Despite her superhuman strength and enhanced senses, Della Tsang's life as a vampire certainly hasn't been easy. Especially since she was reborn and bound to the mysterious, infuriating, and gorgeous Chase Tallman.
But if there's one thing that's always kept Della going, it's her dream of being an elite paranormal investigator. Her newest case is the opportunity she's been waiting for, but as Della tries to solve the twenty year old murder and clear her father's name. She uncovers secrets about the vampire council. And about Chase.
Feeling betrayed by all the secrets he's kept hidden from her, Della is determined to keep him as far away from her heart as she can. But she'll need his help to solve the case that will lead them into the darkest and ugliest vampire gangs in town and into the scariest reaches of her heart.
I love being in the Shadow Falls world way too much. Especially when it involves sexy Chase and my favorite sassy vamp, Della. The story starts off with Della and Chase; the guy who lied to her. And she wants nothing whatsoever to do with him. No matter how much her heart beats when he's near. Chase isn't having it though, he's determined to prove to Della that he's worth it. Not only does he go back to Shadow Falls but he also snags a job at the FRU. He wants Della back and will stop at nothing to make it happen.
If only it were that easy! Della won't give Chase the time of day, at least that's what she's trying to convince herself. The pair have undeniable chemistry but Della wonders if it's the bond that's making her feel that way or actual feelings. On top of that, Steve has come back, her dad is on trial for the murder of her aunt, and it turns out that it may have been her fathers twin brother, Eddie. So much going on and not enough evidence to clear Della's father.
Going on a chase so to to speak to save the ones she loves and maybe have her life go back to normal...for a vampire. Problems everywhere arise though that make it hard to focus on one thing. Soon, more and more people start becoming involved, like people dying like flies, and it's all because one man. They need to find him in order to save Della's dad from life in prison. Can they make it on time before it's too late?
These books come highly recommended and are more than addicting. The characters have become like extended family; I love them all so much. I'm hoping that we get a series with Miranda. There seems to be a lot of potential with her, Perry, and Shawn. Overall, if you're looking for a fun paranormal series, look no further. It's sweet, sexy, and hard to stop reading. In no time, I'm sure you'll be falling in love as well.
