    3.75 stars rounded up Shade's mentor, Mother Hazel, insists Shade to take a case involving werewolf. It's a bet though, if Shade cannot solve the crime, she is to give up her dream of becoming private investigator and goes back being a village witch. If she can, then Mother Hazel wi...

    Just as good as the first I find it refreshing that despite there being a bit of possible romantic undertones, the book is about the mystery. I love that men who are assholes to women aren't suddenly turning out to be good people underneath and getting the girl. The story is well-wr...

    I really, really enjoyed this book. Great continuation with the characters, especially with knowing more about Shade and her possible back story that I hope comes out in book 3. Lots of new characters (which I enjoyed) but the characters in book 1 do make slight appearances throughout ...

    We're back for another Shade Renard adventure. This time her mentor assigns her a case that will result in Shade giving up her dream of being a private investigator or having an unqualified favor from Baba Yaga. If you enjoyed the first installment, then you'll like this one. I must...

    I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet because I had to know what happens next with Shade and the crew my personal review of the book is as follows: I really liked all of the character development and growth that Shade goes through throughout this book even though I pe...

    Disappointing main character seemingly stuck in a teenage mindset panicking in very situation and the common hormonal overload in both books does nothing to add to the plot only highlights her immaturity. Surprising, seeing that hints indicate she is a couple of hundred years old. ...

    Another very enjoyable story; some ties to the first book but largely independent. Jennifer Blackstream is building up a world with substance, giving the role of witch a refreshing twist which harks back to the role of village wise woman; I look forward to the next episode. ...

    Fun and fascinating new series. The first book in the series started a little slow for me but that is just for me. It picked up into the book and became a fun ride along. Book 2 which I just completed was excellent from word one. Blackwell is another name that goes in my follow pile...

    The case Shade is working on takes her into werewolf territory, and it?s not all puppy kisses and cuddles. She has to fight a vengeful sorceress, find connections that seem impossible, and trust her instincts, no matter how hard that task seems. The whole story had me on the edge of ...

    I finished this book in two sittings. For me the book was just as good as the first one in the series, if not better. I read a lot of urban fantasy, and it is very refreshing to find a heroine who tries to solve a case by talking to witnesses and exploring relationships, instead of try...

    Having inhaled book one, Deadline, I eagerly opened Monster to see what Shade, aka Mother Renard, was up to. I really enjoyed how Shade interacted with the characters in this story, although I think she found as many questions as she did answers. And different questions to those rai...

    These urban fiction murder mysteries are fantastic; an effortless combination of the mundane and the magical. The author even manages to give the stories sex appeal without sex or entangling the MC. The end of the story immediately pivots to the unresolved conflicts at the end...

    Un très bon livre très captivant. On ne connait pas encore le passé de Shade Renard mais son enquête est très intéressante. Un monde de loup-garou, fermé, qui ne veut pas vraiment d'elle comme enquêtrice. À travers cette histoire, meme s'il est de fantasy urbaine, on peut en...

    Shade Renard slowly grows into her role as badass private investigator. To prove to her former mentor (none other than the infamous Baba Yaga) that she can do it, she has to solve a murder and find out if the very obvious suspect did it or who else was the culprit. On her side, quirky,...

    Loved this book Second in a series that blends urban fantasy with private investigation. I really like the main character and her familiar. Even though I figured out the murderer about half way thru, getting to the why kept me engaged. The characters you meet along the way have flaw...

    Smart, funny and brilliantly twisty Packed with twists, action and magic. Shade is a PI and a witch facing a difficult case involving werewolves, wizard and other magical creatures. Sit comfortable, you will want to read it until the end. ...

    BAD The story was slow and I figured who the killer was by chpt. 3. The heroine acted like a 16-yr. old and I think they are more mature! If I had read book one I definitely wouldn't have brought this book! Although I'm a true believer that the writer get better with each proceeding...
