"There was mystery, horror, and fast-paced action. The dialogue was simply brilliant... When someone can actually make my cold heart ache, then I have to applaud them for a job well done." -Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance

"[T]he reader can see the growth in the main character. Fray starts out at Point A and at the end of the book she’s at Point D, and you can see Points B and C along the way. She’s still a kick-ass, no bull-shit character at the end of the book, but she ends up with a different view-point and a new purpose in life."
"There are parts of this book that will make you smirk, and some will make you throw your fist in the air. And there are some that will heat you up, and some that will break you down. You will get angry and scared and you will want to know how such horrible creatures can exist. [Blakely Chorpenning] doesn't hold back at all, and I think the story will definitely speak for itself."
Fray loves being a semi-pro fighter and free spirit. However, when a deadly faction begins abducting supernatural teens in the Blue Hills of North Carolina for excruciating experiments, she quickly learns there is more to life than glitzy opponents and late night trysts. Fray and a crew of unlikely allies must rescue the children before they are dissected alive. Being a leopard shapeshifter helps. Confronting personal prejudice and traversing feelings for a tempestuous ex do not mix. But Fray is willing to go all the way to stop her world from changing. That is, until the ultimate sacrifice forces her to realize just how overdue change is.
Her most shocking discovery: Everyone’s human. At least a little…
