In this exciting debut, author Keri Arthur explodes onto the supernatural scene with a sexy, sensuous tale of intrigue and suspense set in a world where legends walk and the shady paths of the underworld are far more sinister than anyone envisioned. A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne's Directorate of Other Races, an organization created to police the supernatural races-and protect humans from their depredations. While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, a.k.a. assassin, Riley is merely an office worker-until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn't be worse. More werewolf than vampire, Riley is vulnerable to the moon heat, the weeklong period before the full moon, when her need to mate becomes all-consuming.... Luckily Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her every need. But she will have to control her urges if she's going to find her brother....Easier said than done as the city pulses with frenzied desire, and Riley is confronted with a very powerful-and delectably naked-vamp who raises her temperature like never before. In matters carnal, Riley has met her match. But in matters criminal, she must follow her instincts not only to find her brother but to stop an unholy harvest. For someone is doing some shifty cloning in an attempt to produce the ultimate warrior-by tapping into the genome of nonhumans like Rhoan. Now Riley knows just how dangerous the world is for her kind-and just how much it needs her. From the Hardcover edition.

I first picked up this book when I was hurrying to grab some books from the library for a holiday. On reading the back at home I thought that this was not for me but I did read it and to my surprise, loved it.

I usually don't like first person narrative but it really works in this book. You are quickly drawn into Riley's world and her issues. She is very relatable and you sense her drive for a future she wants and the reality that she needs to accept and navigate. There is a lot of sex but strangely it is so part of the character it doesn't seem overly intrusive. I finished the book loving the character and wanting to know her more, while enjoying the fast paced action and multi-layered plot lines.

Keri Arthur writes with great empathy and while the setting is futuristic and paranormal the personal issues and dreams of her characters are those universal to us all. I particularly like that Arthur’s writing is able to lightly brush personal, social and political issues occasionally from her characters perspectives and offers the reader an opportunity think and feel for themselves.

When I read the synopsis for this book, I was intrigued. Half wolf, half vampire chick – interesting! The pace was slow at first but it picked up. By the end of the book, I was hooked! Riley Jenson sounds like a hot, sexy wolf/vampire but the guys she meets, are even hotter and sexier! There's humour, action, drama, romance, supernatural beings - my kind of story. Keri Arthur is a great writer! I'm so glad to have read the first one in the series and can't wait for the next one.
