This was a good start to a new series. Reasonably solid world building, entertaining characters and secondary bods. I really liked the heroine, but the possible hero was a little meh. The pacing got a little slow around the middle and while the premise of this novel was good, it felt like a one off. There was no sense of something bigger or overarching like you get in Ilona Andrews urban fantasy (an all time fav for me). So, a good read and an interesting start to a new series but didn't hit it out of the park for me.
