The author sent me a copy of this book (epub format) in exchange for an honest review.

My rating:  4  of  5  stars

Plot

Lorcan and Orla escaped their tragic fate on Earth by entering the Daimon Gate, a universe governed by virtuous principles. However, their entry was considered a dishonest attempt that violated the most important principle of that universe. To earn their keep, Lorcan and Orla had to return to Earth on a mission which would lead to several dangerous encounters with were-creatures.

This is the second installment in an urban fantasy thriller series, filled with paranormal and science fiction twists and turns.

 

Genre(s):  Urban Fantasy Thriller, Paranormal Romance

Length:  235 pages

Teaser


The Host sat. “While I was looking into that particular issue, I came across a nuance, a piece of information from a computer database on Earth that recorded something about you and what happened at Century tower.”

Lorcan whirled around. “How is that possible? The EYE can’t see into private places.”


My Opinion

Blue Fox re-introduces you to Orla and Lorcan, antiques’ thief and hacker. Orla’s strange encounter with a gate-keeper leads to a dangerous adventure on Earth.. This crossover between the Spectrum and the A Shade of Mind series is well handled. Their adventure is a fun mix of urban fantasy, thriller and paranormal romance; the book has a pleasant flow. The genres are well balanced.

With Blue Fox, D. N. Leo has created a worthy second instalment of the Spectrum series – as entertaining as the first one; the characters aren’t described in too much detail, despite that you can easily imagine them; they have virtues and flaws, are quite believable. D. N. Leo takes us on a journey, pretty close to Orla and Lorcan. I was drawn into the story, an invisible observer, cheering them on, shaking my head, holding my breath, etc.

Blue Fox is a good read for urban fantasy suspense fans, appreciating a touch of paranormal romance and a certain (slightly) stubborn protagonist.

This is a very pleasant read, part of a pretty entertaining series.

In brief:

Writing Good
Plot Some unanticipated twists
Mood Suspenseful
Pace Steady
Characters Developed
Violence Some violence
Sexual content No sexual content (some hints)
POV Third person

Please take a look at my statement on reading in My train of thoughts on …reading.  Now I am asking you.  🙂

My questions for you bibliophiles:
What about you?  What did you think about Blue Fox?  Or – as you presumably did not yet read Blue Fox  – are you now interested in reading it yourself?

My question for you cinephiles:
If Blue Fox was filmed – who should direct it, who could you imagine as actors?

I am looking forward to reading your comments.  🙂
