Twenty-seven agents have been murdered by the supernatural.
Riley soon finds they want to make her number twenty-eight.
After the death of her partner in an assignment gone wrong, Riley Walker is reassigned to work for a top-secret government agency she never knew existed: The Unnaturals. There, she learns of the secret fight against creatures out of her wildest nightmares. Vampires. Demons. Werewolves. And worse. And it's up to the agents in The Unnaturals to prevent these creatures from destroying humanity.
Tasked with investigating the murdered agents, Riley quickly runs afoul of vampires intent on adding her to the tally. And as she races the clock to track down a weapon capable of killing the strongest breed of vampire, she uncovers a web of lies and secrets from the unlikeliest of sources and hints of something much bigger going on underneath the surface.
Supernatural meets Mission: Impossible in this new series for fans of Jennifer Estep, Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, Lilith Saintcrow, SM Reine, and Shannon Mayer!
Not badly written, just bad
The characters are almost impossible to relate to. The lead female character is a petulant brat, and I’m supposed to believe she’s the most successful agent in her agency? The lead male character is too one-dimensional to really get attached to. Lots of tick-the-boxes inclusive characters, with no development to make them anything more than set dressing. Even the vampires are only superficially scary, especially since they seem to struggle so hard to kill anyone. All of that said, the story does flow smoothly with good plot pacing. The editing is flawless, with no egregious grammar errors, misspellings, or misused words, so thankfully those distractions are absent.
But that’s not enough to save it. The first book was free, but I won’t be reading any more of this series.
