    I like Ivy

    I like Ivy. She struggles with debilitating visions that are cause by touch. Even in super hot weather, gloves are a must. She doesn't hide, she has a job as a 'visionary' private eye. No spoilers, it's all in the blurb. She is also bold, facing down demons, vampires (the gruesome version not the sparkly version), and other horrid of the supernatural world. She's loyal to her friends and has a compassionate heart. She is also far too intelligent not to understand her nature. I knew it well before the big revelation and she should have too. I also the build up to her the romantic interest needed more detail, but I will say, I like the choice. A whole new take on 'shifter' romance. That's as far as I can go with out spoilers. I'll definitely be picking up the next volume.

    Light fey read.

    Ivy has a new client appointment. One her over competent assistant can't remember the name of. When he shows, Ivy learns he's a Demon. That's why Jinx couldn't remember his name. The case Ivy grudgingly, but willingly takes when she learns it will help save her town and the people in it, is to find the kidnapped Kelpie Kings Bridle and return it to the Kelpie. Then the Kelpie will stop the attacks of a dangerous and deadly sea fey that is behind all the bad happening in town. The case brings Ivy and many more to a battle between fey they never thought would come. We get an introduction that is done in a tour fashion. The voice is the tour guide and introduces us to the world, and Ivy who is a detective in Harborsmouth. Telling us there is many strange creatures here, but humans can't see them. The first chapter starts in as Ivy, which you don't realize it's her, at the age of six upset over her missing cat. Then how she gets a vision as to what happened to her beloved cat. This is the starts of how Ivy came to her powers and who she is. And how she met her best friend and business assistant, Jinx. The story is in first person POV from Ivy. There is a lot of set up with Ivy's history and ability then meeting Jinx and setting up the company. We didn't get to the case until the sixth chapter. As Ivy combs the town and those that could help her save the city from emanate death, we come across many different fey here. With each character we meet, we get a story about them and their kind. Feels like it slows the actual story for me. There is lots of information drops throughout the book. Lots of details and world setting in chapter one. It's a neat world but slow for me getting to the case. I know we need to meet everyone but...I was ready to move on. It feels like a tour though the city, Maybe I'm an assistant tagging along for her first day, with Ivy as she tells me about different places and fey and their story as we go. The voice (reader) has done different tones and voices for Ivy, Jinx, and other characters through out the story. It makes it easy to differentiate them all while reading. The reader, or maybe word choices of the author, makes me feel like the story is a bit for older young adults. The story was a relaxed story and Ivy sounds young. I think it was the voice talent with this story, but I didn't feel my normal kick butt feel for Ivy. I felt like the voice was trying to make to much fun into the story. There were little jokes, but trying to make the story too lighthearted. The story came across as a mid-line feel. This is a vast world created. There are creatures from Brownies, Demons, Trolls, and Witches (or hunters) to much more. Vampires, Kelpie, Selkie, and rare fey of the ocean and land. When we get into action and doing things with Ivy, I'm right there with her. I'm looking and wondering what will happen. I think I'll read the next book, not listen to it. I like that there are many magical beings here in the world. It opens this detective series up to many things. By the end I think Ivy has grown. I'd be curious to see more of where she goes.

    Shadow Sight

    I usually only read romantic fiction when things go to shit in my life. This was no exception. However, this book was pretty special, the odd spelling and grammar mistake notwithstanding - like I should talk... This book was really enjoyable. A supernatural theme and lots of momentum. I'll definitely be reading more from this author. Plus, a really refreshing side bonus - her photograph looks just like I would imagine an author of this type of fiction to look...the whole package.

    An excellent beginning, for a series.

    A funny, yet at times, a completely disturbing book. I think most people wouldn't describe it like that, but I found it funny at times. The sayings that the Author comes up with, and the way she describes things, I found quite funny. The Ivy Granger books are in a class all there own. I've only read two so far, but they've both been excellent, definitely worth reading. Paranormal, mystery, comedy, combined with disgusting and terrifying creatures. Ivy and her few friends Jinx (her business partner/roommate/best friend, a human) Madame Kaye (friend/helps Ivy with magic, she's a witch) Hob (became friends over the years, with the grouchy little brownie, a type of fae). These are her main friends from the beginning. Then she also becomes friends with Marvin (a young, albeit very stinky, sweet, Troll). Who is homeless and lost his father, but Kaye is helping him. Ivy and her friends are close, help each other with anything and reliable to each other. Ivy having always been the odd ball growing up, because of her power (psychometry, the supernatural ability to see events, usually traumatic, in an objects history, or skin too skin contact. She can also see through glamour, something the supernatural beings use to make themselves, or things look different). Ivy always wears gloves to prevent getting, horrific visions. She has seen way to many horrible things in her life. Now she only uses that gift if she absolutely has to, for solving a case. Ivy suffers terrible nightmares, because of all the things she's witnessed. This book was very good. The characters are endearing, relatable, real people (except the monsters). I was completely engrossed in this book once I started it. I mean no sleep, don't talk to me, dam it I have to pee again, engrossed. There is always something happening, or something they are preparing for, something that is going to happen. There's no chance, for your mind to wonder, there's to much going on. Ivy is much braver than she thinks, and does a lot of scary things, in the name of saving the little seaside community, where she lives. Ivy and her friends, along with some unsuspected others, go along way to try to save the community and humans in it. In the end Ivy finds herself with more friends, and finds out a huge secret about herself. She also learns things about her parents, that she would have never guessed. Of course a lot more happens in the book, but I don't want to give anything away. Oh, definitely worth reading. Fast paced, something is always happening. It's fun yet has scary creatures, along with the old favorite creatures. Has it's share of blood/Gore, but the blood and Gore is not constant. Also, shows the great easy flowing friendships, between Ivy and her friends. Although, at one point, something happened with Ivy, by one of her friends. Ivy was out of it, and starting to use a lot of different sayings and this friend did something (I know that is vague, but again I don't want to give anything away). I'm curious to see if anything comes of that. Heck, I'm curious about a lot of things, that's why I'm going to start the next book. I was given a copy of this book to read, I left a review on my own.

    Wonderful

    This book is thoroughly enjoyable if you like fairy tales for adults. I couldn't put it down. The heroine and other characters are well-drawn and believable within the world E.J.Stevens has constructed.
