I like detective novels and I also like supernatural stories so I thought I’d give this book a try. It has a really good story line, Vicky is half vampire and witch and is being hunted by a killer of supernatural beings. As the story unfolds you see Vicky coming into her own as she discovers her untested powers and inner strength. I also like how it has supernatural elements but nothing over the top, like Vicky’s nan says, “Magic, no matter how small the spell, comes with a price”. -Amazon Review
Vicky Smithton is a young detective in a small quiet city. Her mother was a vampire, that is all she knows about her and her father was a witch. Half-bloods are forbidden so she grew up in hiding raised by her witch grandmother who has been protecting and teaching her how to control her abilities and urges.
One day, after her grandmother and her friend, find a body everything in her life starts to change…
A new partner and a serial killer opens up a can of family secrets…
Vicky’s grandma, a powerful witch got involved in a car accident, done intentionally by a serial killer known to hunt supernatural beings. His streak of killings have been mounting since a decade now, only to be revealed by this car accident. So far, Vicky has been guarded by the fairies in her town and the humans at her work. Her special house and her mage grandma had veiled her from all the vulnerabilities. But now that she is not around, Vicky is on an emotional train wreck, prone to all the possible dangers which include this serial killer who only hunts for the supernatural beings.
Things look normal as she is covert and successful at keeping her identities below the surface and away from the eyes of the normal humans, including Liam, a lieutenant who comes in the picture, moving towns after a divorce and is Vicky’s new partner on this case. Liam is the her support system for her as they both work with their allies; fairies, elves, goblins, etc. to find the serial killer.
Things are not as simple as they seem due to the strong network the killer has around, and Vicky along with her friends faces hurdles and goes through the hustle and bustle before finding clues which could uncover the prints of the killer. But the work needs strong network and information which only FBI could provide; thus, Liam and Vicky use their sources to work along with the FBI and get one step closer to track down the killer.
