Shadow's Edge, The Kyn Kronicles, Book 1

Author: Jami Gray
Year: 2011
Publisher: Black Opal Books
Pages: 323

Raine McCord is a Kyn a/k/a a supernatural being. She's part fey and part unknown (she doesn't know her father). She works as a Wraith for a supernatural security firm - which basically means she's a clean up person for when things go wrong. She does a lot of a killing. As a child, Raine was kidnapped by a bunch of scientists and experimented on. The results of the experiments being that she has (1) some major trust issues and (2) unknown abilities due to the enhancements to her powers made by the scientists. 

Raine gets called in on a special job and is assigned to work with Gavin Durand - a super hot and sexy Wraith - to track down some possible killers. At first glance, these murders appear to be connected to her own kidnapping years earlier. Of course, during the course of the investigation, Raine and Gavin have to deal with their attraction to each other.  :)

I was a little unsure about this book, but truth be told, I ended up loving it. It was fast paced, amazing fight scenes, good myth building. Gray answered just enough questions to satisfy you but left lots of threads unraveled to keep the reader coming back. I definitely wanted more resolution in one particular spot! I think this series has a lot of potential in the paranormal romance department.
