Empress Angelica Mancini, is enjoying her reign over the Vampire world. Travelling abroad with Danny, all thoughts of the Paranormal Investigates Division was at the back of her mind. But when a Skin Changer is threatening her agents then she knew that she was back in action.
Angelica was as bad ass as usual, the time away from the PID, had not soften her at all. As soon as she knew that her agents were in trouble she was quick enough to jump into action. Clad in her trade mark leather clad outfit, she was not afraid to get her hands dirty. Her relationship with Danny is as strong as ever and they soon slipped into their old ways when they began to investigate the Skin Changer. Even when their relationship was cracking you knew they were still dedicated to the case. Needing extra help enabled the author to introduce a new character and allowed us to learn more about Danny.
Whilst Angelica and Danny were full vampire, I enjoyed that the author didn’t lose their human emotions. This helped show how dangerous the mission was and as the Skin Changer was a savage creature, its kills were vicious. Reading this story , you can tell that the author loved Harry Potter as there were lots of one lines relating to this franchise, one in particular was Hermes was described as pulling a Severus Snape on Angelica.
Although this is the 6th in the series, this can be read as a standalone story and whilst I have read others in this series I have not read them all. I felt that I did not miss out as past scenes relevant to the story were explained in detail. The fight scenes were intense and at time you think that all is lost. Every character is described in detail and even the minor characters play a part in telling this story. I am pleased that there will be more in the series as it did end on a cliffhanger. Whilst reading this story I could imagine it as a TV series and this series would appeal to Fantasy and Buffy lovers.
Roll on number 7 and I am off to catch up on this series

Detective Daniel Mancini has to go into early retirement due a stake out that goes horribly wrong. He is tracking a serial killer who turns out to be a vampire the trouble is nobody believes him and thinks he is crazy due to his injuries.

Two years later he gets a knock on the door and a beautiful agent Angelica Cross invites him to join a secret part of the FBI who investigates paranormal activity. She wants him to help her catch the vampire serial killer and as he knows the case he is the best man for the job. Whilst he gets trained in how to fight all things paranormal a close friend gets killed by the vampire causing Daniel to have an unhealthy hatred of all things vampires. Both Angelica and Daniel has their secrets but can they work together to solve the crime.

I really enjoyed this book and thought it was a great start to the series. I liked how the relationship between Angelica and Daniel was going and the prejudices they both faced. I love the idea of a human working with a paranormal and can’t wait to see how the series progresses. Angelica is one feisty lady and you can tell that she does not taking any nonsense. Daniel is your typical cop, always questioning everything and wants to get to the bottom of the mystery.

I am interested in finding out where their relationship will go but I don’t have to wait long as book 2 is already out
