In Book One of The Night Code Saga, Venomoid, paranormal creatures are governed by the IPO, a secret police force that ensures vampires, zombies, and others follow all required public safety regulations. Among the officers is 17 year-old Lorin, the IPO's most skilled cadet. His co-workers distrust him, however, and in extreme cases barely tolerate him. As a vampire, he must follow the rules -- including turning a blind eye to the IPO's practice of torturing prisoners -- or face death by sunlight exposure.
On one intense dragon-hunting mission, Lorin encounters Lex, a handsome but flesh-eating paranormal who is quickly intrigued by the young vampire. Lorin fears this hunter, but as an unexpected friendship unfolds between the two, an even more unlikely romance blossoms. The problem is Lex is on the IPO's radar, and when they capture him for scientific experimentation, Lorin must risk his life to overthrow the organization he's always feared in order to save his love.

This was an excellent beginning to this series. From the beginning I was wondering what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed reading about the zombies, werewolves and vampires. Thin go are a bit different than I'm used to reading, but it was very interesting. I was horrified when the IPO did what they did to Lorin, as well as all the experiments they had obviously been performing on paranormals. I love Lily!!! I have always had a soft spot for dragons, as well as a healthy obsession for them lol. I can't wait for her to grow up and see what happens then.
I'm curious about this Judd character though, sometimes it seemed like he may be more than a friend, then others he was just a good buddy. I could have been just reading more into it than most though lol. I love Lex, yes he's a zombie but I really liked his character. I'm curious where Lorin's maker cones into this as he is mentioned a bit in the end by a couple of people.
Overall this was a great read and I for one cannot wait for the next installment. I'm giving this a rating of 4 hearts.
