in books to come, Portland is going to have to come to terms with Abby.
I really am looking forward to the continuation of this series.
There was a brief message in the beginning of the book that if you wanted to know about the h’s past you could subscribe to the authors newsletter. Perhaps this is where all the missing world building takes place? That work building should be in this first book.
I get that an author wants to drum up a following, etc. but provide that newsletter sign up as a bonus incentive, not one for an integral part of the story you want people to purchase. You’ll gain more followers if your story is complete and not confusing from the get go.
(Bonus Examples: Deleted scenes, extended epilogues, the story/a pivotal scene from a different characters POV, the backstory on a minor character, etc.)
