Genre: Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
Goodreads

The Others–vampires, werewolves, things that go chomp in the night–don’t just live in nightmares anymore. They’ve joined with he mortal world. And for private investigator Shiarra Waynest, that means mayhem…

Have a one night stand with a vampire, and you can end up paying for it for eternity. P.I. Shiarra Waynest, an expert on the Others, knows that better than most. Yet here she is, waking up beside charismatic vamp Alec Royce with an aching head…and neck. Luckily, Shia has the perfect excuse for getting out of town–namely, a couple of irate East Coast werewolf packs who’d like to turn her into a chew toy.

On Royce’s suggestion, Shia temporarily relocates to Los Angeles. But something is rotten–literally–in the state of California, where local vampires are being attacked by zombies. Who could be powerful enough to control them–and reckless enough to target the immortal? Following the trail will lead Shia to a terrifying truth, and to an ancient enemy with a personal grudge…

Shout Out Saturday

Shout Out Saturday is where I post the ratings and quick thoughts of the paperbacks and ebooks I read. Since I have gone to an audiobook blog, I feel these books deserve some attention too!

Read for Review (Netgalley)
Overall Rating: 4.00
Story Rating: 3.75
Character Rating: 4.25

First Thought when Finished: Holy freaking cliffhanger… Grrrrrr

Story Thoughts: The 3.75 comes solely from the fact that there is a cliffhanger at the end of  Forsaken by the Others. We all know that I LOATHE cliffhangers with a fiery passion. However, the rest of Forsaken by the Others was pretty darn good. I missed my geek squad but I liked the characters introduced in Forsaken by the Others. Specifically I need to see more of the tall blonde (though I am going to imagine him as a dark-haired guy). I think he is very intriguing. The change of venue and location also was a nice change of pace. Overall, I really enjoyed it until the last few pages. GRRRRRRR!

Character Thoughts: I love the characters of H&W Investigations. I know everyone is a huge Royce fan but I like it when the ladies (Shai & Sara) are off on their own. They have some serious girl power and they remind me of old-time sleuths. They follow the clues and tend to get in over their head. They are smart, sassy, and friends. I just enjoy them and think they are one of the best women duos written. Thank you Jess for making both of them capable and able to work off each others strengths/weaknesses. Also there were zombies so you know I was happy!

Final Thoughts: I love this series! So while there was a cliffhanger, I was still overall impressed!
