Blurb:

A werewolf killer. A paranormal murder. How many times can Emma Bellamy cheat death?

I’m one placement away from becoming a fully-fledged London detective. It’s bad enough that my last assignment before I qualify is with Supernatural Squad. But that’s nothing compared to what happens next.

Brutally murdered by an unknown assailant, I wake up twelve hours later in the morgue – and I’m very much alive. I don’t know how or why it happened. I don’t know who killed me. All I know is that they might try again.

Werewolves are disappearing right, left and centre.

A mysterious vampire seems intent on following me everywhere I go.

And I have to solve my own vicious killing. Preferably before death comes for me again.

My Review:

I loved the premise of this book, alternate London with a kick-ass heroine who is on her last training placement before qualifying as a detective. Getting sent to the super squad was not part of the plan and ending up in a morgue was definitely not in the program. I really enjoyed a fresh take on supernaturals. While many of the familiar elements are there, the author adds something unique to her supes. 

This is the start of a new and intriguing series that I, for one, will gladly follow. 

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
