Product Description

Product Description

Book 1 in the SPECTR series.

Next book: Master of Ghouls

Unregistered paranormal Caleb Jansen only wants a normal life. But when a demon murders his brother, Caleb knows he has to avenge Ben's death, no matter what the cost. Unfortunately, his only allies belong to an extremist group who would kill Caleb if they found out about his talent.

Gray is a wandering spirit, summoned to hunt and destroy demons by drinking their blood. This hunt goes horribly wrong, and for the first time in his existence Gray is trapped in a living, human body. Caleb's body...and Caleb is still in it.

Hotshot federal agent John Starkweather thinks he's seen it all. But when he's called to exorcise Caleb, he finds a creature which isn't supposed to exist outside of stories. For Gray is a drakul: a vampire.

Having spent his life avoiding the government as an unregistered 'mal, Caleb can't let himself trust a federal exorcist, no matter how sexy. And he certainly isn't going to give into the heat growing between them and sleep with Starkweather.

Can Starkweather win Caleb's trust and convince him he isn't the enemy? Can Caleb keep Gray under control, as the drakul experiences the temptation of a living body for the first time?

Because if he fails and Gray gives in to bloodlust, Starkweather will have no choice but to kill them both.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay 11 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my second book by the author, the other being Widdershins which I really enjoyed.

With this, I was a little confused at the beginning. It all seemed a little haywire with the added viewpoint of Gray in the first couple of pages, without actually knowing who he was. I found it confusing anyway, up until they merged into Caleb's body. After that I was interested to see what would happen throughout the rest of the story.

I liked John. He seemed like a really great guy.

The hunt for Caleb's brothers murderer was quite fun reading with Gray being able to scent the demon behind it.

One thing that bothered me was the lack of romance until the last chapter and a half. Okay, they both kept getting turned on when they looked at the other but it was all secretive, not wanting the other to know.

Don't think I will be continuing the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great paranormal! 14 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Someone take one --or a few-- of those lame, boring paranormal and/or sci fi/crime TV series off air, and give all the money to Jordan L Hawk to write a screen play, cos i would SO watch this.

Definitely for fans of crime/police/secret agent storylines; paranormal fans, spooks and ghouls!

For me, what draws me in and hooks me is all the little details that burn images in my mind. Witchballs hanging in the window, charms rattling, and the exorcist secret agent, John Starkweather, cutting runes in the air, making blue sparks.

I'd love to see this on TV!

I loved Hawk's novel 'Hainted', and while Spectr #1 is shorter (novella) and very much a different flavour, I enjoyed the story, and the build up to the final scenes alone is worth reading for.

Looking forward to reading Spectr #2!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too short- want more 30 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the way Jordan I Hawk's mind works. So rare nowadays to find a really unique premise without it becoming ridiculous. I love the characters of John and Caleb and love the emerging 'Gray'. However, these books are too short. Just as I start to relax into the world of NHEs the books end. Book 2 Master of Ghouls is even shorter than this one and I'm starting to see a strategy for getting more for the story by feeding it to the reader in episodic books. I hope I am wrong and Book 3? is a decent length.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just when I thought I couldn't love her work more... 25 Feb 2013
By Patti Larsen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
She had me with Hainted. Then offered me Widdershins. And while Whyborne and Griffin are still my faves, Gray, John and Caleb have won me over. I love Hawk's imagination, the characters she creates, the way she builds worlds so ordinary, but with the extraordinary woven through effortlessly. I've said it before and I'll keep saying it. If Jordan Hawk writes a book, I'm buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ditch the blurb - buy the book 16 Oct 2013
By Korrigan - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I discovered this author with Widdershins, read Threshold and Hainted. Really enjoyed everything I read, but I held off from trying this series. The blurb put me off. Vampires, sigh, really? As it happens I'm very glad I tried the sample and I'm now on book 4.

The vampire in this story is Gray - and I love him. It's a lovely take on the vampire myth and really works. I'd happily read a book from Gray's POV. The human characters John and Caleb also work, though for some reason Caleb tends to irritate me a bit, but doubtless that's just me. Each 'episode' of the series is well written, and delivers a fully rounded plot line.

The style of publishing what are essentially novellas is very clever marketing. They give a nice, quick read, and mean that 'episodes' of the series aren't delayed while the author completes a 500 page opus. I'm extremely happy to have well written, shorter reads, rather than wait a year for the next book.

Great series - if the blurb is making you hesitate, download the sample.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's corrupting whom? A wonderfully entertaining series! 9 July 2014

The first few pages, getting used to the author's style, I was uncertain... but I'm glad I stuck with it, because now I'm completely hooked, and I have to read every single one of these books. Excellent characterization, fascinating character-based drama, and intriguing mysteries! This entire series is on my short list of favorites, now.
