Down and Dirty
An interesting take on an old myth – worth reading.
What is it about?
Avalon, Avie, is used to being unnoticed. In fact, for a great majority of her life, people have ignored her or even forgotten she was there. Dates are hell, jobs are hilarious and keeping friendships beyond her one true and bestie, Summer, is impossible. She really is invisible… and she’s tired of it. She just wants someone, somewhere and somehow to see her.
That wish is granted one night at a Dance Club, when Avie somehow garners the attention of not just one, but four amazingly hot men who really see her… and can’t look away. When fate intervenes and the dice are thrown, Avie finds herself landing amid a Quartet of Supernatural hotties with secrets of their own, secrets that involve her, who she is… and what she is. Now that they can see her, will they help her? And if so, how can she trust them?
For a good part of this book, I was going to rate it a 3 or 3.5, then the last quarter smacked me in the face and upped the ante! I got vague echos of Arthurian legend in the beginning, but nothing solid aside from her name and a few other tidbits, then suddenly you realize this IS all Arthurian legend (ok… so not Arthur, but still!) plus the twist came out of nowhere. I was NOT expecting that.
It’s rare that a book can surprise me these days (I read so bloody much) but this one did, and in a good way. What felt trite and forced morphed into the beginnings of a tale I want to follow to the end – much like they are chasing the magic of Avalon (The island, not the person).
First Person, Occasional Multiple POV
- Gets better as the book builds.
- New takes on power and legend
- Well edited
- Really a slow burn when it appears like it would fast or medium.
- Took a bit to get into
- Choppy once or twice
Worth reading, especially if you are a fan of Incubus’s or Arthurian Legend.
