Anna Strong is not your typical bounty hunter. Like her name she is strong, unnaturally strong. That is one of many things that set her apart from the rest of the world. Anna is a newly made vampire who is still trying to adjust to her new life.
Now, on top of everything else that has happened to her. Anna's late brother Steve's old girlfriend drops a bombshell on her and her parents. She had Steve's daughter, Trish, who is now a teenager. Trish has runaway again and might be involved in drugs and the murder of her school friend.
Anna knows she must find her niece before it is too late. As Anna digs deeper into Trish's disappearance she finds some disturbing news which involves one of her niece's teachers. This teacher turns out to be a shape-shifter, just one more crazy aspect Anna has to deal with in her new life as a vampire.
Anna is determined to hang on to what is left of her humanity, no matter where her new life takes her. But, will this new life lead her on the right path to save her niece? Will Anna be able to learn to accept, all of what her new life has to offer? Or will she shrink from what she does not understand?
Once again Jeanne C. Stein delivers a jam-packed story that is full of mystery and intrigue, that will keep you glued to the edge of your seat! Just like the first book "The Becoming" in the Anna Strong series, I could not put this book down even for a second. You will find yourself cheering Anna on as she goes after the bad guys. Jeanne C.
