one. All in all a true pleasure to read.
However, I saw this one and said, "Griffin, huh? Hmm. Well, that's something you don't see a lot of." Ms. Calisto takes all the elements you love about paranormal/urban fantasies, and adds elements that haven't been used--or at least that haven't been used a lot.
Her writing style is easy to fall into. You can read this book with one surviving brain cell or a fully-rested mind. The plot arc is intriguing. The characters are real and likable. There's plenty of drama and a healthy dose of humor.
Great story! You're not going to regret picking this one up.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
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!
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!
