  • You had me at bookstore and bar

    This book was so good I stayed up till one in the morning reading it and I am normally in bed by nine. I can’t wait for more books in this series I feel attached to all the people in it they are all very interesting. I just love a book with dragons,demons, witches, vampires And wear wolves. I wish I could go into the bookstore bar it sounds amazing.

  • Looking forward to the next tale.

    Through NetGalley, I received a free copy of THE SLAUGHTERED LAMB BOOKSTORE & BAR (Book 1 of the Sam Quinn Urban Fantasy Series) by Seana Kelly in exchange for an honest review. Imagine an alcohol-serving bookstore built into the side of a cliff; it’s underwater with a glass wall facing the surging water. The business has entries by air, land, and sea. Now imagine the proprietor built the business as refuge from her own kind; she survived being kidnapped, tortured, and raped only to be forever changed. In addition to having the physical, mental, and emotional scars from her trauma, Sam Quinn was infected with lycanthropy. When someone begins dropping the bodies of other female werewolves into the water by her bar, and when the deceased all bear the same scars as Sam’s, Sam realizes she never truly escaped her past. Sam, along with the assistance of a dragon or two, a couple of demons, and the city’s master vampire, seeks the answers that will help her stop the monster from her past before she again falls under his control. I liked this book and look forward to the next tale in the series. I recommend this book to fans of urban fantasy. Trigger warning - there is discussion of rape, and the main character is still suffering from the trauma of being raped. #TheSlaughteredLambBookstoreandBar #NetGalley

  • Slight undercurrent of romance

    Sam is a lone Wolf running a bookstore and bar. She’s been living in San Francisco for the past seven years following a savage attack that left her traumatised and forever changed. Sam bares scars both inside and out keeping others away but when dead women start turning up outside her bar she recognises familiar wounds that echo her own. Suddenly Sam is constantly being attacked both physically and indeed mentally. She may have kept others at bay but Clive the Vampire Master of the City won’t allow anyone to hurt the broken Wolf who has nursed herself back to health. The trouble is with suddenly so many attack’s just how many enemies does Sam really have and just what is so special about her ? I thoroughly enjoyed this book with its slight undercurrent of romance and really fun supporting characters. I do have a couple of quibbles though, firstly Clive whilst obviously confident and decisive just didn’t have that certain something that other Alpha heroes have. I loved that he would happily go as slow as possible to earn Sams trust but when I compared him to say Ilona Andrews Curran or even Thea Harrison’s Dragos he just didn’t feel as dynamic and powerful. My second niggle was just how often Sam was attacked and honestly I could feel myself rolling eyes thinking oh no not again ! Sam however is a joy to read about as she slowly embraces the fact that she can be fearsome and not just fearful. She has a good heart, can be snarky and witty but most of all she truly grows into her own skin as this story progresses which was a joy to read. I will say that the explanation about female Werewolves and how that affects Sam came pretty late in the book and felt as if the author had suddenly realised that she hadn’t explained it so needed to info drop because yes it would have worked better if readers knew that particular nugget much sooner. So all in all I did enjoy this story and there is closure of a sort here but Sam and Clive clearly still have battles to fight which I very much look forward to. If you enjoy urban fantasy or even paranormal romance then this book should certainly see you whiling away a few very happy hours reading , enjoy ! This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

  • Delicious Lamb

    Finding well written, new urban fantasy riddled with wit and containing something new, an imaginative twist that reflects reality with a wash of magic, is becoming more challenging for avid fantasy readers. I was delighted to discover Sam’s story and can’t wait to pounce on the next novel in this series. With a range of entertaining characters launching sharp edged dialogue back and forth, this story has something for everyone. I look forward to becoming a regular at The Slaughtered Lamb.

  • Can't wait for the next one

    This is the first book that I have read from this author and I was definitely impressed with its originality and strong storyline. This is the first book in the series and it will have you rushing to the pre-order button for the next one.
