“How can a monster tell if he’s a monster if he’s never know anything else?”
Roxanne Fosch is running for her life, scared, alone, unable to trust anyone, and unable to fully comprehend what she is. It’s been over a year since Roxanne ran away from the PSS, the Paranormal Scientists Society, an agency that stole her from her mother and ran inhumane experiments on her. It seems they have found her again, along with a handsome stranger who seems like he wants to help. Who can Roxanne trust when every answer has another question and no one seems able to tell her the truth?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I have not read a book based in the supernatural, or preternatural, world in quite awhile. I instantly loved Roxanne as the main character, she is strong, stubborn, and unrelenting in her desire to live as normal of a life as she can. The book follows her struggles trying to get away from the PSS, an organization who believes that they own her and can do whatever they so desire with her. Filled with non-stop action, some romance, supernatural creatures, and a strong woman lead. When I say supernatural creatures, I mean shifters, weres, vampires, fae, and hybrids. Bazzar creates a wonderfully scary and exciting world that is both unique and familiar at the same time.

Any fan of fantasy books would highly enjoy reading this book. It reminds me, a little, of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, the books True Blood was based on. If you are a fan of that genre of novels, you would definitely enjoy reading these. This is the first of a series, so if you are not a fan of series of books, that is something to think about. I, personally, will happily get the next two books in the series because I need to know how Roxanne is faring.
