Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Magic Users
Synopsis: Cold-blooded kidnappers. Long-lost magic. When things get serious, she goes full Sherlock.
Ashira Cohen takes pride in being the only female private investigator in Vancouver. With her skills, her missing persons case should be a piece of cake.
She wasn’t counting on getting bashed in the skull, revealing a hidden tattoo and supernatural powers she shouldn’t possess.
Or the bitter icing on top: a spree of abductions and terrifying ghostly creatures on a deadly bender.
And don’t even get her started on the golems.
Reluctantly partnered with her long-time nemesis Levi, the infuriating leader of the magic community, Ash resolves to keep her focus on the clue trail and off their sexual tension because WTF is up with that?
But with a mastermind organization pulling strings from the shadows and Levi’s arrogance driving her to pick out his body bag, can Ash rescue the captives and uncover the truth or will the next blood spilled be her own?
“You made a choice that now allows you to make a different one. One that is easier to live with. That’s all life is. A string of choices and in the end, we hope we come out ahead.”Deborah Wilde, Blood and Ash

My Rating: ★★★★☆
Review: I wasn’t sure about this book at first but by chapter two I was really into it. It seemed a bit silly and I didn’t really like the narrator but it smoothed out my issues fairly early. It turned out to be a really fun urban fantasy book with a few cute nods to Sherlock Holmes and Jewish mythology.
