Review: GODDESS WITH A BLADE by Lauren Dane

e6f7fde7-d10d-4658-af02-36d107ab6d11img100FROM NETGALLEY:

Rowan Summerwaite is no ordinary woman. Physical vessel to the Celtic Goddess Brigid and raised by the leader of the Vampire Nation, she’s a supercharged hunter with the power to slay any vampire who violates the age-old treaty.

A recent string of murders has her at odds with Las Vegas’s new Scion, the arrogant and powerful Clive Stewart. The killings have the mark of Vampire all over them, and Rowan warns Clive to keep his people in line-or she’ll mete out her own brand of justice.

Though her dealings with Clive are adversarial to say the least, Rowan is intensely aware of her attraction to him. But she can’t let it distract her from her duty-to find and battle the killer before more women die.

GODDESS WITH A BLADE is fantastic. I loved the “world” the book is set in and the characters are some of the best I’ve ever read. That is the thing I love most about Lauren Dane books – the characters. They are always so three-dimensional and realistic (even when they are a woman with a goddess inside her and a 500 year old vampire). The chemistry between Rowan and Clive is off the charts. Their relationship is full of her poking fun at him and him putting up with what he calls her “vulgarity”. I loved that Clive found the things that most people would want to change about Rowan adorable. He doesn’t want to change her at all. The action is fast-paced and the sex is hot. GODDESS WITH A BLADE is a fantastic urban fantasy and I’m hoping this isn’t the last time we see these characters. This book will be released on 6/6/11.
