Hey Fellow Bookworms, I have a new book review for those who love Urban Fantasy stories… I used to read a ton a while back… I was particularly fond of The Night Huntress series, but I digress.
This one has that classic vibe but with a twist that makes it refreshing. I did have a few issues, but I don’t think it takes that much out of enjoying the book.. and It’s something that maybe any of you won’t find a bother… Let’s get to it:
Mirrorfal ( Ash and Blue Book 1) by Stormy Sto Helit
The Found Family trope is one of my favorites because it is something we can all relate to .. and this book has it in spades. Our lead girl does have an unusual family.
The world. It’s a great set up for an urban fantasy… The agency that deals with magical shenanigans and all that surrounds them.. it wasn’t a carbon copy of so many others and I appreciate that.
The excellent presentation… is very well done. It feels true and not just a tick in a box – which generally upsets me.
Now let’s move on to the issues that bothered me:
The main character, I’m not sure if it was how she was introduced, but I did not like her. We do get more about her background and motivation, why she acts the way she does as we progress in the story but … at that point, I just didn’t care anymore… The rest of the characters were saviours for me.
Overall, it was an entertaining read and I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys Urban fantasy and movies like Men In Black and Constantine… It has that vibe.
