After the prison break (Snared, book 2) Kaliya and Raphael find their investigation blocked at every turn. Those who created Raphael and orchestrated the prison break have powerful friends on the tribunal and every lead is a dead end. The only path left for them is to risk everything and go rogue.
Wow. This book is amazing. It’s a part of an ongoing series and it’s worth reading book one and two before jumping into Monsters but if you’re not that way inclined I honestly believe this book will work as a stand-alone which is quite unusual in urban fantasy.
It’s a slow burn for the first half of the book but buckle your seatbelts because the second half is a runaway train. 5 Stars.
Many thanks to K.N. Banet for providing me with this review copy.
Kaliya deals with the very worst of the supernatural community. The killers and the politicians. And sometimes they are one and the same.
While performing a routine prison inspection, she and Raphael are attacked and find themselves battling for their lives. Not only must they stay alive, they need to find out who orchestrated the attack and who was the target. Kaliya or Raphael?
Snared is like standing in front of a speaker stack at a concert. It thumps into you from beginning to end.
The author’s Jacky Leon series is very much Urban Fantasy but Kaliya Sahni despite being set in the same world feels a little different. It’s a Marvel Superhero Comic. You can almost see the characters rendered in beautifully illustrated panels.
Loved this book.
A review copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review
Gin Blanco has a lot on her hands. She is not only the unpopular boss of Ashland’s criminal underworld but she has discovered there is a rival and perhaps even more insidious organisation called The Circle that is pulling strings from the shadows.
She really doesn’t have time to track down a missing person but when one of her lieutenants calls in a favor she finds herself doing just that. A serial killer is on the loose in Gin’s patch and she’s determined to hunt him down and save his latest victim.
In Snared Jennifer Estep runs with the same tried and true formula that has made her one of the biggest names in Urban Fantasy. This whole series is like buttered popcorn. There isn’t much to it but it’s so much fun that you won’t be able to stop until all that’s left are those few sad unpopped kernels sitting in the bottom of the bucket.
