Review: Mistfall by Olivia Martinez

Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 5 out of 5 Fairies
do love it when I pick up a book with little knowledge and therefore few expectations other than I hope I enjoy it, only to discover that I'm bowled over the characters and plot.

I immediately enjoyed Mags' character, the protagonist. She is somewhat similar to other heroines of urban fantasy; feisty, ballsy, attractive and overall pretty bad-ass. I have no issues with this at all. That's one of the main reasons why I love female leads in this genre. What Olivia Martinez offers however, through the creation of her character, is a new type of supe. And a pretty cool one at that!

I foolishly thought that I had the plot figured out, that everything would pan out in a pretty straight forward way. But boy oh boy was I wrong. Olivia Martinez, the clever and crafty author that she is, seriously knocked me for six with her twists and turns. Be prepared there are several. I laughed out loud on several occasions, and was pretty darn shell-shocked at another pinnacle moment in the story. It's been a while since a book led me to tears; this book did that!

The editing could do with a little tlc. Although this was nothing to do with the plot development, I did notice the need for a fine tune. The story, characters and voice overall were successfully crafted and extremely enjoyable.

If you are looking for an urban fantasy with a bad-ass female lead, several twists and turns and with an ending that left me dazed, then Mistfall is a read for you. This is the start of a super series.
