From debut author Cassie Alexander comes a spectacular new urban fantasy series where working the night shift can be a real nightmare.
Nursing school prepared Edie Spence for a lot of things. Burn victims? No problem. Severed limbs? Piece of cake. Vampires? No way in hell. But as the newest nurse on Y4, the secret ward hidden in the bowels of County Hospital, Edie has her hands full with every paranormal patient you can imagine - from vamps and were-things to zombies and beyond.
Edie’s just trying to learn the ropes so she can get through her latest shift unscathed. But when a vampire servant turns to dust under her watch, all hell breaks loose. Now she’s haunted by the man’s dying words - Save Anna - and before she knows it she’s on a mission to rescue some poor girl from the undead - which involves crashing a vampire den, falling for a zombie, and fighting for her soul. Grey’s Anatomy was never like this.
In addition to being a writer, Cassie Alexander is an active registered nurse in California. Nightshifted is her debut novel.
“The best debut I’ve read all year. Nightshifted is simply amazing!” (Kat Richardson, best-selling author of the Greywalker series)
“A winner of a debut novel.” (Kate Elliott, author of the Cold Magic series)
“Medical drama and vampire cold wars intersect in this solid urban fantasy debut.… Alexander’s zombies are particularly well designed, and the hospital environment adds an intriguing additional dimension.” (Publishers Weekly)

A must read urban fanasty
Yes. It was so funny and amusing to view the world from Edie's view point. She cares and respect her paranormal patients. When others would turn their backs on a paranormal patient she goes the extra miles
The Rook by Daniel O'Malley. Both book have strong female characters who find themselves in unusal situations, paranormal, and deal with it with aplomb. They grit their teeth and use common sense and creativity. They are both confused of the inability of "regular folks" to make sense of their world.
When Edie is working on the "normal" ward and a dragon is loose in the hospital. Because she works with paranormal patients and seen paranormal incidents she is protecting herself by locking herself and the patients in the bathroom. A regular nurse is trying to make logical sense of the rising temperature and noise; when in essence Edie tells her to get a grip.
I hope this will become a series.
What a great story!!!!
