Press: Kensington; Original edition (May 1, 2012)
Author Name:Jayne, Hannah
She's the new head of the Underworld Detection Agency's strangest division.
What a nightmare.
.Being a human immune to magic helped Sophie Lawson get promoted.
It's also made her a major, very reluctant player in a game that stretches beyond even the Underworld.
Having handsome buttoned-down Englishman Will as her new guardian is one tempting blessing, especially since sexy fallen angel Alex is mysteriously MIA lately.
But as a frightening number of demons start disappearing around the city, Sophie suspects that an Armageddon-level prophecy is about to become everyone's nightmare.
And her investigation is testing her bravery--and Will's unexpected vulnerability--in ways neither could predict.
Now Sophie and Will are fast running out of time as an unstoppable evil prepares to lay waste to demons and humans alike.
.Praise for Hannah Jayne's Under Attack"This urban fantasy tale smartly balances riveting action with wonderful light touches.
.New readers and returning fans will find it entirely accessible and enjoyable." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

- I like the characters. I think there's gold in them, but the plots are so thin you can see right through. But that's still ok for this genre.
- GENRE: Urban FantasyTHEME: Vampires, Werewolf, and AngelsRECEIVED: Received for Review from AuthorAUTHORS BLOG: [...]REVIEW:Sophie Lawson is back! Hannah Jayne does it again and this time Sophie gets deeply involved in a dangerous case. I really enjoy Jayne's writing and her very dynamic characters that she has created, plus adding some humor in the mix makes it all that more entertaining.Sophie is a rare "human" known as the Vessel and she even has her very own Guardian Will, whom protects her a lot. Luckily he's around to watch over her because supernatural beings are being targeted and since the Angel Alex isn't around to help she and Will get deep in some trouble trying to figure out what's going on. Sophie I felt has grown up a little more in the novel, she's not pinning over Alex as much because he's on a mission of his own this time around. She concentrates more on how Supernatural beings are disappearing and being targeted by an unknown person, and she seems to be in the middle of it all. I like how she takes things into her own hands when know one else will listen, no matter how much she puts herself in danger.Will, Sophie's Guardian got a major role, which of course I loved! I feel he has a better connection with her and also has done a lot to keep her safe. He also is the only one that helps her with the case, Nina is too love struck with a writer and in wanting to write a novel of her own. So Will seems to be the only one here for Sophie and gets to steam it up with her as well.Nina, Sophie's BFF and vampire was actually not my favorite this time around. She was in a way rude to Sophie not understanding that her friend has been through a lot and is in the middle of something dangerous. She really only cared about this very stuck up writer, that doesn't believe in the supernatural. I hope she can redeem herself in the next novel, but I do always love her off the wall fashionista humor.In the end there is a cliffhanger and thank the gods there was an excerpt in the back for me to read or I would have been freaking out. But I'm so excited to say one of my favorite characters is back, not sure for how long though. Sophie has a lot to look forward to and I think Alex and Will are going to need to work together with her to stop the dangers that are coming.Overall I really enjoyed this third installment, I can't wait to see what happens next. Especially in the romance category since there is a bit of a love triangle. Though I'm Team Will at this point. The writing is great and Sophie is such a quirky and entertaining lead that I'm always excited to see what she does next. I highly recommend this Urban Fantasy series and everyone should start reading this asap!RECOMMENDATION:This is an adult novel with humor, action and all the right stuff that everyone wants in the Urban Fantasy genre. Fans of authors Ann Aguirre and Jennifer Estep will be captivated by Hannah Jayne's novel Under Suspicion.
- Another fantastic book by Hannah Jayne.
- Three books in and Sophie is still running in circles. The first twenty chapters are humdrum. The majority of the book is spent repeating details learned in first two books.
- I enjoy Hannah's light side of action adventure. I do find the accent on female fashion a little obscure, I have to ask my wife about the style.
- I love these books. What a fun, funny series with a believable heroine. I can't wait for the next one.
- Oh Sophie....you silly, silly breather, you!The Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles is a series and as such, I would highly suggest you start by reading Book 1 and...
- Have read them all. The series is entertaining and keeps a good progression in themes building across books, so far.
- I liked the sequel much better! The first started out a little slow to me, but this one was much better!
- Sophie Lawson is settling nicely into her job as the UDA's new head of the Fallen Angel Division. Her newly identified role as Vessel of Souls...
- Definitely better than book 2. The mystery in this book was pretty good, and it definitely kept me guessing.
- A new position at the UDA ensures Sophie will have her hands full yet again. If she can keep it that is. The vampires are infiltrating every position at the UDA and Sophie fears her new job might not be hers for long. Especially if she keeps defying orders not to investigate the disappearances and attacks of her clients.Along with her guardian Will, Sophie sets out to figure out who or what is attacking everyone around her and why vampires seem to be the only ones unaffected.Sophie Lawson is back in this third installment of the Underworld Detection Agency series and she's got a new job as the head of the fallen angels division. As being the only person at the UDA who has dealt with not one but two fallen angels, the head of the UDA, Dixon has rethought his decision to fire her and has instead given her a promotion of sorts. Except right from the beginning Sophie can tell something is up. The vampires are taking over the UDA slowly but noticeably. Including Vlad who has now become Sophie's boss. Her favorite love-to-hate client Mrs Henderson had disappeared leaving her house in disarray and dragon blood all over the walls. A drowned Centaur is also found at the bottom of one of the piers. Dixon doesn't seem too enthused to go looking for the killer and refuses to connect the two together.When a banshee client comes in claiming to have been attacked Sophie knows she can sit idly by no longer. She's on her own this time because Alex has left town and won't answer her calls. She becomes dependent upon her guardian, Will to be by her side. Poor Will, I feel kinda bad for him. Sophie is still hung up on Alex and Will is hung up on her. He is dependable though and takes his role of guardian seriously and tries his best to keep her safe. Doesn't mean she doesn't get beat to a pulp several times. I swear, you'd think by the third book the woman would either learn to use a gun or maybe take some fighting classes but she seems content to be a punching bag for every baddie wanting to take over the world.Of course Nina is back with her hilarious one liners and continuous banter being lobbed between her and every single person she meets. Her dialogue definitely spices this one up. I love her protectiveness and human qualities. She has found her soul mate in a writer that is ironically out to disprove that vampires exist and who may also have a role in the string of supernatural killing plaguing the city. Sophie isn't sure what he is hiding but she's sure it's something. Then there is the fact none of the attacks have been on vampires. Could the vampire movement Vlad is a part of be behind everything and if so is Vlad secretly out to kill Sophie?I found Under Suspicion to be aptly named since mostly everyone is a suspect in this one. With Alex mostly out of the picture till the most inopportune time Sophie and Will become closer and honestly I'm kind of rooting for them at this point. Pending Will doesn't turn out to be a psychopath of course. Alex is just so douchey. Leaving Sophie pretty much unprotected makes me think yet again that he might only be out for his greater good.The continuation of the UDA story line is well wrote and while the fluffiness can get a bit old at times I like the direction and evolution the series is starting to take. I am looking forward to finding out what happens next after the cliff hanger ending that has now ensured I tune back in for the fourth book (publication unknown).I give Under Suspicion by Hannah Jayne 3.50 stars!Nikki @ Ramblings From A Chaotic Mind
- I am having so much fun with these books...Sophie finally takes a chance with Will and Nina continues her pursuit of ever afterlife love...amusing reading...on to the next installment.
- I like the book,but Sophie needs to grow some claws or a back bone. Through all the previous books she has not saved herself from the bad guy not once. If crying was a super power Sophie would be the world's best. I'm about to read Under the Gun, then the next book in the series and I pray to the book God's that the main character will toughen up and kick some butt.
- The plot is good, and so is writing. The three star rating is because the heroine frustrates me because she's always so woe is me.
