Kit Colbana—half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades—has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.
So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.
Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.
If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long enough to collect her fee…

Okay. I just want to say that this book was AMAZING. It is one of my favorite books ever now. When I finished it, I ran around the house gushing about it to all my non book- loving family. I told my mother (actual book- lover!) that she was not allowed to read another book until she read it. I also ordered the second book in the series from Amazon before I was even done with this book. You know me. I love a good assassin book. I love a good romance with a hot guy. I love the romantic and sexual tension. I also love all the paranormal factions mixing and the discontent! I love the discontent and the imperfect society. I just love it all. Now, I just want you to know that I waited a day to write my review because I did not want to overwhelm you too much in my ranting and raving. My obsession has faded but I still adore this book and the characters... I love the characters!
Kit: I love Kit's back story and I love her all the more for her rough life. She is a bad ass aneira (well, ok. She is half aneira/ half human. aneira is like an Amazonian. You know, a bad- ass, take no prisoners warrior woman!! Like Wonder Woman. :P ) She is just so incredibly easy to love. Well, for me anyway. I am a big fan of sarcasm and bravery in my characters and she has those characteristics by the ton! :D But she is also half human so she has her weaknesses as well. She is not perfect- far from it actually- and she knows it. She is one of the coolest characters I have come across (that I can remember... I read a lot. lol.) I mean, her fight scenes aren't nearly as bad- ass as other femme fatales I have read about. Which by the way are my favorite! Bad- ass chicks who are assassins(slash private detectives) or thieves or pirates or... or.. or something equally as awesome. Or just a woman who is not afraid to stand up to people who would stand in her way. Kit is NOT afraid to say what is on her mind, regardless of the consequences. And her smart mouth gets her into trouble plenty- Something frequently annoying Damon, (hunka- hunka. O.O. :D)her appointed guard for her current assignment.
Damon. Damon, Damon, Damon. I <3 you. At first, you pissed me off a little. But then you showed me your true colors. And it was not an unbelievable magical transition. You were still you... I just understood you better and LOVE you for it. I absolutely adore some of the things you say. You can be a real charmer when you want to be. I am going to stop talking like I am addressing Damon. I am starting to freak myself out! ...I love how he is still flawed. Okay, really flawed. He may be beautiful- as Kit refers to him in the book. (That girl is crazy. I love it!), but he is sort of a major jackass- but in a forgivable way. You know what I mean. (: He is great. <3
I love the banter and fighting that goes on in this book. There are too many quotes I could have shared.. but since it was not an eBook, I could not highlight them. (: Oh well! You probably wouldn't have found them as amusing as me anyway. I have a twisted/sarcastic sense of humor. ;)
I love the way this book was written. You know how some books have this funky style that distracts you from the actual story. This book is written in Kit's perspective and I could find no fault in the way it was written. This may still be the gushing left over from yesterday taking over, but hey. <shrug> There were however, some typos in the book. Yes, I notice these things and remember them. I am aware, I am a freak. O.O It was small things and there were only 3. maybe 4. but I am pretty positive of 3. and they were just things like...: [and then I got into the into the car.] Which threw off the flow of the story, but was not enough to stop me from flipping pages like a mad- woman to find out what would happen next. The story is not over, but not to worry! The sequel is on it's way! :D UPS/MAIL LADY, we never give you enough credit. But we book lovers <3 you! :D <glare> as long as you don't lose our books. Or deliver them all bent or crumpled. Or wet. Or leave our mailboxes open after you deliver our books. I hate that! I mean...someone smashed my mailbox in with a baseball bat and it won't stay closed unless you push on it..... but still. The crazy cat lady next door may see a package and steal my dang books! D: (getting weird now. Gonna stop.) Back to the subject at hand... LOVED THIS BOOK!
