I’m confused about this book, I enjoyed it, but there was a lot going on and a lot of confusion over what the book was trying to be. On the one hand it’s an urban fantasy, set in our world, our time, on the other hand it’s an epic fantasy, with a great evil encroaching on the good guys that needs defeating, then there is the paranormal romance element. You see where I’m going with this? Too many genre elements squeezed into one book.
Siobhan has always been a little different to everyone else, she can see through lies to the truth of the matter, she’s always been able to do this and can tell if someone is lying regardless of if she has just met them or if she’s known them for years. When she was a young girl, a statue in her grandparents garden spoke to her, and she saw the dragon that lived within it. She has waited patiently for ‘Daisy’ to return.
Now she is back at the house having inherited it, and not only is Daisy returning but she is under the protection of an angel, a valkyrie, her brother and ex-boyfriend are swept up in the drama and she has an army of fallen angels and demons after her.
I really enjoyed the flow of the story, but as I’ve said I felt that the genres got really confused and with that the story lost it’s flow a few times and didn’t quite know where it was going. There were a couple of scenes that didn’t feel like they sat properly with the story as a whole and while I was swept up in the main story line I felt things kept being distracted.
Overall, I did enjoy this novel but felt it lacked a clarity in genre and story definition.
Sending a huge thanks to Erika Gardner and Silver Dagger Book Tours for the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.
