Trusting Daywalkers is dangerous. Crossing them could be to your detriment. Given the world she lives in, this is something agent Francesca Drake should have remembered before entering the den of the beasts. When bodies start piling up, she is ordered to probe the Daywalker Academy. In the urgency she forgets her mixed heritage, as well as the most important rule. Only the pure bloods are welcomed. Not everything is what it seems at this prestigious place. Their sinister plans threaten the lives of everyone she’s ever known. Unaware of the secrets within, she is thrown into a world of sinful temptation, leaving her perplexed about the truth. Can she trust the most dangerous of the beasts to protect her? Or will they both perish before her mission ends? The balance...a single drop of blood.

Okay, so if you follow my reviews you will know I am an avid Maya Daniels stalker... ahem, I mean fan! She hasn't written a bad book yet in my opinion, and she remains the Queen of Sass. She's covered many different themes with her books, and then there is this one...
Franky is a hybrid, half vampire-half fae. The life expectancy of hybrids isn't very long, but Franky works for The Agency so hers is a little more 'fraught'. The trouble is, Franky's powers are on the fritz and she has no idea what's going on. She is saved by a stranger and ends up going to the one place in the world where she faces danger like no other.
OH. MY. GOD!!!!! I loved this book so much. I'm also begging for a Zoltan!!! I want one of my own. I'm not even joking. There is drama, kick-ass action, snark by the bucket-load, and plenty of attraction. To put it simply, I NEED ALL THE BOOKS NOW!!! Yes, I know I'm being greedy, but there is a reason for this. Ms. Daniels is also a pain in the ass 😉 with her cliffhanger endings. So I know that even if I get book two tomorrow, I will still be in the same position as I am now.
Investigated is the first book in the Daywalker Academy series, and I really can't recommend it highly enough. We are talking high class, quality writing and editing with nary an error to disrupt me! I read this book in one sitting. I simply couldn't put it down. Who needs food anyway? (Answer - my girls apparently!)
So there you go. If you are looking for an adult paranormal romance, with a Maya Daniels quirk, sass galore, and steaming attraction that is off the charts, then look no further.
