As an avid reader I was pleased to start this book. Tevis and Kat are an interesting pair of characters. I have read a lot of urban fantasy over the years and usually the Elf is portrayed as the light or flighty type. Ms Blair has made Tevis a strong and quiet type, just the perfect foil for Kat. The story flows cleanly from start to finish and reads a lot like a good detective story should. When you finish up this first in the series you are left both satisfied at the ending and wanting to move onto the next tale. Certainly a great buy and well worth reading more than once. This one will stay on my reader for future rereads.
