Nita’s family isn’t like everyone else’s–unless their family also sells the body parts of supernaturals on the black market. Nita’s mother hunts and kills the supernaturals, and Nita dissects them. Then they send the parts for sale.
When Nita’s mother brings one home alive, it’s a bridge too far for Nita. Suddenly, it brings home what it is they actually do. Their subjects have lives. After Nita helps him escape, she finds out what life is like for the hunted supernaturals when she herself is captured–after all, she’s secretly a supernatural herself.
Schaeffer creates an interesting and full world of supernaturals and a dark underground. Nita is an interesting character, and the world inventive enough to encourage me to try the next in the series when it comes out.
