When the road forks, how do you know which path is the right one? Raven Black hunts evildoers for fun, but her vigilante justice isn't the only reason she's hiding from the law. Half vampire, half mage, she's spent years living as a rogue to stay alive. When a Russian shifter offers her a job in his covert organization hunting outlaws, dignity and a respectable career are finally within her grasp. The catch? Her new partner is Christian Poe - a smug, handsome vampire whom she'd rather stake than go on a stakeout with. They're hot on the trail of a human killer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. One misstep during her probationary period could jeopardize Raven's chance at redemption, and her partner would love nothing more than to see her fail. Dark secrets, unexpected twists, and a blurred line between good and evil will keep you on the edge of your seat. Will Raven find the courage to succeed, or will she give in to her dark nature?

.....I didn't feel it was a solid follow up to the original series.
Dannika Dark has a created a unique world of mages, vampires and interesting characters; however, I was a little disappointed with this spin off. The story is dialogue driven, slow to develop, and it felt more like a YA story. The romance between Raven and Christian Poe was lacking, and I really didn't feel like it was going anywhere. I was hoping for more romance, chemistry and attraction between the character, but instead there was a lot of dialogue and drama. I really liked her other series Seven Years, and absolutely loved Risk. For Dannika Dark fans, this is probably a must listen, but I'm on the fence if I will be continuing the series.
As usual, Nicole Poole does an excellent job narrating. I loved all the different accents she gave the characters.
I used my credit for this story, and kinda wished I had waited to see if it would have been offered as a whispersync deal or on sale.
Interesting plot. Raven Bkack is an outcast and is in desperate very of a job. When she was approached by a Russian shifter, leader of a covert organization fighting against outlaws and bad guys who can escape the law. Christian Poe lays an important part in this organization and he was paired up with Raven. There was a lot of dialogue and not much action in this book but overall it was well written and the narrator Nicole Poole did a good job with different voices for all the characters.
What I really loved about this book is the fact that it dove more into the world around the characters. I got the chance to get to know a little about each breed and their characteristics, even listening to some I've never heard of before. I believe this book would be a good first book to read going into the series blind. And as for the narrator Nicole Poole is my absolute favorite narrator ever!
I have not been disappointed by anything I have read by Dannika Dark. this one is no exception. I cannot wait to see what happens next. I also love how all of her series have a tiein in some way.
Nicole Poole is phenomenal!
I have read every book by Dannika Dark and this one was just as good!! I love the characters! The only bad part is having to wait for the next book in the series to come out.
I loved this book. It is a great start to a new series! Dannika has don't it again! I loved Raven and how she was able to accept who she is as a crossbreed. The chemistry between her and Christian was so electric! It was also full of humor! I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens! ❤❤❤❤❤
I absolutely love dannika dark everything she writes but I have always had a soft spot for Christian. Is this going to be the story for his happy ending or is he going to step back and in this series will Raven go to Nico. I guess I will have to wait for the rest of the series. I really like all the new characters it is set in the world that dannika dark is already made just a new set of characters they all work together to get the bad guys that the law can't quite catch I'm sure there will be several interesting storylines on this one. let's see who is on team Christian or team Nico I am pretty sure that is going to float back and forth a little. awesome read is always love narration can't say good enough stuff about this duet.
The Irish accents are charming.
Raven is a crossbreed who kills her own kind, but she only kills those who hurt humans. She’s kept herself hidden from the authorities for so long that she’s gotten used to being on her own and when someone asks her to put her talents to use, she can’t seem to be the person they are looking for.
This is a brilliant start to a new series, and it has all my favourite elements in starting with romance. This paranormal romance incudes many strong characters and a storyline that pulls on the heartstrings as well as making the reader laugh. Of course, I’ve come to expect nothing less from Dark and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. If you get the opportunity to listen to the audio version you won’t be disappointed.
