Forsaken by the Others (H&W Investigations #5) by Jess Haines

The Others–vampires, werewolves, things that go chomp in the night–don’t just live in nightmares anymore. They’ve joined with he mortal world. And for private investigator Shiarra Waynest, that means mayhem…

Have a one night stand with a vampire, and you can end up paying for it for eternity. P.I. Shiarra Waynest, an expert on the Others, knows that better than most. Yet here she is, waking up beside charismatic vamp Alec Royce with an aching head…and neck. Luckily, Shia has the perfect excuse for getting out of town–namely, a couple of irate East Coast werewolf packs who’d like to turn her into a chew toy.

On Royce’s suggestion, Shia temporarily relocates to Los Angeles. But something is rotten–literally–in the state of California, where local vampires are being attacked by zombies. Who could be powerful enough to control them–and reckless enough to target the immortal? Following the trail will lead Shia to a terrifying truth, and to an ancient enemy with a personal grudge…

When I read the first three chapters I started to like the main character “Shiarra Waynest.” I thought she was tough; yet sweet at the same time. I finished reading this book in about three days and I was rather surprised that I had gotten done that quickly. I didn’t think I would like this type of story very much; but I found that despite some things about the book the character and the plot of the story were rather interesting and nice to read.

 I saw that  this story was supposed to be considered a fantasy type of story, but I feel that this story could also be filed under supernatural romance as well. I think Ms. Haines has a considerable amount of talent as a writer; I think if the author at least took out the romance aspect of the story that it would be an even better story. The one thing I did have a little trouble with is that this book is a part of a series of books and I was a little lost for a little bit, but it didn’t take me long to figure out what I was missing. I think anyone who loves fantasy books or romance books would really enjoy reading this book; those who love this author/series would really like this story as well. I give this author an “A-“and the book a “B.”

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
