Urban Fantasy Fun...

3 Reasons this one's worth reading:

  • Irresistible title:  It happened One Doomsday
  • Fun first line:  Dru Jasper had no idea that the world was prophesied to come to a fiery end in six days.
  • It's got magic, mayhem and some very engaging characters:  Dru uses her magical powers and the crystals she sells to help people with supernatural problems, which is good because Greyson Carter has a big one. He recently purchased a possessed black muscle car at an auction and because of it he's now turning into a demon. And not just any demon; he's turning into one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. And unless Dru and her sorceress friend, Rane, can figure out how to reverse the curse it just might mean the end of the world. And the end of Greyson, who's handsome and nice and who can amplify Dru's magic in ways she never expected. (Plus, he kisses great.)

Need more?

With scary demons and some awesome crystal-powered magic, memorable (and likeable!) characters and good writing, Laurence MacNaughton has created a magical roller coaster ride of a fantasy novel; it's humorous, entertaining, and a lot of fun. I can't wait to get to the library and check out the sequel, A Kiss Before Doomsday, to find out what happens to Dru next. This fun urban fantasy certainly cast a bookish spell on me.

Happy Reading!

    1. It is! Especially if you like urban fantasy that doesn't take itself too seriously.

  6. I think the romance element would put me off! The plot sounds interesting though.

    1. The romance element is barely there. It's mostly about saving the world, and hopefully saving Greyson at the same time.
