Another Review: The Better Part of Darkness by Kelly Gay

The Better Part of Darkness (Charlie Madigan, #1)The Better Part of Darkness by Kelly Gay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Outstanding! Kelly Gay knows how to keep you turning pages and take your breath away, and always leaves you wanting more.

Charlie Madigan is a Detective filled with a strange new power after her death and subsequent revival. A single mom, partner, ex-wife, sister…many things pulling her in just as many directions. But when it’s all threatened, will she be able to overcome the darkness that threatens to devour her?

At first glance this book doesn’t seem much different than other UF titles on the market, yet once this book makes it’s way into the readers hands, it doesn’t want to leave. Well voiced with fleshed out characters this book deserves everyone one of the stars given. Amazing breakout novel, and hopefully there will be many more to come.

Blackout by Rob Thurman

Blackout (Cal Leandros, #6)Blackout by Rob Thurman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Outstanding! It’s rare for a book in a series top the first, but this did it. This book grabs you by the shirt collar, yanks you off your feet, drags you around, and doesn’t let go until you turn the last page. If you haven’t picked up this series yet, all of the books are worth it so you can read this one.

The series seems to get stronger as it goes along, and Thurman doesn’t miss a beat anywhere along the way. It’s an action movie where the only suspension of disbelief needed is that vampires, werewolves, mummies, and their ilk exist, we just don’t know about them. Cal & Niko, however, do, and they’re doing their best to keep us safe, as well as the creatures of the shadows, through action, snark, and the ability to come up with fabulous one liners for that kill shot.

Be forewarned, once you pick this book up, you can’t put it back down.
