Vampire Alexis Black is on a mission - to rejoin the human race. Coerced into signing an ironclad contract by an angel-with-attitude, Alexis must hunt down and assassinate at least one vampire, werewolf, or creepy crawly every night for 50 years to become human again. Too bad the contract didn’t mention the badass vampire who now rides shotgun in her brain, insatiable bloodlust, or her new I-hate-everything-with-fangs sidekick. If she can fulfill her end of the bargain, her humanity is restored, if not she will be destroyed.

I thought this book was interesting for sure. I like how the story has played out so far. The only thing I wasn't pleased with is I felt like I missed a previous book. In my opinion, some of the story felt like I was starting it in the middle. I was able to piece everything together as things went along though so it all worked out!

Wizard scouts are the greatest fighting force the galaxy has ever seen, but after years of war between the Intergalactic Empire and the bat-like Crosoians, the wizard scout corps numbers have dropped to near extinction levels. One of the few remaining wizard scouts is Richard Shepard. In an all-or-nothing gambit, the bats have gathered the largest fleet of warships the galaxy has ever seen to destroy the weakened humans once and for all. The Empire's only hope for survival may well lie on the shoulders of Richard and the crew of the recon ship Defiant.

In a not-too-distant future ripe with marvels of technological convenience, wage and work disparity are as rampant as they ever were. A new game makes a claim that's bolder than its competition: So long as players are logged in, they'll have extra time to live. Like most, Corbin has been stunted by the real world. Now that chance has given him a new lease on life in the form of a game, he'll do whatever it takes to pursue it.
