Thankfully, even though this is a series the book has a proper ending. As the reader you know that there is more to come, but the current situation the characters were dealing with throughout the novel is at least concluded.
I loath spoiler reviews, so all I can really say is if you are looking for a supernatural light read, with sorcerers, demons, demon cars, a 6' tall blond who loves to say "Dude!", & a whole lot more, you are sure to enjoy the ride as much as I have.
The only major flaw for me was the instantaneous love between our paranormal shop owner Dru and her customer Greyson. Way too fast and underdeveloped. I was literally reading, the love happened and I checked the page count to make sure I had not lost a couple chapters. I really enjoyed the book but had to take a star off for that.
If you enjoy paranormal urban fantasy, this is a quick fun palate cleanser. The character of Rane made the book for me. She's a hoot.
The story starts with a frustrated sorceress named Dru, who runs a barely-profitable magic shop in Colorado. She has a self-absorbed boyfriend, a crazy female friend, and a sassy co-worker. Then a mysterious stranger walks in, looking for help and bringing trouble. There are some embarrassing moments of self-discovery, a road trip, and the potential end of the world. I won't say any more, other than the plot moves at a fairly relentless pace, with plenty of chases in a variety of circumstances.
The writing style is fresh, with plenty of up-to-date references, some gentle wry humor and very little swearing (which I appreciated). All the characters seem a little cliched and one-dimensional, from the sassy co-worker right through the tall dark handsome stranger, but there's enough going on that it's easy to forgive that.
I'm curious to see what happens next in the story and I'll look for a sequel. If a sequel doesn't appear, I'd feel pretty disappointed, but it wouldn't be the end of the world.
It's a fast-paced read, with short chapters, witty dialogue and characters that are both recognizable and easy to like. It's pretty standard urban fantasy fare, but with its Denver setting and the mixture of magic and normal combines to make this both fresh and fun. It's pretty much a book full of nonstop action and I have really enjoyed reading it! The ending makes me hope that a sequel is planned - I am definitely going to be keeping my eye out for it!
Okay, so the world doesn’t officially end – yet. (Sequel alert!) But the almost-apocalypse is so much fun. Quirky, likeable characters. Genuinely funny dialogue. Pure adventure. The book has just about everything you want!
At times, the story drags just a bit. I wanted action. The characters wanted to engage in patter. But then it picks up again and you’re racing against demonic forces just trying to save the world.
And there’s Hellbringer who (which) may be one of my favorite non-human characters ever!
A very clever story. I wish it had finished since I don’t want to wait for the next book, but I’ll read it when it’s out!
Subtle humor with just a little bit of snark to spice things up.
A fun, yet dark, fantasy romp with a bit of, necessary to the plot, romance.
Normally I hate when romance creeps into a book, but this is light and sweet
and doesn't detract from the story.
The characters are well fleshed out, with some really interesting characteristics.
You might feel like you know them by the end of the book.
The story has a great plot and some really good twists, but oh the ending...
The ending leaves the reader wanting more and this reader really hoping
that there is going to be a sequel.
Because I know a cliffhanger when I see one and that's how this story ends.
Still worth reading, it is a delightful story. I just want more!
