Makenna aka Mac left her life as a seedy tabloid journalist behind to become North America’s only seer for SPI (a kind of Men in Black for supernatural creatures instead of aliens). A few gruesome murders sets the team off after a Grendel who intends to reveal the existence of supernatural creatures at Times Square’s New Years Eve celebrations.
Audrey Bloom once again finds herself in the midst of a murder. She’s been hired to design bouquets for a bell crazy bride on wedding reality tv show (try saying that three times fast). It ought to be a great opportunity for the store but the hosts are nowhere near as nice as they appear on camera. Audrey isn’t exactly surprised when the most obnoxious one is murdered but decides to intervene when her ex, Brad, becomes a suspect.
Jodi just wants to live quietly and pay of the debt that her dirtbag ex racked up. Unfortunately for her, her next door neighbour is Danny Bradford and the only thing he wants, apart from inhaling large quantities of food, is to drive her crazy. In Bradford-land this means she’s a keeper.
Savannah Cavenaugh is a rare creature indeed. Her ability to morph into a dragon helps with her day job, a thief that specialises in moving big objects. She jumps at the opportunity to steal a priceless artefact and cement her name as one of the best in the business even though it means going up against Lord Relobu, the dragon lord of North America.
Owl, international antiquities thief extraordinaire, lives by one motto – no supernatural jobs, ever. She unfortunately catches the attention of a red dragon called Mr Kurasawa who makes her an offer she can’t refuse. All she has to do is find a rare object that has been missing for 3000 years and in return, she gets to live. Simple, right?
Carol Jenski, the best friend of Myrna (book #1’s heroine), got severely injured in Budapest by a dragon. When she wakes up in hospital, she finds out there has been an attack on DRACIM in Tulsa and she is the prime suspect. Rather than explain her actions to the authorities or even an angry dragon lord, she goes on the run with a dishy reporter.
Russell has finally got Master Han within his grasp when some chick ruins his shot. If that isn’t enough, she then wants to work with him to bring Han down. Fortunately for the tiger-shifter princess of Tiger Town (try saying that fast) Jia, she’s cute and Russell whose been living by himself in a cave for years and years can’t resist her charms.
I either love or loathe Cole’s books and No Rest for the Wicked is firmly in the love category. Kadarin is the cold, bitchy Valkyrie who is incapable of showing emotion. The only thing she lives for is competing (and winning) the Hie. She fully intended to kill Sebastian “I’m a hot vampire with uber smarts” Wroth but ends up blooding him instead. Oops. What follows is a highly entertaining cat and mouse game played out around the world.

You know that ancient Chinese curse “may you live in interesting times”? Well even though it turns out not to be ancient or even Chinese in origin, it actually applies fairly well to the heroine of our piece Jin Soling. She gets drawn into a murky game of politics as she tries to protect her family.
