I know, I know, I liked a YA fantasy, not even in spite of the romance but because of it What is the world coming to I gotta say this right because many people I interact with on Goodreads will not like this book and under different circumstances I would probably be one of them I really don t want anyof those I read this because of you and it sucks comments So let me just say that this book was sold to me as a paranormal romance, not a fantasy, and I think it was pretty damn thrilling on that front I got what I went in expecting.This kind of love hate sexy banter romance works really well for me I especially liked Lou, which I think helped the whole thing, to be honest Her witty comebacks and refusal to sit down and behave made the story evenfun I am fairly certain the main issue for most people will be the world of the novel I m not even sure what it s supposed to be It s some sorta like France fantasy world where people speak French, but it s not exactly France France Yes, I know, I describe things so well But I don t know what else to say It s a made up world and I don t think we re supposed to say it s France, but like, psst, it s also basically France And it mixes some medieval views on women withmodern attitudes just in case you weren t confused enough.But, you know what I didn t really care I had a lot of fun reading it The banter, the steaminess, even the whole witches vs witch hunters plot held my attention That s the central story line I won t give away how it happens, but Reid is a witch hunter and he is forced by the archbishop to marry Lou who is, unbeknownst to him, a witch The two of them hate each other, but of course things are about to change It s exciting I knew what came next I recognized the faint brush of energy against my skin, the familiar thrumming in my ears.Magic.Then came the screams I do find myself wondering if the sequel can possibly be as good This book drags out the tension through 500 pages which is too long and by the end it s kinda been played out While the witch aspect is somewhat interesting, I do not think I want to read another 500 page novel about just that I guess I ll see.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube it seems almost wrong to rate this bc it feels like i m reviewing a fan fiction that i read at 3 amthere are a bunch of complaints i have about the craft of this book, but at the same time it was a whirlwind of a story that kept me wildly entertained even as i physically stopped myself from rolling my eyes every other chapter therefore, it sits right between a one for quality and a three for fun.although if i EVER see the phrase big titty liddy again it s on sight This is one of the most ridiculous books I ve read this year and it s only January It has such an absurd setup for the plot, clumsy characterization, and the humor lands very poorly I cringed every time the main character would loudly sing Big Titty Liddy I did like the 1 sex scene though. sooooo much fun It doesn t

witches and witchhunters one badass song about a lady named Big Titty LiddyI know if you aren t swearing or singing about well endowed barmaids, something is wrongI honestly inhaled this and if it weren t for actually having to adult, I would have finished it in one sitting Before I get into the crooks of my review, let s meet our two main characters Lou Reid If there s one thing about this book that completely sold me was the fact that I loved so many characters Especially these two The characters in this book had me crying, laughing and turning every page like an addict Lou stayed true to herself throughout the entire book and was never sorry for being a badass female I enjoyed her company right from the beginning and it was such a journey to watch her story unfold Enter Reid Reid was the horniest mess all encapsulated within the perfect gentleman He was everything, to be honest For all those people that mentioned their dynamic is so similar to Nina and Matthias from Six of Crows you re absolutely rightYou really think I could knock two fully grown men unconscious My husband s reply came instantaneously YesTheir banter was off the charts, and their chemistry practically flew off the page Because this book was told in dual POV s, I thought it was going to be a problem to distinguish two separate voices, but that was not the case Both these characters had such a wonderful character development throughout the story and even better, was seeing them grow together I do have to say that this is completely a New Adult book, and not a YA Reid and Lou definielty get hot and heavyWhen you weren t in bed, I thought maybe maybe you d Left I said shrewdly It s still on the agendaFor those who know my reviews, you know that I often fall into the overhype trap I get very excited about books that have very high ratings and come in highly recommended, but then end up disappointed I think I ve finally found the winner, folks The world building a lavish french renaissance esque setting with a hub full of of illegal magic, a pleasure house with a mysterious lady, and the men of the church was fantastic, and embedded within the story rather than separated by info dumps There were so many plot twists and character arcs that I was invested inthan just the romance between Reid and Lou, the story itself was fan fucking tastic Truly such a magnificent debut It was so easy to love this bookCan you put something on He waved a hand in my direction, the other firmly pressed against his eyes I can t talk to you when you re sitting there sitting there Naked His teeth clamped together with an audible snap YesI didn t want this story to end to put it plainly I loved it so much that I m just going to ignore the randomness of the last couple of chapters hehe One shoutout that I would also like to mention is the fact that this book had LGBT characters but didn t make it a big deal or put any spotlight on them It was briefly mentioned as a passing comment that Coco had female lovers and then when the fucking Prince of the kingdom all but asked if Reid and Lou wanted to join Coco and him on a sexcapade Hell yes to queer characters that don t have being queer as their major character trait This is going on my all time favourites shelf and I need the second book yesterday I know I know this does not have the qualities of a 5 star book The magic system is nonsense and undeveloped I have never read fanfiction in my life but this book sure felt like one However I really really enjoyed it Reid reminds me so much of myself because I too was raised into a family where there were no curses, and even as an adult now it still feels kinda awkward when someone curses near me. .KINDLE ☬ Serpent & Dove ⚓ A Brilliant Debut, Full Of Everything I Love A
