When this started I thought it was going to be another over complicated book, how wrong can one be. I did give up after the first half hour, but return for another try a few days later. Once back listening I could not stop. It has only taken a few days to hear because I wanted to saver the experience. The author has created a remarkable world, well worth taking the time to listen.

For Raven Black, hunting criminals is second nature. So is denial. It's not easy moving forward with one foot stuck in the past. But a new case offers her a much-needed distraction when Keystone accepts their toughest assignment yet - to track down an elusive criminal who's selling children on the black market. Their investigation leads them deep into the underbelly of the Breed world, a place both treacherous and enticing. With no room for mistakes, Raven makes a tough decision to lock the door to her past before it interferes with her job.

She is the Socialmedialite, anonymous creator of New York's Finest and the Internet's darling. Virtual reality is Annie's forte, but actual reality? Not so much.

Detective Jake Daggers likes his murder investigations the way he likes his women - straightforward, easy, and with a killer body. So when his older-than-dust partner throws his back out on a goblin raid, his captain assigns him a new running mate - a sexy young half-elf by the name of Shay Steele. It seems like a match made in Daggers' imagination, but Steele's no pushover. She's a powerful forensic psychic, and she's got sass oozing out of her boots. In a debut case teeming with fire mages, foundries, and a dead guy who's crispier than bacon, it's pretty clear Daggers isn't the only one getting a heaping helping of RED HOT STEELE.
