I wish I could give two scores, one for the incredible imagination and world building and one for the execution. If the author used an editor, then they need to find someone who is pickier for the next book. I love the characters but found it difficult at times to follow all the action as there is a definite continuity issue. The book could be twice as long and still not have enough detail for everything that happens. The reader isn't subjected to the dreaded info dump but from time to time a bit more detail would have helped. More of an issue is a jump from one situation to another without enough explanation. That gets the negative out of the way. I loved the characters, Deva is strong and not arrogant. She grows delightfully throughout the book, helping those she loves and putting herself in front of her friends and the innocent time after time. I do love a super shero. Padraig is, of course, the ideal immortal male, closed in and arrogant. So much fun to watch the walls come tumbling down. The paranormal world this author has built is complex and multi layered, giving the promise of many many books to come. I can't wait to read them, with the hope the editing issues will not be as great a problem.

Supes, Weres & Norms! Oh My! Deva Morgan is a Fae-human half-breed whose powers are growing by leaps and bounds as she approaches her thirtieth birthday. She’s surrounded by an eclectic team she calls family when Fae prince, Padraig O’Neill, walks into the bar where she’s bartending and declares himself her Protector because she is the Cáidh Arm, the Goddess’ Holy Weapon in the fight against the Dark Lord of the Abyss. He’s to protect, teach and guide her as well as help stabilize her growing powers in the coming War. Let the ass kicking begin. A great story! I love epic battles and the fight of good over evil, light over dark and at the center is someone who never thought they would be the center of it all. Deva has been trained by weres and supernaturals since the death of her Fae dad who saw in a vision she would be the new Cáidh Arm for the Goddess. She knows how to fight, but actually going to war? That scares the crap out of her. She fears she won’t get a handle on her growing powers, that she’ll fail the Goddess, Otherworld and Earth by being defeated by the Dark Lord and, most of all, she fears losing the few people she loves most. Deva handles it all with some trepidation, but with everyone depending on her she pulls up her big girl panties and carries on. The world building is great, the characters interesting, the plot fascinating. The War has only begun. I can’t wait to see what happens in Books 2 & 3! *The author provided a copy of this book to me for review. Please see disclaimer page on my blog.

I really liked the premise of this book. The plot was well thought out and I liked some of the characters. The issue is that it often felt like a second book. So much is assumed and there are many plots that seem to come out of nowhere. It felt like there was alot that didnt make sense and some good backstory and world building in the beginning would have been a huge help. Because of this it was hard to get attached to the characters. The romance between the male and female leads felt forced. The male lead was really hard to understand. It seemed like someone who was 1000 years old should have been a bit more complex. Overall a pretty good effort. It could be a wonderful series with some work

What a Home run this book was! Wow! This book was one of those books once you get it, reality does not exist any longer. Action, Romance, Witty humor, and lets not forget the gorgeous men and warrior women! That is just a taste of what you would find in this awesome read. You can also find Were's, Shifters, demons, Fae, magic. and that's just the beginning. The characters are so well developed, that they will send you through a whirl wind of emotions as you move through this well formed plot and beautifully sculpted world. I yearn to read the next book. Yes I did say yearn.
