Be careful what you ask for...
Kylie got into journalism to write important stories. Ones about gargoyles and dryads, elemental warriors, and thwarted magical attacks on her city. The bigger the story, the better. So when she lands the opportunity to ask an enchanted everlasting tree for the answer to any question she desires, she doesn’t have to think about it. She wants the story of a lifetime.
So does her nemesis, Nathan. If anyone is going to write a high-profile story, the senior journalist believes it should be him—and Nathan’s not above playing dirty to get his way. Kylie must work fast or risk losing control of her story.
But with every new lead forcing Kylie and her gargoyle companion Quinn deeper into a deadly maze of murder, warped magic, and monstrous beasts, rushing could prove fatal. Kylie is determined to write her dream story, but even she is beginning to wonder: Is the story of a lifetime the last story she’ll ever write?
Leads and Lynxes by Rebecca Chastain
( Terra Haven Chronicles, # 1)
“Be careful what you ask for...” couldn’t have been a better lead in to this fun, supernatural adventure from Rebecca Chastain! LEADS AND LYNXES was filled with action, humor, danger and that attitude that Ms. Chastain is so good at getting across through her characters.
If you love heroines who sometimes look before they leap, have a heart as big as the Grand Canyon and the determination to “make it on her own,” you are going to love Kylie! This young woman accidentally lives life on the edge, or should I say, just over the edge far too often, thank goodness she has her gargoyle Quinn, who is a star in his own right. Then there is Grant, the super-hot, super macho law enforcement officer who sets Kylie’s blood boiling. Could there be a mutual attraction?
As Kylie strives for a the perfect story for her editor, not only could her secrets be revealed, but she will be caught up in a deadly game of murder, monsters and mayhem, all because she made a wish…and set the bar for promises to be a fabulous new series!
Fun reading that never lets up from start to finish! Highly recommended!
I received a complimentary ARC edition from Rebecca Chastain! This is my honest and voluntary review.
