The dead I owe is a very nice introduction to what I hope to be an upcoming series because I really liked the characters and would like to read more about them as they grow. This is a new author and her first book that left me with a good impression of her and her work. As always I have to be honest at first I had a hard time getting into the book because with only one person’s POV you get a lot of just read about Olivia and her life in the first half of the book, but once the author brought in more paranormal activity, action and the romance it ended up being a really good book and I look forward to reading more by this author. Some of you might really like this because you do get to know the main character in depth. Than some of you might find the first half boring like I did, if you do just try to keep going because it does get really good once the demons come into play and the heroine finds out she has talents that the other vampires don’t. For the price of this book it’s really worth the read and I would even venture to say this would fit nicely into an urban fantasy reader who likes some romance added into the mix.
