For all you lads and lassies with shiny new ebook readers and bookstore gift cards, or those of you looking for some delicious new urban fantasy to read, I have done you a disservice.
I was swept up in the holiday spirit (and eating the deflated walls of my gingerbread house), and I utterly forgot to mention that Leigh Evans‘ THE TROUBLE WITH FATE, the first Mystwalker novel, was released just this week!
Folks, forgive my delay, and consider snatching this one up. I really, really enjoyed this book, especially the end. You know how I love a good ending.
Here’s the description:
My name is Hedi Peacock and I have a secret. I’m not human, and I have the pointy Fae ears and Were inner-bitch to prove it. As fairy tales go, my childhood was damn near perfect, all fur and magic until a werewolf killed my father and the Fae executed my mother. I’ve never forgiven either side. Especially Robson Trowbridge. He was a part-time werewolf, a full-time bastard, and the first and only boy I ever loved. That is, until he became the prime suspect in my father’s death…
Today I’m a half-breed barista working at a fancy coffee house, living with my loopy Aunt Lou and a temperamental amulet named Merry, and wondering where in the world I’m going in life. A pretty normal existence, considering. But when a pack of Weres decides to kidnap my aunt and force me to stealanother amulet, the only one who can help me is the last person I ever thought I’d turn to: Robson Trowbridge. And he’s as annoyingly beautiful as I remember. That’s the trouble with fate: Sometimes it barks. Other times it bites. And the rest of the time it just breaks your heart. Again…
If you’ve already read it, and you’re chomping at the bit for more, I have it on good authority (i.e., Leigh Evans’ web site) that the second book in the Mystwalker series, The Thing About Weres, will be released on July 30, 2013.
