The title says it all. During the town’s celebrations Cinnamon gets drunk and ends up saving a demon. One thing leads to another and she finds herself on a quest with tall dark and horny. I meant his horns, CLEARLY, get your minds out of the gutter.
This was everything I ever needed and more. I’m pretty sure it single handedly ripped me from my reading slump and put me back on the right track. The only problem is I need more, now, actually I need it yesterday because if there was a second book, I’d be reading it. Right this moment.
Cinnamon is fiery and hilarious. She actually reminds me of one of my friends to the point that I can hear her voice when I’m reading it. So wild. I’ve recommended it to her as well since we have similar tastes and I can’t wait for her to read it.
Fallon. Oof. What can I say about him other than I would like to find a Fallon of my own. It isn’t often that I fall for a fictional character, in spite of being a massive romance and fantasy romance reader it’s happened only a handful of times, one being Rhysand, but I would seriously prefer a Fallon to a Rhysand. I know, controversial thing to say, but it’s true.
Also, along with being a breath of fresh air, mingling the fantasy genre with the fun and easy effortlessness of a contemporary, this book had me laughing out loud. Another rarity for me. Usually it’s a snort or a silent “lol” like I was texting a friend, but I full on cackled a few times.
I could honestly sing the praises of this debut until the dragons came home to roost, but I’ll leave you with this. If you’re looking for something spicy, imaginative and fun. Pick it up. Don’t hesitate. I am so glad I did. I can’t wait for the next book!
