Angel Bait Book Review
Urban Fantasy At Its Finest
Action, thrills, snark, love…Tricia Skinner’s debut novel ANGEL BAIT has it all.
The first story in what is sure to be a fierce and fabulous urban fantasy series, ANGEL BAIT transports us to a gritty Detroit where humans co-exist with a variety of preternatural creatures–shifters, vampires, angels, demons, and of course, the nephilim, Heaven’s half-human, half-angel assassins.
The author’s tight plot, great pacing and world building sink the reader deep into this dark world where we meet nephilim Jarrid, one hot badass alpha male who doesn’t know what hits him when he teams up with Ionie, a smart, tough-as-nails female journalist. Their sexual tension sizzles and adds a satisfying layer to the overall story (sorry, no plot spoilers here).
The rest of the cast of characters–both good guys and bad guys–are as well-drawn as the hero and heroine. With unique voices and personalities they add a richness and depth to every scene. Solid and natural dialogue and delicious twists and turns in the plot kept me turning pages as did the action scenes, each one well-choreographed and vivid.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading the next.
