Review: Unholy Blue by Darby Kaye

16 Jan

Unholy Blue

Goodreads Summary:  Strong and Irish. 

That’s how Shay Doyle likes her whiskey. And men. As Healer to a clan of immortal Celtic warriors living in modern-day Colorado, she has been gifted with such a man: Bannerman “Bann” Boru. The only problem is keeping the stubborn warrior alive. For Fate seems to have it in for Bann, and his son, Cor, descendants of the kings of Ireland, and recipient of an ancient grudge from the mad god, Cernunnos. 

But, with a bit o’ luck, Shay, Bann, and the rest of the Doyle clan—along with the aid of a legendary huntsman known as the Black Hand—might just suss out how to kill a shapeshifter that refuses to stay dead, prevent clan warfare, and make a choice that could change their lives.

If they don’t lose them first.

FTC Disclosure: I received an advance e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My thoughts:  I really enjoyed The Stag Lord and was excited to receive an advance copy of the next book: Unholy Blue.  There are many reasons why I enjoy this series: it’s set in my town, it is Celtic in nature and I love the characters. I enjoy the way Kaye builds an intensity into her writing. And the romance is an added plus, too. It’s impossible to not connect with the characters. They are like superheroes, but surprisingly human as well. Even though they are battling supernatural baddies, you still see them struggle with the same day to day struggles as us mere mortals.

While reading the Stag Lord I was on the edge of my seat. Sometimes within a series, I find the second novel to be a bit more “tame” or “calm”? I’m not really sure what word I’m looking for, but what I do know is that Unholy Blue is anything but calm or tame. It is another action packed story that kept me on the edge of my seat. (If I’m going to continue to read this series, I might need to get a seat belt for my reading chair.)

Shay, Bann and Cor are on my top ten list of favorite characters. I can’t wait to read more about them.

I highly recommend Unholy Blue (and the Stag Lord if you haven’t already read it) for anyone look for an exciting read, packed with action and romance. Don’t miss it. It will be released on January 19th.

    Awww, thanks, Beverly! So tickled you enjoyed this one. (I had a blast writing a certain Black Hand, too).
