Review: Precinct 13 (Precinct 13 #1) by Tate Hallaway

4 stars for Precinct 13 (Precinct 13 book 1) by Tate Hallaway.

I come across this book purely by chance. To tell the truth, even though it is written in first person, I am kind of hesitant to read it in the first place, because the protagonist is a recent college graduate. More often than not, a fresh graduate points to a genre of new adult at best and young adult at worst. Both of which does not appeal to me of late.

Well, I am glad to have read the book after all for it is neither of the genres mentioned above. The urban setting is great, the fantasy refreshing and there is the element of surprise when the reader least expects it.

I am certainly looking forward to the next book in this series.

The dead have tales to tell. Sometimes they just won't shut up.

Recent college grad Alex Conner is thrilled to have landed a job as the Hughes County coroner/medical examiner in Pierre, South Dakota. But when her first day on the job ends with a missing corpse, Alex starts to wonder if she would have been better off collecting unemployment...

When the cops made some cryptic comments about being careful with the body they brought in, Alex just thought the boys in blue were messing with her. That is, until something freaky happens that no amount of med school could have prepared her for. By the time Alex gets herself together, the body has disappeared and the other residents of the morgue start talking her ear off.

After working up the courage to report the missing body, Alex is transferred to the mysterious Precinct 13 where she discovers that her new co-workers—including a cute technomage named Jack—are paranormals just like her. Now, Alex is being encouraged to use her ability to speak to the dead to solve crimes. And despite being in the middle of nowhere, Hughes County sure does have a lot of paranormal activity…
