It's YA and Urban Fantasy. Two of my favorite genres combined. Add in humor, killer writing, boys that make my heart race, a heroine that I actually am rooting for and genuinely like, awesome world-building, and some secrets that are bound to get messy in the next few books and I am hooked.
I'm not even sure how to describe this book without over-explaining or giving away things that I just loved discovering. Sooooo....
Oh my gosh, I was a giggly mess while reading this book. Crap. I'm a giggly mess now as I write my convoluted fan-girl review. I love Annette Marie, where oh where has she been all of my reading life. I love the way she writes and her characters and well I am just mad love in love with this series.
I'm not even going to bother trying to recount the synopsis or explain what the heck is going on, you can read the synopsis or better yet just go read the book. Now. Pronto. Immediately.
Piper is off the hook awesome. Seriously. I love this girl. I want to be besties with this crazy chick. She's bad ass, strong, and willing to go balls to the wall for her family. She has moments were her age shows, but for the most part I just really liked her.
Okay...now onto the boys. Crap there I go being all giggly again. Can't wipe the grin from my face over the two, yup! two boys that are in Piper's life and that get dragged into the insanity and rushing fast paced crazy that Piper is sucked into.
Lyre and Ash. OMG. Again, where oh where has Annette Marie been all of my reading life. Crap on crackers, the boys...I love them. I'm with Piper on this one, I can't completely decide who I like more.
Lyre is a smoking hot Incubus. Just. Wow. Lyre is the bad boy with a golden heart streaking through all of that bad. Fantastically fantastic and fiercely loyal to Ash, his best friend. I loved him, and all of his banter with Piper. He made me grin basically any time he was opening his mouth or teasing the crap out of Piper.
And then there's Ash. Oh man. Oh missus. Okay. Maybe I do know who I like more 'cuz my heart just kind of jumps whenever I think about Ash and how he is with Piper. Holy crapazolla.
Ash isn't a bad boy. He's just bad. BAD. But oh so good all at the same time. Quietly powerful, he's a Draconian and one of the last of his family line. He's high on the totem pole of badassery and completely intriguing. My goodness. Ash just blew me away. The more I got into this book, the more I wanted to know.
And there is this one scene....AH! I can't even. I literally can't even say anything about it, but when you get to that scene between him and Piper....It's a good scene. Really good.
Ah!! Okay, so I've fan-girled everywhere.
The ending isn't completely frustrating but it definitely leaves you desperately clicking for the next book. Which I've clicked and now I'm off to read! More Piper, Ash & Lyre!!! Eeek!
Don't let the YA part of this series scare you off, it doesn't read like YA and for the most part I completely forgot that's what I was reading. But I also love YA...so I digress, but seriously read Chase the Dark, it's amazeballs.

Piper is thrown into an incredible and dangerous adventure after a precious and powerful weapon is stolen from her Consulate and she is falsley accused as the thief. She goes on the run to clear her name with two intriguing daemons, one an incubus who constantly flirts with her, the other a powerful and mysterious draconian.
You can really feel her character evolve and grow as the story progresses. An enjoyable series for those of all ages!
While Piper did annoy me sometimes because of her naivety, I was never turned off from her character. She's flawed and learning as she goes which I appreciated.
As for the love interests I have to say I'm really not fond of love triangles...if I'm being honest, I LOATHE them! But while there are two guys I never actually felt like there was a "love triangle". Trust me when I say i cannot abide love triangles and yet these characters' relationships never turned me off or made me angry. Color me shocked and pleasantly surprised! So if you've been holding back from reading this because of a love triangle, I urge you to give it a try.
Lyre is an incubus...he's charming, handsome, and beyond flirtatious-it's who he is. Ash is stoic, cold, and sexy. They both have a different sort of relationship with Piper and I really enjoyed the lack of squabbling and possessive jealousy between the two guys. In fact, they're friends and have a strong relationship on their own.
I really enjoyed the plot and thought the pacing was very well done. The ending wrapped up nicely by finishing off the immediate issues while leaving the big problems open for the series to continue and grow.
This series was extremely when written and thought out. Once one problem was solved, another would pop up in some form. When reading a story of any sorts, you think of which characters are to be shipped and which are better off elsewhere. Maybe that's just me. When reading the Steel & Stone series, I was caught between Lyre and Ashtaroth. No I will not give anything away, but I was not decided on who to ship until well into the second.
I am pleased and will not satisfied until I read what Annette Marie has in store for the next installment of the Steel & Stone series.
