A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne's Directorate of Other Races: an organization created to police the supernatural races and protect humans from their depredations.

While Rhoan is an exulted Guardian, aka assassin, Riley is merely an office worker until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn't be worse. More werewolf than vampire, Riley is vulnerable to the moon heat, the week-long period before the full moon when her need to mate becomes all consuming.

Luckily, Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her every need. But she will have to control her urges if she's going to find her brother.

Easier said than done as the city pulses with frenzied desire, and Riley is confronted with a very powerful and delectably naked vamp who raises her temperature like never before.
In matters carnal, Riley has found her match. But in matters criminal, she must follow her instincts not only to find her brother, but to stop an unholy harvest. For someone is doing some shifty cloning in an attempt to produce the ultimate warrior by tapping into the genome of non-humans like Rhoan.

Now Riley knows just how dangerous the world is for her kind and just how much it needs her.

Well, after that awesome blurb, I don't think I need to say anymore about the actual plot of this novel. It was an excellent urban fantasy. I'd been wanting to read this book for a while, but something always kept coming up, or I'd just put it behind other books on my bookshelf and kept forgetting it was there. Now there's no way I'll forget about the next four Riley books I already have waiting for me.

Everything about this tale clicked with me. Riley's a very likeable character and I loved her attitude. And Quinn, I sure hope we get to read more about this vampire later on. I really liked him.

Anyway, I liked everything about it - the plot, characters, pace, action... everything. And boy, was it hot or what? I'm definitely interested in other Keri Arthur books, that's for sure. :)
