I can always rely on a good urban fantasy to make me excited to read again This book was no exception The only words I would really use to describe it are fun and fast paced The reason the book really shined though were the characters The story is centered around Dorina our resident dhampir half humanhalf vampire with a whole slew of issues Dhampirs in this world are a mostly hated and given their rarity Dorina is uite the outcast I've found that I really love stories where our main character feels like an outsider because it creates a nice internal struggle that goes along nicely with the external ones But that isn't to say that she spent the whole book wallowing in self pity In fact she did the exact opposite She takes no bullshit from anyone and her i give no fucks attitude was so fun to read about She was physically and mentally able which was a nice to surprise given that a lot of authors tend to forget about the mental strength Her dedication to her best friend Claire was so great because I love seeing strong friendships in books Her character was one of the best parts of this story and I definitely did not mind being stuck in her headLouis Cesare on the other hand might have seemed like an ass in the beginning of the book but his development was amazing His prejudice against dhampirs was understandable and I like that he wasn't immeadiatly sold on Dorina because it allowed for a organic and natural progression of their relationship Speaking of their relationship I had no complaints whatsoever It was a slow progression with Dory and Louis Cesare first hating and mistrusting eachother which made for some amazing banter between the two of them It developed into a grudging trust and finally left of a note of will they or won't they Their constant arguaments and stubborn personalities created the perfect amount of chemistry and I couldn't be happier They are definitely on my OTP listAnother relationship that I loved was the one between Dory and her estranged father Mircea I loved the layers of complexity that were found there and I really hope that the author decides to delve even deeper into this subject Mircea was such a complex character and not without his faults but Chance still managed to make him one of my favorite characters I'm excited to see how Dory's and Mircea's realtionship will develop in future books There's a mine of opportunity there and I hope that Chance will take advantage of itAnother honorable mention should also go out to Radu the weird but lovable uncle whose antics really served to lighten the mood The only complaint that I have for this book is the fact that sometimes the action scenes seemed a bit overfilled in such a way that I found it hard to follow what was going on at times Now this might just have been me and my abilities of concentration or lack thereof but I found that I would have to reread certain parts in order to completely understand what had happened Also please whenever a character has the same name as another popular character cough Dory from Finding Nemo cough try not to use it It got distracting at one point because everytime the name Dory was mentioned I would picture this Again this might just have annoyed me so this wasn't such a big deal To end on a positive note I also would like to point out the humour in this book I love when authors sneak in bits of humour in an otherwise dire situation I'm not dead I told her as distinctly as possible with the inside of my throat coated in dirt Water she gasped You need waterI needed a two month vacation on a beach but water would do Radu held up a hand I am sure there is a perfectly good reason why my niece is naked and tied to her bed I am also eually certain that I do not wish to hear itAll in all this was a fantastic start to a new UF series and I can't wait to dive into the other books WOW DAMN A NEW FAVORITE URBAN FANTASY SERIES RTC

E killingNow Dory's vampire father has come back into her life Her Uncle Dracula yes the Dracula infamous even among vampires for his cruelty and murderous ways has escaped his prison And her father wants Dory to work with gorgeous master vamp. I am sure there is a perfectly good reason why my niece is naked and tied to her bed I am also eually certain that I do not wish to hear itI've been reading the Cassie Palmer series for years but never had an urge to pick this side series up I've finally succumbed to temptation probably because I had it on my shelf forever and it popped up as a group read with Girls Guns and Grimoires While I liked the tone of Cassie's stories this one was also good in its own wayIt follows the standard fare with UF Girl with powers who is tough and has a stick up the butt about certain issues In this case Dory hates daddy dearest the vampire Mircea from the Cassie series vampires in general most other supes andwell almost just people in general She clearly doesn't have friends other than contacts she's willing to kill if things annoy her with the exception of one who is currently missing At first her attitude was abrasive and irritating but she grows on me as her personality thaws when faced with other people she starts warming up toBesides Mircea Louis Cesare is around from the Cassie series but we see completely different sides of his personality here At first he's an ass then he's rather whiny but then he's likable again There is a disconnect with the vampire Mircea a lack of warmth that shows some emotion at the end and if it weren't for knowing his feelings in the Cassie series I'd hate him along with Dory For now I think there's a lot of emotion left to reveal and stuff he's holding back from his daughterThe world building is uniue enough as it stays in the Cassie series but has Dory be a halfbreed between half vampire and half human sometimes consumed with berserker rages that block her memory and bring out her violence There's fae here too and for once I dig them usually I find them irritating or too cruel but I'm intrigued by the king and hope he comes up in the second book a few times Yummy stuffThe story isn't too rich as it's mainly a hunt and fight kind of gig Dory and Louis must work together and they don't actually solve much Who they're looking for ends up on their doorstep in one way or another anyway and the fights mainly come to them Dory isn't so badass that she doesn't get knocked around and it didn't irritate me because this put in a touch of realism Overall it was a decent Urban Fantasy opening Characters are likable enough but I'm not hooked on any of them The story was semi strong but nothing that stands out in memory Karen Chance writes well with dialogue and description and while her Cassie series is overdone with too much action and not enough pause here she calms down and dishes out normal sized servings of action between breaksIf you're a fan of the Cassie series then definitely pick this one up for a try You'll recognize some characters and style If you're new to Karen Chance I recommend picking up Cassie first since it's unusual and has a richer source of conflict for its first book
