The setting takes place in world where magic is no longer a secret and humans are plankton in a world of supernaturals. Piper (our heroine) is a hunter and will do just about anything to keep her head above water. She kicks butts (literally). However, one of jobs doesn't really go according to plan and that's when the action adventure starts. And its action non-stop, especially when smoldering Ronan crosses paths with Piper.
This book is an excellent read.
New Chicago and the world Carpenter created are wholly original and lushly described throughout the whole book. This is a series that has everything I love in an urban fantasy/paranormal romance mix. Sarcasm, a female lead that doesn't need saving, magic, a very cranky demon, and twists and turns you don't see coming.
Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series will love following Piper's journey as she hunts down the monsters only to become tangled up with them!
Relevant plot details are revealed in a spaced out manner though it very rarely comes as a surprise. Who her boss was came as no surprise for example. I suppose I wish things weren't so obvious. When they are written as something that can't be deduced and then "revealed" it kinda loses points for me.
I do like that it seems that the author allows the relationship to develop rather than just going at it like rabbits immediately which is a trope I reallly dislike when it comes to books using mates and bonds.
Overall it was a good read. Plenty of action along with some steamy scenes. The ending seemed a bit rushed though and is just a setup for the next book. I have said previously that I think that an author that ends a book with an actual ending rather than a cliffhanger is a more confident author.
