    Carpe Demon, A Carus Novel: Book 3, J. C. McKenzie    Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre:  fantasy paranormal. Romance Well, onto book three and of course when I got to the end I feel like I need book four now – luckily for me the author had given me an ARC, and for all of you who are just as impatient it’s out soon, next month in fact, so not too long to wait. Once again the story plunges straight into the dramas. Its a series that full of action, with poor Andy right in the centre. She’s still with the SRD but as an Ambassador rather than an agent, though Booth is gone and the obnoxious Agent Tucker is out to get rid of Andy. He’d better join the list, as it seems to be an ever growing number  after her. She’s still trying to find out more about her role as Carus and her family. Without much success, but who knows what’s round the corner. There’s still the Wick/Tristan triangle. They’re both great guys but for me Wick has the edge. Whether that’s because she met him first I don’t know – I just feel they fit together so well,  and he was so patient with her when she was really being difficult. He understood her reactions and allowed for them and that’s where he scores for me. Tristan is patient too, but he hasn’t had to go through so much with her, to let her work through issues in the same way. Still....we’ll see ;-)  Its another story of murder and mayhem with an old enemy coming back. The demon Bola, the one who took control over the pack she was with years ago, until finally her Beast had enough and decimated them. She tries hard to keep her mind away from that time – it took her many years to get past it and thoughts still have the power to render her helpless. Who wouldn’t be, we know some of what she went through, but I suspect its just the tip of the iceberg. Wick can’t help her much tied as he is to Lucien, but where he can he does. Tristan doesn’t have those ties though but she doesn’t want to bring anyone she loves into danger so she’s off once more putting herself head first into trouble, with Lucien demanding she and Wick get rid of the demon yesterday, the SRD not being helpful, her witch neighbours...well, as usual they’re in the mix. I do like them, they make me smile with their odd ways, the karaoke nights and such. There’s so much to puzzle out. How did Bola get here, what does he want ( other than a killing spree) and how can she get rid of him? He’s incredibly strong and she’d really like to kill him for good, not just banish him so he can get loose in the future. No-one seems to have any answers though, and Lucien is champing at the bit, threatening to gut Wick so as to hurt Andy, just to hurry her up. He doesn’t seem to realise she’s doing her best, he only cares how things look in the eyes of other vampires, and to stop any threats to him by them if they think he’s weak. Andy would love him to die, to finish the endless threats to Wick and his pack, but she’s tied to his life and she’d die too so she needs to do what she can to aid him. Once more its a mix of multi-layered plots, of the love triangle and the need for her to make a choice, of her search for her roots and what lies in her future, and of course she feels a strong need as always to protect everyone, humans, Supes, Andy feels protective of all for different reasons. The end – that made me sooo sad, and yet I understood why. Just didn’t like it :-( but in stories like this changes come thick and fast so I’m still hoping.  I lo

Beast Coast left off with our kick-ass Andy taking on the new role as ambassador for vampire Lucien, and not by choice. Lucien bound her to him, so she’s like the perfect employee…without benefits. Everything he tells her to do, she’s gotta do it. Which sucks big time for her when a demon from her past blasts into the vampire boardroom, raises some hell, and then goes on a murder spree, because Lucien orders her to “take care of it”. Vampires. *Rolls eyes* Carpe Demon takes Andy on an emotional journey into her past, where she has to face her demons–literally–and she discovers a little bit more about her Carus nature while still trying to figure out her screwed up love life. If you’re looking for a blend of action, humor, and a cast of awesome characters with a side of romance, don’t miss out on this series. Seriously. It rocks. One of the things I love best about J.C.’s world are the characters. Even the bad guys have tons of layers, so much so that it’s hard not to like some of them. We have the vampires, shifters of all kinds, witches, and now the demons take part of the stage. And yeah, there’s even a likable demon. I went into Carpe Demon thinking it was the last installment and wondering by the time I was getting close to the end how in the world Andy was going to solve all her problems in the next few pages. Luckily, I was wrong. There’s more to the story after Carpe Demon. *Flails* She still has to deal with her love problem (my vote is still for Tristan…purr) and I absolutely loved how Andy took charge at the end, but things aren’t wrapped up, and I can’t wait to see what supe Andy has to deal with next.

Carpe Demon, is chalk full of surprises, vampires, romance, shifters, demons, secrets, agendas, and lots of action. This is the third book in the Carus series and should be read in order. We find out a little more about Andy and being a carus but there is still more to unearth. She appears to make a choice between the two Alphas Tristan and Wick. I am thrilled but I ache for the other one as they are both great men. Andy has her reasons though and they really make sense. J.C. does a wonderful job of binding her readers into a deep spell that holds us willingly captive for hours on end. You'll be addicted to this series if you give it a try! It has wit, a snarky, sassy, strong heroine who has a good head on her shoulders and a strong moral compass, two great love interests, vampires, witches, shifters, demons....... Have I got your attention yet? I strongly recommend all three of these books to those of you who like urban fantasy or paranormal romance. The romance has been strictly PG and is acceptable for readers of any age. I like a good deal of steam normally but with these books, the humor, action and suspense take the cake and I don't feel like I am missing a thing. I received an ecopy from the author in exchange for my honest opinion. It was another stellar addition to a phenomenal series!
