In Lady of the Dead war is coming to the North American Night World. It’s up to Gwen to bring everyone together and stop it. She also has other problems: trying to calm her volatile mate.
I wanted to love this book, but alas, it fell short of my expectations. The plot is crowded – with subplots and details and the number of players made it difficult to keep straight.  Also, the overarching story is weak, which accentuates the ‘crammed’ feeling with characters and groups and subplots.
In fact, I wish the book had been separated into two books. I believe it would have made it easier to follow and reduced some of the ‘busyness’ and given readers something solid to hang onto.
I did like the storyline. It has a lot of potential and is unique. It mixes genres and draws in elements, which aren’t usually put together. I appreciate authors who take a risk and want them to deliver. I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

      Hi Jason,
      Thanks so much for stopping by. Towards to top, in the right hand sidebar is a place to sign up for my newsletter (it’s a purple button). Authors and Readers get some opportunities for some goodies when they sign up.

      Just under that is a button for following the blog on BlogLovin which is a type of RSS feed, I believe. I’m not a real techno geek. I just take baby steps on all the computer geeky stuff as I build my blog.
