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 Chain Locker - W.G. Garvey In this spine-tingling military thriller, Mike Ryan, a naval investigative officer, against the terrorists who car bombed his kid brother. But wait…were those really Arabic terrorists, or is something else going on?

This is one of those books that you can't put down until the very end. Part of that is due to the well-developed plot, but most of it rests on the shoulders of the intriguing characters. Mike Ryan is a kick ass guy with a heart of gold, but he's not a cliche. Likewise, Roya is also an interesting female lead. Together, the two of them have a lot of chemistry.

Because this book was written by someone who actually served in the Navy, the details are all very authentic. You never get the idea that the author was using 'tricks' to make the plot work. It's a speed ride with a very satisfying conclusion. I highly recommend this book and will definitely read other works by this author.
