Publisher's Summary

They thought they could destroy House Sinister for good, but they weren’t expecting her...Evangeline, a hellion born with the gifts of dual-blades and advanced magic not seen for over a century, had been living a great life as a Guard at House Sinister for many years.

But her world is shattered when three rival Houses attack, forcing her to watch powerlessly as her mentor and father figure, Garrick, is slaughtered. His dying command: The House must survive at all costs. With Evangeline being the only remaining member, that means she must survive a full year. It's the only way to restore honor to House Sinister.

Pissed that she has to leave, Evangeline obeys Garrick's final words and escapes, fleeing the Netherworld to a place called Los Angeles.

As a hellion, she must find a normal to possess, since that's the only way to hide from the assassins who are hot on her trail.

Too bad she catches the eye of the Black Ops Paranormal Police Dept.

Lovely.

In exchange for keeping her secret, she agrees to be their assassin, but she's damn sure going to bitch about it. There's a glaring problem with joining the PPD...a hellion wielding crushing magic and blazing dual-blades is like a Tasmanian devil on crack.

Definitely not low-key.

Evangeline will play this game of assassin for now, but her mission - her true mission - is to exact revenge on the Houses who destroyed her world and shattered her life. Though, she must admit, killing a few of the bastards now won't suck.

When her year on the run ends, she will bring pain and death...

The Paranormal Police Department has delighted thousands of rlisteners with action, adventure, outrageous (and often offensive) comedy, and tons of snark. Grab your badge and join the legion of fans who keep begging for more...

Something different yet surprisingly interesting

Somewhat of a different twist to what I am used to reading. This book kept me interested from the beginning to end, though my only complaint is that it was cut short way to quickly. I liked that the heroine was strong, funny and sexy all in one.

$$@! talking guard last of her house

The fight for survival is the hook I really was liking the snarky female who remembers her training and lives it I hope audible continues the series amd that the books are longer and not shorter worth checking out but I hate the wait unless there is more than on book of series kind of short as well not getting very far into plot she has a year and this was maybe three weeks being generous

Incredible dark journey

This book kept me enthralled right from the start. It comes out swinging from the first chapter. It has a very strong plot line to keep you hinged on every word and the humor will have you shaking your head with laughter. This series is a must listen. Nicole Poole does an excellent job. Her voice work is amazing and shows why she is an award winner.

Great urban fantasy

I had already read this book but it was great to hear a narrator who sounded just like I'd imagine the character Eve to sound. There is a great balance of action, back story and humour with characters who are fun, sarcastic and neither perfect nor pc. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review which I was happy to do as I rely on reviews when making my choices.

Great Beginning

This the first of the PPD Black Ops books shows a darker side to the normal PPD set of series and also a great set of circumstances and characters. High in action and also humour to match i enjoyed this immensely and cant wait for further audios to come out. Narration by Poole is very good and although shes someone new to me i would listen to more by her. I requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts on this for everyone.

Excellent

I received a free code and I am leaving this review voluntarily. Evangeline is a Hellion from the House of Sinister and is the last due to the other 3 houses joining forces to kill them all. She manages to escape the Netherworld and now she must possess a normal and try to stay off the assassins radar for 1 year, then she can return to restore her House. She catches the eye of the Black Op PPD and she agrees to be an assassin for them and in turn they will keep her secret however she was trying to stay under the radar and now that’s not going to be easy. Really enjoyed this and looking forward to see how Evangeline deals with her new life .

***Hilarious and none stop action***

This book is a wonderful surprised, wow I thought it would be a serious action story but omg the witty banter between our fmc and the rest of the characters kept me laughing out loud. I even read a line to my son when those two boys thought they summoned Eve and she has to lay with them, I crack up and laughed myself silly and even my son laughed too. Nicole Poole she is brilliant and perfect as eve. I highly recommend this book it's very fast paced and kick ass.
