Living in small town Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she didn't quite fit in with so-called normal society. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human. Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures alternatively terrifying, beautiful, and deadly- all of which perfectly describe her new "friend," Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire. It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: a dog can heal with a lick; spirits bag your groceries; and whatever you do, never-ever-rub the genie's lamp. If you love Sookie Stackhouse, then you'll want to dive into Nicole Peeler's enchanting debut novel.

Having finished this book last night, I think I can sum up my feelings in a word.Meh.This is not a BAD book, by any stretch. The ideas are sound, the writing is clean, the plot clear and intelligible and it has a really great voice. In another book, I think the writing could probably have been upgra...
What can I say about a book I disliked wholeheartedly? Let's start with the beautiful cover. The cover art is original and unique and definitely stands out amongst many urban fantasy books and is completely accurate to the book. The Book Cover and the intriguing book synopsis got me all excited to ...
I dislike books that blatantly draw off other books/movies/television. And this one did all three. Jane's inner dialogue (sex and the city) got irritating real fast. And the Sookie similarities were just too obvious. I understand that most subjects have been written to death but if you don't have...
