My Review

I really enjoy a good paranormal story and this was another great example of a book that is packed full of the paranormal world. It has everything including Valkyre's, Vampires, Werewolves and even a Spider Fairy (which I loved). What more could I ask for…… except action, murder, mystery and lust.... It just screams fun!

Raven is fearless, she has had to deal with a lot of blood and death in all her years on earth, so she is willing to step up and protect those that she cares for. She has always done everything for herself and has her most trusted people behind her. I liked the good-evil person that she is and found her to be a bit witty at times. She is a strong character that has that take-no-crap-from-anyone attitude that the world fears, but she has a little soft spot for a human…

Duncan is a human and is an agent at RIPA, a special team that has been recruited to investigate paranormal crimes as the paranormal world is now public knowledge to the humans. He is a trustworthy person and is willing to do anything to get to the end result. The gruesome murders that are occurring has him wanting to know more about the mysterious Raven and her connection to each of the deaths. Once they met there was definite chemistry and neither of them knows what to do about it, so it was interesting to see how they both dealt with these emotions as they are both very forward people.

There are a lot of fun characters through this book and they all play great roles. One in particular that I liked was Tamerlane, who is Raven's twin brother and his sense of humour had me giggling .... He is always to the point! There are some shady characters as well and I was wondering if Raven could trust everyone around her, or whether she should be wearier.

The way the Author told this story was fabulous. She has taken some aspects of mythology and spun them to tell her own story as well as filling the gaps with other paranormal characters. Of course there is action, romance and betrayal, but it wouldn't be a good story without it!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
