Beatrice Alexander is no ordinary schoolteacher-- she can move objects with her mind, an embarrassing skill she hasn't yet mastered or embraced. After nearly killing her brother by accident, she joins the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad, the Federal Response to Extra-Sensory and Kindred Supernaturals. This top-secret branch of the FBI combats ghosts, ghouls, and other monsters threatening humanity. With her teammates-- among them a handsome former-detective werewolf and an annoying Don Juan vampire who's dead-set on seducing her-- Beatrice investigates her first case. Disgustingly dismembered bodies have turned up, bearing bite marks of the undead. Someone-- or something-- is raising a horde of hideous, bloodthirsty zombies.

Great! Fans of Sookie Stackhouse or Psychic Eye would like this series.

this was a good beginning to a series. It has made me think more about the vampire,girl, were-wolf love triangle. who wouldn't like to hot people to pick over, especially if they
1 both like you, 2. cant stand each other (extra points if its cause of some past rivalry that has yet to be revealed) and
3. have to work in close proximity with one another and you.

So it just makes me wonder if the vampire/were-wolf archetype is really just two sides of the same coin. Like on the one hand you have the alpha -male take charge leader good guy wolf guy.

then on the other hand you have the drop dead good in bed man who has lived such a life he had to do it twice. and he will risk his life ( which isnt saying much since he is dead and has been for quite sometime) to save you every time. who also is super powerful and rich and just wants little o'l you even though he could have anyone he wants bad boy vampire.

Well the thing that i wonder is both these dudes have their pros and cons, but in the end no matter who pick you still end up with a monster.

like for real is it really that drastic picking a man? this archetype comes from somewhere, even if most of it is the minds of chick lit writers. makes me wonder why so many folks might think this way, other than this is whats popular at the moment.

anywho i like this book for what it is. a fun romp through sexual tension land with a healthy dose of lets kick some monster butt and leave the lives of thousands to a 24 year old who just found out how awesome she is. WHEEEEEEEE!!!
