Plot in a nutshell
This story revolves around June Coffin, a Siren who’s accidentally had her twin brother caught by the evil scientist enemies because of her big mouth. After accidentally wiping the mind of a guy she’s just met, Micha, and having his wife killed to escape, she teams up with the paranormal alliance leader, Sam, and basically spends the rest of the book trying to save her brother from their evil clutches.
This book was a little hard to get into, there was a lot of mystery and I felt I had to work a little too hard to start with, I almost put it down, but in the end was glad I didn’t. The author’s take on the urban fantasy/paranormal romance genre was refreshing. The protagonist, June was not your usual ass-kicking chick, but instead, a little crude, allergic to everything, and covered in tattoos. She had the usual attitude and big mouth you’d expect the lead female to have in this genre, and the sex drive too, but I was still drawn to each character’s uniqueness and enjoyed the plot being a little something more political than just battle after battle. I really liked the individual characters and the raw edge the author gave a lot of them. The story was quirky at times, but well thought out. You can tell the author writes erotic fiction as her other genre, sometimes I found there was a little bit TMI in that respect, but I would read the next in the series.
Book Cover Review
Yes, the cover looks similar to a standard PR or UF book cover, but I feel as though the typography is a little undercooked. With so much bare background, there is room to play with the font to make it stand out more.
