Hello all! Michelle is back! 😀 The last five four months of 2012 was busy for me indeed I started working full time and I had hardly no time for myself but I made a new years resolution to get back into blogging and reading even if it its something I do part time.
What is it about?
As a private investigator and consultant for the police, Alex has seen a lot of dark magic. But even though she’s on good terms with Death himself, nothing has prepared her for her latest case. Alex is investigating a high-profile murder when she’s attacked by the ghost she is raising – which should be impossible. Then, someone makes a serious attempt on her life, thwarted only by Death’s intervention. You know you’re having a bad day when Death is saving your life
To solve this case, Alex will have to team up with tough homicide detective Falin Andrews. Andrews seems to be hiding something, although it’s certainly not his dislike of Alex. Despite all that, Alex is going to need his help to navigate the tangled webs of real-world and paranormal politics, and to track down a killer wielding a magic so malevolent, it may cost Alex not just her life, but also her soul . . .
So the first book of the year I decided to go for an adult book, sticking with the normal theme of the paranormal. First of all we are introduced to the books primary character from the get-go who goes by the name Alexis. My first impression of Alex was that she was a strong-minded and head-strong character. Throughout the book we see Alex go through strong character development as she tackles many problems to get towards her main goal. The main love interest for Alex I was not keen on to be honest, he reminded me of an ex boyfriend that I used to date and towards the end of the story he just pissed me off so much I found my self wanting to pull my hair out. The book also takes a insight into Fae folklore which I really enjoyed. The writers overall writing style was fascinating which kept me hooked throughout. The story overall certainly provided me with entertainment with the mystery throughout.
Overall rating: 4/5
