Book Review: No Humans Involved by Kelley Armstrong(WOTO #7)

NO HUMANS INVOLVED stars necromancer Jaime Vegas. She's on a television shoot in Brentwood, Los Angeles when weird things start to happen. Invisible hands brush her arms, she sees movements out of the corner of her eye, unintelligible fragments of words are whispered in her ear. Jaime's used to seeing the dead and hearing them clearly. But now, for the first time in her life, she knows what humans mean when they say they're being haunted. Jaime is determined to get to the bottom of this, but she doesn't realise how low her investigation will take her, or what human-based horror she will uncover.

As Jamie delves through the dark underside of Los Angeles she'll need as much Otherworld help as she can get to survive unscathed. But Jeremy, the alpha-werewolf is there by her side to offer his protection. And maybe more than that . . .

My Review:
Jamie Vegas has agreed to take part in a TV special with two other paranormal experts,aiming to speak to the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. It could mean that she gets the long awaited TV career that she wanted and to add to the fun, Jeremy has agreed to come and visit her on set, sparking hopes that he might share her feelings about a relationship. But of course things are not about to run smoothly for Jamie when she gets involved in a case of dead kids being sacrificed for dark magic rituals.

I really like Jamie and I share her pain every time she makes an idiot of herself in front of Jeremy. We've all done that in front of someone we like though maybe not on the scale of Jamie's humiliations! I was really rooting for her and Jeremy to get together as I love both characters. It is nice to see their relationship develop and get pretty steamy! I liked all the trouble that Jaime and Jeremy managed to get into and as always I enjoy the appearance of Eve, a character that I was surprised to like as much as I did. We get introduced to Hope, who will feature in upcoming books. I couldn't really judge her in this book as I have already read Personal Demon which is her story and I liked it.

On a slightly bum note, I felt that the side plot of the TV show wasn't the strongest plot in the world and it did get a bit dull. You get the feeling that this show was just put there as a setting for the upcoming romance. It was ok but it could've been better. The other characters on set weren't particularly interesting to me so my mind did wander a wee bit during these sections. It didn't stop me enjoying the book though.I admit that I am always biased in favour of the books with the werewolf pack. The actual investigation into the dead kids was more interesting and gives Jamie the chance to take the spotlight for a change. I look forward to seeing more of Jamie as well in future books.
