Jessica Grant knows vampires only too well. She runs the York Council tracker programme making sure that Otherworlders are all where they should be, keeps the filing in order and drinks far too much coffee.
To Jess, vampires are annoying and arrogant and far too sexy for their own good, particularly her ex-colleague Sil, who’s now in charge of Otherworld York. When a demon turns up and threatens not just Jess but the whole world order, she and Sil are forced to work together.
But then Jess turns out to be the key to saving the world, which puts a very different slant on their relationship.
The stakes are high. They are also very, very pointy and Jess isn’t afraid to use them – even on the vampire she’s rather afraid she’s falling in love with …
I must admit I don’t know a lot about vampires and Otherworlders but this being the second vampirey book I’ve read recently, I’m starting to get the hang of it all.
I really enjoyed Jane Lovering’s style of writing, it’s witty, direct and sometimes ‘smart-mouthed’. It is also fun and fast with lots going on right from the get-go.
The plot gradually unfolds with surprises along the way – I wasn’t ever sure what was going to happen next.
Sil was a great character and I loved the chemistry between him and Jess, the tension between them was portrayed really well and I looked forward to scenes with both of them in.
An exciting climax to the end of a fast paced novel laced with humour.
