This is another case of why-the-hell-didn’t-i-read-this-earlier, I LOVED it, this is my first book by Katie MacAlister, but it is by no means going to be my last. This book is a fantastic mix of action; laugh out loud humour and a little bit of flaming hot sex.
What I liked most about this book was the characters especially Aisling and Jim her demon dog sidekick. Those two were so hilarious, I would read these books just for their snarky comments even if I hated everything else about it, which I didn’t. For a change the only character I wasn’t that sure about was Drake. He was okay, slightly annoying and over bearing but I normally get over that with the smexy hot guys in these books, but I think because this book didn’t really focus so much on Drake and Aisling and more on her trying to solve the murders we didn’t have a chance to be charmed by his annoying arrogant hero ways, hopefully that will change in the next book.
This book was told from first person POV, so we learnt everything as Aisling did, and I still found the new world of the Otherland a little confusing but then I think Aisling does as well, so maybe it is intentional? But I liked the general idea and I look forward to reading more about it in the next book. The plot as well, about half way through I had figured out who had done it, but I still enjoyed reading on, by then I was already hooked to the Aisling/Jim duo!
A great book, although the premise of the book isn’t particually original I loved the execution, this book is very much character based and I will read on as I loved Jim and Aislings personality’s.
