    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
