Chasing the Shadows (Nikki & Michael #3)

Chasing the Shadows (Nikki & Michael, #3)Chasing the Shadows by Keri Arthur
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What is not to love about Niki and Michael. They are about as functional as any other couple out there in the world. Except for a few slight differences. You see Michael is a Vampire who is sort of a detective and Niki is his thrall with some extra powers. Together they make one great PI team, if only he would allow Niki to assist him on his missions. Now their work has hit home when four women go missing and it’s up to Niki, Michael, and Jake to figure out who is behind these kidnappings. How will it all turn out in the end? You must read and won’t believe the ending! I’m hoping there is at least one more book to this series, if not I’ll be disappointed it ended on a cliff hanger.

Book Summary:
Four wealthy women kidnapped.

Three ransoms demanded and paid.

Two bodies returned, mutilated and drained of blood.

One man determined to avenge the wrongs of his past.

Nikki James is in San Francisco at the request of her partner and best friend, Jake. The wife of Jake’s old friend is missing, and Jake intends to find her�whatever the cost. While the authorities believe the kidnappings are the work of a sick mind, Nikki knows it is something much worse. Vampires. Six of them. And they know who she is, and why she�s there.

Michael Kelly has just returned from a vampire hunting expedition in his homeland and wants to spend some much-needed relaxation time with Nikki. But when he discovers she�s gone to San Francisco to pursue the vampire gang currently terrorizing the city, he has no choice except to follow. Not only to keep her safe from the gang, but because he fears the psychic talents she�s beginning to develop. Abilities she should not have and cannot control.

The chase takes them through the sewers and tunnels of San Francisco. As the body count begins to rise, so, too, does the danger. Michael isn�t the only one aware of Nikki�s new abilities, and she becomes a target. But Nikki has no intention of obeying Michael�s demands that she leave. She�s tired of playing it safe and wants him to realize it�s all or nothing. She�s either a full partner in his life, or she�s out.

But nothing prepares her for the price she has to pay for her stubbornness�the life of someone she loves.
