Review: Motor City Mage



As a cop who keeps paranormals in line, Des has a hard time trusting them. So why does he want the beautiful werewolf Lana more than his next breath? She's mouthy, flamboyant and distractingly sexy—not the type of woman for a reserved mage like him. Lana admires Des, but she can't be with someone who won't take her seriously, no matter how much she'd love to rip off his dr...moreAs a cop who keeps paranormals in line, Des has a hard time trusting them. So why does he want the beautiful werewolf Lana more than his next breath? She's mouthy, flamboyant and distractingly sexy—not the type of woman for a reserved mage like him. Lana admires Des, but she can't be with someone who won't take her seriously, no matter how much she'd love to rip off his dress shirt.

When a dangerous new drug shows up in Detroit, Des must locate the source, and Lana is determined to help. But their plan goes awry, trapping them in a demon dimension. To return home, Lana and Des must flee through a series of unpredictable alternate realities, fighting enemies while trying to shut down the drug trade. But if they're going to survive, they'll have to rely on each other, even though getting closer will add fuel to a fire that's already burning out of control...

MOTOR CITY MAGE is actually the fourth book in the Urban Arcana series and the second one that I have had the pleasure of reading.  And it was a pleasure even though I haven’t read them all.  Each book is complete within itself so I didn’t feel as though I was missing anything.  And since it is one of my pet peeves that so many series books that coming out lately really rely on reading the entire series, I am always ecstatic when I find books that are able to stand all on their own.

Another thing that I really appreciated about this book and this series is the fact that all of the magical species are well balanced.  Not one all powerful which really does lead to the races working together to solve issues.  Oh and let’s not forget the characters.  Ms. Pape does a wonderful job with the characters and the dialogue is very crisp and snappy.

I do recommend this book and this series to lovers of paranormal romantic suspense.  I rate it a 4.3.

***I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  No monies has or will exchange hands.
