Smart, sexy, and supernatural—the men and women of the Otherworld live unseen among us. For the most part, mere mortals never suspect their existence—and that’s the way they want it. But now a reckless killer has torn down the wall between our worlds, trapping one very vulnerable, and very mortal, woman in the supernatural cross fire. Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles shortly after her young husband’s sudden and unexpected death. Her hope was that her hectic new life as the PR consultant to a spoiled celebutante would provide a distraction from her grief. But when her client is murdered, Robyn finds herself on the run as the prime suspect. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems only her friend, tabloid journalist Hope Adams, is on her side. But Hope and her somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl know it’s just a matter of time before Robyn is caught. For she’s gotten herself in the middle of a turf war between two Otherworld races who’ll spill any amount of blood—human and inhuman—to protect what they consider theirs for eternity. And the only way Hope can save her friend is by letting her enter a world she’s safer knowing nothing about.

Almost all the other books are written from a female f...
This was a fantastic twist in the Otherworld series. Humans thrown into the fray made the book an even more compelling read than usual. I felt really connected to Robyn and loved the different paranormal characters trying to keep her alive.
I think this was my least favorite in the series, so far. :(
I should say I really dislike the character of Hope in this series. It must say something good about Armstrong's talent for creating characters that I have this reaction. I can't stand Hope and that made it impossible for me to finish this book. Mostly because Hope is mentally worrying all the ti...
3.5*s. Not my favorite in the series but still a decent enough read. There are a lot of different POV in this one and with the short chapters I felt like it was the literary equivalent of shaky-cam. Hope & Karl have never been my favorite couple in this world and having so many other people tell ...
