Taz is a member of a very successful rogue-hunting team. The rogues she and her teammates hunt include rogue vampires, ghouls, and shapeshifters, among others. Vampires have been legal citizens in the world for 500 years, but they do still have rogues from time to time.
Taz's partners are Ryan Freemont, who is a very strong psychic, and her former police partner, George Raymond Lees. George was killed when he and Taz were attacked by shapeshifters, causing Taz to become a shapeshifter herself. George was killed, but he's come back as a free-roaming ghost.

I'm a long haul truck driver that fills my drive time with listening to audio books and reviewing them.
Different look at non-humans and what it might be like while learning about all the changes that one would go through
I would if I need to refresh my mind about the characters before listening to the next book.
Taz Bell is amazing. She's willing to take on anyone if she thinks it's the right thing to do. She protects her people, and stays honest with business dealings.
A voice for the characters, it's hard to imagine how they would sound if you are reading it.
At the end~ I was so mad it was over! LOL
I received this book free for a review, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves the genre of shapeshifters.
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
This is a great start to a new series, written by Sharon Green. I'm not going to give any spoilers but just mention that it was a very enjoyable story to listen to. Taz Bell is a shapeshifter but not because she wanted to be. This wasn't the life she had chosen and it has cost her everything. Her family no longer cares if she's alive. Her job as a detective with New York City was over. She even thought her partner George was dead until he returned add a ghost. They teamed up to become hunters. The business is doing great and they have another partner who's a psychic, Ryan. He's really good with his ability of seeing things. The biggest problem for Taz is the Federal Rogue Task Force, who consist of vampires. They want her to work with them in a bad way and it seems everywhere Taz goes they show up to.
The narrator Suzanne Elise Freeman did a great job with her narration of this story. The accents of each character were done really well. She brought this story to life and made it easy to connect to the characters and story. Overall, I give it 5 stars and recommend this story to all. I received this audio in exchange for an honest review.
Yes I definately would. Its funny and exciting. Its very fast paced, it kinda goes from action, too detective work and then some more action.
There were quite a few, but the one that stuck whit me (and almost made me give 4.5 instead of 5 stars) Is the fact that Taz keept denying her Shapeshifter nature. At no point in this book does she come too terms whit it. She does make strides towards acceptance but doesn't quite reach it. Tough it is explained and understandable, but it almost got me depressed. Which is a compliment too the author i suppose =)
She was excellent. One of the best female narrators I've heard. 5/5 for sure.
Its a great Urban Fantasy book tough it isn't quite like many others i've read. While this genre seem too be 9/10 books whit female characters the only other series that could match / best this one would have too be Kate Daniels. Tough it would be a close one. However I will be looking forward too the sequel. My research indicates there are atleast 2 more books that is already out, tough not made into Audiobooks yet.
I was hoping this was another series in which to lose myself. It starts out fairly well, but I wanted to throw it out half way through the book. The explanations for the main character's actions and her dialogue are preachy and extremely judgemental. The words "It's/that's stupid..." are used constantly. I almost downloaded the e-version, just to count how many times "stupid" occurred.
I found the main character unequivocably unlikable, and this was disappointing. I liked the idea of a former police officer turning into a bounty hunter, and maybe my expectations were too high. As the story progressed, I found myself less and less sympathetic to this character.
I would have given it one star, but I still feel this series could be salvaged. It has a decent premise, but it reached the point where I felt "stupid" listening/reading it.
I have no prior experience with the author, and am fairly new to this genre. That being said, I truly enjoyed this book!. It does strongly favor my own prejudices: pro-cop, anti-fed. Ghosts, vampires, and shapeshifters are part of the usual population, but other nasties are not. When local law is out of their depth with the nasties, they need help from the bounty hunter team headed by Taz Bell. The plot is sequential, with several cases and jurisdictions. Verbal visualization is clear. The characters become clearer with each passing "page". A great fun escape!
SEF does a fine audio performance. One would wish that she used a lower tone when voicing men, but as she does a first rate job otherwise, it is non-critical. She has the emotion, cadence, and clear voice that are essential for a good read.
Audiobooks are vital to my current lifestyle, and I am very pleased to have been gifted with this one. Can't wait until the others are recorded!
