    Bo Blackman is a rookie private investigator working for the London based firm of Dire Straits. She doesn't often get triber-based assignments, which is just as well. Vampires and daemons don't interest her as much as humans do... However, when she has to serve a summons on a dodgy daemon called Devlin O'Shea and she ends up saving his life instead of being framed for his murder, her life takes a shocking turn for the worse.

    Uneven story

    Parts were skimmed over that should have been elaborated, making the story feel uneven. A lack of secondary characters development, they feel quite fl..Show More »

    Bo Blackman is not adjusting to her new life as a fledgling vampire particularly well. Drinking blood sickens her and, despite her new enhanced physical skills and the attention she's receiving from Lord Montserrat, she's desperate to find a cure. When her illegal search takes her to the door of Fingertips and Frolics, a small family-run magic shop, she becomes embroiled in a dangerous game of tit-for-tat with murderous consequences.

    Fun and exciting

    Despite some less then ideal turns of events for Bo, the story maintains a slightly gloomy feeling to it while keeping you thoroughly entertained. It ..Show More »

    It may be less than a month since the doors of New Order opened, but that doesn't mean Bo Blackman isn't busy. It's not just daft allegations about vampire dogs and complicated relationships that she has to deal with, however.

    Love this series!

    With the dust still settling from the brutal attack on the Agathos court and Rogue's school, Bo Blackman is forced to live with her new-found status as a celebrity. She's still determined, however, to track down those responsible - and to solve the mystery of Tobias Renfrew, the daemon billionaire who disappeared over fifty years ago. Her investigations will lead her to places as far removed as a military base and the sinister Black Market. One thing is for sure - once Bo's done, nothing will ever be the same again.

    Action packed

    It's no more Miss Nice Vampire. Bo has turned her back on everything that's familiar and is now working for X, the dangerous Kakos daemon who demands that his identity be kept a secret. She's prepared to do just about anything to clean the streets of London of its crime, and she's no longer sure if she cares who gets hurt in the process. However, the vampire Families aren't going to be that easy to ignore. Lord Medici is continuing with his cold-blooded power bid while Michael is determined not to let Bo forget him.

    I'm hoping next book in the series explains this ending!

    I'm totally confused by the ending of this #5 book. Series sometimes fall into the trap of having to out shock the last book in each remaining one. T..Show More »

    Smoke is still rising from the brutal and unnecessary destruction of the five vampire families...and Bo is in hiding. She won't be able to keep herself away for long, however. An old case and old rivalries rise to the surface and force her to face not just the new realities which London presents, but the darkness that continues to dwell inside her. And then there's the small matter of bitter revenge to consider, too.

    Pretty decent finish

    Loved it! Would have loved to have more details about what happens next, but heard this is the last book in the series 😢
