    A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne's Directorate of Other Races, an organization created to police the supernatural races, and protect humans from their depredations. While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, a.k.a. assassin, Riley is merely an office worker, until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn't be worse.

    Overall

    Honestly, I got this selection some time ago and liked it very much. Enough so that I keep checking for more from the author. But since it wasn't the best or worst I ever read I didn't review it. With all the recent bad reviews tho I felt compelled to correct my lapse. Like I said, this is a very good book. But don't try to compare it to Southern Vampire, Anita Blake, or other similar series. The author has taken a fresh look at vampires and weres and like many other recent entries in the genre done a fair amount of... shall we say 'pick and choose' with the 'rules' that govern these creatures. No, it is not a selection that will rivet you to the headphones but I don't think it should be passed by either.

    One item of note. Many of the other reviews hammer on the sex scenes in this book. They are there, and they are (fortunately or not) becoming a standard for the genre. However unlike recent Anita Blake novels (which I also enjoy) they do not overwhelm and consume 50%+ of the book. If you don't care for this primal aspect I suggest you look to another genre.
