I enjoy the books, but am really lukewarm towards the characters and man, what a tepid romance angle. I guess the best way to describe how I feel about these books is to note that I purchase when available, then hold on to them to fill in the time while I'm waiting for another book to get published.

So I guess its a meh!

Victory Vaughn is a shapeshifter and demon killer. She might be the last of her kind if her young niece doesn't inherit shapeshifting which her sister really hopes she won't.

After a plague hit Boston and turned most of the citizens into zombies, the human government created an enclave called Deadtown for the inhuman and undead residents. Since then, residents have been fighting for their rights which is a real uphill battle.

Vicky's sometime boyfriend Kane is a werewolf lawyer really concerned about winning rights for all inhuman and undead residents. Currently, Massachusetts is one of the few US States were residents of Deadtown have some limited rights. The current race for governor could change that as the leading candidate is extremely opposed to any more rights and freedoms for people he calls "monsters."

Vicky is more concerned about making a living than politics. She is hired by the haunted wealthy to rid their dreams of various demons that cause nightmares. However when helping her latest client who happens to be a gangster and a supporter of the anti-inhuman governor candidate, she encounters the demon who killed her father and marked her.

She learns that the demon has been bound by a human sorcerer. It makes Vicky determined to find the demon and send it back to hell and to find the sorcerer too.

There is another problem too. A fanatic human scientist wants to study Vicky and her family and goes so far as to kidnap Vicky's ten-year-old niece. Since it isn't certain that the niece is human or like Vicky, human law is taking a wait-and-see approach leaving the rescue to Vicky and one police officer who is one her side.

This was an engaging and entertaining urban fantasy story with an interesting main character. I enjoyed this story which begins a series.

Better than I'd feared. The first chapter or two were questionable, but it sucked me in as I tried to figure out the geography of Deadtown, and I ended up enjoying it. The world is a little full, but she sticks to the usual supernatural rules, overall, so it's not hard to follow, just full.

I unfairly judged this book by its cover before reading it. Lucky for me, I liked it anyway!

Good pacing, interesting new fantastical elements, and just enough romance.

I was a bit annoyed at how many different plot elements there seemed to be, but they tied together nicely, even if predictably.
