While a lot of the content might be familiar to you lovers of the supernatural, her characters are certainly not one dimensional. A great deal of depth exists in every one of them. The strength of her characters, the well written action sequences and the attention to details makes this reviewer want to seek out her other works and fill in the rest of the story that I have missed out on.
Alex Stone is a character that we all want to see something of ourselves in. The ex-assassin/monster hunter turned fashion company CEO certainly has her fair share of challenges in life, between balancing what she was and what she wants to be as well as her own past that keeps on haunting her like some of the demons she has put down. Her complexity really drives the story forward and if you like action with a supernatural twist and more than a dash of spicy moments then you’ll probably want to pick up book one and this one, both of which are part of The Dagger Chronicles series.

As the Dagger, Alex Stone hunted down supernatural threats on covert ops team, Night Command. After the capture of a particularly bad-ass vampire, Tristan Ambrose, Alex gets out of the game. In the years following her departure, Alex started a hot new clothing line and moved on with her life. She was happy pretending the supernatural didn’t exist, but, with Tristan’s escape, she’s pulled back into the game.
Alex is hired to continue guarding the very tempting body of Jason Stavros–up-and-coming vampire politico–alongside her new team, The Trackers. Stavros is scheduled to head to an international conference of the supernatural community in Bucharest, and Alex and her new team must keep him safe while investigating new threats, and ghosts from the past.
