Book 10

10. Title: Three Days to Dead
Author: Kelly Meding
Genre: Urban Fanasty
Pages: 405

Summary: "When Evangeline Stone wakes up naked and bruised on a cold slab in the morgue -- in a stranger's body, with no memory of who she is and how she got there -- her troubles are only just beginning. Before that night she and two other members of her Triad were star bounty hunters, mercilessly cleansing the city of the murderous creatures living in the shadows, from vampire to shape-shifters to trolls. Then something terrible happened that not only cost all three of them their lives but also convinced that the city's other Hunters that Evy was a traitor -- and she can't even remember what it was. Now she's a fugitive, piecing together her memory, trying to deal with some serious justice -- and discovering that she has only three days to solve her own murder before the reincarnation spell wears off. Because in three days Evy will die again -- but this time there's no second chance . . ." ~Jacket copy

Thoughts: So far, this is one of the best books I have read so far. It is an urban fantasy without all stereotypes of urban fantasy (Thanks, Hamilton!). The story is engaging, the characters real, and a wonderful plot. I could hardly put this one down! Meding has created a spiffy alter reality with creatures like gargoyles, bridge trolls, etc. She was able to build their own factions that added a depth to the story. My only problem is the ending felt a little too rushed. The final confrontation felt as though it was too easily tied up. *shrug* I enjoyed it!
