Part sun fae, part blood fae, all abomination.
There is only one hybrid fae in existence, and that dishonor goes to Lane Callaghan.
After a life spent dodging slurs, threats, and assassination attempts, Lane gave her past the one finger salute and ditched her former fae home for good. The detective agency she and her sisters run on the edge of Las Vegas continues to limp along, with Lane doing more debt collecting and intimidating than investigating, but anything to pay the bills. Between working for low-lifes to bring down even lower-lifes, eating cheesy poofs by the bucket, and flirting with the criminally attractive bartender where she conducts business, life is good.
That ends when a routine job goes sideways, leaving Lane with a sack full of stolen sun shards—the source of sun fae power. Without the shards, the sun fae face giving up their magic completely, or risk death if they use their power. Considering they would rather see her dead, good riddance, as far as Lane’s concerned—except her father and adopted sister are sun fae. Lane must choose—return home to save the fae bastards that almost killed her, or let them burn.
This was fantastic! This book has so much going for it including great characters, plenty of action, an interesting magic-filled world, and a bit of romance. I was hooked by the story early on and hated to set the book aside. I am so glad that I decided to give this book a try!
Lane is a hybrid, half sun fae and half moon fae. This is not looked upon favorably by others so she left her fae home to start a detective agency near Las Vegas. Along with her sisters, she takes on a variety of jobs to get by. Things get a little crazy when she comes across a bag of stolen sun shards during the course of a job and the stakes end up being higher than she could have ever imagined. She must sacrifice everything to save the home and people that she left behind.
I thought that this book was a whole lot of fun. Lane was a fantastic character and I loved seeing her work through one situation after another. There were a lot of discoveries made during the course of this story and I enjoyed all of the surprises that popped up along the way. The mystery kept me guessing and there was enough action to keep me glued to the pages. I liked Teddy and thought that he was a great match for Lane. They already know each other when the book begins but their relationship definitely makes some progress during this story.
I would not hesitate to recommend this book to others. I thought that this was a very solid start to a promising series that I am excited about. I cannot wait to see what adventure Lane and her sisters will tackle next!
