    As far as I m aware this is my first book by Keri Arthur Before I started, I checked out reviews of her other series and saw that many complained of the overly sexual content of the books This certainly wasn t the case with this book I like a balance in my urban fantasy Good to have some love interest, some sparky chemistry etc as long as it doesn t turn into PNR Not bowled over by this, but then I ve read a fair bit of high quality urban fantasy, so the bar I ve set is pretty high Main ch As far as I m aware this is my first book by Keri Arthur Before I started, I checked out reviews of her other series and saw that many complained of the overly sexual content of the books This certainly wasn t the case with this book I like a balance in my urban fantasy Good to have some love interest, some sparky chemistry etc as long as it doesn t turn into PNR Not bowled over by this, but then I ve read a fair bit of high quality urban fantasy, so the bar I ve set is pretty high Main character meh Belle familiar and sidekick too irritating to be meh Love interest werewolf tepid meh Information dumps A plot where we never properly meet the villain until the end It started fairly well but petered out I wasinterested in the countdown on my kindle telling how many minutes were left in the book

    First of all, I love Keri Arthur s books and I ll only read higher rated reviews I m irrational like that when it comes to her books Second, a note for the prudes or people disliking her attitude towards sex in her other books feel free to read this It isn t Riley Jenson Go for it, you re safe Lizzie Grace seems to be set in the same world as Ripple Creek Werewolf Werewolves live on reservations and they have their own rangers to deal with crimes In both series if somethingserious h First of all, I love Keri Arthur s books and I ll only read higher rated reviews I m irrational like that when it comes to her books Second, a note for the prudes or people disliking her attitude towards sex in her other books feel free to read this It isn t Riley Jenson Go for it, you re safe Lizzie Grace seems to be set in the same world as Ripple Creek Werewolf Werewolves live on reservations and they have their own rangers to deal with crimes In both series if somethingserious happens they have an obligation to notify the Interspecies Investigations Team or in Ripple Creek Werewolf duology they are called the Interspecies Investigations Squad There are no witches there, though Unfortunately, Keri Arthur stopped after the second book so we ll never know if a witch would have appeared at all.Twelve years ago, Lizzie Grace and her human familiar Belle a rare thing ran away from home after her sister got murdered She tried to save her Lizzie tells us her family hates her because she s one, a disappointment for them, and two, they blame her for the sister s death The thing is, the only source of that are Lizzie and Belle They open a cafe located on a werewolf reservation only to find out that they hate witches You get the reason later in the story It s not really resolved I m guessing that and Lizzie s family problem will be sorted out in later books All Lizzie s troubles start when a local lawyer hires her to find her runaway daughter The town is too small to offer huge opportunities for world building, but hints of witches and their hierarchy, vampires and the registrar, werewolves and their packs, and who knows what else is out there, are enough for me to really like this and expect a lot from the series There s even a promise of a romance After all, this is Keri Arthur and she has yet to disappoint me.As a first book in the series, it does its job quite well I could be biased, though

    I ve tried a lot of Keri Arthur s series in the years since Riley Jensen wrapped up None of them quite grabbed me like Riley s did I m happy to say I really enjoyed this one and am really looking forward to book 2 My only real complaint is a book about witch craft was a whole lot of describing sensations and odd feelings I think I enjoy thephysical nature of her werewolf centered series But happy to have found a new UF series none the less.

    I took a chance on this for reasons I don t recall I love when that works out.This is a standard non standard Urban Fantasy in that there are vampires and weres and magic but with at least a bit of a twist to keep it interesting In this case, the witches like our protagonist come in bloodlines and have power completely separate from but adjacent to psychic abilities like psychometry and telepathy and the like I liked that our main character isn t that strong of a witch and that she does h I took a chance on this for reasons I don t recall I love when that works out.This is a standard non standard Urban Fantasy in that there are vampires and weres and magic but with at least a bit of a twist to keep it interesting In this case, the witches like our protagonist come in bloodlines and have power completely separate from but adjacent to psychic abilities like psychometry and telepathy and the like I liked that our main character isn t that strong of a witch and that she does her best to make up for it on the psychic axis So she s not able to out gun any of the supers and has to move sideways if she wants to make progress Arthur handles this well and I liked the dynamic it brought into the story.Another twist she brought in is that Lizzie s familiar is another witch She does some careful tap dancing around the inherent slavery in such a position by making it a relationship of mutual trust and respect and one entered by both parties by choice Which made it very important that Belle be at least minimally engaging in her own right because she makes up nearly as much of the story as Lizzie does I really liked this very strong friendship and how they could partition out responsibilities without qualm and even on the fly, each listening to the other and acting as both brake and support in equal measure.The rest of the setting held together pretty well, too, with secondary characters that I enjoyed and interactions that were pretty fun Some of the challenges felt a little too easily overcome, and there was a time or two where I lost track what name went to which character, so that could have been stronger That said, the story was fast paced and I never lost track of the actual story or the important events and motivations.With the minor weaknesses and self pub problems which will get their own section below , this comes out a solid four stars.I ll also note up front that there was no perceptible steam in this one, though there are enough references to sex and sexual activities that I m not tagging this as chaste , either.A note about Self Pub In addition to relatively frequent copy editing issues, Arthur could also have used better chapter breaks As in, add a bunchchapters because the long ones she has now are completely inadequate to the purpose This is a nearly 340 page book with just 13 chapters and an epilogue I found myself on a couple occasions thinking I ll just get to a chapter break and then do the thing only to find myself wondering when that would finally be, already And then I started mapping out natural chapter break points in my head and that totally threw me out of the story though I acknowledge that s probably a weird reaction to the dearth of chapters Needless to say, there were a lot of natural chapter break points that weren t actual chapter breaks and that distracted me once I noticed it

    It s weird with this series that it doesn t offer much new in the way of UF, but it s still really good It didn t feel like I was reading the same old crap It s a world where witches, werewolves, and vampires are known about Werewolves live on reservations where they make up most of their own rules Witches seem to have the most power in the hierarchy of supernaturals I really liked Liz despite her tendency to run towards danger Although she constantly downplayed her powers, she is much str It s weird with this series that it doesn t offer much new in the way of UF, but it s still really good It didn t feel like I was reading the same old crap It s a world where witches, werewolves, and vampires are known about Werewolves live on reservations where they make up most of their own rules Witches seem to have the most power in the hierarchy of supernaturals I really liked Liz despite her tendency to run towards danger Although she constantly downplayed her powers, she is much stronger than she s willing to admit even to herself It appears that she is powerful but not in the usual way for a witch of her blood Aiden definitely becameappealing as the book went on He is a werewolf but it isn t the most defining thing about him The one thing I thought was odd in this was Liz and Belle s relationship They are familiars and friends, which gives them the ability to communicate telepathically It seems weird to me to think that someone else can read your thoughts all the time Since they had this ability, they would strike up conversation at any given time, even when they weren t anywhere near each other Sometimes it was cool but other times it felt awkward when they d randomly have a conversation while Liz was in the middle of doing something else
