It was great to see how a medical team would handle the super natural patients vamps, shifters, wolves, etc. Bedside manners, safety protocols and procedures mashed up with a paranormal world were such a treat to read. Alexander took nursing to paranormal levels indeed. I really like Edie, her personality and some life experiences are very realistic.

In fact, some parts of her remind me of some friends, coworkers and even me. She is honest and there are never any pretenses with her. Pretty much, what you see is what you get. I admire her for her patient advocacy to a point where her own life is affected just to help others. Like I said, her patients are not of the normal kind so; you can just imagine what kind of trouble she gets into.

I do have to disagree with her love life or lack of. She is independent and she has no need of any man but she seems to sleep around.

And when she decides to exclusively date, she picks a zombie. Why she picked Ti the zombie over Asher very sexy shifter? I do not get. Overall, this book made it to my auto-follow series simply because it was that good. Did you like this review? Given that it was Alexander's debut novel, I'm willing to overlook a few rough patches here and there and give it a full 5 stars. Ultimately, the test of a book like this is whether or not I want to read the next one. And I do. If the local bookstore was open right now, I'd be doing that instead of writing this review.

Originally reviewed here. The great thing about reading is that books always surprise you no matter how long you've been reading them. You think you know an author or a genre or a style, and then they go and rip the rug right out from under your feet.

Sometimes I'm going along, doing my thing, reading my books, and then I pick one up and realize it's what I've been starving for. I love a good urban fantasy. Ever since Sunshine. Ever since I made the acquaintance of Mercy Thompson. I've loved the Originally reviewed here. I've loved the real deal. And when I fall, I fall loyally.

I look forward to the new Mercy and the new Kate religiously each year. But it's been kind of awhile since I sank into a brand, spankin' new one that really did it for me, you know? In fact, I'm pretty sure it's been a couple of years. There's so much paranormal stuff out there some of it excellent, some of it not so much that I often find myself longing for some true urban fantasy. Something about the girl on the cover and the silhouetted dragon through the hospital doors behind her said good things lie inside.

And wouldn't you know? It was the one I was starving for. Edie Spence is the new nurse on Ythe paranormal ward at County Hospital. The one no one knows about.

Edie wouldn't have a clue either except the mysterious Powers That Be stepped in to save her druggie brother from ODing. But their continued intervention on her brother's behalf comes at a price. Edie's worked in some holes, but this one takes the cake. From her indeterminate gendered supervisor Meaty to the lengths they go to to disguise the true nature of their patients in nightly reports, nothing about nursing school prepared Edie for catering to a steady stream of vampires, weres, shifters, zombies, and the like.

  • Nightshifted (Edie Spence, #1) by Cassie Alexander.

But despite the fact that she's all but washed her hands of him and that he's done everything he can to mess up her life and his own, Edie still loves her brother. She's always flown solo. It's not like her life was all that social to begin with, so what's a few more hours spent with the dead than the living anyway?

But then a random vampire dies on her watch, and newbie Edie finds herself unable to forget him or the words he whispered before crumbling into dust in her hands. Before she knows it, she's tracking down the vampire he mentioned in an attempt to set things right. But what she finds is so wrong it quickly bleeds over into Edie's life and turns it upside down. It's gritty and dark, its heroine jaded and tough, and both of them are studded with moments of humor and human frailty.

Edie is no superwoman, and her very normal skills are not always up to the paranormal requirements placed upon her in order to survive. But she is scrappy. And fiercely independent. And very much not inclined toward self-pity. Which is to say I liked her right away. But I wasn't always sure she would survive her story, as pretty much all the creatures that go bump in the night make appearances at one point or another. And while a few really nasty versions of vampires play a large role in the book, I liked that they weren't the sole focus.

In fact, my favorite character besides Edie turned out to be a zombie that I developed a bit of a crush on. I'm pretty sure that qualifies as a first for me, but I'm thinking I'm not gonna be the only one who feels that way. Because as zombies go, this one is pretty charming. Witness an interaction early on taken from my uncorrected ARC : The next night, I was finally assigned the gentleman in room five.

I got the report and then looked at the chart myself. He was a zombie. That was a bit odd. We'd only had two zombies on the floor while I'd been here--Mr. Smith was the second of them, and I'd never been assigned the first.

But I had a mission tonight, above and beyond mere nursing. I needed to get more blood. I walked into the darkened room, tubes in hand. If I got his blood now, I could toss it in my purse on break. The monitor was still in standby, casting a faint glow over him where he lay on the bed. I knew what smelled different about this room now, it was the scent of warm earth. Mind if I turn on the light? Smith was tall, stretching almost the entire length of the bed, with wide shoulders. The parts I could see of him outside of the sheets and his hospital gown--his arms, his neck, and his face--were all covered by almost-healed smooth rippling scars.

Between the dark color of his skin as it was and the slightly lighter color of his skin as it healed, he looked like a dark pond on a windy day. His eyes were a light golden brown, and the skin around them crinkled when he smiled. As I walked into the room I formed my plan.

I would do the blood draw last, so I could hurry away and hide. I hadn't heard about any IV sites, but I had a butterfly needle for the draw. I didn't really like poking someone unnecessarily, but it wasn't like he could get an infection and die from a needle stick now, was it?
