No one trusts a doppelganger, and for good reason. Behind every stolen identity lies murder.
For Theodor Crane, his latest crime comes with a new family, a new job, a new set of troubles, yet there’s no escaping his past lives.
On the precipice of war between humans and supernaturals, Theo is thrust in the middle, charged with maintaining the balance while keeping his true identity a secret. Conspiracies and old hatreds lurk just below the surface, creeping to a head as the veil between the two worlds slowly crumbles. Failure means reigniting an age old conflict. Success means living a lie for the rest of his days. Either way, Theo loses.
I received this book to give an honest review.
I have to say for a novella this book was action packed, though I wanted a little bit of backstory on the world that is created. I assume that maybe in the other books that we get to know more.
We have a shifter who can eat a person's eyeball to gain that person's identity in this case the shifter becomes Theodor Crane. His job is to spy on the humans without them knowing it and thank goodness he goes because he uncovers the stealing of technology that can affect the supernatural world. It is up to Theodor and Jace to get to the bottom of it while trying to stay under the radar.
This book seems to deal with AI (artificial intelligence) and the supernatural in different ways. If you like action then you may like this book. It was filled with action from the get-go. I really liked Jace and how she was able to transform into a majestic creature.
