Ivy Granger, psychic private investigator, returns to the streets of Harborsmouth in this addition to the bestselling urban fantasy series.
Holidays are Hell, a point driven home when a certain demon attorney returns with information regarding a series of bloody murders. Five Harborsmouth residents have been killed and every victim has one thing in common--they are fae. Whoever is killing faeries must be stopped, but they only leave one clue behind--a piece of mistletoe floating in a pool of the victim's blood.
The holidays just got interesting. Too bad this case may drive Ivy mad before the New Year. Heck, she'll be lucky to survive Christmas.
Blood and Mistletoe is an Ivy Granger series novella.
I liked that Ivy did a lot of the foot work on this case by herself, and that she called in reinforcement when she needed them instead of trying to take on the baddies by herself. The evil in this novella is beyond crazy and the murders that are being committed are just feeding the crazy. The last thing Ivy needs is to have her power come to life with that creature’s memories. I also liked Ceff’s gift to Ivy. It hit a romantic spot for me. Made me have an awwww moment.
Blood and Mistletoe was a short read, and I felt pretty methodical and without too many highs and lows. I know it is hard to get invested into a novella, but I do recommend that it be read before Ghost Light. It may be short, but it does hold value to the series and you are not going to want to miss it.
