Shortly after she picked up a guitar, Miranda Grey conquered the Austin music scene with a newfound ability to psychically manipulate her audience’s emotions. But as her powers outgrow her control, her mind is increasingly invaded by haunting secrets and overwhelming sadness. Unable to look anyone in the eye, Miranda is fast approaching the edge of insanity – with no one to catch her fall…
When he outlawed killing humans, David Solomon ignited a civil war among Austin’s vampires. As Prime of the South, his sympathy for mortals angered the old guard who refuse to control their violent urges. David has his hands full with the growing insurgency, but he takes in a broken-down woman, a musician in need of supernatural guidance. Little does he know that Miranda Grey has the power to change his world as well.

Bought from BetterWorldBooks. It is ex library stock from the Euless Public Library in Euless, Texas, USA (pictured).

8 out of 10

An enjoyable read, but a few comments.
We keep getting told that Miranda is short, but she is "5'4"'; that is taller than the average female here in Australia, so I couldn't see her as 'short'. However, the idea that the heroine is 'petite'; on the short side, is getting rather monotonous, because I have read a number of books lately where the heroines are short. For books yet to be written; be original and make the heroine average height, or be 'really' daring and make her taller than average. Too much petiteness!
Likewise, several books I have read lately have had red haired main characters; making the odds of this larger than what red hair appears in nature.
A page turner though, and if there is another book that follows this, I would like to read it.
