From debut author Cassie Alexander comes a spectacular new urban fantasy series where working the nightshift can be a real nightmare. Nothing compares to being Nightshifted.
Nursing school prepared Edie Spence for a lot of things. Burn victims? No problem. Severed limbs? Piece of cake. Vampires? No way in hell. But as the newest nurse on Y4, the secret ward hidden in the bowels of County Hospital, Edie has her hands full with every paranormal patient you can imagine-from vamps and were-things to zombies and beyond...
Edie's just trying to learn the ropes so she can get through her latest shift unscathed. But when a vampire servant turns to dust under her watch, all hell breaks loose. Now she's haunted by the man's dying words-Save Anna-and before she knows it, she's on a mission to rescue some poor girl from the undead. Which involves crashing a vampire den, falling for a zombie, and fighting for her soul. Grey's Anatomy was never like this...
"Cassie Alexander's first book about Nurse Edie Spence is dark and energetic. You'll really enjoy it; I'm looking forward to reading the others in the series."-Charlaine Harris, New York Times bestselling author of The Southern Vampire Mysteries
Medical drama and vampire cold wars intersect in this solid urban fantasy debut. Edie Spence takes a job as a nurse on County Hospital s Y4 floor, which caters to paranormal patients. Introduced to a world of vampires, werecreatures, shape-shifters, and zombies, Edie takes it all in stride until she accidentally causes the death of one of her charges. She s determined to carry out his final wishes rescuing a girl named Anna to make amends, which embroils her in a conflict between two vampire Thrones. When the vampires declare her a murderer, it may take more than a vampire lawyer, a zombie boyfriend, and a ghost-possessed CD player to save her. Alexander s zombies are particularly well designed, and the hospital environment adds an intriguing additional dimension. Edie s life is full of hard knocks, and though it s hard to like a heroine who constantly pushes people away, her gradual development into a person who can allow others to care for her is satisfying.
