Amazon reviewer William Howe says "The Parasol Protectorate was the first time I read a book with an 'anti-magic' character. This opens the door for a more human approach and more restrictions on the supernatural community which enhances the storytelling. Very well crafted with several details in early chapters becoming important later. The tie in to Stoker, Shelley, and Byron was fun without being obvious (FINALLY!!! Vampires who WEREN'T famous before they died!!). The use of nulls to 'age' vampires who were turned young was ingenious."

Scarlett Bernard knows about personal space: step within ten feet of her, and any supernatural spells or demonic forces are instantly defused—vampires and werewolves become human again, and witches can’t get out so much as a “hocus pocus.” This special skill makes her a null and very valuable to Los Angeles’s three most powerful magical communities, who utilize her ability to scrub crime scenes clean of all traces of the paranormal to keep humanity, and the LAPD, in the dark.

But one night Scarlett’s late arrival to a grisly murder scene reveals her agenda and ends with LAPD’s Jesse Cruz tracking her down to strike a deal: he’ll keep quiet about the undead underworld if she helps solve the case. Their pact doesn’t sit well with Dash, the city’s chief bloodsucker, who fears his whole vampire empire is at stake. And when clues start to point to Scarlett, it’ll take more than her unique powers to catch the real killer and clear her name.
