Nightingale Being Sidhe is hard, but a Sidhe without a heartbeat?

Life is lucrative and easy for Dr. Grace Caldwelldaughter of vampire father and fey motheruntil her exboyfriend, FBI agent Jack Montgomery, blackmails her into helping him solve a prostitute's murder. If only she wasn't as attracted to Jack as ever, she could concentrate on finding the murderer and get back to her regularly scheduled life. And then there's the vampire Constantine, seductive and powerful, a family friend she's supposed to marry...

Not much of a vampire, and clueless about her fey powersif she has anyGrace must journey to the Sidhe and enlist the help of the fey to unravel the riddle of the murder. She and Jack might just get killed, but then, two worlds depend on her success. If she fails, both her worlds and all of humanity will descend into chaos of epic proportions.

The story takes place in alternate realty Los Angeles where vampires, weres, and the fey are openly acknowledged (and granted diplomatic immunity by law enforcement). Grace Caldwell is a oneofakind half vampire/half fey without much idea of what kind of powers she may one day develop. While she craves blood occasionally thanks to the hemoanemia that plagues the vampires, she only feeds infrequently and doesn't experience the daylight drawbacks that fullblooded vamps experience and her sidhe powers are so far extremely limited.

Grace is drawn into a serial murder case by her exboyfriend, Federal Agent Jack Montgomery. The victims have all been prostitutes and Jack calls on Grace as an expert not only because of her preternatural background, but also because she makes her living as a courtesan.

Grace also must deal with Constantine, the Master Vampire of the Western Territories, to whom she has been betrothed without her knowledge.

The murder case takes Grace and Jack into the fairy mounds and the courts of the Sidhe, putting both of their lives in jeopardy.

I felt that it could use some additional world building and overall development. There are some abrupt transitions, for example, Grace is heading off for a date and then the next scene is from Jack's point of view with Grace calling that she's been kidnapped. There is some explanation later on, but the reader is left to fill in some of the details on their own. If you're not a fan of love triangles then you won't enjoy Nightengale. Grace is interested in not just Jack and Constantine, but two of the Sidhe princes (one Unseelie and one Seelie). Granted by the end of the book it's narrowed down a bit and Grace wants to be able to chose who she's with not ordered into it by the Vampire Council, but it's still just a bit much.

All that said, I did enjoy the story. It kept me interested and it was a quick read for me. I wanted to know what was going to happen next and will be happy to read another installment of the Nocturne Series. I had a tough time getting into this book. And by "tough" I mean that it took me a chapter or two. So I guess it wasn't really a tough time. I just had a mental block over a woman who was a Doctor (not a medical doctor, mind you, but still...) being a courtesan. It's one of those things. Although the idea that the Sidhe aren't as bound by human sexual morality was presented and it made sense, I still had to wrap my head around it. No worries, though. I did get past it and it ended up working for both me and the story in a big way.

After that rocky start with Grace, I ended up really liking her. She's a woman torn between two very different worlds who has made the decision to live life on her own terms. She really is the only one who has the ability to help Jack solve the murder quickly because she's one of the few who can straddle the line between both Fey and vampire.

While the main storyline about the murders was tied up, there were plenty of questions left unanswered about what Grace's future holds. Prophecy pulls her in two different directions and she has a whole passel of powers to learn to control. Intriguing and well thought out, this is a world I wouldn't mind dipping into again.

I absolutely loved this book as a first part of a series and thought it was entertaining and well written.

Grace is a courtesan in a nearfuture Los Angeles but she is far from ordinary. As halfvampire/halfsidhe, she has everything going for her including good looks, intelligence and all the men on tap she could want. However, her ex, Jack, who works for the FBI, calls her in to help with an investigation. Someone is murdering women and he needs her help to find out who is responsible.

It's part detective, part romance but every inch paranormal and I devoured this book in three days (quite a feat with my ultra busy schedule). I found myself reading it at every opportune moment as I just had to know what happened.

It is a rarity for a book to pull me in so deeply and I really enjoyed this one, much more than I have enjoyed a book in a long time.

Grace did get on my nerves with the way she treated Constantine but I hope the Ms. Christman knows what she is doing. I really do like them as a potential couple and I hope (against hope) they get together. This is a must read for any paranormal fan sick to death of bad books out there and looking for a great, fun read.
