Have you missed my ridiculously long and rambling reviews as I go on and on in either obsession, disappointment, or indifference?? Haha well fear not because I’m back with another review that I just couldn’t help but want to share on my blog despite my year of hiatus!

Today, I welcome you to the world of the Others. Dangerous shifters whom prey on humans like it’s Taco Tuesday, humans bold enough to try and overthrow the ancient beings whose land they want to claim, and a young woman with deadly secrets of her own yet an innocence in her heart that could change everything and become humanity’s only saving grace. This series of semi-standalone novels is an urban fantasy series wrapped up in a gritty crime and mystery veil with a bit of horror thrown into the mix and it’s something you won’t want to miss out on.
