Marissa is an old hand when it comes to dealing with things going awry but accidentally starting the apocalypse has to rate pretty high on the oops scale. An old foe emerges out of the shadows because, you know, life wasn’t hard enough. She needs her friends to help defeat them but they have their own dramas to deal with.
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Wynter, like the heroes of old, is undertaking an epic journey. She isn’t seeking a holy grail or trying to slay the Nemean lion (which is just as well as Hercules has already finished him off) but instead is trying to reform herself. She gains a mentor, allies, enemies, possible love interests and meets all sorts of weird and wonderful people along the way to becoming a successful muse.
Jessica McClain is special. She’s the only female werewolf in existence and her mere presence is enough to send the wolves into a frothing frenzy. A mercenary hunts her down but he’s hot so Jessica decides being rescued isn’t in her best interests. Cue some cheesy dialogue and the kind of plot we’ve seen time and time again.
Makenna aka Mac left her life as a seedy tabloid journalist behind to become North America’s only seer for SPI (a kind of Men in Black for supernatural creatures instead of aliens). A few gruesome murders sets the team off after a Grendel who intends to reveal the existence of supernatural creatures at Times Square’s New Years Eve celebrations.
Owl, international antiquities thief extraordinaire, lives by one motto – no supernatural jobs, ever. She unfortunately catches the attention of a red dragon called Mr Kurasawa who makes her an offer she can’t refuse. All she has to do is find a rare object that has been missing for 3000 years and in return, she gets to live. Simple, right?
Marissa Locks works for Grimm, the fairy godfather. Yep, only he isn’t exactly like the fairy godmother that usually pops up in fairytales as he’s more like a powerful Godfather who forces Marissa to work off her parents’ magical debt. One of Marissa’s stock in trade jobs is getting a prince to lust after her and then breaking his heart so a princess can pick up the pieces and get her happily ever after. Twelfth time however is not the charm and something goes terribly wrong. Grimm isn’t happy, the princess isn’t happy and Marissa has a limited time […]
Cassidy’s official job is proprietor of Trifles and Follies but unofficially she is one of the few that protect humans from magically charged artefacts. When items she knew were safe and sold to customers turn into ‘spookies’, she knows that something big and bad is is coming to Charleston.
This is a collection of loose stories about the death of ghost Rose Marshall. Rose might have died in 1952 but she has been hitchhiking the roads of America ever since. She has been immortalised in urban legends as ‘the girl in the diner’, ‘the phantom prom date’ and ‘the girl in the green silk gown’ but each of these stories only captures one facet of her personality.
Don’t mind me, I’ve just got a little something in my eye as I write this review…both eyes actually. Bidding farewell to Arcadia, Lon and the teenage delight that was Jupe was harder than I thought it would be. I am grateful though that Bennett finished the series on a high rather than a whimper. Our intrepid trio are hell-bent on defeating Arcadia’s mother, even though Jupe tries to keep his investigation under wraps. There’s magic, mayhem and a truckload of really sweet moments. What more could you want?
This court is now in session… When Natalya Stravinsky was abandoned by her lover, she fell apart and was cast out of her pack. Now she spends her days organising things at an antique market and avoiding the attention of the Long Island werewolves who want to kill her.
