Publisher's Summary

The fae live among us. And one of them is a serial killer.

I thought this would be a simple profiling case. Just another Jack the Ripper wannabe, prowling London’s streets, searching for easy kills. I was wrong. This killer is fae, and he’s as elusive as smoke on the wind. But I’m an FBI profiler, and it’s my job to track him down.

It doesn’t matter that one of the main suspects - a lethally alluring fae - is trying to seduce me...or kill me, I’m not sure which. I won’t be stopped, not even when panic roils through the streets of London or when the police start to suspect me.

As I close in on the killer, I follow him to a magical shadow realm that’s like nothing I ever expected, where I’m hunted like prey. Fine. Bring it on. I’m an FBI Agent. And it turns out I have magical powers of my own.

A new adult urban fantasy, perfect for fans of Karen Marie Moning and Ilona Andrews.

Solid characters, intriguing plot, unique spin

Like many, I don't actually write reviews often, but I enjoyed this book enough to bother. I usually hesitate to read/listen to books with less than 1,000 ratings, but Amazon insisted I would enjoy this one. Turns out, Amazon was right.

I hate books where the heroine makes stupid choices in the name of feminism... this isn't one. I hate books when the characters are predestined and cliche... only a whisper of prophecy. And I hate when I know the ending 5 chapters in... should've guessed it, but totally didn't.

I love this book.

I'm devastated that only one of the series is currently on Audible. Hurry up and get the rest recorded - I need this distraction while I fold laundry!!!

Great new series!

Why does the female characters go in heat when they meet a male love interest? Cassandra is presented as a strong FBI profiler. She goes to London to help the police solve a murder that mimics Jack the Ripper killings. Before she arrives to her hotel, she is called a murder scene. While there, she establishes herself as knowledgeable and professional. She is new to the area and it is night. There is a murder on the loose. Cassandra, the FBI agent, decides to walk to her hotel (a few blocks away) at night, and she still has her luggage. She is losing a fight with a couple of thugs when Rowan, the male protagonist, comes to her assistance. Beaten up and suffering from a possible concussion, when she looks at Rowan she goes in heat.

Why are our female fighters denigrated as sniveling idiots when they are around the romantic lead? The relationship devolves into the predictable pattern of the female being portrayed as a disobedient two-year old. The male will say, let’s take course of action “A” and the female decides to declare her independence and will do the opposite. The female will get into trouble and the male must come to the rescue. The female will have an internal dialogue concerning the trustworthiness of the male. It takes the form of, he saved me so he cannot be the bad guy; I have feelings for him but based on the evidence he must be the bad guy; I have a duty to uphold; he lied or withheld information so he has to be the bad guy. You get the picture.

The action it is good and Cassandra has a unique talent. She gets strength from the fear of others or can manipulate elves through their emotions.

There is also the predictable element of the protagonist (male or female) having an emotional incident in their past that effects their ability to act. Many times, it hinders their objectivity or reveals a hidden truth. While fighting with the London police, and encountering unexplained situations, Cassandra is dealing with fear that she crazy, like her dad.
Her acceptance of magic and use while avoiding the police is a great action sequence. There is the right touch of her inexperience and confusion of the police.

Rowan is an interesting character. As a love interest, you know that he is tall, handsome, strong and can trade the verbal barbs with Cassandra. We see a glimpse of his fairy land. There is fairy bar scene that is reminiscent of The Chalmun's Cantina ("the Star Wars Cantina"). The fictional bar located in the "pirate city" of Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine. I hope the authors used the bar to expand on the colorful characters in the story.

Because of the predictable story lines, I could only give it a 3.5 for story. There are still outstanding standing answers. I find Rowan interesting and Cassandra’s history that I will read the next book.

So where to start

Cassandra gets on my nerves at times, it is annoying how she doesn’t trust Rowan at all I mean yes I get it because of her pass and the type of cases she deals with but come on even someone with half a brain can figure out he is trustworthy. To top it off she can’t even admit she likes him I hate romance books like that and then Gabriel her feelings for him I’m not a fan of love triangles so I can’t figure her feelings out for him and I feel a little iffy about reading the next book. She can’t trust a guy who seems to always help her but constantly goes to the fae bar to get opinions and help from an untrustworthy source yeah I wish I can smack the heroines around

good story

I will be downloading the next book. it started a little slow but definetly proved a good "read" in the end. the narrator is great giving English accents and others to the individual characters. Descriptive language, sexy moments that take you to just the brink of xrated moments so best to listen on head phones of ur embarrassed easily. mild amount of cursing, which is no bother to me. Can't wait for the next book!

Nice find. WOW!!!

I stumbled upon this book by sheer accident. How lucky was I? This book took me on an adventure I didn't even know I wanted at the time. It far surpassed my expectation with its CSI feel and whirlwind of mysteries. I fell in-love the character within first few minutes. No spoilers, Just listen to it or read if that is your fancy.

love the accent, action and the the suspense

just the right amount of magic, steamy romance and who done it plot to keep me interested. the main character Cassandra accepted things pretty fast hich was at first not "realistic" to me but then I appreciated it bc it let the story develop faster. loved the Narrator! nailed it.

Starts slow but ends well

To be honest, I fell asleep during the first half of this book and didn't really feel the need to go back over it when I woke up. The start is slow and a bit bog standard murder mystery, then I missed a bit due to sleep - but once the heroine hits the Fae world things get much more interesting. The story follows a solid, if simple arc and the narration is good (though the Scottish accents are a little Shrek-like). An enjoyable piece of fiction and I look forward to the second book.

Fails to deliver

not very exciting. I found the history of England boring it was as if it was included to prove to the reader that the author knew what they were talking about. I also found the portrayal of the English people to be stereotypical though that might be partly the narrators fault. This is another book that I might borrow from the library but won't pay to read it. the story didn't live up to its potential.

Really enjoyed this book - next in series please!

Found this story good and can’t wait for the next to come out. I do really like Ilona Andrews and her Kate Daniels series too so I think the synopsis was right to recommend this book readers who enjoyed that. I’m going to give the other books by C.N. Crawford a go (despite them not being by Alex Rivers too)

***Kick ass series***

The classic who done it with a twist and full of dark fae magic. Cassandra has no idea that she is a pixie or half fae with her own magic powers which she needed if she wants to solve a serial killer who has same MO as the infamous jack the ripper. It's a fast paced story of magic, power, passion and betrayals and I want more.

Interesting listening

For me this story started a little slow and I found it difficult to like the American FBI agent however once it got into the crimes I got to like the agent and the story became captivating. This first book offers a small taste of the magic world and powers of the agent but does hint at the potential of a greater role for magic in the following books for which I think I will continue. As I said slow start but well worth persevering.

Can’t wait for the next one

First half reminded me a bit of the tv show Whitechapel. Suspenseful and spooky. Very descriptive of bodies. Towards the end it reminded me a bit of the tv show Lost Girl. Learning about Fae politics and society while on the hunt for bad guys. Some steamy kisses but no sex scenes. Listened to it in one day. I really enjoyed the whole story. The narrators were just right for the characters. The mystery of the Jack the Ripper copycat is solved by the end but the mystery surrounding Cassandra’s family and what’s happening in London is left open for future books. I can’t wait for more books.
