Mind Over Monsters

Mind Over Monsters - Jennifer Harlow I have to admit that I may have vampire fatigue so this book was a pleasant surprise. Main character, Bea has superpowers and as a result joins the FREAKS (Federal Response to Extra-Sensory and Kindred Supernaturals) a branch of the FBI. And she is an awesome zombie fighting machine. There is a murky, as yet, undeveloped love triangle between vampire Oliver a member of the FREAKS team, Bea and team leader Will, a werewolf. I say undeveloped because Bea rejects Oliver’s advances at every turn, that’s one of the things that makes this book so fabulous. Bea does not automatically fall for the charismatic vampire instead she is immediately drawn to the werewolf.

The other reason this book is fabulous is the underlying crime procedural drama. Bea’s first mission is in a town overtaken by zombies. Harlow does a great job developing the team dynamic and pulling the crime together. All while balancing the developing relationship between Will and Bea. I loved reading this book and cannot wait to read the next one in the series.
