“It is a thrilling, edge of your seat ride!  And one of those few books in a year that I gobbled up whole, in one sitting.  I quite literally had a hard time putting it down for long.” ~ Under the Covers

Another sad day for me.  I wasn’t aware before I started reading this book that this would be the end of the series.  It’s bittersweet to see some of my favorite characters put on the shelf, but in POISON FRUIT, they went out with a bang!  As much as the greedy reader in me is not happy.

When we left Pemkowet last, there was a lot of turmoil in Daisy’s life.  Especially when it comes to her love life.  AUTUMN BONES brought a lot of developments in that area and it’s left Daisy a bit confused.  I admit I was too.  I had my “team” picked out but there were always things that made me wonder if they could overcome the rules of their separate species and be happy together.

So in POISON FRUIT Daisy has to deal with a lot more of that!  But let’s not forget that Daisy is Agent of Hel and pretty kickass herself.  She’s faced with multiple supernatural problems threatening the town of Pemkowet.  I admit I was thoroughly freaked out by the first one they faced.  Without spoiling what it is, the fact that someone can pretty much be scared to death in their sleep gave me all kinds of heebie jeebies.

But the plot in this book is a lot bigger than solving a simple supernatural mystery and keeping the town safe.  There are much larger supernatural forces at play in Pemkowet and they are trying to take over.  It is up to the Agent of Hel to stop them.  One thing that I’ved loved about this series is the author’s ability to weave in multiple complex storylines that give this series so much more depth and layers.  They each put a different part of our main characters to the test.

POISON FRUIT was no exception.  It is a thrilling, edge of your seat ride!  And one of those few books in a year that I gobbled up whole, in one sitting.  I quite literally had a hard time putting it down for long.

If you haven’t read this series yet, then I highly recommend you give it a go!  If you like your genres mixed a little, with some romance and humor to your urban fantasy, then this is for you.  If you like a heroine that is kickass and confident, but also very down to earth and relatable, then you will love Daisy as much as I did!  If you were a fan of the early Sookie Stackhouse books, then you will love Agent of Hel.

I am happy to see where the characters ended up.  As I said before, without knowing this was the end, I was surprised when I got to the end of the book and thought “Wait a second, this is the end of the series! NOOOOOOOOOOO”.  I could’ve read about Daisy’s adventures for many more books to come.  But I’m also happy to see this whole series have stayed and end on a really high note.  And I can’t wait to see what the authors does next.

I’m a 32 sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me) and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

    I’ve read the first two books, and I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. It’s sad to find out that this will be the last book, but I can’t wait to read it.
