This book had good potential but unfortunately it lacked the depth to win me over It was just an okay read for me I often felt like I was watching television or reading a screen play instead of a novel I was being told what was happening without enough detail to make me feel like I was part of the story A bit like I was watching through a window I could not connect with the charactersThere was a bit of a love triangle but we really don't know anything about Dominic or Ian other than superficial information I did not understand Cassidy's continuing relationship with Ian as it was apparent to me that he was only interested in killing vampires no matter the fallout I felt like despite wanting to turn her Dominic truly cared about her However I would have liked much back story on these gentlemen Dominic is a 500 year old vampire there is so much room there to write a compelling character and we just don't have it in this book The book is written from Cassidy's point of view yet the details of her life are vague or glossed over Outside of her work we are only briefly told about how she received her injury the death of her parents and uickly meet her brother Nathan She also appears to have some sort of sexual hangup or issue that is mentioned during an encounter with Ian but we never learn what is or the reasons behind it Like I said before there is just not enough depthI know all I have said so far sounds negative but it was not a bad read It just did not hold my interest as much as I would have liked There are some interesting things The vampires are not your normal unflawed beautiful characters Rather they can appear beautiful if they are well fed but they also transform into gruesome creatures that look somewhat like gargoyles So that was a new take on this fictional species And while the vampires were humans before they turned not all humans can become a vampire Only special humans such as Cassidy and Ian which are called night bloods Only their DNA can accept the mutation This is not a novel idea but its not used as often as other paranormal tropes I will read the next book in the series to see where it goes but I really hope the love triangle doesn't continue because I just didn't buy the relationship with Ian WalkerI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

E middle of a vampire rebellion Dominic insists she can help him stop the coming war but wary of his intentions Cassidy enlists the help of the charming Ian Walker a fellow night blood As the battle between vampires takes over the city Cassidy will have to tap into her newfound powers and decide where to place her trus. When life gets crazy I unabashedly escape by searching my e library for paranormal romance Stand aside real world problems there are vampires to rein in and maybe even fall in love with The City Beneath is successful in that it's a uick read that helped me forget my worries but the world doesn't hold up as well as it shouldThe good Cassidy has realistic baggage and is as strong as she can be considering the circumstances Dominic is alpha without being an asshole and has a history that will probably be covered in future books Cassidy doesn't let Dominic pull the wool over her eyes She participates in his plans only after she's taken all angles into account and called out any bullshit How I love a heroine that thinks The characterization is strong and the plot never loses its speedThe not so good Cassidy is treated as a human pin cushion For all her smarts she ends up getting used as bait A lot She calls Dominic out on this which makes it nearly tolerable but the powers of her own outlined in the jacket copy are scant indeed While the book takes place in Brooklyn I never felt like I was there or even in a major East coast city It could take place in any large city really Hand in hand with that the world building is weak Certain elements are well covered vampire care and feeding and others are neatly ignored anything than 10 feet away from the heroine While I liked the characters there's not enough of a world here to make me want to go back There's not a love triangle but of a trust triangle that's set up early on Part way through one corner of the triangle does something unforgivable but the heroine keeps working with him anyway I couldn't wrap my mind around it Cassidy is a reporter but sometimes she acts like a police detective In the past she was shot while backing up a police officer but why the hell was a reporter back up for a police officerWhile The City Beneath was diverting I won't be reading the seuel It does make me want to get back into paranormal and urban fantasy though
