I’m Sam, the werewolf book nerd owner of The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore & Bar. Clive, Fergus, and I are moving into our new home, the business is going well, and our folly is taking shape. The problem? Clive’s maker Garyn is coming to San Francisco for a visit, and this reunion has been a thousand years in the making. Back then, Garyn was rather put out when Clive accepted the dark kiss and then took off to avenge his sister’s murder. She was looking for a new family. He was looking for lethal skills. And so, Garyn has had plenty of time to align her forces. When her allies begin stepping out of the shadows, Clive’s foundation will be shaken.

Stheno and her sisters are adding to their rather impressive portfolio of businesses around the world by acquiring The Viper’s Nest Roadhouse & Café. Medusa found the place when she was visiting San Francisco. A dive bar filled with hot tattooed bikers? Yes, please!

Clive and I will need neutral territory for our meeting with Garyn, and a biker bar (& café, Stheno insisted) should fit the bill. I’d assumed my necromancy would give us an advantage. I hadn’t anticipated, though, just how powerful Garyn and her allies were. When the fangs descend and the heads start rolling, it’s going to take every friend we have and a nocturne full of vamps at our backs to even the playing field. Wish us luck. We’re going to need it.

This is such a fun series with shifters, vampires, necromancers, witches, and more. Like most urban fantasy, the Sam Quinn series is best listened to in the order of its release.

Sam, Clive and their dog, Fergus, have recently moved into their new home and the wards are about to be tested. Garyn, Clive’s maker, is expected in San Francisco, but trouble arrives first. Stheno and her sisters have opened the Viper’s Nest Roadhouse & Cafe. Sam and Clive attend opening night as a show of support, but a dead man drained of his blood, have local PD looking at Clive. Then we have vampire battles, and hoards arriving all to support Fergus. Yikes.

Our duo and their friends will be tested and Kelly kept me listening as the action and suspense were never ending from battles to attempted break-ins at their home and bar. It was a barrage of mischief, magic, mayhem, and kickassary. Sam needed to hone all of her skills fast. A character stepped up and surprised us all. It was impressive.

As always, Kelly wrapped things up with just enough of a tease to have me excited for the next audio release. Samantha Desz does the narration and really captures Sam’s spark and Clive’s sensual tones.

Perfect for fans of urban fantasy, paranormal romance and supernatural elements.
