I didn't understand that this was a "romance" novel. With that we get some of the genre standards; heroine with raging hormones can't think straight, stubborn female acts out to avoid the protectiveness of males just to need saving.
Interesting characters and premise pulled down by stock romance elements. Just once I'd like to see a romance heroine able to function before the earth shattering orgasms from the soul mate.
First of all I want to say that I really loved the cover of this book. I liked the simplistic lines and bright colors. It was a significant reason for me choosing this book to read.
This storyline is not necessarily an "off the beaten path" tale but does incorporate a multitude of paranormal characters and an intertwining plot that keeps you intrigued and interested until the end of the story. A 25 year old female Private Investigator that has been raised as a "normal" child is finding out that her real roots are grounded in a multi-cultural background and as such is struggling with her newfound "powers"!
Yeah...being desired by almost every male in a half mile area could definitely be a "struggle"!
Even though raised as a "normal", Ivy had just recently escaped after being kidnapped by a powerful "kin" demon. A nasty little bugger that taught her (under duress) to make "guards" for paranormals to use as protective devices. He knew at 25 she would come into her real powers and wanted to keep her in Althea to combine her powers with his so he might gain majority control of his world. Ivy thwarted that plan by escaping to the "old world" before her maturity (and powers) kicked in but Lantham still haunts her dreams and seems to have a direct though weak connection to her mind. He will try anything to get her back to his realm.
Of course, there is a best friend, a hunky neighbor and another "potty mouth" hunky mentor that set the main stage for her dilemma.Read more ›
A sort of summary of events: This story is about Ivy, who thinks she is just a human private investigator. However, when she turns 25, things start to change, and she discovers she has been protected from the truth. She has the ability to identify creatures of the multiple species of kin. She had been held captive in Alethia (the magical otherworld where some pretty bad creatures live), and it has haunted her since her escape. The more she uncovers about her heritage, the crazier the story becomes. There are so many paranormal creatures in the story; vampires, werewolves, fae, demons, among several others. It's hard to give much more detail without giving things away, but following Ivy on her journey of self discovery is a trip that is fun to take. It is laced with some humorous moments, a bit of suspense, and quite intriguing magical elements.
My thoughts: The plot is pretty complex. This isn't a story I could quickly breeze through at first as I was trying to get my bearings on all the different creatures and figure out the story. There are a few layers to the plot, and even though it all comes together, it takes some time to get a handle on what was going on. The men are pretty tasty, and there are a few steamy scenes thrown in. Because Ivy has several suitors, you flip flop on who you want her to end up with, but the end is satisfying. It felt a little rushed at the end. It could have used a few smoother transitions or markers to explain how much time passed between events. The pace of the story makes you feel like it takes place within only two or three days, even though that isn't the case. I had some difficulty at the beginning sorting out who all the players were because there are so many to keep track of.Read more ›
Ivy is an amazing character. She's smart, spunky, and not quite human either which adds a few funny quirks to her personality that I found quite endearing. She comes from a long line of paranormals including demons and stayrs, which I found to be quite intriguing. Her lineage is explored as the story goes on, much of it being a mystery to Ivy in the beginning. As for the romantic arc, the men are lining up to be with her. At times I couldn't decide which one I wanted to her to wind up with. It's an exciting paranormal story that made me laugh as well as lose my breath. Can't wait to read more!
