Synopsis (Goodreads):
Someone's importing illegal metals into Las Vegas. Iron, to be specific: the only substance that can instantly kill one of the deadly sidhe. But there are no sidhe in Las Vegas. Not anymore. Dana McIntyre killed the last of them two weeks earlier.

Importing the iron seems to be a matter of life and death, though. Mostly death. People are being slaughtered over these imports, and Dana can't figure out why. It's a puzzle that must be solved quickly and quietly. If the Office of Preternatural Affairs realizes how destabilized Las Vegas has become, they'll shut down vampire hunters like Dana.

She has no choice but to partner with Nissa Royal, the right hand of the city's master vampire, to hunt down the iron's buyer. Nissa's interested in a lot more than a functional partnership from Dana, though. She won't settle for anything less than Dana's soul...
Thoughts on Kill Game: Things never go as planned for people like Dana, do they? Getting from point A to point B tends to involve betrayal and backstabbing and truths that might be better left undiscovered. Nah, scratch that last part. Dana's not much for games. Well, wait. She kinda is. But I do think she prefers the bitter truth far more than a sweet lie.

I guess the hard part about Dana is she never seems to take the easy route. Even when she thinks she's doing the right thing, it has a tendency to blow up in her face. She's jaded and cynical, but when she trusts, she trusts hard and fast.

And that's not always a good thing. Especially once you throw in some of the preternaturals she has contact with.

On the other hand, she does have a small group who have her back. Her coworkers at the Hunting Club put up with her abrasive attitude and they've gone out of their way on more than one occasion to pull her back from the brink. Buuuuuut, this being a S.M. Reine series, I trust NO ONE. Anyone can be bought if the price is right and there's always something slithering in the shadows.

To say I might have developed trust issues after these books might be understating things. TRUST NO ONE!
