 Here’s the back cover blurb:

Newly undead shifter-turned-vampire Kita Nekai is coming to grips with the reality that her cat has not awakened since her change.

What she needs is a little time to adjust to her new liquid diet and the increasingly complex attraction to her sire, Nathanial. What she gets is a headless harlequin. With the body count rising, Kita is dragged into a dangerous game of vampire politics. Her involvement draws the attention of an ancient vampire known as the Collector who has a penchant for acquiring the unusual – like a pureblood shifter-turned vampire.

Kita still has unfinished business of her own and finds herself deeper in magical debt.

It’s a bad time to be a kitten who can’t slip her skin.

This is the second book in Price’s “Haven” series.  I’m usually hesitant to pick up a book in the middle of a series but since I won it as one of my Early Reviewer books I didn’t have much choice.  It was no problem at all getting caught up with the who’s who, what happened before and what was happening now.  This was an ebook and I read it on my iPhone with the Dropbox application.

The story was gripping from the first page and I didn’t want to put it down.  An alien shapeshifter turned vampire?  It sounds crazy but it works.  And how could I not like Nathanial, the vampire with a dog who lets Kita’s shapeshifter friend stick around until he can return to their planet?  Kita finds she’s no longer able to shift to her cat form nor is she able to communicate with her sire as expected.  Her sense of smell is greater than other vampires and when combined with her catlike curiosity and independent streak naturally makes her the one who investigates what is going on with the headless harlequin.
