Double Exposure (Pōneke Shadows #1) by Anne Barwell

Double Exposure is the start of a new series Poneke Shadows series. Great mystery involving the supernaturals!

From the blurb:

Vampires and werewolves live long lives. The Sleepless City saga might have ended but the story continues…

Someone is hunting supernaturals.

Vampire Simon Hawthorne and his human partner Ben Leyton’s plans for a peaceful holiday with family are hijacked by the New Zealand Supernatural Council.

Tensions are on the rise in Wellington. Supernatural councillors are disappearing. Werewolves are suspicious of anyone human or vampire. If they don’t work together, their enemy has already won.

And no one with a connection to the supernatural world is safe.

Janet's Review:

Double Exposure is the start of a new series Poneke Shadows series. Double Exposure is a really good story, but I felt lost in the beginning. I didn’t realize that it’s an offshoot of another series so I would recommend reading that series first. 

I’ll go back and read that soon. I really like Ben and Simon. They had so much love for each other. They had differences but they also communicated. I also really loved the found family aspect of the story. 

They learn there is a new threat as they try to navigate the supernatural community all the while dealing with a possible war between extremists. 

I loved the mystery of who’s killing the supernaturals in Wellington! Ben. and Simon are surrounded by a fantastic group of secondary characters. 

Overall, Double Exposure is a really good story! Well written with nice pacing! Highly recommend.
