Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: It sort of has a Sookie Stackhouse vibe, but with less sex. I love the idea of a political supernatural organization, and I always enjoy reading how authors put their own spin on classic supernatural characters. Bair ends her storylines a bit more cleanly than I’d like, and though I know she’s planning more books in the series, I could have done with a bit more of a conclusion. Overall, I enjoyed the read, and I think you will as well.
Would I recommend it: Yeah, go for it.
About the book – from Goodreads: Freya Holm is smart, quick-witted, and an Alva—a paranormal species with the ability to fly. In a bid for a normal life outside of family expectations, she moved across the country. But within a few days of arriving in a small California town, she finds herself fighting over the last bag of lentils with an attractive but ill-tempered werewolf named David.
David Waterstone is desperate for normal, too. Recently banished from his pack, he finds himself struggling to stay sane. The presence of another supernatural power in his new town, especially one as inquisitive and lively as Freya, makes his struggle even harder.
When their new city gets besieged by an insane supernatural with a passion for Dante’s Inferno, Freya’s family sends in one of her old schoolmates. Alrik Isaksson has long been in love with Freya, but she can’t see beyond their hurtful history. Despite the tension, David, Alrik, and Freya must work together and use their intellect, supernatural powers, and sense of humor to survive the layers of Hell being created in their town by a maniac with a passion for literature.
