    Funny, sexy and action-packed

    Kate Kane (not Batwoman) is a London PI with a complex backstory. Her partner was killed and it seems she was responsible, one of her exes is a vampire, another is a Witch Queen, she swears she’ll never get involved with another vampire but never say never, eh? So when a werewolf is murdered and Kate is asked by a Vampire Prince (who would be a princess if she wasn’t a vampire, I guess) to investigate, she agrees and tries hard (not really) to resist her employer’s charms. I know it’s unfair but I’m always a little biased against lesfic books written by men. It’s not that they’re men per se, it’s more that I worry about the male gaze, whether it’s in books, movies or TV series. Plus there are so many good books written by women (most of whom are wlw), they’re usually my priority. So many books, so little time, you know? With this one, I was misled by the author’s name but it was a perfectly fun read anyway. I enjoyed the tone and the tongue-in-cheek humor. I liked the whole film noir and femme fatale feel of it. It was a bit like a Raymond Chandler novel but with vampires, witches and werewolves. And lesbians. It’s funny and sexy and action-packed. In the end, that’s all I care about. I am therefore totally looking forward to book 2. I received a copy from the publisher and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Disappointing

    I tried, I really did. I wanted to like this book. I did like the premise, but the reality of it was thoroughly disappointing. Part of that can be chalked up to world-building by way of info dumps. Then, there's the unlikable main character. I can and often do appreciate snark and wit, but Kate just wasn't likable, which could also be the reason I couldn't get on board with the romance. Either that, or there really was no chemistry. All of that aside, I think the biggest annoyance was all the borrowed elements. I sat this book aside a number of times and kept coming back to try again, but it finally reached a point that I was merely tallying up things I'd seen in other urban fantasy/paranormal stories. In the end, it felt like a mish-mash of so many other stories. If you're completely new to the genre and been living off the grid for some time, maybe you'll like this one better than I did. For me, I think it's safe to say that I won't be recommending this one, nor will I be continuing with the series.

    Fun! Queer! Loved it!

    I really enjoyed this story! I desperately want queer stories, and this one is fun! The story and characters don't take themselves too seriously, which makes for an enjoyable story that has personality, which is what I truly like. I definitely recommend! I personally like reviews that just regurgitate the plot, so you should definitely check it out for yourself!
