After her twin sister’s brutal murder, former US Army Sergeant Allison “Lex” Luther vowed to protect her niece, Charlie. So when two vampires try to kidnap the baby, it quickly turns into a fight to the death—Lex’s death, that is.
She wakes up to two shocking discoveries: she has miraculously survived the fight, and baby Charlie is a “null,” gifted with the ability to weaken supernatural forces...and a target for creatures who want to control that power. Determined to guarantee her niece’s safety, Lex makes a deal with the local vampires. She sets out with the mysterious—and undead—“fixer” Quinn to track down whoever’s responsible for the kidnapping, sharpening her newfound magic skills along the way. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more dangerous her powers become.
A new series that returns to the world of nulls? Count me in.
I greatly enjoyed the previous series, and this one is off to a promising start. With a tough heroine and lots of action, this story was exciting and thrilling.
Lex was a great heroine. Unlike most Urban Fantasy heroines, she doesn’t have a troubling past, she isn’t an expert in everything paranormal, and she isn’t something really extraordinary. She’s pretty much a regular female, albeit strong and confident, who is thrown into a full new world. She adapts quite well, and it was uplifting to see her battle her way through everything.
This was a great start to the series, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
