Series I didn t feel as if I had missed too much of the backstory to understand the characters and the plot The Lady in Pink is a cross between fairy tale and urban fantasy and the combination works Blue s thoughts and opinions about the crispy critter he finds in his apartment nearly made me pee my pants with aughter His humor The Taming of the Tights (Misadventures of Tallulah Casey lightens the dark situations he and his partner Izzy face His self destruction is evident as the series continues and he often is the obstacle in the way of his dreams and desires Izzy is an easy character toike I just have to The Great Exchange laugh at the fact she s the former tooth fairy Who knew the tooth fairy was so feisty Kazimer has written a whimsical tale filled with humor and sass If you areooking for something just a The Keys to Tulsa little bit different from your normal paranormal or urban fantasy reads I recommend that you give this series a try if only for theaughter that will ensue Blue and Izzy s new detective agency is going from strength to strength and has become a household name even if your house is a shoe They have offices now and a staff and are a growing successBut when one of their interns is murdered it Oltre i confini del cuore looksike Blue could be the target and even so Masterpiece losing an employee just has to be investigated But as they delve deeper the opposition becomes stronger as they uncover connections with Blue s mysterious past And his curseThe plot of this book is interesting but I m in two minds about it The whole mystery of Blue s origin how it fed the conflict between Izzy and Blue the whole opposition against their discovery and how it pops up in several different ways all work really well Iike how it s related to several parts of the story and is both part of their profession and personal The Reality Creation Technique lives and allowed for some character growthIt also has a series of excellent Noir style cross and double cross as victim and suspect constantly changed and changed and changed again It had some really good twists and unexpected endings I honestly didn t have any idea where it was going or who the culprit was and I was completely surprised several times I appreciate that in any book especially a book with a murder mystery Being kept guessing is always an achievement Soots of positive On the negative side I feel the ending was sprung on me without any real back up to it I didn t see it coming but how could I All the relevant information was dumped in the Flirtation (Shifters Forever After, last part of the book there was no way to extrapolate to this and that whole revelation felt abrupt and rather sudden There s a twist and an abrupt change of direction Still I am curious as to what that means for the futureI also uiteike the whole debate over whether Blue s abilities are a curse or a blessing and I think it s actually done really well after I ve read a huge number of books where the curse has had no real downsideFor me there s a strange disconnect with this book s this series world building which I ve touched on before On the one hand the original elements of the story are excellent The whole idea of fairies that produce dust and need dentin to exist that s an excellent original concept I really What She Wanted like It takes the idea of the tooth fairy and elevates it and explains it It s interesting and it s original and there s some genuine thought behind it that I appreciated There are other hints of things that I think have high potentialike the very original Trolls There s a The Uninvited lot of really uniue elements I m interested in hereBut there s also aot of fairy tale elements that don t mesh well because they re not remotely developed I m going to have to draw on how this is handled in other books to make my point clear When Jasper Fforde write The Fourth Bear we had a Goldie Locks who was very picky and needed everything to be just right While JC Nelson s Grimm Agency had princesses who had powers and Ars poetica lives that mark that In this book we have Goldie Locks who is a woman with blonde hair We have a reference to peopleiving in a shoe but no development or explanation We have women mentioned as princesses but it just seems Decoding Air Travel like it s being used as a synonym for woman I don t understand why these fairy tale elements are there if they areiterally just going to be used as words Goldie Locks and Peter Rabbit could be called Susan and Fred if for all the meaning their names mean It s frustrating because I ve seen how well this can be done and this book isn t doing itBlue has a Dragon's Curse (The Hearts of Dragons Book 1) (English Edition) lot of wrongheadedness when it comes to his attitudes towards Izzy He is protective to the point of controlling he tries to keep secrets from her for her own good and he is constantly trying toock her up or keep her inside for her own safety This could be seen as a general sense of caution when we consider the threats against him but he has absolutely no regard for his own safety at all he is reckless to the point of foolishness

book Izzy was the Tooth Fairy but Blue does something and she is notonger the Tooth Fairy so all of the fairies hate himIn this book he was The Sorcerers Soul looking into these crimes of fairies being kidnapped by someone who is stealing their fairy dust to shoot up Yeah that s what I thought when I read it I might have been dreaming Blue is also trying to find his birth parents whoeft him as a baby on a doorstep You see Blue has blue hair and is electric as in touch me or tick me off and I will shoot ightening up your arse Izzy is part human and part fairy She does have the wings though I ove the banter between these two and Blue is hilarious many times in the book A rambling from Blue I d Satans Mistress learned aong time ago nothing good can come from an anonymous number Or anonymous sex for that matter unless one What My Mother and I Dont Talk About liked telemarketers and STD s And that s not even the funny stuff but I digress Meanwhile someone is trying to kill Blue because they don t want to him to figure out who his parents were so Izzy and Blue have to try to figure out who is doing this Ioved some of the names of the cities and places in the book You have Alphabet Soup City Fairyland and New Never City to name a few Some of the cops are just as interesting Detective Goldie Locks and Detective Peter Rabbit I just Tagus the Night Horse (Beast Quest, loved all of thoseittle aspects of the book Oh and Love Beyond Limits (Among the Fair Magnolias) let me not forget Bo Peep she was a bit of a slut I mean seriously this book is a riot just with this world the au. Coming home to find a dead body in youriving room isn’t the best way to end a ong day’s work especially when that work is as New Never City’s premier blue haired PI It’s even worse when the corpse is your intern electrocuted to death and you.
Thor made up I thoroughly enjoyed it and ook forward to books the author has written I would Gol Atan Kaleye like to thank NETGALLEY and KENSINGTON BOOKS for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review Posted on What I m ReadingLet me just say Ioved The Lady in Pink It s absolutely fantastic However there are a few things you need to know before you start this particular story 1 Still not your happy cheery fairytale that we have all grown to The Age of Disruption love Basically what Disney has painted as fairytales That is a whole other subject that we are just not going to get into Nitty and grittyike the first book 2 If you embark on this story you should probably read the first story because you will need the background of Blue and Izzy 3 Still a Burning bridges lot of messed things going on New Never City and add a dash of twist to the story Seriously I didn t see them until the end Okay I kind of guess some of them but not to the extent of the twist 4 It s a mystery you are galavanting throughout New Never City and areas around it Like the first book we are hanging out aot with Blue He s still the same outlook on Freshman Scandal (Freshman Dorm, life and it s uite humorous Yet he needs to solve a murder that happen in his own apartment thateads him to discover other things that connect to his past We actually Rembrandts Jews learn aot about Blue s past and it s mind blowing Blue and Izzy have this sexual tension but Blue doesn t want to go pass business partner friend Refusing His Second Chance line Which complicates things since they re extremely attracted to one another Of course you have add the new characters that maybe good or bad Yes it s still nitty gritty and probably beike how the Brothers Grimm would have Brand Name Dates love to see these characters modernize When I was reading the story it kind of reminded me of the tv show Grimm Anyway if you don t mind your fairytale characterseading a darker side you might enjoy this series However if you Confectionately Yours Collection (Confectionately Yours, lean towards the Disney portrait of fairytales you might want toook elsewhere Copy provide by
