I read a lot of this subgenre light modern fantasy with a horror twist and usually a female protag This book and series is getting a lot of press and a heavy and fast push to get out putting it in the mainstream and lighter weight end of the spectrum Combined with the garish cover the horrible Meet Jaz Parks in cover copy and the cover uotes clearly intended for non genre readers I expected a guilty pleasure at bestIt s better than that fortunately but not as much better as it could be I m going to give a moderate spoiler to the book and a non spoiler to the series to explainThe setup is a common one for the subgenre simplified for the GrishamClancy crowd who isn t prepared for the supernatural element Our protag Jasmine Jaz Parks works for the CIA as an assassin working in the US against US law and apparently having enough assassination work to keep her super busy all of which reuires disbelief be not only suspended but hanged until dead Vampireswerewolvesmagiciansetc are out in the public in a way never explained and vampire abilities are conveniently idiosyncratic removing the need for consistency or explanationIn the forward Jaz is taken off individual missions and re assigned as the assistant to the CIA s vampire uber assassin Vayle first sign of an author who doesn t respect the genre reader stupid names for the vampires but not for the humans She doesn t know why she is re assignedSo she and Vayle go to Miami hotbed of international terrorism for some mild racism the brown skinned taxi driver is referred to as fresh off el rafto Cubano the non Muslim religious fanatic terrorists are led by people with stereotypical Muslim names etc Once there they discover the expected 1 The cult is going to release a virus that kills 90% of humans and vampires not terrorists at all technically 2 Someone from Vayle s or Jaz past is involved in the cult 3 Their CIA handlers include a mole working for the cult 4 There is a hunky PI investigating the same people and willing to give up his investigation his job and ultimately his home because Jaz is such a great kisser 5 Jaz kissing PI Hunk makes Vayle insanely jealousSo they call in their non CIA for some new ber gadgets and proceed to introduce the term collateral damage to the book Oh and they meet a convenient 1000 year old psychic with a magic stack of marbles that contains all the mystic knowledge they might ever need A passable super light plot that might pull in the airport reading crowd The major problems 1 The VayleJaz relationship is horribly drawn out 100% predictable and boring 2 Jaz reaction to the Something Horrible In Her PastTM is so so and the mystery around it is complicated by unnecessary obfuscation 3 The villainous evil cult is not only overdone it s boring Only the mole in their organization has any personality and he s straight out of X Men 3 4 The action scenes are so so Not horrible but not amazing The good 1 They get new gear from their that they don t wind up needing The experimental gear doesn t always work but the failures aren t plot devices The character her paranoid friend Bergman who seems to have some time now that he s not an extra on the X Files is a fun character who isn t just the guy in the lab They also get new gadgets from the agency not just Bergman 2 the biggee The Horrible Thing In Her Past turns out a really really nice and unexpected element Jaz is a revenant In the event that killed her whole team she didn t actually survive but she was sent back with some souped up powers to fight and kill something The rules are unclear to herSo I enjoyed it enough to make it to the big surprise The big surprise made some of the goofy stuff before reasonable and interesting And I ll give the next a try
