It continues the story of Alex Wolf and Jason Chen, begun in Feral Dust Bunnies and while it took me time to warm to them both in book 4, in this story they hit the ground running. Jason decides it's time Alex met his family and once in the heart of the Chen pack, Alex immediately understands why the invitation didn't happen sooner.
My heart went out to poor Alex during those scenes where he's desperately trying to make sense of the hostile humans around him. And when the family's doubts about Alex begin to affect Jason's reasoning, I just want to rattle him and shout some sense into him.
Jason's feelings of inadequacy are not helped any when a handsome and cocky vampire detective from State Paranormal is foisted on the 77th as a result of the fiasco that concluded Feral Dust Bunnies. Captain Richard Valbuena manages to upset just about everyone within moments of his arrival.
Counselled by his mother not to judge the new arrival too harshly, Alex winds up being the officer Valbuena leans on most as the hoax-animal strikes intensify. None of which helps Jason's insecurities.
I loved how these three characters played off one another during the development of the story, with Alex caught between his growing understanding of the haughty Captain Valbuena and his anxious boyfriend Jason.
I also loved a new character, the vivid, quirky little enchantress, Pecca Teecosi (fabulous name, by the way!) and her sometimes-invisible house.
I won't give away any more of the mystery by explaining her involvement but Angel's deft handling of her character makes her, by turns, both scary and endearing.
I love the way Angel Martinez gets inside the heads of her characters so completely. Little touches like the way Alex can smell changes of emotion, remind you, without constantly hammering the fact home, that he's really a wolf. The way the vampires and werewolves react toward him at the State Paranormal hearing is almost heartbreaking. But it is his inner strength that is at the core of this book.
I loved it from start to finish.
This series will appeal to anyone who likes a well-constructed paranormal mystery with hot men and just the right amount of sizzling passion.
Miscommunication while trying to deal with hoax animals makes for an interesting read, adore any books Angel writes she always keeps the pace and tension throughout. Can't wait for book 6
