Shiarra “Shia” Waynest has not always lived the most exciting life, but now it seems as if every step she takes is full of danger and intrigue.
Alec Royce is a powerful vampire and is well known throughout the community for his good looks and riches.
Alec is determined to have Shiarra as his own, but Shia’s werewolf boyfriend, Chaz, might not appreciate the desire he has for the sexy private investigator. Then there is Max Carlyle, another vampire who wants Shia as well, but for a totally different reason. As if that is not enough to keep Shia guessing as to what will happen next in her busy life, a group of hunters who feel it is their right and duty to destroy all things paranormal want her to join their team. Can Shia juggle her love life, her work life, and some deadly adversaries without stepping on too many paranormal toes?
Taken by the Others is an interesting read. There is so much going on within the novel that sometimes I felt slightly overwhelmed. I do like how Ms. Haines has the paranormal world out in the open, allowing for more interesting plotlines. The tension between Alec, Shia, and Chaz adds to the scenery, giving the characters more hurdles to jump over and adding depth to this novel. It will be interesting to see where the series is headed from here.
