There is way too much story to try to summarize, and way too many characters to bring in. Really, all you need to know up front is that Jane True has grown up in this teeny tiny small tourist town, but she has been considered an outsider her entire life. One night on her way home from work, she runs into some fascinating beings and some of her questions are answered.
Now, you have to know up front that Jane is terribly funny - to herself. I found myself laughing out loud numerous times, especially at a certain scene in a pool towards the end of the book. I had to stop reading so I could gather myself to finish it. I was crying I was laughing so hard. Some of the better conversations were within Jane's psyche, between her libido and her common sense.
There are a couple of racy scenes, but with supernatural creatures, hormones apparently always run rampant.
I found this world beautifully crafted and the characters are unique, with Peeler's own twist on popular culture's definition of each. I totally got lost in her world and wanted to live there myself. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series and am planning how to obtain them and get them read before the school year starts back in three weeks.
