Grave Magic Bounty: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Novel (The Forty Proof Series Book 1) by Shannon Mayer - Review
I discovered this book as part of the newly released #PWF Fab 13. I had seen Shannon Meyer's work floating around but for whatever reason, somehow this is the first of her books I have actually read.
Whilst the heroine is over 40, and showing the world that life most certainly doesn't end when you hit that point, for me this felt very much like many other Urban Fantasy books I have read. I think this would appeal very strongly to fans of Kim Harrison's Hollows series (which I myself thoroughly enjoy), but it definitely felt as though the story would have worked and been just as marketable without the PWF involvement.
That being said, Shannon's writing style is one I can appreciate. Her characters are layered, and although the premise of underground supernatural societies policing other supernaturals isn't new, this has some interesting elements thrown in.
A soild 4 stars from me and a recommendation for fans that enjoy Urban Fantasy.
The book sets the reader up for more adventures with Breanna and her new job and the next book is available for pre-order and scheduled to release in May 2020.
