My Review I haven't read anything by either of these authors including any of this series, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I live near NOLA, so I am always skeptical with authors who don't live here writing about us natives. LOL but this one was great! Sam is a hilarious character and she's so unique. And she's starting this series off right with some greatness.
Samantha is smart, she's loyal, she's kind, and even if she's a vamper, I loved her. She was human, worked in law enforcement, and then she was turned and now runs her own PI firm. She references her shifter BF but I didn't see him in this one. And I didn't feel like I missed anything from the previous stories with Samantha. The authors did a fantastic job getting me right up to speed without major info dumps. I think I wanna go back and read her other books anyway because I liked her so much. But this one, we get to see her travel back in time to New Orleans, before the war. It's fascinating. All over a missing person's case, she has some trouble in the present with people knowing her, she doesn't know them, until she goes backwards and things start to make sense.
I liked the writing alot. It kept me turning the pages, and I couldn't believe I didn't have one thing to complain about with the NOLA references LOL Yes, I really am very picky. I definitely loved the suspense and mystery that this book is full of. And the crazy vamps around kept me on my toes. I definitely look forward to reading the next book in this series. I gotta know more about Samantha and her family and friends. :) 4.5 PAWS
