From New York Times bestselling author Deanna Chase comes the third book in the Crescent City Fae series. Willow Rhoswen is finally coming to terms with the fact that Talisen-the healer she thought was the love of her life-has left town and is trying to move on when a rogue vampire poisons three of Allcot's guards. With his most trusted security team on the verge of death, the notorious Cryrique leader orders Willow to bring Talisen back to New Orleans before it's too late. But when she gets to her hometown of Eureka, California, Willow once again finds herself the target of her brother's murderer. And suddenly no one is who they seem. With spies, secrets, and undercover missions to navigate, Willow's determined to not only survive but to do whatever it takes to protect the ones she loves, all while hopefully getting her happily-ever-after.

My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

This book was quite very interesting. I mean I read it for seven days but during those seven days I could easily put the book down and not be agitated about leaving the characters behind this time. That for me is a red flag on that there must be something wrong with the book. Or at least me.

I mean this book is really good and well written but it just didn’t captivate me all that much. Which is something that I love to happen to me when I read a book. Now another thing that bugged me somewhat is the lack of Paige in this one. It’s mostly about Willow being stuck between two guys again but she makes the right choice for herself at the end which is always a good thing.

I gave this book a grateful four stars because I thought it was good and it did make me want to read it some more but not in the way that if I leave the book I have it stuck in my head wanting to read it some more. But then again all books can’t be that way I guess. I thought the ending for this book was very good and that my mom and I had a great idea about with how each “guy” family member before her and her twin brother got their power. Each generation had got like an expansion of that one power for vampires which would make sense for her little nephew. But yeah I am signing off now and I hope that you guys love this review! Please comment on here about it!!

About Deanna Chase

Deanna is a native Californian. After spending five years traveling in an RV, she and her husband moved into an adorable cottage in a small town outside of New Orleans. After about six months, Deanna was convinced their 1907 home was haunted. Late at night as she penned Haunted on Bourbon Street, she often heard footsteps throughout the old house. Luckily, the spirit appears to be harmless, as he/she has never done more than make a little noise and possibly smoke a few cigars. However, if the ghost ever shows up in a dream, you’ll be the first to hear of it. Smudge stick anyone?

When she isn’t writing, she is often goofing off with her husband in New Orleans, playing with her two shih tzu dogs, and making glass beads.

Finding the perfect dress can be hell... especially when a stranger tries to gun you down in broad daylight.
Void agent and magical baker extraordinaire, Willow Rhoswen has been anticipating her first date with Talisen Kavanagh since she was sixteen. After eight years of waiting, there are only two things that can stand in her way—an assassination attempt and a new game-changing drug.
Talisen's invented a new elixir that creates superhumans, ones that can rival vampire strength, and everyone wants it. Including the vampires. With Willow's life on the line, he makes a deal with the devil, while she's forced to accept the always-strings-attached protection from the most notorious vampire organization in New Orleans.
But when Talisen and his drug go missing, Willow will stop at nothing to find him, even if it means working with her vampire-ex, David. With souped-up humans, dangerous vampires, and more questions than answers, Willow has less than twenty-four hours to find him before everything changes forever.

My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

Another good book by Deanna Chase. This is another good book and I actually liked this one better. I mean Talisen and Willow are dating, I believe, don’t quote me on that.

I always liked books with faeries in them and this one is no exception. It is quite interesting especially with everything that we learned from the last book. We also find out more about Willow’s strange abilities that she got from her deceased twin brother along with the fact that she had a nephew as well.

I actually gave this book five stars because it was a much better book than the first one and that to me always seems to happen and this was once again no exception to that. And yeah it’s a good book. I will recommended it to anyone.

It’s tough being a faery in New Orleans, a city fraught with vampires… especially when their very existence drains your life-force.
Willow Rhoswen, owner of The Fated Cupcake and part-time vampire hunter for the Void is having a rough week. Four years after her twin brother’s mysterious death, Willow’s life is threatened and the director saddles her with a new partner—her ex-boyfriend, David. To her horror, he’s turned vamp, which causes her physical pain whenever she touches him… and any other specimen of the undead.
In order to save Willow’s life, David agrees to turn double agent against the most powerful vampire organization in New Orleans. Or so he says. And she’s convinced they know something about her brother’s death. Unsure where David’s loyalties lie, she turns to Talisen, her childhood crush, to help her solve the mystery.
Caught between two gorgeous men and a director who’ll stop at nothing to control Willow’s gifts, she’ll have to follow her instincts and learn who to trust. Otherwise, she risks losing more than just her life.

My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

I don’t read many books by Deanna Chase but this is a pretty good book. I only gave it a four stars because it was good but not great in my mind unlike some of the other books I have read. That and I don’t think I liked the ending of this one that is if I am remembering the same ending or not.

Anyways this book has a whole lot of fun stuff in it. I mean who would ever think that a faery would ever have once loved, maybe still does, a vampire. Granted yes he was human when they were dating but that’s beside the point. This book has a lot of fun curveballs that it throws at you when you think you have a clue on what is going on. I should know I have had to step back and rethink about it before continuing on as I go and cross off what I thought was real wasn’t.

This book is really good and I am happy that my mom told me about it.
