Review of ‘Both Ways’ by Ileandra Young
I didn’t know about Ileandra Young’s books until recently, but I’ve been meaning to look them up since I heard her talk on one of the BSB Bookathon panels last June. The second book in the S.P.E.A.R. Mission Files series is coming out soon so I thought I’d start with the first one. And I enjoyed this urban fantasy adventure book a whole lot.
Who would have thought that the fiercest vampire killer would fall for a vampire? Certainly not Danika Karlson, SPEAR (Supernatural Prohibition, Extermination, and Arrest Regiment)’s best agent. When the mayor of Angbec asks her, as a very well-paid personal favour, to locate his son, Danika doesn’t expect to uncover a real coup d’état in the making. Nor for her view of the world she lives in to change so radically, especially as far as her heart is concerned.
Vampires, gargoyles, werewolves and all sorts of paranormal creatures populate what used to be England in uneasy cohabitation with humans.
‘Both Ways’ is a very exciting, fast-paced and fun novel, with all sorts of fights and kickass stunts as well as interesting thoughts on what family really is. And of course now I want a pet chittarik too. 5 stars.
