Overview


A Monster Haven Story, book four

In her role as Aegis, Zoey Donovan has rescued and cared for hundreds of monsters and mythical creatures. Now humans are the ones in need of her help. Someone with a personal vendetta against the Board of Hidden Affairs has kidnapped all the other Aegises in the country—including Zoey's mother.

With the Hidden government in shambles and a string of deadly clues to follow, Zoey and her reaper boyfriend set out on a cross-country chase to stop the kidnapper from killing the captured Aegises. Along the way, they pick up a miniature golem who's on a quest to find his humanity…and may be the key to solving the grisly clues.

If Zoey succeeds in defeating this new evil, she'll finally be reunited with the mother she lost over twenty years ago. But if she fails, she'll become the final victim.

    I was introduced to the Monster Haven books on another blog a co

    I was introduced to the Monster Haven books on another blog a couple of years ago. I loved the look of the covers and the idea behind the books. When I won a copy of the first book, I was thrilled, but put off reading it. I continued to oooh and ahhh over each new book cover and add them to my TBR pile.  I even introduced them to my sister and she read hers, while mine sat, still unread.  That changed though when I saw that Golem in My Glovebox was on Netgalley.  Getting this book was the perfect reason to finally read the series. So glad I did.

    After the downfall of The Collector (Fairies in My Fireplace), the Aegis were stolen away before they could be freed from their bonds. Zoey was left with a quickly penned childish dare, no closer to having a true reunion with her mother. Now as the only Aeigs left, it becomes Zoey's responsibility to protect not only the Hidden from humans, but also the humans from the Hidden.  Zoey is dragged across the country, stumbling from one crisis to another trying to keep the Hidden where they belong - Hidden. 

    While Zoey and Riley are out trying to get the O.G.R.E.S. re-established, the kidnapper begins communicating with Zoey.  They want to play a game of deadly hide and seek. They are hiding the Aegis and it is up to Zoey to find them before they end up dead. Unfortunately between trying to make sure that monsters and creatures of legend aren't discovered by humans while trying to solve the macabre clues that keep ending in the deaths more and more Aegis, Zoey is not having a good time.  Basically - Worst Road Trip, Ever.

    Zoey is such a great character.  She is nurturing and caring to her friends and family, while having this offbeat, slightly kookie vibe. She is totally, completely herself and nearly all the time, she is completely happy just the way she is. This book shakes up that belief in herself just a bit and I think that Zoey comes out stronger on the other side because of it. Zoey is still learning what she is capable of with her empathy and Aegis powers, and without anyone to tell her she can't do something or shouldn't try something, she makes up her own rules as she goes along. 

    I enjoyed this book, though I missed many of the regulars from the previous books. The author took us on plenty of twists and turns throughout the story, many of which I never saw coming. I was kept glued in and couldn't put the book down for much of the read. The story arc isn't done, so I am looking forward to the next story and seeing where the author is going to take Zoey next.  I gave this book 4 stars.

    Zoey Donovan is an Aegis, she takes care of members of the Hidde

    Zoey Donovan is an Aegis, she takes care of members of the Hidden. They are the beings that normal humans don't know exist. Trolls, closet monsters, and mermaids are just a few of the many different types. This time around Zoey and her reaper boyfriend Riley are on the road trying their best to keep things under wraps from the humans. Oh and they're also on the trail of a killer. With a pocket sized golem in her glovebox, a sexy reaper boyfriend, and the help from a few members of the OGRE squad, Zoey has quite a challenge in this book.

    The Hidden government is trying to rebuild, but is having a hard time keeping up due to some Hidden members deciding they don't want to be in hiding. Since the OGRE squads haven't been paid in months, there is no one keeping things in check so Hidden are rebelling and walking the streets. Zoey and Riley come to the rescue, help reinstate the OGRE squads all while hunting down a crazy lady killing other Aegis'.

    The villain in Golem in My Glovebox gave me goosebumps. She's psychotic, cold and calculating. Did I mention creepy? She's creepy too. I couldn't wait to see how Zoey would handle facing off against her. RL Naquin's writing just keeps getting better, I've loved all the books in the series so far, but this one is the best yet. I highly suggest this series for anyone who enjoys paranormal or urban fantasy. If you haven't read it yet pick up book one, Monster in My Closet.

    3 1/2 STARS

    The fourth book in the Monster Haven series is an intriguing and fascinating fantasy read.  The Hidden government is in shambles and with only string of deadly clues to follow, Zoey and Riley set off on a cross-country chase to stop the murders of the captured Aegises. Will Zoey become the final victim of this new evil or will she finally be reunited with her mother?
    This fast paced plot keeps the reader on the edge of their seat with suspense and action. The author brings this urban fantasy to life with vivid descriptions and details that bring the story to vibrant life and capture the imagination and tension building suspense as the reader follow Zoey and Riley on their cross-country chase and the danger escalates as time runs out.  The characters are strong, compelling, easily related to and grabs the reader’s attention from the very beginning.
    The story has romance in it between Zoey and her reaper boyfriend, Riley, but they really are a little too busy to trying to find this new evil, defeat it and saving the captured Aegises.  The characters draw the reader deeper into the story as the reader gets totally caught up in the drama.  The story invokes a large range of emotions throughout including chuckles, tears, happiness, anger and even some creepy crawlies mixed in as well. 
    The author has created a fascinating world inspired full of wonderful creatures with her own unique spin that inspires curiosity as well as entertaining and she keeps the reader guessing with some surprises along the way.  I do recommend however that the series be read in order to achieve the full impact and a better understanding of the world and the Hidden that live there.  That does not mean that it can’t be read in order you choose, though, as this is my first book and I found it to be an enjoyable read, there were just a few events that were referred to and some politics of the Hidden government that I felt I would have understood better if I had read the previous books, which I will be remedying soon.
