I chose to read this book just a few days ago after hearing about the unexpected death of the author this past Monday, Sept 20. Jennifer, your fans will sorely miss you! Rest in peace.
The series is urban fantasy with enough simmering, teasing sexual tension to keep us PNR lovers happy. Jaz is a special agent for a paranormal division of the government. Not too long ago a mission went very badly - Jaz died but came back with strange new powers. Now she's working in an even more secret division as a paranormal assassin. Her partner is Vayl, a sexy vampire with plenty of secrets of his own.
In this particular book, Jaz & Vayl are in Greece to infiltrate a vampire clan (called a "Trust") of which Vayl used to be a member. Their mission is thrown into chaos and their lives into danger when they arrive to find that their contact and the leader of the Trust is dead and the new leader has an agenda of her own.
I very much enjoyed this book! I loved that the book's plot revealed a lot of Vayl's history which in turn opened up a lot more of the overarching series plot and therefore also the romantic plot between Jaz & Vayl. I've already got #5 of my TBR shelves and will be sure to read it soon!
BTW, for those wondering, Jennifer did finish this series. Book #7 will be released in November with #8 following in summer 2011.
