Blurb: It’s tough being a faery in New Orleans, a city fraught with vampires… especially when their very existence drains your life-force.
Willow Rhoswen, owner of The Fated Cupcake and part-time vampire hunter for the Void is having a rough week. Four years after her twin brother’s mysterious death, Willow’s life is threatened and the director saddles her with a new partner—her ex-boyfriend, David. To her horror, he’s turned vamp, which causes her physical pain whenever she touches him… and any other specimen of the undead.
In order to save Willow’s life, David agrees to turn double agent against the most powerful vampire organization in New Orleans. Or so he says. And she’s convinced they know something about her brother’s death. Unsure where David’s loyalties lie, she turns to Talisen, her childhood crush, to help her solve the mystery.
Caught between two gorgeous men and a director who’ll stop at nothing to control Willow’s gifts, she’ll have to follow her instincts and learn who to trust. Otherwise, she risks losing more than just her life.
Thoughts: Willow Rhoswen is a faery with a very special ability - she can sense vampires. Unfortunately, this has brought her to the attention of some of the wrong people and she finds her life is in danger. She becomes caught up in a complex series of events that begin to unfold, giving her some long sought for answers. But is she prepared for the answers she finds?
This was an excellent book! With a well thought out storyline, likeable and charismatic characters, non-stop action, and a love triangle, what more could you ask for? My attention was caught from beginning to end, with the writer weaving a fascinating tale that I couldn't put down! My only complaint was when the book actually ended, because I want more....Can't wait for the next installment in this series! I have already looked into other books by this excellent author, and I am anxious to start her Jade Calhoun Series!
Book Two of the Crescent City Fae series is set for release November 2013.
