In a town full of vampires, mages, and werewolves, detective work can be dangerous: “Dark and sexy . . . a paranormal treat” (Lara Adrian, New York Times–bestselling author). Shiarra Waynest’s job was dangerous enough when her client base was strictly mortal. But ailing finances have forced her to accept a lucrative case that could save her firm—if it doesn’t kill her first. Shiarra has signed on to work for a high-level mage to recover an ancient artifact owned by one of New York’s most powerful vampires. As soon as the detective meets the sexy, mesmerizing vampire Alec Royce, she knows her assignment is even more complicated than she thought. With a clandestine anti-Other group trying to recruit her and magi being eliminated, Shiarra needs backup. She enlists her ex-boyfriend—a werewolf whose non-furry form is disarmingly appealing—and a nerdy mage with surprising talents. But it may not be enough. In a city where the undead roam, magic rules, and even the Others aren’t always what they seem, Shiarra has just become the secret weapon in a battle between good and evil—whether she likes it or not. This fast-moving urban fantasy is “a fun, high octane ride with a take charge heroine who will leave you wanting more” (Alexandra Ivy, New York Times–bestselling author). “Take a sarcastic, likable heroine out of her depth with a mysterious, seductive vampire, add lots of scheming bad guys, and you’ve got a delightful romp of a book.” —Angela Knight, New York Times–bestselling author “Full of litigious vampires, sexy shapeshifters and a mage sidekick akin to Bond’s Q, what more could you want?” —Mark Henry, author of Battle of the Network Zombies “Fresh, hilarious, and action-packed. I loved every minute of it.” —Lilith Saintcrow, New York Times–bestselling author of the Dante Valentine series

The heroine is not particularly likeable (in fact, she's a cry-baby wuss, NOT what I've come to expect from uf heroines), and there is a lack of forward action here. The dialogue is clunky and amateurish.

Several of my favourite Urban Fantasy series’ wrapped-up earlier this year which means that I finally have time to add a new one to my reading rotation, and Jess Haines’ H&W INVESTIGATIONS was next in line. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I picked up book 1, because reviews have been fairly mixed, but as far as first impressions go—I liked it! The author’s writing style flowed well, the pacing was excellent, and the story wasn’t weighed down by the dreaded in

I made it 3/4 of the way through this book before finally giving up in disgust. I'm sad it didn't work out because I kind of liked the premise of a protagonist being in over her head among the world of “others” that are supernaturally powerful.
So here's the problem: it seems that the preferred logic in the novel is that the author says it is so. I'll give an example or two, but note that these are just that: examples. The book is rife with these things.

Hunted by the Others is a solid start to Jess Haines’ H&W Investigations series.
Shiarra (Shia) Waynest is a private investigator. She has avoided taking on cases for the Others, mainly because they terrify her. However, bills must be paid and Shia is hired by The Circle to find a small object thought to be in the hands of the local vampire master Alec Royce.
The author’s incorporation of the supernatural world with the human world was well done. In this book, The Others – vampires,

Haines has created a fantastic world where the Others (vampires, mages, and werewolves) have emerged from the dark. When 9-11 happened werewolves offered to help locate the victims stuck in the rubble, from there the rest came out. The rules and regulations put in place are very realistic. My favorite touch is that those who are consorting with the others have to sign wavers. So if their lovers kill them or turn them all the legals are covered. This just puts a smile on my face, after

It isn’t that Hunted by Others is a bad book. It’s just not terribly original. I’ve read so much urban fantasy/paranormal romance in the past few years, that I can’t help but compare this book to more successful, prominent series in the genre. This debut novel was enjoyable for a time, but I found myself losing interest the further I got into the story. I also couldn’t help but notice the glaring similarities between this book and Kim Harrison’s Rachel Morgan series. Three stars is generous cons...more

I found HUNTED BY THE OTHERS one of those light urban fantasy reads and in the beginning it did appeal to me, but after those first few chapters I was greatly let down.
I felt like the main character was so unlikable that I had to put this book down every chapter and pick it up again. Shiarra is a detective that works in the area of the supernatural, but she is oh, so terrified of them. And I am just in the mind of thinking why is this woman the heroine of the story.

Hunted by the Others is a solid urban fantasy. I found myself thinking about the book after reading the first chapter of the book. A world filled with Others that include mages, vampires and werewolves is such an interesting concept. However, one thing that made it kind of confusing for me was the fact that they had to have contracts with one another in order to have a relationship. It adds something special, but it wasn't really my thing.

So I'm giving Ms. Haines the benefit of the doubt. I'm going to believe that she didn't completely rip-off Kim Harrison's A Fistful of Charms.
But it isn't going to be easy.
Differences are:
1. Shia is not a witch.
2. Ex-boyfriend is not a wannabe master thief.
3. Vampires aren't quite as sinister.
Oh, there are tons of dissimilarities, but far more than the basic premise is the same. And I don't think this is one of those retelling-of-popular-folklore situations either. At least I've never heard of

The premise of this story starts out interestingly enough that I wanted to check it out. I was looking for a slow burn romance, you know the type, the ones where the relationship takes like 3 books to come to fruition, and they sorta fight their attraction for each other? Well, after reading the synopsis of this book I totally though this might be the case, and I had found The One. But alas, it was a bit of a let down.

Rather then be seen as a failure in the eyes of her family, she accepts a case from a client who’s willing to pay big. The only problem is that the client is a Mage and the job involves getting close enough to steal from Alex Royce, the most powerful Vampire in N
What took me so long to try this series? OK, I know the answer to that. I've seen mixed reviews.

I found it a fun and entertaining ride.

Hunted by the Others takes place in present day New York City where vampires and werewolves have come out of hiding after 9/11. There are some humans who are very bigoted against them, mainly from a group called the White Hats. Shia is a bit bigoted herself when it comes to the vamps and the werewolves. She’s just broken up with her boyfriend, Chaz, who kept his true werewolf nature from her, but surprised her while they were in bed together one night.

Shiarra Waynest is a Human PI who does NOT want to work anything having to do with the Others. Her business is having money issues so she decides to take a mage up on a seemingly easy case of recovering an artifact that is owned by a local, very powerful (and sexy) vampire Alec Royce. She instantly finds herself in over her head with The White Hats (an anti-other group), the vampires and even the Weres who can be controlled by the artifact

Since Shiarra works as a private detective and owns her own agency, I expected her to be observant and intelligent, but she often comes off as a bit of an idiot; for her first meeting as Royce her proposed cover story [which she refers to as a stroke of genius] is pretending to be a reporter or restaurant guide reviewer, but, luckily for her, her business partner points out that Royce owns multiple restaurants and clubs and has staff who would handle media.

Shiarra Waynest lives in a world where vampires, werewolves and magi came out to the public after 9/11 deciding to use their supernatural strength and financial backing to help the US pull out of the devastation. Since then, through many court battles, the supernaturals have won against discrimination and have the same rights as humans. However, just because there

What exactly does it take to be a heroine in today’s paranormal genre?
Guns? Check. Knives and Swords? Check. Superpowers? Check. But what if our heroine in question doesn’t really have all of these…yet?
The draw to Jess Haines’ new series Hunted by the Others is its very ordinary, mousy heroine. For those with jaded tastes and who adore souped-up urban fantasy and paranormals, Shiarra Waynest could prove to be a bit too vanilla…but I found her and her exploits to be quite refreshing. A

I almost missed these wonderful UF series, and I have no excuse why. So when this book was offered as a freebie on Amazon, of course I went and got it.
People, let me be frank. This is very good stuff. Funny, very easy to read, the characters are extremely likable. Royce and Chaz... yum! Some of the passages made me nostalgic, reminding of early Anita Blake and Rachel Morgan.
Shiarra has this unexplainable fear of vampires, she starts off as neurotic with a healthy dose of self-preservation.

I definitely enjoyed this book. I liked the story building, the pace and the characters. I would have elaborated more on some of the characters like Royce or Chaz. The characters were an eclectic group of characters who you can easily relate to... They were funny, quick-witted, exasperating at times, and just fun to see how they all interact with each other given the current circumstances.

Excuse my language, but, that was just a damn good story! Now, I'm forced to buy Taken By the Others right away so I can see what happens next. I loved the strictly human side of things and all of the politics in the story. Yes, some things were familiar, but, it is hardly a chance that any one story will ever be purely original when there is so much out there. But, the method of telling the story and the development of the characters makes it original and that is just what I found in this book.
