"An exciting and original addition to the urban fantasy genre." Adrian Phoenix, Author of the Maker's Song Series.
IN THIS SEXY FIRST NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING AMERICAN GEOLOGICAL SURVEY SERIES, PROBLEM-CHILD AGENT VALLON DRAKE'S INVESTIGATION INTO HER PARTNER'S STRANGE MURDER PULLS HER INTO A RACE TO SAVE SEATTLE FROM DESTRUCTION.
The American Geological Survey, a secret arm of Homeland Security, protects America from foreign terrorists and America's Gifted population—people who can reshape the landscape with their strange power. AGS agents share this same power, but work under Homeland Security's strict control.
Orphaned at a young age, Vallon Drake knows her power keeps her apart from the normal people of Seattle. But she doesn't feel she belongs with the AGS, either. She might be the most powerful agent in the AGS, but her lone-wolf attitude means her bosses don't trust her.
When Vallon finds her latest partner entombed in the wall of a Seattle parking garage that didn't exist a few hours before, she stumbles into a police investigation as chief suspect and into the path of a mysterious stranger who wields Gifted power beyond anything she's ever seen before.
Pursuing her partner's horrifying death reveals a string of murders and mutilations that all point toward a sociopathic suspect responsible for the apocalyptic power building under Seattle—a power that might hold the key to Vallon's past, or that could erase the city right off the map.
If you like Harry Dresden, but with a unique magic stirred into the mix, you'll enjoy the daring adventures of Vallon Drake.

Not what I was expecting
It’s been a long time since it took me a month to read a book. A lot of factors went into taking so long, outside and the fact that it’s a different type of story to what I typically read. That said, once I really got into the book, about halfway I’d say, I had a hard time putting it down and I proceeded to recommend it to my mom without having finished it and I fully intend to read the next book in the series. And I’ll say this, the presence throughout was not who I expected.
