Ravenous

This is the debut novel for author Sharon Ashwood.

Book Blurb:

Vampires, Werewolves, and other creatures have emerged from the shadows. And some of them have sinister THINGS on their minds...

Holly Carver is a witch who sometimes relies on the help of Alessandro Caravelli for her family's preternatural investigations business. Alessandro is the oldest and strongest vampire in Fairview - and he's made no secret of his desire for Holly. But while she aches to succumb to his suggestive wiles, she knows it would be an invitation to trouble.

Then Alessandro's queen, Omara, complicates matters when she turns up in Fairview to enlist his help. Sultry and manipulative, she is jealous of Alessandro's feelings for Holly, and demands he use Holly to trap Geneva - the most evil demon of all.

For a debut novel - it was a pretty good read. Plenty of supernatural critters running around - a little action and a little romance. I will admit - I did a little skimming - but ya'll know how I am - I don't want too much description of things that I feel aren't pertinent to the overall story.

That being said. I did enjoy this book enough to buy the next one. :)

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.

1 Star - Hated It
2 Stars - Didn't Like It
3 Stars - Liked It
4 Stars - Really Liked It
5 Stars - Loved It

I've never heard of this author, but then again 'Ravenous' is her debut and it sounds interesting. I'm off to investigate it on Amazon.
