Oooo, thanks for the recommendation! I think this series would appeal to those who already reading Kim Harrison's books - I was leery about picking up another series, but this one was worth it.

I really enjoyed this one - the writing is clever and quick, and the plot/characters engaged me right off the bat. True, Jaz Parks is kind of your typical kick butt urban fantasy heroine, but Rardin does a good job of balancing vulnerability along with that. Jaz isn't indestructible, but it's also true that in this series, death isn't exactly permanent. Plot device? We'll see how much it happens in the books to come. But this is a refreshing read all the same, and the tone isn't as dark as some urban fantasy books tend to be.

This is the first book in the Jaz Parks series. Jaz Parks is a sassy girl who really just wants to kick the dust out of some vampires. She works for the F.B.I. trying to take down the ultimate bad guy, which involves a lot of punching and kicking. She works with her partner, Vayl, who happens to be a vampire, which she supposes has its benefits and a few other talented people. While investigating she finds out that she has a special talent too. The second in the series is Another one bites the dust and I can’t wait to read it. Staff picks 2008

Pretty solid urban fantasy with an interesting premise. This supernatural world doesn't arbitrarily see supernatural beings as good or evil. There are shades of grey, and our heroine, Jaz Parks has to navigate her way through this world while overcoming the tragedy of what happened to her and her team.
