I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

A demon, an Unseelie faerie, and a vampire walk into a bar...

This Ivy Granger ebook special contains short stories set in Club Nexus, the hidden haunt of Harborsmouth's paranormal underworld.

ICED

A bargain gone wrong leads a highborn Unseelie faerie to life as an enslaved bartender with a taste for revenge.

DUSTED

Being a highly skilled predator doesn't necessarily put you at the top of the food chain at Club Nexus. A southern vampire with a hankering for blood and wanton violence may have bit off more than he can chew.

DEMONIZED

The demon attorney we love to hate has his eye on a certain rockabilly human. Too bad she's brought a crossbow loaded with holy water dipped bolts for this night on the town.

JINXED

Just when Jinx needs a carefree girl's night out with Ivy, a smoking hot demon tries to buy her a drink. She really is the unluckiest human on the planet.

At first, I thought I wasn’t going to be up for reading the same story just told from different viewpoints. I was wrong. The thing that I did enjoy was that with each person, you learned a little more of the story. I found I would skim the first bit, as it was so close to the previous section, but then I could dig in when it picked up in the meat of the story.

This is a short compilation of even shorter stories so you can fly through it in no time. My favorite part is that my fascination for a certain demon is stimulated even more in this installment. Horns and scary form too. I think Ivy’s plan in the end for him really sucks. I think she needs to butt out. Her protectiveness is great and all, but sometimes I think Ivy just goes a bit overboard.

The events in this book will be mentioned a few times in Burning Bright, so if you are obsessive like me about reading everything in order, you will probably want to read this first.

      It definitely was different, but getting to know some of the characters better was really a plus for the next book.

  • Lola Reviewer

    I LOVE demons! I used to love faerie as well too but now I’m not reading those much anymore. 😛 Lovely review, Tanya. 😉

      I really enjoy this demon, demons are evil, but this one has a streak he would like to hide, but slips out every once in a while!
