My rating: 4 of 5 stars

(I received this book free in exchange for my honest review)
My Recommendation: ★★★★★★★★☆☆

This was a interesting book, and I did quite in enjoy it. It was fast pace, had some nice world building, witty banter, and low key action that was more PG then what you would have seen from Buffy. I feel like there was a lot of hype about Jenna's abilities, but when it was time to shine, the action for me fell short. I don't like that her spotlight was overshadowed.

Though I enjoyed this quick read, I do have some... concerns about one particular romance sub-plot, that not only made my eye twitch, I almost put the book down. Our MC is still minor in this book(17), and her other love interested is a warlock who's age isn't told, except for a vague reference to him being either 20 or 60... do you see where I have an issue? I don't min having a little love triangle, or competition, as it makes the story fun and cheesy; but that vague age, just isn't sitting right. I don't like it one bit. Maybe he is 20, as our MC will be 18 soon, ..... but not 60.. like no. I believe this needs to be addressed ASAP. Because even alluding to grooming, no matter the context, isn't okay.

Outside of that sub-plot, I liked the overall flow. There's originality to this world, and there are many mysteries that will keep me reading on. I need to know whats happened to MC's mom, why did ---> (sorry can't say that one as it will be a spoiler.)

I believe this story will be full of many more mysteries and creatures that our MC needs to fight and navigate. I'm looking forwards to hopefully more detail action, and highlighting Jenna's abilities and talents.

Overall this book is a fun,fast, lighthearted read that will having to wondering about the things that go bump in the night, and wondering if, maybe, just maybe, we have s similar underground organization acting and fighting mythical creatures right under our noses.

Happy Reading
