An easy quick enjoyable read.
Willow is a fairy who works for the Arcane ( the non-human police force). Her special fairy powers allow her to bake treats which can influence how others feel or how they act, and her treats are in hot demand.Some of these treats are so influential that they are sanctioned by the Arcane and you need a license to buy them.
After returning home from looking after her mum she finds she is under a vampire death threat. Her Arcane issued protector turns out to be her ex -boyfriend who has just broken her heart and she soon discovers has also turned into a vampire...
Good idea but bit basic in delivery.
The characters are great to even the bad guys stand out to you as they are written well. I especially loved Talisen not only because he is hot but how he was with Willow it was really sweet and I was happy with the way the book ended.
I did feel for David at the beginning but as the book goes on he made his bed and has to deal with how things play out.
Willow finds out about her brother and how he died, and there are a few surprises for her along the way. I do feel sorry for Willow it seems everyone is hiding stuff from her but she is strong and I think she always tries to see the good in people. The Blurb pretty much tells you what you need and I don't want to give any spoilers but this is a well written page turner of a book and I loved it.
As for her love interests... both of them really are poorly devised and indeed act more like teenagers than adults.. the only, and I do mean only, good character is the little dog.
Sorry.. just a very poor book all round.
· The alternative world where it's set
· The transforming Shih Tzu
· Interesting characters
I really enjoyed these concepts as I hadn't read an urban fantasy quite like it before (and I've read a lot!) and the love triangle kept me interested. However, as another reviewer hit th nail quite rightly on the head, the author didn't spend enough time developing her characters, everything just felt a little unfinished and there was a lack of finesse in her writing.
The main protaganist tries to come across self assured, having strong views on how her products are used and what is right and wrong, but unfortunately it comes across the opposite way. Appearing a little immature and flakey. Disappointedly, Willow gets lost amongst the other characters and I ended up being more interested in David and Talison. On a final note, the plot flits around too much so at times you may feel a little lost.
So if you want a quick, light read where you can overlook the flaws I would suggest this, but buy it in the Magic after dark bundle, as it's not worth paying £2+ for singularly.
To be honest I was a bit disappointed; the blurb casts our heroine, Willow Rhoswen as a part-time vampire hunter - I love strong, intelligent, capable, kick-ass female leads. In my opinion Willow is none of these things and I found myself hoping that she'd get bumped off & her best friend (a real kick-ass heroine IMHO) would take the role as main character in this book...
This book has earned 2 stars because I liked the plot twists; who was behind the death threat on Willow? Eadric Allcot powerful leader of the vampires friend or foe? and relationship quandary David or Talisen...
... but I won't be buying any more books in this series.
I found this book really slow reading for at least two thirds of the book before it picked up. Lots actually happened but it never grabbed me and took me for the ride.
The last third picked up, but i don't know if that was me just wanting to get to the end of the book.
Willow is a faerie with an affinity for living things. Her twin brother died a while ago about the same age as her father in the same place. Talisen was her brothers best friend and has flirted with her for years. He has become one of her best friends and has always been there for her.
Phoebe is her friend and roommate back in the city and is a witch who works with her at the Void. Phoebe keeps her alive.
Willow always forgets about her phone and her family has a history of dying early. Especially the first born males.
During this book Willow connects with an ex boyfriend that was human, but is now a vampire. Unfortunately all he told her about him is lies apart from the fact that he loved her. But he has been looking out for her since her brothers death by order of his father and sire. His sire has been looking out for her due to a family connection.
Willow is kidnapped by her aunt who is charge of the void but turned nasty. Willow has a small dog which turns into a wolf and helps protect her.
Secrets are learned about her family and others are revealed. The ending of the holds no cliff hangars making you want to wait for the next book in the series.
