Andy is the Carus, "The Chosen" to the shifter world.
Being the Chosen, however, does not make her life easy. Since
she has multiple animals in her body, which is part of being the
Carus, she found she has multiple mates. Her role also
made her tempting to the Master Vampire who created a blood
bond with her against her will. Now she has been removed from
her job as an assassin for the SDR and made the Ambassador to
the vampires. She doesn't want any of this, but she does want
to survive and will do everything she can to ensure she does.
As the Ambassador to the Vampires, Andy is present when they
try to make a deal with the Demons. Things go south and a
dangerous demon is on the loose, attacking and killing at
random. Now Andy must stop the demon who is part of her
The demon has taken over the body of her friend and neighbour
Christopher. Andy doesn't want to kill him, but as the body
count rises her choices become fewer and fewer.
J.C. McKenzie has created a great series of stories about the
Carus. CARPE DEMON has been so well written you can't wait for
the next one. The characters are solid and Andy handles the
multiple guy problem better than most. CARPE DEMON ends on a
shocking scene that makes the reader reevaluate whether they
are on Team Tristin or Team Wick. I love this series and can't
wait for more.
As an ambassador with the Supernatural Regulatory Division,
Andy McNeilly is responsible for acting as the Liaison for
the Vancouver Vampire horde. The problem? She detests the
Vampire Master, and the SRD can't discover the beast she
keeps locked inside.
After a menacing Demon throws an important Vampire event
into chaos, Andy finds herself sniffing out crime scenes to
identify and locate the mystery fiend from the nether realm.
What she learns chills her bones.
Threatened by the Master Vampire to deal with the Demon,
Andy's complicated personal life doesn't make things easier.
She's willing to risk her life and pride to keep loved ones
safe. But how can she make a choice that will break one
heart...and complete another?
