"Haines's mediocre debut rounds up the usual urban fantasy suspects and locks them into a plodding PI story. Shiarra Waynest runs a detective agency in an alternate New York where werewolves, vampires, and magi 'came out' in the aftermath of 9/11. She and her wealthy, clever partner in crime solving, Sara, usually steer clear of 'Others,' but financial troubles have forced them to take on a case for a mage who wants an artifact currently held by sexy, ancient vampire businessman Alec Royce. With two other good-looking men cute, geeky mage Arnold and Shiarra's werewolf ex-boyfriend, Chaz along for the ride, things keep looking like they should heat up, but Shiarra's nonexistent detecting skills and general preference for flailing panic over careful thought keep the plot from ever catching fire or even giving off sparks."

The first in a new urban fantasy series. They are the Others--the vampires, mages, and werewolves once thought to exist only in the imagination. Now they're stepping out of the shadows, and nothing in the world will ever be the same again. Original.
