Welcome to Harmony—where the rules are a little different.

Life is tough these days for Lydia Smith, licensed para-archaeologist. Seriously stressed-out from a nasty incident in an alien tomb, she is obliged to work part-time in Shrimpton’s House of Ancient Horrors, a very low-budget museum. She has a plan to get her career back on track, but it isn’t going well. Stuff keeps happening.

Take the dead body that she discovered in one of the sarcophagus exhibits. Who needed that? Finding out that her new client, Emmett London, is one of the most dangerous men in the city isn’t helping matters either. And that’s just today’s list of setbacks. Here in the shadows of the Dead City of Old Cadence, things don’t really heat up until After Dark.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting This is the first time I have read a book that was not set on earth...I am interested to see how this series evolves and the link with the arcane society in future books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read This is set early in the series. The story is sound but a little thin in places. All in all it's a pleasant read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After dark I find this series refreshing... A world once inhabited by aliens and now inhabited by humans cut off from earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nathalie This book is fantastic. Well written, and fast paced. I devoured the book in 6 hours! Both the characters and the plot were believable and engrossing. The interaction from all the characters was funny and touching. I liked the characters and the writting so much I immediatly went out and bought several other books by the author.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from After Dark I was disappointed by this book. She changed the location and type of physic power. Her books usually give you a conclusion with the couple getting together, but this ending was vague. There was no cross reference to previous books. Inconsistent.
