    1. This is my first book in this series. I’ve learned to shy away from starting an Urban Fantasy in the middle of the series, but the first book in this series has been on my Wishlist for a while so I couldn’t resist giving this one a try. Unsurprisingly I found myself a little confused in the first couple of chapters. Tess has a lot of people in her group of friends, so I kept confusing the names. I also found myself bewildered by the character relationships. There were a lot of people living [...]


    2. I’m not usually a big fan of the Police Procedural, in Thrillers or in Urban Fantasy, which is why this review should be high praise. One of the reasons I read fantasy is, I know the odds of a Werewolf jumping out at me in the parking garage or a Vampire grabbing me for a snack are slim. I won’t read books about serial killers or rapists because it is too real, and I don’t find anything like that entertaining. In fact, I don’t understand people who do.By the very nature of the job, the c [...]


    3. I missed the book before this but I love the series and this was a great book! I think Jess Batis has such a dynamic way of writing. She blends fantasy with science very well and builds the OSI world seamlessly. There are no other books on the cover listed after this one but I hope that's not true!!


    4. Incredibly sloppy and rushed ending. By far, the weakest of the series. I barely understand what happened at the end and the beginning of the final book is clear as mud.


    5. ***SPOILERS****Okay, I can't wait to read the next book, because at the end of this book Tess quits! I am not sure if her leaving means that Derrick her partner and live in co/parent for Mia and Patrick will leave too. So, the story begins were she's home cleaning the fridge and everyone gets a call from Selena the boss about a possible dead demon in the custody of the local CPD. So, Lucian, Miles, Derrick and Tess go to collect the body and just when the doctor was going to open up the chest of [...]


    6. Part of a series, this book is about Tess Corday, who works the night shift as an Occult Special Investigator in present-day Vancouver. She is den mother for an interesting group of individuals. Mia is a teen-age girl who, in a previous book, was bitten by a vampire, but hasn't "turned" due to daily injections. Patrick is a vampire with the ability to go out in the daytime. Miles and Derrick are gay lovers. In a previous book, Derrick was bitten by a paranormal creature, and fears that he is tur [...]


    7. (3.5 stars) There didn't seem to be as much of a plot in this book. It starts off strong, but then meanders through all sorts of intense issues. It eventually comes full circle, but without a climax to the initial demon conflict. There is almost too much going on as the author is building towards the next book, making this almost a filler book. Like book 3 in the series, the "bad guy" is dispatched almost too conveniently at the end. The reveal about Tess's father at the end is through expositio [...]


    8. 3.5 stars. I have enjoyed all the books in this series (and again, they should be read in order.) This one was really good, up until the end and then it seemed to cut off short. I'm sure the next book will continue the saga, but in previous installments each book had a relatively complete story arc. This one felt incomplete. I also think Tess was a little dismissive of Derrick's fears and issues (okay, siding with the gay character here) But seriously, what he described wasn't something you woul [...]


    9. 3.5 stars. I have enjoyed all the books in this series, and even if I started in the middle (3rd) I would suggest they should be read in order. :)This one was good as the other 3, at least up until the end when it seemed to cut off short. Or rather the end is anti-climatic and open (compared to previous book).There's the usual fight with the teenagers son and daughter (which I admit is both good and bad. Good because it's so bloody realistic, bad because at times I found it annoying.)On the over [...]


    10. Okay, well, this book kind of reminds me of Rachel Caine's Outcast Season series. It's fine and everything, the plot's nice and easy to understand in some way or the other, and there's a good combination of humour and paranormal stuff mixed together to create a big batch of Comfy Cozy Tucked-In-Your-Blanket reading. I liked the way the conversation flowed, but then the bad thing was that the writer just didn't seem to get anywhere, and that what was her name oh, right, Tess, was way too busy and [...]


    11. I read this series before joining , and I really miss it, so I thought I would read Infernal Affairs and Bleeding Out again.I should have started at book #1. I had forgotten how incredibly fascinating and snarky the OSI novels are. Battis created an urban fantasy with an extremely human not-quite-human heroine. Tess's extended family takes different to a whole new level, but the family problems are all too familiar. These bad guys would give anyone nightmares.


    12. Kept feeling like I was missing something, through the entire book. Am glad I finished, was a good continuation of the series. A must read.


    13. I wish I knew when the next book was coming out because the end of this one wasnt even close to an end! Obviously Im hooked though because I read it in a day and am eagerly awaiting the next one.


    14. I enjoyed this book with all of its worldbuilding and advancing on the general plot, but it doesn't really feel like a novel so much as some stuff that goes into one or a series of them.
