Publisher's Summary

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.

A must read urban fanasty

Would you listen to Nightshifted again? Why?

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


What other book might you compare Nightshifted to and why?

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.


Which scene was your favorite?

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.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes


Any additional comments?

I hope this will become a series.

What a great story!!!!

I must say that I purchased this book not really knowing what to expect. The reviews on it were mixed. I have to say it was great! So much so that I was downloading book two before I finished the first. There are wereanimals, shape shifters, vampires and some really cool new creatures. There was humor, sex, great dialog and great characters. The narration is perfect for the characters in the story. I have already finished book two and I am REALLY hoping that there will be MORE! Worth the credit or the price. I'll be looking for more by this author :)
