Nightshifted - Cassie Alexander


"He turned toward me and stared at me for half a second. This was my last chance to change my mind, to make him leave, I knew it.


But I never back down. If I ever gave fear a fighting chance, my life would be all but over. I smiled defiantly and he caught my head between his hands and pulled me close."


Going good so far. Edie is interesting. She works as a nurse in a hospital for paranormal creatures. She has a fucked up brother.


Right now she is blowing off some steam with a one night stand after going dancing. You go girl!


40%: "I’d met a ton of older male doctors. The years of being right on most things, compounded by an interest in hearing their own voice be loudest, were like layers of nacre over a center of shit. They might look like pearls on the outside to people who’d never have to call them at three A.M. begging for an important test—but when you were a nurse you began to feel like most of them were swine."


I'm so happy that this book is interesting and well written. A big thank you to Cassie Alexander. Now, let's hope this continues!


55%:  "Page after page of legalese. So this was what lawyer vampires did while they were up at night. It was tough going, but I had faith in myself. I’d translated badly written doctor’s notes involving medication names that sounded like porn stars involved in Nigerian e-mail scams. I could manage this."


I'm really enjoying the paranormal society in this book. They do hide from general humanity but there is a legal system and even insurance companies. Creatures are not completely invincible; they need healthcare and lawyers. It's refreshing to find something new.



100%: "I flipped off the ceiling, and stepped out onto my floor."

Finally, an urban fantasy book I enjoyed completely. It's been a while.
