Edie Spence, Book 3
Synopsis: Nurse Edie Spence is once again called upon to save a life…and this time, it’s personal. Can her new community of zombies, vampires, and shapeshifters come to her rescue when she needs them most?
When Edie was fired from her paranormal nursing job at County Hospital, her whole world came crashing down. Now she’s is once again shaken to her core. Her mother is deathly ill and there’s only one thing that will save her: vampire blood. But with the paranormal community shunning Edie, where can she obtain it…without losing her own life in the process?
Review: After the end of the second volume, we can only look forward to read this new book. In fact Eddie was « exiled » from the supernatural world and everyone has been forbidden to approach her. You can say that now she can be free and finally live her life? But such a change is not without consequences and it is very difficult for her to get used to a world so common now. She had many friends everywhere and now she is alone, isolated from everyone she could find so far. But there is even more… Her mother tells her that she has a terminal cancer and that nothing can now save her. Poor Edie lose all she cares about and begs the « shadows » for help. They agree at only one condition: to find a person finds they failed to catch. For that, our heroine leaves her job at the hospital and is hired as a nurse in a neighborhood where gang wars are omnipresent.
I admit that I was impressed by her adaptation to a new environment such as this one, which is also as dangerous as the one where she worked. It was fascinating to learn the history of this area and all the subtleties that reside there. I really liked to learn more about everything. Of course we have many questions about the events happening there, as Edie and I admit that there are multiple and many surprises!
I really wondered how our young heroine would able to operate in these conditions and without any protection. Then the language barrier does not help much either. It made me sad to see her through so many problems by herself, to try to save the whole world, to make everyone happy without thinking about what would happen to her. But we can also meet a young boy with whom Edie befriends and I must say it was a nice surprise. He is a ray of sunshine and freshness in the story and I was always looking forward to see what he would teach us.
It was really a very good new story full of great ideas. The plot is perfectly constructed, featuring some new and old characters. I admit that I was pleasantly surprised to see our beloved zombie too. Cassie Alexander always has a perfect control of her story and her world and it was a great pleasure to get into it again. But I now have only one desire and it is to be able to read the next book very quickly and see what will happen to our little Edie. I really recommend this series if you’re an urban fantasy fan and want to discover a completely different environment.
