I used to call my catch-up posts on Fridays, 3 Bullet Fridays, but that sounds kind of cold, so I’ve changed it to 3 Heart Fridays. It’s the post that talks about what I’m reading, thinking about and doing.
I’ve been reading a lot of this and that. One book I finished is J.C. McKenzies, Nevermore, the second book in her Raven Crawford trilogy.
Rundown waitress, part-time private investigator, and half-fae shifter, Raven Crawford, always gets the opposite of what she wants most. She works two jobs but can’t pay the bills. Her confrontation with Queen Lloth has unexpected and unfortunate consequences, and her love life is a hot mess.
With failure and disappointment honed to painful perfection, Raven’s life is riddled with complications, including her troublesome attraction to the lethal Lord of Shadows. When her latest case leads to a group hell-bent on destruction, she must decide who to trust. Will she choose wisely, or will she fail once again and become the next casualty in a war between the Mortal Realm and the Underworld?I
I loved the first book in this trilogy, Conspiracy of Ravens, and the second did not disappoint. J.C. McKenzie’s rich prose pulled me into an evocative world of shadows and light, where shifter Raven Crawford struggles to survive. The author’s trademark wit made me laugh, and the love story made me sigh. I highly recommend it for readers who like their fantasy dark. It’s a kick-ass urban fantasy.
I gave it 5 stars on Amazon, Goodreads and Bookbub.
Happy Thanksgiving. I am grateful, beyond words, to know you. My reading community is in my thoughts, my heart and my prayers.
