Review Copy Source: Author
Half-bloods with Thierry’s skill set are given two options. They can join the conclave’s marshal program, or they can pack their bags. Turn down the job offer, and you’ve just shredded your residency pass for the mortal realm and booked yourself a one-way ticket to Faerie.
Texas is the only home Thierry has ever known, and she’s not going anywhere. Even if it means following in her notorious father’s footsteps as a peacekeeper. But pinning on the badge opens her eyes to the fact sometimes fae need protection too, and that sometimes humans are the real monsters.
With a great pace, interesting characters, a complicated romance and a fun storyline, DOG WITH A BONE introduced the Black Dog series and made me want to read more.
The book starts in the midst of what you would consider a final exam, and Thierry is the only one in her class to make it through. She is finally a marshal for the conclave and her partner is the sexy Shaw who she's wanted for a while. I found Thierry to be a fun character that is willing to put herself on the line to get the job done.
The relationship between Shaw and Thierry is a bit complicated. He was her teacher so they couldn't really have a relationship. Now they're partners and it's probably not a good idea now either, but they decide to give it a try anyways. Nothing really happens between the two as whenever they are about to go at it they are interrupted. SO annoying. Would have been nice to see more out of those two.
The story was quick and easy to enjoy. There's a lot of action and danger. The world was easy to understand and didn't require a whole lot of explanation. DOG WITH A BONE might be self-published, but it's well written, so if you're an urban fantasy fan give it a try.
I gave it 4/5 stars
