We’re Supernatural Protection & Investigations, known as SPI. Things that go bump in the night, the monsters you thought didn’t exist? We battle them and keep you safe. But some supernatural baddies are just too big to contain, even for us…   When I moved to New York to become a world famous journalist, I never imagined that snagging a job at a seedy tabloid would change my career path from trashy reporter to undercover agent. I’m Makenna Fraser, a Seer for SPI. I can see through any disguise, shield, or spell that a paranormal pest can come up with. I track down creatures and my partner, Ian Byrne, takes them out.   Our cases are generally pretty routine, but a sickle-wielding serial killer has been prowling the city’s subway tunnels. And the murderer’s not human. The fiend in question, a descendant of Grendel—yes, that Grendel—shares his ancestor’s hatred of parties, revelry, and drunkards. And with New Year’s Eve in Times Square only two days away, we need to bag him quickly. Because if we don’t find him—and the organization behind him—by midnight, our secret’s out and everyone’s time is up. FIRST IN A NEW SERIES

Somewhat less amusing than the novella introducing the world would lead you to believe. Not sure about a second Seer going by the name of Mac - thousands of names and you picked that one as a nickname? At least she's teamed with a human. Pondering a bit. It's a bit of MIB with a side order of errr...

3.0 The Grendel Affair
This is the beginning of a love affair between me and Ms. Shearin's writing. I first came upon this author when reading an anthology. She made me laugh with the office flair. Horny leprechauns only made me laugh harder. This world is fascinating and promises to bring a great reading enjoyment as...

5.0 Review- The Grendel Affair
The first full length adventure of Makenna Fraser is sure to be one of the most enjoyable books of 2015. Shearin has made imminent death and destruction a whole lot of fun. Mac is the seer for the New York office of Supernatural Protections & Investigations, a small town girl who moved to New York...
