Fun, with enough novelty to be interesting

3.5 stars. Neat concept (vampires, or Nightshades, are real and have been around for millennia, but now modern humans have realized this fact), likable characters, and plenty of action. Some of the story is predictable, and the dialog at times feels straight out of a number of buddy FBI story lines (glib, clever). But it doesn't stop it from being entertaining and the added twist of vampires gives the plot enough freshness and novelty to be thoroughly enjoyable. Biggest con of the book is that it is more like novella length and I would have liked more length and depth. But at least the sequel is already out and a third book in the series is slated for later in 2018.

Shortest book ever!

I didn’t notice the book length when I bought it, something I usually pay attention to. Four hours is ridiculously short.

Suspenseful and well written

Really tight storyline, I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
Like all MFO’s books, it’s well written with engaging characters that draw you into the world she’s creating.
