H&W Investigates

Forsaken By the Others by Jess Haines
3 Stars
This 5th installment of H&W Investigations was not bad.  I, however, have not read any other the others in this series and didn’t get the whole back story.  I wish I would have read the previous book in this series, so if you have not you might want to read them before you dive head first into this one like I did.

Who doesn’t love a book that starts off with a hot sex scene?  Well this book started off with one, I am guessing that the previous book ended in a cliff hanger.  It started off hot and then it just fizzled out.  The characters were hard to keep straight, but for fans I guess you would be able to keep up.

This book does an awful job of painting the picture leading up to the events in this book.  I didn’t get what Shiarra was complaining about because it was in her past.  And this transformation she was undergoing, it never said why, what, or how it happened.  This book also didn’t have enough Royce to keep my interest.  Clyde was horrible; I don’t know why Royce sent her there to begin with.

I am giving this book 3 stars because it was not bad, I just didn’t know the whole back story.  I was actually written well and held my attention.


The Others–vampires, werewolves, things that go chomp in the night–don’t just live in nightmares anymore. They’ve joined with he mortal world. And for private investigator Shiarra Waynest, that means mayhem…

Have a one night stand with a vampire, and you can end up paying for it for eternity. P.I. Shiarra Waynest, an expert on the Others, knows that better than most. Yet here she is, waking up beside charismatic vamp Alec Royce with an aching head…and neck. Luckily, Shia has the perfect excuse for getting out of town–namely, a couple of irate East Coast werewolf packs who’d like to turn her into a chew toy.

On Royce’s suggestion, Shia temporarily relocates to Los Angeles. But something is rotten–literally–in the state of California, where local vampires are being attacked by zombies. Who could be powerful enough to control them–and reckless enough to target the immortal? Following the trail will lead Shia to a terrifying truth, and to an ancient enemy with a personal grudge…
