The front cover and the sound of the book really reminded me of the Anita Blake series for some reason (when they were more plot focused) and I did love those books.
So because these books are a little more obscure I’ll leave the blurb here if you’re interested! 🙂 Skip ahead otherwise.
Chase The Dark by Annette Marie
Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: to become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. There are three obstacles in her way. The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to get Piper into bed and otherwise annoy the crap out of her. The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive–and scary. Did she mention scary? The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon. And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes. Now she’s on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She’s dead on her own, but there’s no one she can trust–no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons … See problems one and two.
Read it if you like: Paranormal romances, daemon/demonic creatures, kick-ass heroines.
5 / 5 Stars
- A wholesome version of the Anita Blake series more in writing style than actual plot. It’s also a paranormal romance but YA too. 🙂
- Plot-wise. I loved the dameon/demon world and I really want to pick up the rest of the books in the series so I can learn more about it.
- THE MYSTERY (obviously vague to avoid spoilers) But there were many parts to it, like why is Piper entrusted to look after the Sahar, are her family really who they say they are, Ash, etc.
- I liked the writing style, it was quick and to the point. However, I did find the first chapter a little slow but the rest of the book really made up for it 🙂
