    Highly recommended

    It's the second book I read by this author and I found it entertaining and unputdownable. I loved the likeable and well written cast of characters, the engrossing plot full of twists and turns, and the well thought world building. i can't wait to read another book by this author. Highly recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    4.5 stars- Great ending to an excellent series

    I knew the conclusion to the Not Dead Yet series would be amazing and Graveyard Shift was certainly that. This is one of those series that hits on so many of my favorite things- a fun relationship between main characters, intriguing storylines, palpable emotion, fantastic secondary characters, and banter that makes me smile often. Graveyard Shift also held plenty of surprises- most made for an exciting story, others led to some heartbreak, but I cannot deny that this book held my full attention and solidified the series as one of my top faves. Graveyard Shift definitely had that capping off feeling from the outset, rounding out storylines and characters. I loved seeing Wes’s full transformation in this book. Though he’s always been fun and sassy with a quiet strength, it was even better when he realized his potential and embraced it. Likewise, I enjoyed seeing Wes and Hudson’s relationship further solidified throughout Graveyard Shift. Their connection felt deeper as the story progressed, and it was reassuring to see their bond hold true despite the hardships their little family of friends and loved ones faced. And man were the action and unexpected turns on point in this one, leaving my heart lurching a number of times and wondering how this could be the end of such a great series. If you’re in need of the next binge-worthy series, I highly recommend picking up Not Dead Yet. Meanwhile, I’ll hope to see these characters pop up in a different series in the future so I don’t have to say goodbye just yet. *eARC received via Netgalley.

    Graveyard Shift

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley and from A Novel take PR. I voluntarily reviewed it. I am really enjoying this series so far and couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy of book 3. This book continues the adventures of ghost/ god Wes Cooper and his partner Hudson. There is again plenty of suspense, paranormal stuff that’s going on and a bunch of twists and reveals. It kept my attention from start to finish and I really enjoyed this latest installment. I like how in this series the book starts with a simple case, that then turns out not to be as simple as that. Then there are multiple other threads that pop up as well and by the end of the book they often all tie together in someway. This book goes that way as well, there are quite some things going on and while I expect these would tie together it takes a while before things fall on their place. I wanted to know what was going on with the shifters dying and the new vampires that seemed to pop-up everywhere. It was fun to try and piece things together and follow along as the characters revealed more clues. There’s some death and sadness going on as usual and there are some tough things the characters have to go through, but also enough happy moments. There is a twist that seemed a little too convenient, but I did like how everything got resolved in the end. There are some twists I liked, like seeing Wes grow into his god powers. I also liked most of the new side characters we meet in this book and the new things we learn paranormal wise. This book centers around Wes and Hudson and the tight group of friends surrounding them. I love reading about them and how they stick together and are there for one another. I like reading about these characters and seeing them all develop in each book and in most books they add another character to the group, which is fun to see. I like seeing how they all interact with one another and are there for each other. Romance wise I was really happy how this book played out. In previous books they had some big bumps romance wise to overcome and in this book we really see Wes and Hudson as partners. They stick together and forgive each other when things don’t go according to plan. They really are there for each other in all ways. And I enjoyed seeing them be so close. The make for a great couple and this book really shows their depth of love for each other. This book again expands on the world building too. We slowly learn what it means for Wes to be a god and how he deals with this. And there’s more about his powers too. There is also more about shifters that we learn in this book as there are some shifter side characters that are important for the plot. As well as some additional information about vampires and other paranormal creatures. I like how with every book the world expands and feels even more real. I like learning more about this world and the supernatural creatures in it. To summarize: This is another great read in this series. I liked the suspense plot line with the issues that seem unconnected at first, but them slowly turn into one big issue. It was interesting to find out who’s behind it, although I wasn’t fully happy with the who plot twist. There are some great developments in this book, some happy and hopeful moments, but also some sad parts. I liked seeing Wes grow into his role as a god. And I also liked how Wes and Hudson really are a team in this book, there are no major obstacles when it comes to their romance and I liked seeing them together and it it’s clear how much they love each other. There are some new interesting side characters in this book and the world building gets expanded a bit as well. I really enjoy this series and reading about this tight knit group of characters and I am looking forward to the next book.

    A good read

    Things are going fairly well for self-described not-ghost and former “recovery specialist” (read: thief) Wes Cooper. He’s living with his vampire boyfriend, Hudson, in a swanky neighbourhood in Toronto, they’re surrounded by their little found family and their PI business is going well. Wes is settling in to being a god, though he’s still not sure what he’s supposed to be the god of. Too bad the rest of the world hasn’t gotten the memo - vampire kills are up, shifters are dying and paranormal law enforcement is sniffing around after Hudson’s niece. Oh, and their snooty neighbours are being all passive-aggressive. Typical. This series is a reliably fun read. There’s plenty of action, a decently-fleshed-out supernatural world and solid protagonists and supporting characters - though I’ll admit to sometimes wanting to give Hudson a kick in the butt. And it’s comfortably Canadian (though the audiobook narrator for the series mispronounces some things), but doesn’t overwhelm with stereotypes. One thing I do particularly like about this series is how Wes’s sexuality is handled. He self-identifies as being on the asexual spectrum, but does sometimes experience sexual attraction, which is a nuance not often tackled in romance. It perhaps gets a touch more explanation than needed throughout the series, but not to the point where I feel the author’s just trying to call attention to having given the character such an infrequent orientation. So, to sum it up, this is not going to win prizes for literature or anything, but fans of queer urban fantasy won’t be disappointed. **** The standard disclaimer - I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

    My favourite Scooby gang is back! A surprisingly e

    I LOVED this book! First of all, if you haven’t read Burke’s other books in this series… please do! You won’t be disappointed. This is book three of the Not Dead Yet series. SPOILERS FROM NOW ON! At the center of the series is newly annoint3ed God, Wes. He has absorbed a huge amount of magic and is becoming accustomed to the way it feels. He’s still sorting out “what” he’s a God of… how his powers affect his place in the world. And there are a lot of things he definitely doesn’t know… can he be killed? What happens if he lets go? Wes’ partner at work and in life is Hudson. Hudson is a fantastic character. As open and expressive as Wes is… Hudson is a man of few words. Burke does a fantastic job of creating characters that are magnetic and fascinating. The dynamic between Wes and Hudson is so intriguing. They are dedicated to one another but both of them have been through extensive changes since they met for the very first time. It’s not just about Hudson becoming a vampire and Wes becoming… dead. It’s so much more than that. These two characters have grown and changed throughout this series and I have loved every minute of it. These two are devoted to one another… and don’t sway from that even when things get challenging. I love that about them. I was surprised at how emotional I got while reading this story. One of the supporting characters is killed in an epic battle, and it was the reaction of the other characters that got to me. Evan… the newest vampire who lives with chronic depression is such an amazing character. The way he experiences the loss of his friend is heart-breaking. There’s a lot going on in this novel… and I loved all of it. There’s a mystery, there is a lot of action, there are really nasty bad guys… and it’s not always clear who IS a bad guy. There are also a lot of fantastic relationships and friendships and I would love to read more about these characters!
