by Katherine Kerr
DAW, $7.99, 328pp
Release Date: February 1, 2011

The start of a new series for Katherine Kerr.

Nola O’Grady comes from a family with various powers. She is in San Francisco working for an ultra-top secret government agency that works to keep the balance between Chaos and Order. When a serial killer who is apparently killing werewolves shows up in San Francisco , a handsome Interpol agent from Israel , Ariel Nathan, is assigned to work with Nola. Complicating matters are such things as Nola’s unusual family, including a younger brother, Michael, who is trying to become a werewolf like his older brother Patrick was, the subsequent disappearance of Michael, an assassin trying repeatedly to kill Nola and a growing romantic attraction between Nola and Ari.

The action is fast paced, Ari’s disbelief in the supernatural provides a smooth way to explain what Nola does and how she does it, the characters are well-defined and interesting and the story comes to a satisfying conclusion while leaving room for much more in the series I hope is to come. Highly recommended. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
