I was provided this Advance Reader Copy by the publisher.

Alexander begins this book with the same brisk action and unique perspective that made the first book, Nightshifted, so enjoyable. Alexander is a real-life nurse, and brings that realism to her urban fantasy featuring a nurse working on Y4, the top-secret paranormal creature wing of the hospital. There are a gazillion urban fantasies out there right now, and for me that touch of medical realism is what sets this series apart and makes it an engrossing (and sometimes gross!) read.

The plot and pace are well-woven here. Edie must balance paranormal shenanigans at work, paranormal shenanigans outside of work, and the urge to save the junkie brother. The only thing I find irksome is Edie's habit of one-night stands. She had to have some kind of personality flaw, I know, but it makes me feel like staging an intervention for her.

Also, this book deserves an award for 'most creative use of an MRI machine.'

I read a lot of urban fantasies. I've tried to follow a number of series, only to drop them by the wayside. This series--free copies or not--is one I will continue reading. It pleases the fantasy-lover and layman-medical-geek in me alike.
