"Great Story/ snoozer narration"
Stripped of her Silver Scale, made a pariah by the Summit, and with a price tag the size of Kentucky on her head, Ayala is on her own. Gregor Gaskin is still missing, and when Ayala discovers he’s far outside the Mediator territory line, she'll have to unravel one of the Summit's most closely kept secrets to track him. Finding Gregor will take her far from home, but catching him might hit her right where she lives - and Gregor’s plans may just release hell on Earth before she can stop him.

But when a rash of disappearances leads her to discover that Nashville’s hellkin are spawning a new race of monster on human hosts, Ayala will be the first line of defense against these day-walking killers. That is until one of them saves her life.
"Paranormal Urban Fantasy without the explicit sex"
The National People's Voice speaks for Sanmarian and all of Kael. For 15 years, they have ruled Kael in relative peace. For 15 years, they have quietly snuffed out dissent wherever they found it. Rose Abernethy and Beo Mataya are two strangers drawn together by one thing alone: Red Sunrise, a book no one else seems to have read. A book only two types of people ever ask about - collectors...and the NPV. A book both Rose and Beo feel was written just for them.
After months of training a budding army of human/demon hybrids, Ayala and Carrick have worked out most of their differences. Who gets to use the bathroom first in the morning. Who'll feed the bunny before they go out to make mayhem. Who gets to keep the jeeling claw they found in Forest Hills. You know, the important stuff.
