  • Great Series Starter

    This was a great way to start a series. The characters and story line were well written and kept me reading from start to finish. I can't wait to see what happens next. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Love This New Series

    A Void of Magic is the first in a fantastic new series. Kennedy Rain is human, and her family runs a hotel located in the only known null zone, where vampires and werewolves become human again, and a stay there is highly sought after by the paranormals. After escaping the hotel to attend college, Kennedy is drawn back to cover for her parents in their absence. Of course nothing goes right and she is caught in the middle of a dispute between vampires and werewolves regarding a wedding, and then things become weird and dangerous as she uncovers questions about what her parents have been doing and encounters danger from unknown sources - and that’s on top of the vampires and werewolves giving her trouble. Kennedy is a strong and determined young woman, but facing up to powerful paranormal beings might be more than she can handle. She has to make up her mind whether she’ll leave everything behind for a normal life, or stay and embrace the life that is her heritage. The story ended with a number of questions unanswered and I can’t wait to read the next book to get those answers and see what happens next. My thanks to the author for an eARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • Loved the concept

    This is the first book in the Kennedy Rain series and its a very interesting setup . Kennedy is the heir to her family's hotel which oddly is the only place on Earth where those with supernatural abilities can feel human. Werewolves can escape the dangerous call of the moon and Vampires can once again enjoy their long, endless existence that can often lead them to madness or even having the desire to walk into the sunrise for example. A treaty has been in place for hundreds of years protecting the Rain family but now Kennedy's parents are on vacation and it looks like someone is dead set on taking the hotel out of the Rain families hands even if it means war ! I found it easy to sympathise with Kennedy as she's at college, trying to keep a roof over her head and have some semblance of a normal life. All whilst she's knows that eventually she will have to go back to run the hotel that means so much to the paranorms who vie to stay there. Kennedy knows how cut throat and dangerous these creatures can be and has no illusions about them anymore. With debts seemingly piling up out of nowhere and a wedding that would threaten the flimsy peace between the paranorms Kennedy blunders quite literally from one crisis to another all while knowing she cannot really trust anyone. At times I found Kennedy a bit annoying but I cannot fault her ability to keep going and I did like that she truly cared and refused to simply give in. I thought the situation (tiny spoiler) with a Vampire who seemed capable of feelings reminded me in many ways of Stefan from the Mercy Thompson series although I hasten to add that this book and the situation felt wholly unique. I found myself eagerly turning the pages and look forward to more but have to point out that as this ends there are no concrete answers so if you abhor cliff hanger endings you have been warned. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

  • A lovely introduction to a new series

    I lovingly call this book Kennedy Rain and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week. I’m not kidding she was going through it in this book. Kennedy is also much better than me because I would have burnt everything down and left after the first inconvenience. Okay but seriously, I loved this book. It was a great urban fantasy with an interesting concept. Kennedy Rain is human and the only heir to a hotel that houses paranormal creatures and sits on land that somehow nullifies their abilities. That means that this is the only place where vampires can work in sunlight and where werewolves can avoid shifting during a full moon. Her family has run this hotel for centuries and she knows that one day she will have to step into that role as well. The only problem is at 22 she doesn’t quite want to deal with the intricacies of paranormal politics especially after learning the hard way that guests don’t care about anything other than themselves. But now Kennedy’s parents are on vacation so she has to step in for a couple of days to help run things. It is at this point everything, including the plumbing, goes downhill for Kennedy. There’s so much more that I want to say but I can’t without risking spoilers but read this book it’s great! You will end up wanting to punch almost everyone at least once but it’s well written, the humour is great and the first book sets up for a great sequel (how do I request an arc for a book that probably hasn't been written as yet?) A couple problem I have with this book is that I’m still not sure how a family that’s been running this hotel for centuries is down to 3 members or how they have so many problems with the hotel but the latter seems to confuse Kennedy as well so I’m hoping that’s explained in a future book.

  • Explosive start to a great new series

    I requested an ARC based on the cover and the blurb and I was not disappointed. Warning, this is the first book in the series so although it is fast-paced with a lot going on, there is no resolution - there is definitely a To Be Continued ... Kennedy Rain's family own the Rain Hotel, it is situated in an area of null magic which means that paranormals staying at the hotel are not bound by their normal limitations (eg vampires can walk in the daylight, werewolves aren't forced to change at the full moon etc). Kennedy hates the hotel and the paranormal world, she's spent as much time as possible avoiding the hotel, but her parents have gone on holiday and asked her to look after things. Things are going badly, the paranormal staff hate her, the hotel is being inspected for the first time in living memory and Kennedy's arch-nemesis from school, Nora, the daughter of the werewolf Alpha has demanded that the Rain Hotel host her wedding, to the vampire leader's second-in-command - no way that's going to end well. Add in the werewolf second-in-command who isn't used to humans resisting his authority, parents who won't answer the phone, a werewolf Princess with entitlement issues and rising hostilities between the paranormals and Kennedy is fighting fire on all sides. I really enjoyed this, there are enough ambiguities about some of the paranormals to keep you guessing. I would love to read the second book in the series and look forward to it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
