I was surprise by this book. I enjoyed the story line, as it was a lot more gritty, and less fantastical than one usually gets with urban fantasy/paranormal books.
The characters were great, Kyrie is strong and doesn't take crap from anyone, Tom is a clueless sweetheart, Keith is a shape shifter fanboy that totally embodies every paranormal fan out there, that he just makes you want to smile. Then there's Rafiel, cop, ladies man, lion... The make-up of all the characters, backgrounds and interactions felt real, like its something you could actually come across in your own everyday life.
That there were 2 plots, 2 bad guy groups left the story tangled up a bit. Like there should have been 2 books instead of 1. The author was also very into describing every thought our characters had, but sometimes got off track from what was happening. I found myself skimming pages over, to find where the story picked up again.
All in all, I thought it was a good story. If the wordy self dialogue had been cut down, and the plots not been twisted, I would have liked it a lot more.
