Mild entertainment and a bit of brogue
on 2 February 2012
So once again I wish we could give half a star. Given the option I would have rated this book 3 and 1/2 stars rather than the full four as I've rated better books at 4 in the past (whilst I try to avoid 5's altogether without a very good reason, no such thing as perfection in most cases).
This is what I class as a light read. Its not particularly short, but neither is it especially long and its not the sort of novel that gives me pause for thought. That said, its not bad, but not great. I'll avoid the synopsis as there are multiple versions available already.
This story focuses on two characters, Liam, a fae-cat shifter and Kim a laywer working on a high profile case trying to prove the innocence of a shifter accused of murder. Both characters have their quirks, least of which is Liam's rather strong Irish brogue - slightly overdone at times (in my opinion at least). Kim is not really a very memorable character to me, having only read the novel in full yesterday I had a bit of trouble making her stand out in my mind... Liam does, though not a whole lot more, but Kim completely fizzled out after about an hour.
The characters are not particularly strong and this isn't the best written novel either, its straight forward, simple to read and tries to keep the plot running, though I felt that at times it meandered a little.
A decent read for a slow afternoon but nothing amazing. If you like paranormal and shifter romance novels go for it.
