Michelle Scott, urban fantasy author

I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance! Although I'm not too keen on books that are overly sexy, I don't mind a little heat if it goes along with the story. At the same time, I'll read pretty much anything from classic novels to contemporary fiction.

The Vampire in the Iron Mask (Spinoza Series #3) - J.R. Rain,  Elizabeth Basque The concept in this story was very good, and I found myself hooked from the start. The hard-boiled detective language was amusing but appropriate. The writing was solid, and the narrator easy to relate to.

Since this 'book' is either a long short story or a short novella, events move very rapidly, and the character development is limited. These aren't bad things, obviously, but I was left wanting more. The part I disliked the most was that the plot was so straightforward and predictable that I knew midway through how things would turn out.

Although this is a fun, action-packed story, it offers no surprises.
