STALKING THE OTHERS by Jess Haines

Vampires, werewolves, mages–the Others are very real, and wreaking havoc in Shiarra Waynest’s life. But now, she’s returning the favor…

Once, she was one of the good guys–or as close as a New York P.I. can get. Then Shiarra Waynest was drawn into the world of the Others. Every faction has its own loyalties and agenda. And Shia’s recent betrayal by her ex-boyfriend means that she may be on the verge of becoming a rogue werewolf at the next full moon.

Of course, with all the threats against her, Shia’s not sure she’ll live long enough to find out. The enigmatic vampire Royce wants her back in his clutches, as do two powerful werewolf packs, along with the police. Instead of going into hiding, Shia is enlisting the aid of her enchanted hunter’s belt and every dirty P.I. trick she knows. If she’s going down, she’ll take out as many of her enemies as she can–and hope that in the process, she keeps whatever humanity she has left…
 
 
This is the fourth book in the H&W Investigations urban fantasy series. And I have to say that I really like the new cover art. Shia looks kick-ass!

Shiarra's world used to be a lot easier before the Others became a fixture in her life. Now, the NY PI is on the prowl. She's stalking the Sunstrikers wolf pack, desperately trying to get her hands on her cheating ex, Chaz. Which will also lead her to the asshole who scratched her and might now cause her to turn furry during the next full moon.

Alone, without any money, and in need of leads she makes her way towards the White Hats. She hopes these hunters will help in her quest, and by doing this Shia pretty much gets herself deeply involved in every facet of the supernatural world she wishes she'd never become a part of. As her search for Chaz intensifies and she tries not to concentrate on what she might turn into, Shia finds herself wearing the freaky, enchanted hunter’s belt more often because of the power it gives her. And before she knows it, her reality and feelings become warped by it.

I loved how the change was so gradual, how I honestly believed Isaac had her best interests in mind but is slowly manipulating her to do as he pleases. It was so unexpected, when the belt actually reveals its power to control her, I was thrown. But everything started making so much more sense!

This is another awesome, but brutal installment in this excellent urban fantasy series. I really enjoyed it, and was satisfied with the, uh, climax. ;) It's amazing how hard Shia tries to convince herself she doesn't want anything to do with Royce, when it's obvious to everyone else how much she really wants him. LOL.

Can't wait to see what happens next...


PS. This is the first book I read on my Kindle Paperwhite. Love it!
