Now she’s a fugitive, piecing together her memory, trying to deal some serious justice—and discovering that she has only three days to solve her own murder before the reincarnation spell wears off. Because in three days Evy will die again—but this time there’s no second chance.
When Evangeline Stone wakes up naked and bruised on a cold slab at the morgue—in a stranger’s body, with no memory of who she is and how she got there—her troubles are only just beginning. Before that night she and the two other members of her Triad were the city’s star bounty hunters, mercilessly cleansing the city of the murderous creatures living in the shadows, from vampires to shape-shifters to trolls. Then something terrible happened that not only cost all three of them their lives but also convinced the city’s other Hunters that Evy was a traitor—and she can’t even remember what it was.
Perhaps I just had too many expectations about this one, I mean it was good, but it wasn’t great. I am sure many will and have loved this book, but, there the but is again. How to say this, sure if the next book was given to me I would read it, but would I go out of my way to get it, no.
Oh see, now you all think I did not enjoy it. Cos I did. It was fast paced filled with questions and some sexual tension. Evy was as kick-ass as anyone. She had three days to live and she was going to get to the bottom of things, instead of living life to the fullest for those last three days. Her love-interest was Wyatt, her handler, all sweet and, oh that man just loved her from afar. Great guy. Then there was the myriad of other beings, elves, evil goblins, vampires, weres and all different things that lived and hunted in that city.
Great worldbuilding, cool story, some awesome ass-kicking, what weren’t there to love. Still, why did I not love it as much as I could since UF is for me…perhaps it was the stress of wanting to finish a book this week. I am not used to stress-reading. I may have ruined the book for me.
In the end I would still recommend this book to fans of UF. It just was so cool, and I do know that there are some UF books that I have thought to be ok and that later have become awesome. So perhaps this is one of those.
I will leave it with that I do hope to read book 2 one day and find out.
This one is hard, cos it was still good and a page-turner so…good
