Publisher's Summary

If you can't stand the heat...
When New York City unveils a program to roast supernaturals, I wonder if I should be sweating.
The bloodthirsty Arnaud thinks so, and he's insisting that our survival depends on a wizard-vampire alliance. Never mind his history of wanting me dead. Or undead.
Meanwhile, the mayor wants me on his team - an offer that's only slightly less unnerving given our recent clash. So who's really behind the purge? City Hall? The werewolves? Or is it the brainchild of the fae, whose newest advisor to the mayor slipped from my bed and life four months ago?
I'm getting the cold feeling someone's trying to manipulate the program, and me, to set off a larger war, one that could explode through the city.
One thing's for sure. If I don't get my head straight and my magic on, it's going to be a hell of a summer.

A bit trite

Nice writing style, but after several books it becomes apparent that the main character is hopeless. For someone supposed to have not inconsiderable power and education, Professor Croft continues to predictably stumble blindly into the same tight spots and luck his way thru. You'd think he'd either die off or retire from his flailing about. He's got to be the most naive New Yorker ever.

Get a clue.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe. It's an okay listening experience. But it's one of those books I'd borrow from the library so I could take it back. (This is a reaction review for all the books in the series, not just book 3. I need to make this clear.)


What was most disappointing about Brad Magnarella’s story?

The main character, Everson Croft. I listened to all the books and I kept waiting for him to get a clue. To be on the streets, he has no street smarts. Why the character hasn't been killed, except for the whim of the writer, is a mystery beyond me. He lets his guard down too much and he makes worst decisions than a two year old. (I wish I could give specifics, but I don't want to spoil this for others.)


Which scene was your favorite?

When Garcia, the woman detective , helps Croft escape from the cops attempting to take revenge on him for a failed mission.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Not if the character is a naive as written in the books.


Any additional comments?

I have been returning a lot of the recording because I get them, download them, then wish I hadn't . I really want to return this series but I don't want Audible to become suspicious that I am abusing their return policy. Even as I think about the character and the convenient plot devises, I become angry.
