Long and Short Reviews
You know you’ve had a bad day when your car breaks down and leaves you stranded in the middle of nowhere. Or when you’ve had the worst week at work dealing with coworkers. That’s bad, right? At least you weren’t a victim of attempted murder and learned information that would change the way you see the world forever. Yeah, that’s a tough week. The heroine in Murdering Eve has gone through hell and back, and it isn’t even over yet.
A country song came to my mind while reading this story, one that talks about finding who your friends are when a string of bad luck occurs. Just when I thought things would get better for this heroine, a new surprising element popped up and the chaos began again. Eve is one tough cookie, though even if she’d prefer to live in the state of denial, and chalk it up to a wickedly crazy dream.
Eve is matched with a man that defied an order for the greater good and is paying his price. He’s a man with no regrets. Whit Blackstone is a strong willed man who listens to his gut and heart. Where does that get him? Sent to earth to live among the humans. Now that Eve has discovered some truths that might have been better left untold, he has found a purpose in what was supposed to be his punishment.
This book puts an exciting new twist to the contemporary fantasy world. The characters drew my attention in, along with the fast pacing of the plot. There’s plenty of action and suspense to go around as well. Eve and Whit make for a great leading couple, and the cast of characters, good and bad, kept me intrigued the whole way. Ms. Lee is an author to watch! In this thrilling and enchanting beginning to what looks like a new series, readers have a chance to fall in love with a world unlike ours, one with a simple good vs evil plot, but the elements that make up this storyline takes a fresh unique spin.
I look forward to more books from the author. If you enjoy a contemporary fantasy novel that explores a new take on mythology and characters that fly off the pages then don’t miss Murdering Eve.
