Woman King
By Evette Davis
Star Rating: 3.5 out of 5

In addition to its own fantastical world, Woman King makes full use of San Francisco as a backdrop...The city's ubiquitous fog, diverse culture, and environmentally conscious atmosphere tie into the novel's emphasis on the supernatural in unexpected ways. Woman King puts the witty, femme-power elements reminiscent of Charmed at a contemporary tempo, with, of course, the addition of myth and lore. Readers familiar with the area will appreciate constant references to the Bay Area, as well as creatively conjured world of the Council who quietly works within human affairs to keep a balance of justice.

Woman King

Olivia Shepard had been born an empath, but as she watched the highs and lows of her mom, she rejected her gift as her mom and grandmother called it, but to her it was a curse. Olivia Shepard Consulting had trouble keeping her clients once Stoner Hallbert recouped from his ex-wife's embezzlement, it seem as if he could do no wrong and as she learned he had stolen another long time client, she flew to pieces and went on a drinking binge, only to pass out in her kitchen................

William, a one hundred eighty-one year old vampire, saw Olivia in a tunnel of San Francisco as he was playing his guitar and fell for the woman who was not quite human. Normally, he chose to leave humans to their own devices and screwing up the world. Humans never learned and continued to make the same mistakes over and over again.................

WOW, Beware of the fog that creeps across the city that hides The Other from human eyes!! Ms. Davis spins a completely plausible story that makes some forever squint at the the fog! Woman King will delight readers!!

I'm sorry. I tried to be open minded about this book, but apparently that wasn't enough to find any merit in it. Mind you, it's competently written. The author can write. But the problem is that it's completely sterile writing. For a book that's supposed to be about witches and fairies and vampires, there's nothing otherworldly about the characters who possess these traits. We are simply told that they are witches and vampires and just are expected to buy it as simply as if saying that someone has blue eyes and someone else has brown eyes. And that whole bit about the fog in San Francisco being a cover for their paranormal meetings and existence, well, I'm sorry again, I felt like I was in kindergarten and the teacher had rounded us up and said, "listen children, do you know what is really behind the fog in San Francisco: witches and fairies and vampires. By my standards a very ludicrous and infantile manner of setting the premise. Another equally annoying trait of the writing is how the author has to take us step by step through each physical movement of the characters: I opened the door. I walked inside. I took ten steps to the bed. I sat down on the bed. I lay down on the bed. Granted, it wasn't that step by step, but pretty close to it and there were times I wanted to scream if I had to have this spelled out for me one more time. But perhaps the most annoying aspect is the main character of the story: a rather self-righteous, overly indignant female when things don't go her way. Just because William, who might as well be a milkman for as much a vampire as he is, doesn't agree with her political views or ideas about humanity, Olivia has a little hissy fit and won't answer his calls. And I can't stand the way he calls her "darlin.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Woman King is the first book in a soon-to-be trilogy. It primarily takes place in San Francisco. Olivia is an empath that has blocked her ability most of her life because of the affects it had on her mother. Suddenly, her career and emotional state changes dramatically. She meets a time-walker set out to help her. Through the time-walker, she learns that a demon has been targeting her because she is weakened from not using her powers. Her world turns upside down as she copes with learning how to strengthen her abilities to protect herself from the demon and learning that there are a lot more paranormal things to this world than she originally thought - and she falls for one of them.

The story is written in first-person through Olivia. Olivia - after denying her gift for a long time - embraces her empathic abilities and discovers new adventures and job opportunities with the help of a new friend, Elsa. Elsa is a time-walker that was sent by her grandmother to help Olivia. Through her new connection she sees the world differently. There are "Others" that walk with regular humans - vampire, werewolves, witches, and even fairies. Olivia must train herself physical, mentally, and emotionally to overcome the destructive power of a demon. Yet, a demon is not the only thing that Olivia should be worrying about. She eventually falls in love with William, who is not quite human himself. Olivia is a strong character who learns to overcome her own limitations and help those around her. Without adding any spoilers, I'll try to stay vague on this next part. I was a little surprised that the one character disappeared at the end without finding out something of what happened to him/her before the book concluded.

This was a great book! I really enjoyed it. The main character showed growth, without whining. So many books right now have an MC that whines through the first half of the story about how they don't WANT to do something, it was refreshing to read something different. The story did not end in a cliffhanger, but left a few strands of the plot unanswered, which made me feel satisfied and yet wanting the next book. This is the first book I've read by this author, and I'll definitely be reading more! The male love interest was exciting and did not detract from the MC's independence, which was awesome. If you're looking for a book with an independent, strong, female protagonist, this one is for you.
