Publisher Comments:

"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" meets "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" in this wild, action-packed, debut series from Jennifer Rardin about CIA operative Jaz Parks and her boss, Vayl--a vampire assassin.

Review:

"Rardin fuses spy girl with vampire slayer in this entertaining but derivative debut. Jasmine 'Jaz' Parks, a martial artist turned vampire-hunting government agent, is assigned to protect top-notch operative Vayl, a 300-year-old vampire on the side of the good guys. As Vayl helps Jaz to hone her supernatural abilities and she tries to keep from falling for his Romanian charm, they track down a dirty senator in cahoots with Mohammed Khad Abn-Assan, a terrorist who's making plans for a 'Red Plague' spread through vampire-to-human contact. Rardin delivers all the paranormal touches that fans of Hamilton, Harris and Whedon enjoy, and Jaz's jittery narration amuses, but the fang-filled plot, replete with action licks and paranormal theatrics, will have trouble standing out in this overcrowded field." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

I'm Jaz Parks. My boss is Vayl, born in Romania in 1744. Died there too, at the hand of his vampire wife, Liliana. But that's ancient history. For the moment Vayl works for the C.I.A. doing what he does best--assassination. And I help. You could say I'm an Assistant Assassin. But then I'd have to kick your ass.

Our current assignment seemed easy. Get close to a Miami plastic surgeon named Assan, a charmer with ties to terrorism that run deeper than a buried body. Find out what he's meeting with that can help him and his comrades bring America to her knees. And then close his beady little eyes forever. Why is it that nothing's ever as easy as it seems?

I absolutely loved this book! It's the first one in a new fantasy series that has tons of action and excitement! The narration of the main character, Jaz Parks, is in the first person point of view and is done very well. I would recommend this book to paranormal and fantasy fans who enjoy an exciting story. Great book!
