What a fantastic start to this new series. It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a new urban fantasy series...this book was awesome with a really creative and interesting setup.
This is a complex world and Lily is at the heart of it. She's a succubus and in this world that falls under the fae...so she's part of Wynter's court. At the beginning of the book, she's a high paid prostitute. That allows her to feed her needs and offer a service, too. Tygur was a were shifter who was married, but he was killed by a vampire while at Lily's house. That's something that never should have happened because in this world, everyone wards against vampires using witch's wards. And the story unfolds from there. I don't want to discuss the specifics of the story line any more than that because I don't want to give any spoilers.
There's a huge cast of really diverse characters and I loved them all.
*Nick is a human/IT guy who lives next door to Lily
*Her other bff is Dani...a witch who used to be married to Greg, who was a politician...I have a feeling Greg will play more and more into the series.
*Archer is a chaos demon who's also a very rich PI
*Wynter is fae royalty...I loved the way she played into Lily's story
*The Souljacker is a former friend who tattooed the whole group of friends, but is now a crazed vampire who wants his art (their tattoos) back.
I really adored everything about this story. I read it during a super-busy time in my life and kept having to walk away from it. I hated that, but I finally got to sit down and finish it. Now I'm ready for the next one. I can't wait to see where this series goes from here.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
