Not the bloodsucking kind.
She feeds on emotion.
She is conflicted, however, because if she goes too far when "feeding" she can, literally, kill people by draining them dry.
That's a problem for her boyfriend Niall, the only other vampire like her in Edinburgh. He is much, much older than she is and in his long life he has, in fact, killed people while feeding on them. Although she refuses to do the same, Elle is in love with him despite the fact she abhors what he has done in the past.
Yes and it only gets better in "Witch and Famous" because Elle, an insurance investigator by day with a werewolf office assistant, is called upon to look into an apparent suicide by a rising young singer. While pursuing the investigation she enlists the aid of a young goblin girl, discovers that there is at least one other - previously unknown - vampire like her and Niall - a vamp with evil on her mind and the power to maybe change the face of Edinburgh. When Niall turns up missing, Elle is also trying desperately to find him.
This is the second book in a trilogy starring Elle, her friends, and enemies and it is a wonderful story, even for people like me who do not normally read paranormal novels. The characters are appealing, the setting - Edinburgh - is off the beaten path for most American readers, the dialogue is well presented and the narrative is smooth. Another plus: This is not book for "insiders," by which I mean those who are regular readers of novels about witches, warlocks and the like. As a result, it is a very accessible read for those of us who know little or nothing about spell casting and other witchy things.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it.
There has been a murder or was it? Elle is asked to look into it for the insurance company and something is not right. She feels that Niall might not be honest with her and all kinds of nasty thoughts are running loose in her head over trying to figure out what the love of her life might have done.
There is a bit of Elle growing into her powers and some serious trust issues with Niall but those pale in comparison to trying to figure out who is trying to kill her since there seems to be multiple possibilities.
This is a good fast read and enjoyable as the last one was or actually a bit more since this reads much like urban fantasy tinged with a dose of romance and angst. The action is good, the progression of the characters is good and as always there is a surprise at the end of the book that while not a cliffhanger does make you want to get the next one. 4.5 Stars and one of the more addicting and fast reads I have had in many months.
Elle is hired to determine whether a sudden death is a murder or a suicide. And that's pretty much all I can tell you without giving away any of the books secrets. Going to be a short review isn't it? I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series as there were many questions still to be answered, particularly regarding Elle's mother and her goblin friend, Siobhan.
Witch and Famous is well written. The characters are well developed and complicated, much like we humans. The story keeps you guessing and has a satisfying ending. I wasn't gasping for more when I finished it, but I will most certainly read the next in the series.
