Series Potential Ruined By Romantic Format
Although this debut started well, with likable main characters and a promising supernatural plot/world, everything was just too condensed and rushed. The moderately complex and convoluted story line, (which involves creating portals to call forth a master demon through death magic, obtaining gullible human assistance, and the demon's ultimate plan of revenge and take-over), should have been developed over the course of at least a two to three books. Instead, it's all crammed into one overstuffed/unconvincing novel to make room for the next romance on the list. Further, the main characters should have been given time to develop naturally. The electric chemistry between the primary characters is squandered and, then, obliterated by their premature union. There's simply no character realism when the heroine, witch Holly Carver, is in love with her human boyfriend one day, gets dumped by him the next, wantonly kisses a virtually unknown detective the following day and, then, discovers that she loves her vampire partner, Caravelli, on the fourth. Further, no one who loves another, (as Caravelli supposedly loves Holly), would so readily and blithely deprive that loved one of their free will. All available options would be checked-out first with all available experts. It's unfortunate that the author decided to write this as an episodic romantic series featuring different leads with each addition. Holly and Caravelli would have made an intriguing/magnetic pair as paranormal partners. I'm not interested in reading romance novels featuring different characters in every book, but I would have been interested in an ongoing supernatural/investigative series featuring Holly and Caravelli.
