REALM WALKER is the second book in the Realm Walker series by Kathleen Collins. I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Juliana Norris is a Realm Walker with the Agency. The agency she works for sends her out to retrieve paranormal creatures who cause havoc. She is the best at her job and the job is extremely dangerous. It is so dangerous, that she has died a few times. While Juliana is working with the local police precinct to help pin down a serial kidnapper/murderer, Thomas is secretly hunting down Raoul, the vampire responsible for nearly breaking Juliana, raping her and leaving her for dead. Thomas is torn between his need to keep her safe and his desire to exact vengeance against Raoul. Juliana knows Thomas is keeping something from her, but they still have a lot to work on as a couple and she must focus on solving her current case before any further children are kidnapped or murdered.

Overall, I enjoyed reading DEATH'S DAUGHTER, but I found the mystery to be predictable. So mush so, I figured out who The Thief was halfway through. Needing to know about Juliana and Thomas's relationship is what kept me going. It was a quick read, but i was disappointed at the ease of which I determined who the The Thief was. DEATH'S DAUGHTER did not leave me with the feeling of having missed something important, as REALM WALKER did.

DEATH'S DAUGHTER is definitely more Urban Fantasy than Paranormal Romance. I am okay with this. In fact I prefer Urban Fantasy, but if you are expecting PNR, you will be disappointed. Although The Thief was easily discerned, I found the book enjoyable and was glad to witness the evolution of Thomas and Juliana's relationship.
