“…one of the best paranormal worlds you’ll read about.”

To say this was one of my most anticipated reads of the year is an understatement. Fans of the Night Huntress series have been waiting for Ian to get his HEA for many years! And lets just say the wait was worth it! SHADES OF WICKED was everything I wanted Ian’s book to be and I am so excited that there’s more to come.
First of all, lets talk about Ian. Ruthless, cocky, confident, unashamed…I don’t know why I had a small fear that he would change when he fell in love. That is not the case. Ian is 100% himself with just the added benefit that we’re seeing him develop feelings for someone. And that someone couldn’t be a better match for him. Veritas was the big revelation for me in this book because we don’t really know much about her going into this and getting to know her was so much fun. She may be quickly taking over the spot for my favorite female in this series.
Another great example of why Jeaniene Frost is queen at straddling the lines between urban fantasy and paranormal romance. SHADES OF WICKED has the perfect balance between storyline, action, world building, character development, previous cast involvement and the most seductive romance. Ian and Veritas are sensual and sexy, but also intense in their purpose. Everything was mixed so well! And lets not forget the humor. Like I said, Ian is exactly what you would expect him to be and that includes the fact that he’s really funny. One minute you’re swooning, the next you’re scared and the next you’re laughing.
If there is one thing you should take way from this is that this is one of the best paranormal worlds you’ll read about. Ms. Frost creates storylines full of pulse-pounding action but also some of the best characters you’ll have the pleasure to read about. This new spin off only cements that fact even more for me. Ian and Veritas had me hooked from page one and addicted for more. The next installment can’t come soon enough.

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), run my husband's business from home 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 re-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.
