Posted January 18, 2012 by Kate in Liked It, Review / 0 Comments

Synopsis:As a private investigator specializing in paranormal problems, London Eyer thought she could handle working for the Sidhe. They couldn’t be any worse than vampires or werewolves or wizards, could they? Oh, how wrong she was. One ‘Touch’ of Sidhe magic and she was cursed. Her only chance to survive is to serve the creep that cursed her against the vicious Changelings out for his blood.

Review: This was a really fun short story, and the first in a series of three. Because it is a short story there is very little I can go into detail about without spoiling the whole thing for you, but I will do my best to discuss broad topics. 
London is a very interesting character to me, she is one of those humans who exist in the world of paranormal. While she is a human she is someone who has contacts with various paranormal beings, which as you can imagine results in all kinds of interesting situations. I like her because I like her inner dialogue, and even though she is a human and without any powers, she doesn’t back down from a fight and thinks on her feet. 
Selena was a character who wasn’t fully developed but I have a feeling will be back in future installments. Even though Selena isn’t a huge focal point in the story, you can tell from the short interactions that she is a bad ass and has a bit of a sassy streak in her. 
One thing I appreciate about this book is that is deals with the Fae, but acknowledges that the Fae can be a rather confusing group to understand. London don’t particularly deal with the Fae so she is entering into the unknown. I like that because it was a short story, the author didn’t go into a huge amount of detail because it would have just over taken the book. You get just enough information about the Fae to understand what you need to for the short story. 
Overall this is a solid short story, it is a quick read, but still interesting. It ends with just the right amount of cliff hanger, and has quality writing within. If you are looking for a short story to enjoy this would be a contender.
