Precinct 13

Precinct 13 is a fantastic thrill ride with a paranormal cast of characters that will leave you mesmerized. One of the great things about this book is the character of Alex Conner who finds herself in the middle of an investigation laced with magical elements that she has been taught don’t exist. She grew up believing in trolls, fairies and demons while everyone around her said it was just a figment of her imagination. She now finds that what she has seen is real and she has magical abilities as well. I liked how Alex went from a character that doubted herself in the beginning to becoming a strong individual that was starting to come into her own with her powers. I highly recommend this novel because it is full of mystery, magic and humor that is entertaining until the very last page. I can’t wait to read more about Precinct 13 and I hope Ms. Hallaway turns this into a series.

Alex Conner has found the perfect job as a medical examiner where she can pay off her student loans and leave her troubled past behind. On her first day, the police bring in a body that is covered with strange tattoos and tell Alex not to do an autopsy on the deceased. She decides to proceed with the autopsy since she is the medical examiner and is shocked to see the corpse get up and leave the morgue. Alex decides to report the missing body to authorities and is directed to a Precinct 13 to report the mysterious disappearance. She is surprised to discover that this police department is filled with paranormals and she may have hidden supernatural abilities as well. Alex is determined to find out what has happened to the missing body and this mystery may be more than she bargained for.

Recent college grad Alex Conner is thrilled to have landed a job as the Hughes County coroner/medical examiner in Pierre, South Dakota. But when her first day on the job ends with a missing corpse, Alex starts to wonder if she would have been better off collecting unemployment...

When the cops made some cryptic comments about being careful with the body they brought in, Alex just thought the boys in blue were messing with her. That is, until something freaky happens that no amount of med school could have prepared her for. By the time Alex gets herself together, the body has disappeared and the other residents of the morgue start talking her ear off.

After working up the courage to report the missing body, Alex is transferred to the mysterious Precinct 13 where she discovers that her new co-workers—including a cute technomage named Jack—are paranormals just like her. Now, Alex is being encouraged to use her ability to speak to the dead to solve crimes. And despite being in the middle of nowhere, Hughes County sure does have a lot of paranormal activity…
