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 to collect her fee…

Warning: gushing review ahead.

This book had everything I was looking for: sarcasm, wit, hot and steamy characters and non-stop action. There is some profanity, quite a bit in spots, but it fits the feel of the story at those moments.

Kat is a fierce and strong heroine. She had a horrible childhood that she has put a lot of effort into overcoming. I want to know more about it, both what happened and how she escaped. She has a unique paranormal ability and is both extremely lucky and unlucky. I love how she has a soft spot for kids, it adds a weakness to an overwise strong character.

My favourite part was Kitty-Cat Barbie. The nickname alone was awesome, but all of Kat’s internal ravings about her were hilarious.

Demon Damon is hot! His continously evolving nicknames for Kat were endearing while offering an insight into his feelings.

Overall, this was a great urban fantasy story. I want more Kat and more Damon and more of the witty sarcasm that was sprinkled throughout the book. Basically, I just want more,  period.
