From Barnes & Noble:
Gwen Sparks holds a rare power. She can see into the memories of the dead. When she learns that vampires are killing witches for the power in their blood and selling it as the new hot drug, brew, she'll have to team up with her ex-boyfriend, detective Micah Reynolds to catch the murderer. As if working with her ex wasn't bad enough, Gwen's also being pulled into the realm of death by an unsettled ghost and has to deal with a sexy but frustrating vampire who wants nothing more than to claim her as his. Can Gwen protect her heart, and her veins from the very species that craves her?
Good story plot and strong character development. The plot was good and I really drawn into the story (finished it in 2 days) from the beginning. I thought the story was good all the way through (up until the end of the book) and I enjoyed the story relationship between Gwen and Adien. But I also thought Gwen was a bit hard headed and was too emotional through some parts of the book. There were also some inconsistencies in the story that I just didn't get. For instance, I just didn't understand how they catch unto Ian and how he was able to get away. I just felt some parts of the story was rushed through & not explained enough.
All & all this one gets 4 Black Orchids.
