Publisher's Summary

When it comes to talented new recruits at the Federal Underworld Agency, Nora Jacobs is only half the story....

As a fox-shifter, Shayne Davies gets no respect in an underworld run by the fearsome and powerful - werewolves and vampires, sorcerers, demons, and mythical faerie creatures. Even at home, Shayne is still treated like the brat of the pack. Her mom constantly nags, her intended (but unwanted) mate ensures plenty of awkward silences, and Shayne is even expected to act submissive to the pack's future alpha...a six-year-old.

Yeah. Time for Plan B.

All Shayne wants is to prove that she's got what it takes to run with the big dogs, which is why she is constantly hounding Nick Gorgeous to make her an agent at the "Double D", the Detroit Division of the FUA. That's an easy "No" for Gorgeous, who keeps a strict "No Shayne Davies" policy. Well, never say never. 

When mysterious underworld criminals steal a load of bomb materials, the FUA picks up a messy case nobody wants to touch. It's bad enough that a demon horde is involved, but now the annoying FBI has sent out an agent to babysit the investigation. To make matters worse, the notoriously uncooperative master vampire Henry Stadther has control over what may be the only key to breaking the case: a handsome human detective. The whole thing's a hopeless disaster. So guess what, Shayne? You're hired!

Contains mature themes.

Took a while to finish

Story was hard to get into at the beginning and then suddenly everything was happening at once and there was fights left right and center!! I didn't like the narrator. I'm not 100% sure why - her voice was almost monotone. I don't hold this book up to the high standards of the Nora jacobs series. Took me a while to finish

Surprised me

I enjoy the Nora Jacob series so it was easy for me to give Shayne a try. I hated her at first, but she grew on me & I'll definitely keep with this series. It is nice to see a different perspective of this Detroit universe, & while there are familiar characters, this is mostly new people & a new story with a few tie ins. I definitely recommend, just get past chapter 5.

Meh....

Alright so baring in mind that I listened too the original books this book was just meh. The story at times was bland and jumped a little at the end. As for the character of Shayne she was irritating and a lot of the time she frustrated the day lights out of me, then again I believe that was the point of her. The other two mains I kinda liked the detective, he being my favorite character in the whole book, he was a dork and I am very intrigued by his story. One other thing I like about this book was the character dynamics they were nice if not difficult too see how they work at times. Over all this book was just ok and I might give it another listen on a long road trip if I ran out off other things to listen too.
