From the outset Ayala Storme seems like an average 20 something working a day job in PR complete with a horrible boss just to afford the finer things in life As the story progresses it s uite apparent that Ayala isn t so average after all Born a Mediator she also has a second job working for the Summit to eradicate the demons and Hellkin that wreak havoc in Nashville Being a Mediator isher primary job although the Summit doesn t pay enough for Ayala to afford the things she favor From the outset Ayala Storme seems like an average 20 something working a day job in PR complete with a horrible boss just to afford the finer things in life As the story progresses it s uite apparent that Ayala isn t so average after all Born a Mediator she also has a second job working for the Summit to eradicate the demons and Hellkin that wreak havoc in Nashville Being a Mediator isher primary job although the Summit doesn t pay enough for Ayala to afford the things she favors luxury apartment anything girly expensive wine hence the need for the crappy PR job She also has an annoying Mediator coworker who clearly doesn t understand the word noWhen Hellkin start appearing around Nashville with necklaces made from human hair coinciding with the disappearance of several women Ayala is handed the case to figure out exactly how these circumstances may or may not be connected Through the course of the investigation Ayala learns something horrific the demons are impregnating humans and creating a new breed of half demons Normal demons burn in the sun The new breed Not so much Appearing as human these demons are able to walk freely during any hours which makes them all thedangerous Nashville s demonic threat is now an around the clock job Even worse the human looking demons have a taste for human flesh Most of them anyway This book at first was uite tough for me to really get in to on a variety of levels mostly because of Ayala As a narrator she takes some getting used to because she does several things that I as the reader am not that fond of Ayala and Emmie Mears has the tendency to speak directly to the reader which I m never a fan of That particular narrative style is always a bit jarring for me because I don t like being personally addressed when I read Ayala also has a habit of going off on tangents speaking of one thing and getting uite off track before coming back around to make her point I can see where this can be kind of acreative way to avoid info dumping by having Ayala explain things in afun conversational way but it felt at times to be a bit much Like I said before Ayala s voice and style take some getting used to and by book s end I was used to it One thing I wish Emmie Mears would have done differently is give all not just some of her secondary characters a littledimension Having Gryfflet be cabbagey and Gregor blocky were fun yes but I still have zero clue what they look like I love to imagine characters in my head as most readers do and when someone isn t given depth and dimension there s just a bunch of plain albeit cabbagey and blocky people running amok through my imagination While some of the secondaries were uite plain and undeveloped she did manage to do a super job with others Alamea Mason and Ayala as examples Even Alice poor lipstick always on her teeth Alice The demons and the different supernaturals were also uite interesting and I loved how Mears didn t go with the flow she made things and creatures completely her own with this story I also loved the group of Mediators and how they came to be Some of the backstory was a little sad at times with Ayala yearning for a mother she couldn t have and I do hope Mears continues to explore that particular thread in future books It really added a great vulnerable element to an otherwise tough as nails character and I really like the contradiction All in all this turned out to be a solid 4 star read The first half is slow going not much in the way of action but the second half was almost enough to rock my socks off Almost I am very intrigued at what Mears did with this new breed of demon and I am definitely looking forward to see how that plays out in future installments in this series
