Review: Hunted by the Others (H & W Investigations #1) by Jess Haines

2 stars for Hunted by the Others (H & W Investigations book 1) by Jess Haines.

There is basically nothing wrong with this story, what with a plot involving the Others - vampires, werewolves and mages - co-existing with the humans, except that I have read way too many a tale on this genre that this one comes across as watching a B-rated movie - chessy and kiddish. One more thing. It may have helped some if the protagonist on the book cover is more flattering. Go figure.

Shiarra Waynest’s detective work was dangerous enough when her client base was strictly mortal. But ailing finances have forced her to accept a lucrative case that could save her firm—if it doesn’t kill her first. Shiarra has signed on to work for a high-level mage to recover an ancient artifact owned by one of New York’s most powerful vampires.

As soon as Shiarra meets sexy, mesmerizing vamp Alec Royce, she knows her assignment is even more complicated than she thought. With a clandestine anti-Other group trying to recruit her, and magi being eliminated, Shiarra needs back-up and enlists her ex-boyfriend—a werewolf whose non-furry form is disarmingly appealing—and a nerdy mage with surprising talents. But it may not be enough. In a city where the undead roam, magic rules, and even the Others aren’t always what they seem, Shiarra has just become the secret weapon in a battle between good and evil—whether she likes it or not…
