Charlie is a stong minded, physically strong ITF officer. The problem with Charlie is she died. Then she came back alive and now she is dealing with powers she never knew she had from the beginning, and some that shouldn't be there at all. While the plot focuses on the mystery behind Charlie's "death", and a drug called "ash", it is also about Charlie's insecurities and stubborn will.

The supporting cast in this book is great especially her sister, daughter and partner. You'll also love Rex (think Dark-Hunter "Simi"). If you aren't used to Urban Fantasy you might want to make notes of who's who so you don't get confused because they are all in this book.

I loved the book right from the beginning. It was a fun, fast, heart-racing read. I'm still trying to figure out the connection between this book and Three Days to Dead by Meding. They both came out same day, have similar plots, same type of writing style but different authors? Weird. Oh well, I enjoyed them both!
