This mind-blowing new series introduces Sloan Skye, and ambitious intern at the FBI's paranormal unit, where the usual rules of crime fighting don't apply...

Sloan has a sky-high IQ, a chaotic personal life, and a dream: to work for the FBI. Her goal is within reach until an error lands her with the FBI's ugly stepchild: the new Paranormal Behavioral Analysis Unit. She'll get to profile criminals, but the pool of suspects is a little more... diverse. Yet even as Sloan tackles her first case -- a string of victims, all with puncture wounds to the neck -- she can't silence her inner para-skeptic.

To catch the killer she'll have to think like one. That means casting aside her doubts, and dealing with the bizarre nightmares that started with the job. But the strangeness is only beginning, as Sloan pieces together the shocking truth about a case that's more personal than she ever would have guessed.

Mini-Review: I really, really enjoyed this novel. It reminded me of Criminal Minds every now and then. So many times, I had no idea where the story was going, and I loved the mystery. There was so much going on, but the different plot lines never became muddled. I also really enjoyed the majority of the characters. My favorites were definitely Sloan and her roommate. The cover isn't nearly eye-catching enough to do this story justice.

Plot: 4.5 Stars
Pace: 4.5 Stars
Characters: 4.5 Stars
Cover: 3.5 Stars
Overall: 4.5 Stars

Disclosure: I purchased this novel with a giftcard I received as a Christmas gift.
