Publication: 24th May 2012

Pages: 211
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Age Appropriate: Young Adult
Someone is kidnapping and incinerating otherworlders beyond recognition, and detective Marisol Whitman, a succubus, races to find the murderer before he claims another victim. But her pursuit is derailed when her responsible younger sister vanishes. Marisol suspects foul play and enlists support from an unlikely source: an agent from the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency, Valerio Costa.

When the trail pointing to everyone from vampires to witches dries up, Agent Costa admits to knowing more than he’s shared. Marisol’s sister’s kidnapper harnesses more magic than she can imagine—and they’re running out of time. To find her sister before her powers are drained and twisted beyond recognition, Marisol must connect the dots between cases and put her trust in Costa, a salamander who may burn her before she can solve either case.
My Thoughts.
I'd never heard of this author or series before starting this book but was intrigued by the title, and I can say after finishing this in about 3 hours or so that I absolutely loved it, the only problem being that I didn't realise this was the second book in the series but luckily enough you can get by without reading it and the world that this book is set in is explained and it's easy to follow along the storyline.
The story focuses on Marisol a succubus who is a detective in the police department, she is partnered up with Valerio Costa who works for the OWEA (Otherworlder Enforcement Agency) after her younger sister Elaine (also a succubus) doesn't return home one night and with her sister being the responsible type she immediately knows that something is wrong, Costa informs her that there has been a spate of missing succubi and that they are being sold as sex slaves, she is also helping on another case involving Otherworlder victims being burnt beyond recognition, burnt so bad that they can't even tell what kind of Otherworlder it is, Marisol finds that there seems to be quite a few bodies like this found around quite a few states and that they may tie in some way to her missing sister's case.
I loved the assortment of different Otherworldly types in this series your usual succubi, vampires, witches and some new ones including Salamanders which Costa happens to be who can produce fire , although the better they are with their powers the resistance to  fire themselves lessens.
I loved the chemistry between the two leads in this story and just wished that the story was longer, so involved in the story I was disappointed when it ended.
It's not often that I find a book that I'm so involved in that I finish it in one sitting but the fantastic storyline had me burning through the pages desperate to see what was going to happen next.
Everybody needs to give this series a go you won't be disappointed.
I give this 4/5.
A Big Thanks To Entangled Publishing.


  1. This sounds really good. I've never read a succubus story. I love/hate it when stories are so good that when it ends you're left wanting more.

  2. I know you get some books that should just finish way before they do and then you get others that are just so good they end way too soon.
