About: Just typical. No love life to speak of for months, then all at once, every horny creature in the Otherworld wants to get in your pants…
Eugenie Markham is a powerful shaman who does a brisk trade banishing spirits and fey who cross into the mortal world. Mercenary, yes, but a girl’s got to eat. Her most recent case, however, is enough to ruin her appetite. Hired to find a teenager who has been taken to the Otherworld, Eugenie comes face to face with a startling prophecy–one that uncovers dark secrets about her past and claims that Eugenie’s first-born will threaten the future of the world as she knows it.
Now Eugenie is a hot target for every ambitious demon and Otherworldy ne’er-do-well, and the ones who don’t want to knock her up want her dead. Eugenie handles a Glock as smoothly as she wields a wand, but she needs some formidable allies for a job like this. She finds them in Dorian, a seductive fairy king with a taste for bondage, and Kiyo, a gorgeous shape-shifter who redefines animal attraction. But with enemies growing bolder and time running out, Eugenie realizes that the greatest danger is yet to come, and it lies in the dark powers that are stirring to life within her…
What I LOVED: Each character in this book was really unique. They all had individual personalities that did not necessarily conform to what the heroin would want them to be. I loved her minions, her screwed up love life (and lovers), and her family/friends (even those she did not think were friends).
What I LIKED: This book was more fun than I thought it was going to be. Having only read The Vampire Academy books by Richelle, I was surprised at the amount of snarky humor that was in this book. I laughed out loud several times. It was a fantastically fun read.
What I thought was SO-SO: I don’t like Eugenie’s name. Other than that nothing else was bad or so-so.
Why I gave it a 3 (or 3.5): I was really impressed with the humor, wit, and fantastic world that Richelle created. I am really enjoying stories of Faeries lately and this fit right into that genre. I would recommend this to any PNR or UF fan.
