Product Description

Product Description

Holidays are worse than a full moon for making people crazy. In Harborsmouth, where many of the residents are bloodsucking vampires or monstrous fae, the combination may prove deadly.

Ivy Granger, psychic private investigator, returns to the streets of Harborsmouth in this addition to the bestselling urban fantasy series.

Holidays are Hell, a point driven home when a certain demon attorney returns with information regarding a series of bloody murders. Five Harborsmouth residents have been killed and every victim has one thing in common--they are fae. Whoever is killing faeries must be stopped, but they only leave one clue behind--a piece of mistletoe floating in a pool of the victim's blood.

The holidays just got interesting. Too bad this case may drive Ivy mad before the New Year. Heck, she'll be lucky to survive Christmas.

Blood and Mistletoe is an Ivy Granger series novella.

BONUS: Blood and Mistletoe contains an Ivy Granger series Pronunciation Guide.

2.0 out of 5 stars Was expecting better 30 Aug 2013
By Me
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Ivy Granger's first book but found this novella a bit disappointing. E.J. Stevens seems to have lost some of her ease in telling the story. She uses certain aspects of the story too repetitively eg Ivy thinking of taking Marvin on a sweet shopping trip then not being able to needs more than a page to describe Ivy's thoughts on it even though she seems to only have one thought on the matter. The climactic fight does not convince nor does the lead up to it.
Not sure I want to read the next instalment.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! 28 Jun 2013
By Mandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received Blood and Mistletoe from the author in return for an honest review. Ivy Granger is back to solve a holiday crime. When Ivy's favorite demon Forneous shows up asking requesting she catch the killer targeting fae she can't say no even if it is working for the demon. While Ivy's boyfriend Ceff is out of town dealing with some negotiations between his people Ivy will have to reply on a young hunter and Jinx to catch the killer before it's too late. A quick scan of the files reveals that the killer has taken several different kinds of fae only things found at the scene mistletoe and blood. Forneous doesn't have much info so she heads to Kaye's shop hoping to find more information about what she's dealing with.

After looking over the list of fae that have gone missing she's sure someone is creating a fae Christmas tree and after talking to Kaye she learns that the person killing fae is using the mistletoe and blood to enhance their magic. Suddenly Marvin is missing and darkness is lurking around every corner will she be able to find Marvin, stop the killer and still make it to the winter solstice party?

I love Ivy she has issues but I think that's what makes her so unique. She has the ability to see things when she touches an object or person so she always wears gloves which I would do if I was her. She has built a great group of friends, from her best friend and business partner Jinx who happens to be human but can pack a mean tongue lashing to Kaye one of the most powerful witches in the area. Plus what's not to love about the super handsome Ceff the king of the Kelpie's she's dating.

Blood and Mistletoe is a novella in the Ivy Granger series that follows along after Shadow Sight but before Ghost light. A perfect fast paced short story filled with enough action, and suspense to keep you on your toes. I love the concept for the series, it's a normal city but with the paranormal community living together maybe not everyone knows about the paranormal but Ivy is well immersed in it. E.J. Stevens has created another brilliant story in the Ivy Granger series, her characters are easy to connect with and her plot intricate. I highly suggest anyone who likes an entertaining paranormal mystery should check it out. It's also a series that I know teens as well as adults will enjoy reading. I can't wait to start Ghost Light lucky me I have advance copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Review from Jason Patrick Crawford - 4.9/5 20 Jun 2013
By Jason P. Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Overall Rating - 4.9/5
Here is my breakdown:

Characters: 5/5 I love the characters in the Ivy Granger series: each has an important role to play in each story, from the main players of Ivy, Kaye, and Ceff to the "bit players" of Hob, Jinx, and Marvin the bridge troll. I wanted to know more about them from the first book, and this novella did not disappoint.

Storyline/Plot: 5/5 As a novella, this story was shorter than I am used to reading, but you wouldn't know it by what happened. Filled with exciting action and the compelling tastes of mystery flavored with the spice of folklore given Stevens' signature twist, the plotline kept me reading until the end and made me immediately wish for more to read.

Language/Flow: 5/5 As always, this is more a "did it bother me" category, and it did not. I enjoy Stevens' use of language and the references to various mythologies. As a student of mythology it tickles me whenever an author uses the creatures and myths appropriately, and Stevens did just that.

Spelling/Grammar: 4.9/5. Way better than necessary to keep me involved. I have read many books wherein the author/copyeditor had fallen down on the job in the grammar or spelling department, and the few errors I found in this story were not enough to disrupt my enjoyment of the story.

Overall: It is important to understand the background of Ivy Granger before stepping into this story; although Stevens does a good job of providing background information within the novella, it is a shorter work and there is not a whole lot of room for that. If you like paranormal fiction splashed with a bit of romance you will enjoy Blood and Mistletoe. Pick it up today!

4.0 out of 5 stars There's a new show in town. 30 Jan 2013
By Jennifer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
E.J. Stevens, author of She Smells the Dead, has got herself another hit with her novella and companion story to her Ivy Granger series, Blood and Mistletoe.
Ivy Granger and Jinx, Ivy's sidekick and BFF, are gearing up for the holidays when brimstone burns the nose-hairs again, signaling the demon lawyer, Forneus', return to Private Eye - never a good thing, especially when it involves a crazy fae muse trying to bring back the dead. On top of it, Ivy's Kelpie King boyfriend, Ceff, has to leave on business to attend to fae matters, and she has to dress up for Kaye's holiday bash. FHL. (That's Eff Her Life, y'all.)
This novella was entirely funny and great, and it has the signature "Ivy Granger snark" that I came to love so much in the first novel, Shadow Sight. Ivy has been tasked by Forneus with finding out why Seelie and Unseelie fae are being murdered, if for any other reason but to keep the wolf from the door and good coffee in her cup. You know, the important things. But she's genuinely interested in finding out why they are being murdered, which speaks to another side of her that's good and....fae.
The story is pretty creepy... a deranged fae is on a killing spree and is trying to do some sort of necromancer stuff? Weird. Ivy has her work cut out for her determining who and why. Oh yeah, and we get to experience more of her gift firsthand, as she touches things and dives into the memories of objects to catch the bastard.
Her relationship with Ceff at the end of Shadow Sight was delightful, but I do wish there had been more of it, or more of them together, in Blood and Mistletoe. Although....boy did I enjoy that ending! There is serious chemistry between them, and I really hope Stevens brings more of their relationship into focus in the following books.
All in all, paranormal fans rejoice, there's a new show series in town. And it's here to stay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally Dangerous :) 18 May 2013
By Maghon @ Happy Tails and Tales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a shorter version of an Ivy mystery. It's no less relevant, as I about had a heart attack in this one! Dude, the bad guy in here is seriously scary! Like, I am thinking about hiding in my closet for a little while when I think about it. *shivers* I actually think this one is even better than the first one. Only because this one was a little more emotional for me. When Ivy realizes that there's a crazy out and about killing Fae, she is seriously worried for her friends, as almost everyone is a supernatural of some sort, except for Jinx. I was really impressed with how this one played out. Plus, you get to see more of a character that had a very small role in the first book, but now I have a feeling will be a big part of this series in the future.

Jinx also plays a more hands on role, not only as business partner but for field work. I feel really bad when she goes to help Ivy and has to experience first hand some of the horrors of how Ivy's "gift" works. Marvin also becomes a major player. He's become the cutest thing ever. Even the Demon Forneus is growing on me, though I am still waiting for Jinx to skewer him! HA! I also think I will forever be staying away from Mistletoe! FOREVER! Jeez. I also think Ivy is growing, not only as a character, but she is embracing her "other" self, and she is trying. She's also getting a little more brave. I absolutely cannot wait for Ghost Light to come out soon! Everyone needs to be checking this cool new series out! AND.... I seriously hope that the ending... "it" happens! I know that's so vague, but just read it

5 Emotionally, mistletoe-loving, creeptastic PAWS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mad Hatter Reads Review Blood and Mistletoe 11 Jun 2013
By Mad Hatter Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received an e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

The Ivy Granger series just keeps getting better! While I enjoyed book 1, Shadow Sight, it had a couple of rough edges that were smoothed out in Blood and Mistletoe. And nice bonus...there was a pronunciation guide/dictionary for all those tricky Gaelic/fae names!

Blood and Mistletoe resumes Ivy's story a few months after book 1 ends and Ivy is already showing personal, professional and romantic growth which bodes well for the series overall. Not only is Ivy growing, but other characters as well like Jinx and Marvin are becoming more well rounded.

This is a quick Christmastime novella, but never fear, it does tell a complete story and gives a further glimpse into Ivy's world. It's a compact, fast-paced mystery with a touch of snark (you know I love snark).

All in all, Blood and Mistletoe is an excellent addition to the Ivy Granger series and I'm looking forward to continuing Ivy's adventure with Ghost Light in July 2013.
