Review
It is a fast-paced story, but that is what you expect of a novella. Karina is a very down-to-Earth person (I rather liked that) and she knows what every day of her life will be like – until her break-up and then it’s all fantasy from there. It is a fairly interesting read, with a little bit of violence, set in our modern world it is a fun take on creatures we take for granted in normal paranormal and fantasy books. It is rather raunchy, which almost detracts from the fantasy story-line (which in itself is rather cool). If you’re into the paranormal and love stories, this is a novella for you.
