A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne's Directorate of Other Races, an organization created to police the supernatural races, and protect humans from their depredations. While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, a.k.a. assassin, Riley is merely an office worker, until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn't be worse.

It's basically lycan porn.

The story did have it's merits, although you could see a lot of similarities to other lycan/vamp fiction as you would expect. I found the narrators voice to be a little whiny, and not very erotic which would have been helpful considering the book is profoundly sexual in nature. To be honest, it should probably be classed as erotica, as sex comes up every other sentence.

The story line is half decent, if not a sort of rip off from Underworld, but if you're bored and want to listen to some erotic lycan/vamp fiction then this might be up your street.
