Liz Stokes came across a guy in the bushes one night when she was heading home. No, he wasn’t stalking her or choking the chicken. Actually, he was beat up pretty good, so she took him home with her. Luckily Timothy Hamilton was a good guy and not some serial killer. They ended up being roommates and occasional lovers until the day he was murdered. And that’s when the life as she knows it gets tossed out on its ass and her new unbelievable, are you fucking kidding me, life begins.
With the murder of Timothy, Liz inherits his weird ring and his even weirder business partner and is suddenly thrown into a paranormal life she had zero idea existed. The learning curve is steep and Liz isn’t buying it even though she’s seeing this shit with her own two eyes. So, while I like Liz and her snarky attitude, I really can’t stand how dumb she is at times. Vincent is an asshole. But he’s supposed to be so it’s all good. Lol
The story could use a bit more editing, but it’s a great idea with a decent execution. For this first book there’s really only three main characters: Liz, Vincent, and some strange guy named Frederick “Bat” Batholomew. There is a Big Bad in the form of Lord William Ruthven, but I don’t yet know who or what he is or what he wants. I suspect he’ll play a bigger role in the next books. The story is suspenseful, humorous, and intriguing, so I’m looking forward to reading more.
