Overall, this book was very entertaining, funny in plenty of places, and it had loads of action. The dialogue does have a few cuss words and a little sexual content, but nothing graphic, which was fine for me. That being said, it worked for me in this book, and was not a common thread. It was an interesting world to live in while I read it. The only thing that took away from it was the lack of good editing, but it wasn't bad enough to be unreadable. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a different kind of fantasy/mythical read. I will be reading the next book.
There is an editing issue in this book though, which I understand is not present in the subsequent books (I'm about to start on the 2nd one so I'll let you know) but despite that I found it entertaining.

Book: Dark Cotillion Bk #1 in the Brenna Strachan series
My Star Rating: 4 out of 5
Will I read I read it again? Yes
This review is my honest opinion and I have fully read this book.
I got this book free from Amazon and I loved this first book. In this book we are introduced with many different Elders. The main characters you are introduced to is:
Lucifer- Overlord of Demon
Morgana- Overlord of Fey
Fenir- Overlord of Lycans
Uther Pendragon- The Keeper (you will find out more about Pendragon in the other books)
Ba’al- Overlord of Gargoyles
Magnus – most powerful witch currently living
In this world the Demons are not “evil” and the Angels not “good”. In this book it starts off with the prophecy told by the centaurs. The prophecy is telling of how Lucifer will find his human witch mate. Once he finds his mate they will have children. One child that has lavender skin who will ruin this world.
That child is Brenna and Chiron the Centaur wants her dead before she starts maturing and becomes the strongest of them all.
This book has humor and action packed. Can’t wait to read book 2!
