Their budding relationship becomes even more complicated when Cooper talks Andi into letting him ride-along on one of her repos, and they come across a very naked, very dead body.

But now he’s back older, wiser, and a hell of a lot tougher. When he encounters Evie at her mama’s salon, he knows he’ll do anything to make it right again.

But then, Ariyl and Ludlo aren’t who they claim to be either.

When offered the opportunity to return to those crushing depths in search of the Megs, Taylor leaps at the chance… but the quest for scientific knowledge (and personal vindication) becomes a desperate fight for survival, when the most vicious predator that the earth has ever known is freed to once-again hunt the surface.

I am loving me some Elicia Hyder! This series has all my favorite genres rolled up into one book. Elicia has weaved a fantastic and very unique plot that’s a supernatural thriller with tons of mystery, suspense and laugh out loud humor as well as some serious sex appeal. I love that Sloan is not your typical heroine and isn’t predictable. Sloan, Adrienne, Nathan and Warren really make this story rock.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?: The inspiration for the films Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049
By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force.
