Keira Kelly is a half-breed descendant of sidhe and other stranger supernatural beings living life in small town Texas. After a relationship breakdown she ran home to lick her wounds and ended up stuck with the job of babysitting her powerless, human throwback cousin Marty. When Marty is murdered Keira is plunged into the investigation into his death. Meanwhile Keira also has to cope with the Change, (when a supernatural comes into their adult powers and it finally becomes clear what sort of supernatural being they will be - werewolf, necromancer, healer, psychic etc...) and Adam Walker, a man from her past turning up unexpectedly.
This story was well written with an engaging main character and set in a version of the real world with an interesting twist. The mystery plot was good with some nice twists and turns but nothing spectacular. I enjoyed this book, but I didn't love it. I liked the characters, I liked the setting, the concept was nicely original but for me something was lacking that I just can't quite put my finger on. All in all though, it's a good solid book that starts this series well. I'll be looking forward to reading more by this author in the future and with any luck I'll be giving the next book five stars.
