Meena Harper is your typical working woman in NYC. She has a great job as a soap writer, a perky dog that adores her, and a live-in brother that's mooching off her. Her life wouldn't be that unusual, except for the fact that she can predict when people are going to die and she just found out her new boyfriend is really a vampire.Add in a Palantine guardsman that is holding her hostage in order to kill her boyfriend, and her life has suddenly just become that much more complicated.This story had several interesting characters who kept me entertained. It read like a contemp romance mixed with an urban fantasy, which was different, but good. The author included a few comedic moments that had me smiling, and the book itself felt like it read quicker than the 450 pages length that it was. The only thing keeping me from giving it a higher rating were a few filler spots in the book that didn't really need to be there. I felt like the whole soap opera side story was drawn out more than it needed to be.
