Leah Wolfe has retired from serious police work in favor of seeking a normal life. Her unique, yet not fully discovered supernatural abilities allow her to speak to the souls of the dead, providing vital information in the search for their killers. Her abilities have also cost her almost everyone she has ever loved including her mother, who abandoned her to fend for herself on the streets, and, most recently, her ex-fiancé Joaquín Wildhorse, Chief Detective of the Native American Reservation Police Department. But when Joaquín’s new lover is found brutally murdered on the reservation, he turns to Leah for help. The hunt for a vicious killer leads Leah to sexy Ian Nightwalker and Leah is unable to walk away from the case that may cost her her most guarded possession of all. Her heart.
I'm not sure where to even begin with this, but just imagine watching an awesome paranormal movie in high-def… that was my experience while reading this book. Every single setting and character was crystal clear to picture without all of the overwhelming, unnecessary details. Danger combined with sexy, mysterious men, will leave you panting all the way to the end.
Leah Wolfe is the perfect model of an independent, strong-willed woman and someone (although fictional) I very much admire. After everything she’s been put through from the abandoning of her mother at an early age, the dumping of her fiancé while he called her an “unholy witch”, to the never-ending stream of supernatural creatures that have come out of seemingly nowhere to either possess or kill her; she conquered all of it with a lot of grace, bravery, and a much needed foul-mouthed attitude. I will admit, and so would Leah, that she is a bit of a control freak, but then again I can relate.
The rest of the cast includes so many types of paranormal creatures, it's amazing Ms. Print was able to find a place for each of them. Although some characters only made brief appearances, they all made lasting impressions and those that survive will live to see another day I’m sure, in the next SINS series installment.
I felt completely pulled into this story and I'm sure that has a lot to do with Ms. Print's writing ability and being able to connect her audience to her characters. I experienced every possible emotion right along with our heroine, which only served to solidify a memorable connection to this book. Fans of Cat from the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost and fans of Anita from the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series by Laurel K. Hamilton, will see bits of both of those heroines in Leah Wolfe and will immediately recognize the telltale signs of a fantastic story.
Regardless of the fact that there isn't really an HEA (happily-ever-after) by the end, it's more like a to-be-continued HEA. I am absolutely thrilled this is series since that means I don't have to give up any of my favorite characters just yet. There's no way I'm not reading the next book! And remember, whatever you do... stay close to the nightwalker. You'll know what I mean when you read the book.
Recommended reading for not just fans of paranormal romance, but fans of fictional reading period.
