“Precinct 13″ by Tate Halloway

My husband recommended Precinct 13 by Tate Halloway to me. He’s friends with the author and liked the book. I was skeptical. The cover features a pretty woman in leather, and it’s billed as a paranormal romance. Then again, these aren’t things my husband usually reads either, so I gave them both the benefit of the doubt. After a slow start, I was completely drawn in to this tale of a young woman coroner in Pierre, South Dakota.

Aside. Did you know that it’s pronounced PEER, not Pee AIR?

Anyhoo. the heroine, Alex, has run away from a bad boyfriend and a bad situation, but seems to have landed right smack in a doozy of a new one. Her new job has some strange aspects, and she can’t quite let go of the old boyfriend, no matter what she promised to a phalanx of shrinks. Magic, dragons, fairies, trolls, and lots more. This was a fast, fun, funny romp of a read. It was meant to be the first in a series which, alas, didn’t get picked up, but on its own its still well worth it.

    I picked this book up on a whim at the library earlier this year and ended up loving it. It was a fast read and it was fun and I’m a little sad there won’t be any more books about these characters. (Great blog, by the way!)

    Thanks, Lark! She has a few other books out that my husband says were similar in tone/fun factors, but is currently between publishers.
