Savannah is a witch, the daughter of a witch and half-demon, and an up and coming private investigator for a supernatural agency. On her first solo case she is investigating the death of three young women. Things start to get complicated fast after Savannah is threatened, the brother of one of the victims becomes a victim himself, and Savannah’s powers start to act up. Will she survive to solve the case?

When I picked this up, I didn’t realize it was part of a series. The cover didn’t say anything about it. That being said, this was a great story that stood alone until right near the end. Then all kinds of characters appeared that obviously came from previous books in the series. I got a bit confused about who was who and what bearing they had on the story. The ending itself made me mad. It stopped without a true ending, like so many series books.

I listened to this as an audiobook, so I had the benefit of a narrator. The voice fit as a 21 year old woman. Youthful and expressive. I didn’t enjoy the voice used for the bad guy near the end though. It was just too over done. But overall, it made for good listening.

  1. I love Kelley Armstrong, but I'm getting a little bored of Savannah now. It's like she's forgotten how to write about anybody else.

    I also didn't think it featured enough of the other characters, aside from maybe a few mentions of Paige and Lucas.

  2. I've yet to read any Kelley Armstrong novels, but I agree it should have stated somewhere that it was part of a series.
