An ambitious intern at the FBI’s paranormal unit patrols Baltimore for a vampire in this urban fantasy romance series opener.
This mind-blowing new series introduces Sloan Skye, an ambitious intern at the FBI’s paranormal unit, where the usual rules of crime fighting don't apply . . .
Sloan has a sky-high IQ, a chaotic personal life, and a dream: to work for the FBI. Her goal is within reach until an error lands her with the FBI’s ugly stepchild: the new Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit. She’ll get to profile criminals, but the pool of suspects is a little more…diverse. Yet even as Sloan tackles her first case—a string of victims, all with puncture wounds to the neck—she can’t silence her inner para-skeptic.
To catch the killer she’ll have to think like one. That means casting aside her doubts, and dealing with bizarre nightmares that started with the job. But the strangeness is only beginning, as Sloan pieces together the shocking truth about a case that's more personal than she ever would have guessed.
Chick lit meets police procedural in Dane's series launch, which will disappoint fans of paranormal romance. Dane, better known for erotic romances written as Tawny Taylor, rejects the usual paranormal tropes without establishing any new ones; her entirely human protagonists use entirely human methods to hunt a creature that may, in fact, be human. Sloan Skye, a 20-something genius with self-esteem issues, is interning with the brand-new Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI alongside two gorgeous guys who (of course) vie for her charms as they and other members of the inexplicably all-white cast roam a sound-stage version of Baltimore in search of a vampire. Sloan's schizophrenic mother and mad-scientist roommate offer comic breaks from the romantic and professional maneuvering, resulting in a crowded canvas that never achieves high adrenaline or page-turning tension.
