Evy Stone is a former Dreg Bounty Hunter, believed to have been burned to death in a fire set specifically for her. Her group, the Triads, don’t trust her. But when the triads destroy the monster-filled lab, they missed the creator who wants Evy alive and well and subject to the experiments to complete the ultimate monster.
Meding writes an action packed urban fantasy with well-written characters including some new ones. For example, the Queen of Sprites who guards the gate where the monsters are penned, or are they? The queen has been attacked. Fortunately the bodyguard was slain while Evy changed bodies. But the world is in danger, and the mad scientist obsessed and the book has you enthralled till the last page. This is a writer to watch, and enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
