Most humans have no idea that a dark and deadly underworld, filled with magic and monsters, exists. They wander through life blissfully ignorant of the supernatural world around them. Nora Jacobs is different. Nora knows exactly what kinds of hellish creatures haunt the streets of Detroit. Thanks to a unique set of psychic abilities, Nora has managed to steer clear of the underworld most of her life. But all that changes the night the most powerful vampire in the city discovers her gifts and decides to use her as a tool to find one of his missing clan members.

I liked the book until the end, when the exhausted heroine had to boost the men’s attitudes. It began to feel like a reverse harem book and made the “men” seem like boys that needed a mother figure.

There was too much of the 2 main characters mooning over their lost love. I was interested more in the mystery but the story moved too slow and made me hate the female main character. Interesting with the talking furniture and the female’s reserve talent but that took the backseat to a stupid love affair that I would rather wasn’t included. The narrator was ok but it didn’t sound like she had much of a range and the main characters sounded very similar.
