Since the 1970s humans have forced supernaturals to live in caged cities. Silver brands embedded in their foreheads identify them by species: a full moon for Vampires, a crescent moon for Shifters, a pair of wings for Fairies, and the list goes on, for each supernatural species has been tagged and categorized by humans.
Lanore Vesta is marked with a silver X, the brand of Mixbreeds, second-class citizens shunned by society. She stays to herself, revealing her ability to create fire only during emergencies. All she wants to do is graduate college and stop having to steal to survive. But when she stumbles upon a murder in progress, she catches the attention of a supernatural killer. Now all she wants is to stop finding dead bodies in her apartment.
Enlisting help from her Were-cheetah ex-boyfriend Meshack and a new mysterious friend named Zulu, she is steered through the habitat’s raunchy nightlife. But their presence sometimes proves to be more burden than help, as they fight for her attention.
While the corpses pile up, and the scent of blood fills the air, Lanore is left wondering: Will she find the psycho or die trying?
Whoa. This was an amazing, super fast paced supernatural novel. Action, murder, magic and a love triangle all come together with a huge bang in this story. Supernaturals have been confined to a caged habitat surrounded and guarded by the military to keep them from escaping. Lanore is a half demon, half fairie “mixie”. There’s a lot of tension between the Pure bloods and the Mixies in the habitat. To top that Lanore is unlucky enough to witness a brutal murder, and then becomes a target of the killer. She’s determined to catch the killer and gets in a few precarious situations along the way. She’s also dealing with feelings for the two men in her life and how they feel about her. That’s where the romance comes in, sort of lol. I wouldn’t say it’s erotica per say, but there are some very strong sexual scenes through out the story. This was a very exciting read and took me very little time to read. I was hooked from page one. Nothing is simple in the habitat and the characters are complex and keep you guessing. There’s still more to the story so I’m pretty hyped to see what happens with Lanore and the other characters in book two!
