She can heal her own wounds. She can nail a monster to a wall. But there’s one danger Evangeline Stone never saw coming. Been there. Done that. Evy Stone is a former Dreg Bounty Hunter who died and came back to life with some extraordinary powers. Now all but five people in the world think she is dead again, this time for good—immolated in a factory fire set specifically for her. Evy and Wyatt, her partner/lover/friend, can no longer trust their former allies, or even the highest echelons of the Triads—the army of fighters holding back from an unsuspecting public a tide of quarreling, otherworldly creatures—they can trust only each other. Because when the Triads raided a macabre, monster-filled lab of science experiments and hauled away the remnants, they failed to capture their creator: a brilliant, vampire-obsessed scientist with a wealth of powerful, anti-Dreg weaponry to trade for what he desires most of all—Evy Stone: alive and well, and the key to his ultimate experiment in mad science.

The story is too easy, just the ending of the previous volume.I found a lack of creativity in this one.The four books should have been only 2 or 3 max.
This book is third in a series. If you have not read the previous books, you will probably be very confused.It is very hard for me to decide on a final star rating for this book because I loved some aspects of the story and wasn't so keen on several of the others. Ultimately, I think it balances out...
There was one thing holding me back from loving the first two books in the Dreg City series. That was the fact that Evy, the heroine, could not make peace with the new version of herself that was raised from the dead. She fought her feelings for the man who loved her, alternately pulling him close...
