Recommended for readers 17+ due to sexual situations and language.

Book blurb: Just typical. No love life to speak of for months, then all at once, every horny creature in the Otherworld wants to get in your pants. . .
Eugenie Markham is a powerful shaman who does a brisk trade banishing spirits and fey who cross into the mortal world. Mercenary, yes, but a girl's got to eat. Her most recent case, however, is enough to ruin her appetite. Hired to find a teenager who has been taken to the Otherworld, Eugenie comes face to face with a startling prophecy--one that uncovers dark secrets about her past and claims that Eugenie's first-born will threaten the future of the world as she knows it.

Now Eugenie is a hot target for every ambitious demon and Otherworldy ne'er-do-well, and the ones who don't want to knock her up want her dead. Eugenie handles a Glock as smoothly as she wields a wand, but she needs some formidable allies for a job like this. She finds them in Dorian, a seductive fairy king with a taste for bondage, and Kiyo, a gorgeous shape-shifter who redefines animal attraction. But with enemies growing bolder and time running out, Eugenie realizes that the greatest danger is yet to come, and it lies in the dark powers that are stirring to life within her. . .

**REVIEW**: I am a HUGE Richelle Mead fan!  I love her YA books and happened across this little treasure at Barnes and Noble so I decided to give it a shot.  I was not disappointed!  What more could you ask for?  The heroine is a kickass female with just the perfect amount of wit and vulnerability to make her appealing to the reader.  I love Richelle's eloquent writing styling and word building.  She makes you feel like you're actually in the book and experiencing everything that Eugenie is.
Dorian and Kiyo, the two main love interests, have their own set of personality traits that draw you into the book. Dorian is sexy, sultry and mysterious.  There is a darkness about him that tempts even the most virtuous.  Kiyo is dependable and caring, combine that with his animal magnetism and you've got the best love triangle ever.  Who will win her affection?  I know who my personal preference is, but I won't give any spoilers.
This book has an intriguing storyline that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
