Bodyguard Celia Graves plies her trade in a world where vampires roam the alleys of Tinseltown and movie stars openly practice witchcraft, where street corner psychics have real powers and cops use memory enhancement spells on witnesses. An ordinary human, Celia relies on street smarts and charmed weapons to protect the rich and famous from mortal and supernatural threats.

She's landed a plum job protecting the prince of a small but politically vital nation while he tours Los Angeles's least savory hot spots. But what should be a routine assignment goes badly wrong: Celia is attacked by a master vampire and knows she is about to die.

To her shock, Celia wakes on a cold metal table in a university lab. Celia Graves has become an Abomination, neither fully mortal nor fully vampire. Her "master" is hunting her, to destroy her or finish what his bite began. She's accused of murder, and the cops aren't sure whether she should be locked up or staked. And then there's the demon she glimpsed during the vampire attack...

Struggling to cope with her new powers and trying not to terrify everyone she meets with a flash of fang, Celia reaches out for help from her once (and future?) lover, a powerful mage; his warrior-priest brother; a handsome werewolf who keeps his lupine nature concealed from the world; an elderly clairvoyant; and one trustworthy cop.

Celia Graves has three days to save the world, her sanity, and her soul.

Review: I picked this book up on a whim and I am so happy I did. I've read a few of Cat Adams' other books and this one just blew me away more than any of the others. Celia's a tough, no-nonsense bodyguard who takes her job very seriously. She gets ambushed on a job and wakes up with a huge hole in her memory and brand new fangs.

She's not fully a vampire, but neither is she human any longer. She's got to get to the bottom of what happened to her and why. There are plenty of twists and turns and don't forget the surprises for both Celia and the reader.

I definitely enjoyed the first book in this new series and eagerly await the next book. Celia is a complex and striking character and you'll love to walk through her adventure with her.
