Veronica has done a beautiful job creating this world of paranormal life within the normal world we know. I know this world well as she has not set the story in a fictional place, but right in my own backyard. I love that the story takes place in the metropolitan area of Denver, CO and allows the reader to relate directly with many locations in the book.
She continues to enhance the relation with the reader by fully integrating the normal and paranormal worlds and showing that the two can believably coexist. It's great to see this coexistence as compared to many other paranormal adventures that either exclude the normal world or at an eternal war with it.
"A Griffin Scorned" is a great start to this series. Victoria, the griffin, is great as a leading character. For one, it's nice to see something other than your standard vampire! Secondly, her paranormal abilities are unique and will allow this series to strut down new paths not yet covered in the world of paranormal fiction.
I can't wait to see the adventures continue - on paper and in film! For this series definitely has the making to break many stereotypes!
To start, there were many sentences that I read that I mentally had to fill in a word that was clearly forgotten, or there would be too many words that dropped its meaning to senseless unless I skipped over the mistake. Editing should have caught all those prior to publication, and it made me cringe each time I had to make that correction, which unfortunately happened throughout the entire book. It breaks my heart because it distracts so much from the story to the point it wouldn't feel right giving this review more than three stars.
Overall, if you can endure the downfalls of what I just described, the characters Calisto created are the saving grace for me to recommend this book. The dialogue between Tori and Mal is rich and shifts through many dials on the spectrum from brutal honesty to playful banter to ridiculous statements and innuendos that produced several moments of laughter I enjoyed.
I hope that with any future installments Calisto publishes within this universe that she cracks out the heavy editing and comes back swinging with a more polished novel for all to get addicted to!
Victoria is a Griffin, and she came home to find her boyfriend in the arms of another woman... in her bed. The sight sends her on a rampage. Of course, Mallory Stone is glad she's there when she saves his life. The two find they have more in common than they thought, since they're both extra-normals.
Of course, Mallory needs Victoria's help when his brother goes missing. No one can lie to a griffin. And they find the plot is deeper than they thought.
I love Victoria as a character because she's smart and sassy without being cliche or nasty. Griffins and dragons aren't the normal 'paranormal' book scene, and so that's fun as well. The plot is unique. The writing is tight. And you can't help but fall for the characters. It's a perfect blend!
The plot was exciting, the characters intriguing and the world building totally immersive.
I can't wait for a sequel or adjacent novel. Even though it would break my heart not to see more of these characters, just getting to see more of the Extranormal world would be gift enough.
