Blurb from Goodreads:
Human medicine is easy. On her first day at Grace General Hospital, new intern Aline Harman risks vampire infection, demonic possession, and having her heart torn out of her chest... and this from her colleagues.
Juggling transhuman politics only becomes more difficult when a patient's life is at stake. With a zombie to resucitate and a mermaid in critical care, Aline has her hands full. At least the doctors are good-looking.
This book was much more novella than novel. But, that totally isn't a negative thing! I feel like I was reading an episode script for a paranormal version of a very popular hospital-drama.
In the beginning there's Aline, who is introduced to a world of paranormal creatures that she never knew existed. And while this is a big aspect of the plot, there's a WHOLE other realm here that we're involved in. There are patients, whose stories we become a part of and we get to see Aline and her fellow colleagues do their best as doctors to save lives while juggling explosive personal relationships amongst themselves. Sound familiar? Seriously, it's Grey's Anatomy on paranormal steroids. I love it!!!
Because this book is so short, and I don't like giving spoilers, I'll just say that there are some yummy doctors, some crazy doctor, and some I'm-not-really-sure-what-to-think-of-them-yet doctors. But, I will DEFINITELY be checking out the next installment of this awesome series!
My Rating: 4/5 Stars
