Vampire attacks are on the rise in the city that never sleeps. So why is half-human, half-Drow private eye Nyx tracking down Sprites? Sure, these “young bloods” are causing mischief all over town—like painting the Statue of Liberty’s toenails neon pink. But it’s not until Nyx finds herself at the Pit, Manhattan's hottest nightclub for paranorms, that she understands what she’s really up against…
Seems Master Vampire Volod has a plan—and the Sprites are in on it. By targeting the weaknesses of every paranorm in the city, from Elves to Shifters to Zombies, Volod and his fang gang aim to rule the night once and for all. Over Nyx’s dead body. She loves a good challenge—and she will seduce danger at every turn to throw Volod off course. It’s time for Nyx to enter the beating heart of this dark conspiracy…before driving a stake through it.

Cheyenne McCray quickly became one of my favs with her steamy Magic Series. This is book 3 in her Night Tracker series. (Demons Not Included - 1, Werewolves Not Allowed - 2)
To truly enjoy these books, you've gotta start off with book 1 - Our lead heroine is one kick ass woman - well Half Drow, Half Human. She's fighting as a night tracker to protect the world against the rogue paranorms.
I love Nyx' character and her interaction with her business partner Olivia, her cat, and her man. McCray gives us tons of action in this book, almost non-stop. I'm not complaining, I enjoyed it. Keeping the interest in her series going is what I like best about an author. McCray does it over and over.
McCray gives her book an edge, tweaking the 'normal' view of the Vampire. Not always the ones with the most bite in this book, Vampires are on the bottom rung, overlooked, until one overheard conversation.
Nyx has always had great color in both her personality and her skin at night :). She shows amazing growth in this book. She's got her mind in the right spot, seeing the bigger picture of her actions. Her man, Adam, lays his claim and she's ready and willing and feels the same. At the same time, Nyx has to keep her independence. She's had preconceived views of 2 of the paranorm races that are flipped up and found to be completely unexpected. Her mind racing in every direction, there no time for rest in this action packed installment.
I felt this book has to be pivotal for the series to bridge into the next (Zombies Sold Separately) due out in May 2011. I think we're going to see BIG things to come!
