Onyx can smell evil. No one; not even werewolves, wendigos, or vampires, can hide from her once they’ve committed a crime. When Onyx’s paranormal investigation of a local haunting triggers the death of a divorced mother, she is cut short by the provocative Detective Elliot Stevens. Now she must either tempt Elliot astray from his clean-cut, straight-edged path or change her apathetic ways and learn the truth about who and what she is — before what she doesn’t know can kill her.
Onyx is confused, she is sure that she did her job correctly, yet the customer is still dead. Detective Stevens is humoring her like you would a small child. She decides that a night out with her friends will help relax her and then she can move on. Then a gorgeous man walks up and all Onyx can do is gag, he smells like garbage, yet no one else smells it. It dawns on her it’s a real vampires. Rome is a vampire who follows the laws set down by his for father’s. This kind of thing is happening more and more to Onyx, in the last week she has met a werewolf, and a wendigo
Detective Stevens is a normal person who cares about his city and doing his job. When he runs in to Onyx he is drawn to her even if she is a little out there. Yet when a new case develops with odd markings outside the goth club Onyx and her friends go to, he becomes Elliot and asks for help.
I really enjoyed Onyx, she is smart and strong, yet still human. She is very protective of her friends and dedicated to helping wherever she can. With a quirky personality, and dedication to what she sees as her duty she keeps on pushing forward.
A wonderful read that I would recommend to anyone who loves a well written story that moves quickly and is easy to follow.
