“I think THE GATHERING would be perfect for fans of the Experiment in Terror series.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ll admit I decided to read this on a whim.  One, because I wanted to read some spooky reads and just look at that cover! It set the right tone for what I was looking for.  And two, I’ve wanted to try this author for some time and figured why not try something out of the box and not contemporary romance.

I think THE GATHERING would be perfect for fans of the Experiment in Terror series and maybe a cross with the TV show Midnight, Texas.  It has a little new adult feel although our main character is actually not a teenager.  For some reason in my mind I never saw her as her real age.  But it is certainly spooky and entertaining, be sure to read with the light on.

Something evil is coming for New Orleans.  Strange murders have been happening for years but something is definitely amping up the stakes this year. But it all revolves around supernatural beings being drawn to New Orleans because of it and Ivy is the key to stopping it.

Don’t worry, there’s a romance here.  And I was actually surprised because for a big part of this book I thought it would just read more like a horror story.  The romance element has mythology woven into it and I thought it was sweet and well done.  And by sweet I don’t mean not sexy because there’s quite a bit of that as well.

All in all, this is a perfect read for this time of year.  Something that will make you squirm a little and look behind your shoulder.  I’m glad I gave it a shot.

I’m a 30 something 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), 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.
