Publisher's Summary

Taz is a member of a very successful rogue-hunting team. The rogues she and her teammates hunt include rogue vampires, ghouls, and shapeshifters, among others. Vampires have been legal citizens in the world for 500 years, but they do still have rogues from time to time.
Taz's partners are Ryan Freemont, who is a very strong psychic, and her former police partner, George Raymond Lees. George was killed when he and Taz were attacked by shapeshifters, causing Taz to become a shapeshifter herself. George was killed, but he's come back as a free-roaming ghost.

Preachy and annoyingly "It's, that's stupid"

I was hoping this was another series in which to lose myself. It starts out fairly well, but I wanted to throw it out half way through the book. The explanations for the main character's actions and her dialogue are preachy and extremely judgemental. The words "It's/that's stupid..." are used constantly. I almost downloaded the e-version, just to count how many times "stupid" occurred.

I found the main character unequivocably unlikable, and this was disappointing. I liked the idea of a former police officer turning into a bounty hunter, and maybe my expectations were too high. As the story progressed, I found myself less and less sympathetic to this character.

I would have given it one star, but I still feel this series could be salvaged. It has a decent premise, but it reached the point where I felt "stupid" listening/reading it.

Real life is not as bad as what Taz faces!

I have no prior experience with the author, and am fairly new to this genre. That being said, I truly enjoyed this book!. It does strongly favor my own prejudices: pro-cop, anti-fed. Ghosts, vampires, and shapeshifters are part of the usual population, but other nasties are not. When local law is out of their depth with the nasties, they need help from the bounty hunter team headed by Taz Bell. The plot is sequential, with several cases and jurisdictions. Verbal visualization is clear. The characters become clearer with each passing "page". A great fun escape!
SEF does a fine audio performance. One would wish that she used a lower tone when voicing men, but as she does a first rate job otherwise, it is non-critical. She has the emotion, cadence, and clear voice that are essential for a good read.
Audiobooks are vital to my current lifestyle, and I am very pleased to have been gifted with this one. Can't wait until the others are recorded!
