Blood & Mistletoe by E. J. Stevens Audio Review

three-stars

Holidays are worse than a full moon for making people crazy. In Harborsmouth, where many of the residents are bloodsucking vampires or monstrous fae, the combination may prove deadly.

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.

I have really come to enjoy town of Harboursmouth and what better time to go back to it than Christmas. It’s too bad for Ivy and Jinks they will be spending part of that time solving a mystery. As I said in my review of the previous book in this series I love Ivy and Jinks. They are such awesome characters and they work so well together. They also have such a bond that can’t be broken by anyone. Ivy is asked to try to solve this mystery by Forneas of course and she decides to take him up on it since Ceff has to go out of town. I loved seeing Ivy work out this story and try to solve who was behind it and who wouldn’t like the creep factor of knowing the killer was using the Fae to create their own mistletoe tree. I mean this is Harboursmouth and creepy comes with the territory.

As the story continues and Ivy gets deeper into solving things she finds out that Marvin is missing too. I had full confidence that even with what all she had going on Ivy would be able to handle it all with a little help from her friends and once again she pulls it off. I think listeners of this one will once again enjoy the narrators as they did a fantastic job and brought the characters to life. They managed to pull them off and make them sound like just what I would expect from them. I highly recommend this one and can’t wait to listen to the next one. This series is such a fun and engaging series to listen to.
