Lizzie Grace, Book 1
Synopsis: In a world where magic and science sit side by side, and powerful witches are considered necessary aides for all governments, Lizzie Grace is something of an outlier. Though born into one the most powerful blue blood witch families, she wants nothing to do with either her past or her magic.
But when she and Belle, her human familiar and best friend, open a small cafe in the Faelan werewolf reservation, she quickly finds herself enmeshed in the hunt for a vampire intent on wreaking bloody havoc. It’s a hunt that soon becomes personal, and one that is going to take all her skills to survive–that’s if the werewolves, who hate all things witch, don’t get her first.
Review: I love Keri Arthur and if you know me, you know that I read all her novels with pleasure! So I was really curious to get into this new series!
So we discover Belle and Lizzie, two young witches who hide their powers while evolving in society. But then, their lives will be changed when a woman comes to the cafe asking for help. Indeed, her daughter has disappeared and she hopes that Lizzie can help her find her. Alas, too late, she will help this mother to find the killer. Unfortunately, this killer does not seem to be ordinary and finding him may well be much more dangerous than expected. Moreover, the rangers of the werewolves reserve do not want to have her in the paws and worse still they hate witches! And yet, Lizzie is destined to cross the road of Ranger O’Connor, who although very sexy, makes her very quickly understand that he does not like and does not trust her.
I really had a good time with this novel. The investigation was very well mastered and we are easily carried away by the plot. Lizzie is a suspicious young woman who does not manage to ignore the problems of others and although she knows that it can end badly for her, she does not hesitate to do everything. I really enjoyed seeing her determination and her weaknesses and it was a pleasure to learn a bit more about her past even though I’m really curious to know more. Her encounter with O’Connor is quite explosive but we understand that it is not very simple for him, even if he tries to put his doubts aside. I admit that this man has all of the alpha and I would love to learn more about him. (Well I want to learn more about all the characters so it does not help!). And there is Belle, Lizzie’s familiar. What would our heroine do without her? I wonder about that! Belle is very nice and sweet and although she is also determined, she really contrasts with the other characters.
You understand that I had a good time with this first novel. The main investigation ends but many points are initiated throughout the story and I look forward to learning more!
