Ted was Alana’s brother and thought Alana was wrong going to the courthouse to prove she was in fact alive and to get a divorce was a bad idea. Alana had married roger and he had been cheating on her with Barbie before Alana caught the virus. Now Alana had all kinds of proof of who she was but Alana was now supernatural and had a giant poisonous snake inside her. Roger had a fake death certificate on Alana. The world didn’t see supernaturals as people who had any rights . Alana proving she was alive would be near to impossible. Roger and her girlfriend Barbie were at the courthouse together and trying to walk away with Alana’s inheritance and house she had inherited from her grandparents as well as her business Vanilla and Honey bakery she had worked so hard to make a success. Then roger was going to sell everything to start a dog- and cat- grooming business. What scared humans from supernaturals was the Aegius virus. But what humans didn’t know was that you had to have some supernatural blood even a very little- in their genetics. But when humans get the virus they die within a couple of weeks. The people who had the virus were put in a special hospital on the outside of the city. There was a cure but it involved being turned into a supernatural which Alana had learned about from her roommate/best friend at the hospital Dahlia who was now seeing Alana’s brother Tad. Alana was a Drakaena- a woman siren who could shift at will into a giant venomous snake. Alana wasn’t a nice girl anymore she had killed to protect herself and those she loved. Alana had also kissed another man - Roma who was a vampire mob boss. Roma had stayed with Alana to protect her or so Alana believed. But there was no cross dating other species. Remo had slept and only slept with Alana after the battle with Achilles. Remo showed up when Alana was waiting to go to court today and he had his hearing moved up so he would be there if Alana needed help he was there. Remo told Alana he missed her. Roger tried to pull Alana away from Remo and Remo pulled Alana even closer to him and thanked Roger for being so stupid enough to let Alana go free. Officer Jensen was Remo’s inside man to the human police department and he reminded Remo they had to get to his hearing. Remo kissed Alana and told her that she undid him. Alana was Remo’s according to Remo and he didn’t share. Santos was Remo’s younger brother and a bitter rival and the head of a much smaller gang -Remo had almost three hundred members in his and that was the largest gang in North America. Officer Jensen came to Alana and said Remo needed her help and Alana shifted into the snake and helped him get free from Santos and his vampires. A man came up to Alana and it was Theseus and he told Alana he had to kill her in order to break the bond Hera had on him. Theseus was a demigod. Santos wanted what Remo had: power, respect, influence , and territory. But Santos didn’t want to go out and make it for himself. Remo and Santos had been at war since Remo had been turned almost four hundred years now. Alana shares her safe house with two friends Beth and Sandy.They took care of each other. Flora - Alana’s ya ya and grandmother sent a message through Hermes that she wanted to meet Alana at Vanilla and Honey. Flora wanted Alana to get Merlin- the warlock who had changed her so she wouldn’t die- to fight for Alana in court. Flora had been a priestess in Zeus's temple and had an affair with Zeus and brought a curse on the family. Theseus had used an enchanted arrow on Beth and she was obsessed with Theseus and charmed Sandy and they both left with Theseus. Theseus told the girls his name was Tim and saved Beth from being hit by a car. Then Santos and his vampires show up and have a snake catcher that has some oil on it that eats through Alana’s flesh and scales down to her bone. Alana gets away but is hurt but Ernie tells Alana to go in the water and that helps wash off the oil. Then the vampires catch up again and Alana barely makes it to the Supe Squad headquarters which is made up of werewolves. Alana was badly hurt and then Remo shows up and shortly after that Ernie with Damara the Satyr who had healed tad when he had almost died.
This was a good supernatural story with a twist using Gods and Goddesses and demigods and I liked it a lot. It was a fairly quick read and also had a good plot. Remo could not help caring about Alana even though he wouldn’t outright admit it not for a long time anyway. I felt bad that Theseus had turned Alana’s friends and even her brother on her except Remo and her ya ya. I thought it was funny when Alana got drunk even though it was dangerous and laughed out loud at Alana’s antics. I also loved how Flora stood for Alana no matter what. I also thought Alana’s mother was a butt for not accepting Alana after she had been changed. I loved how Alana stepped up when she had to even kill to protect herself and those she loved and cared about. All and all a good story. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
