Publication Date: April 30, 2018
Genre: Adult, Comedy, Paranormal, Romance

Synopsis:

Part-time demon tracker, full-time optimist …

Talia White does what comes naturally to a unicorn: Balances the scales between light and dark with hefty doses of love and joy. 

Faced with a string of high profile demon possessions, Talia is determined to do her job, despite the fact that she finds herself strapped with a brooding dragon warrior as her new guardian. 

That’s the trouble with unicorns … they’ll accomplish their goal one way or another, even if they have to get a little stabby to do it.

Review & Wrap-Up:

The Trouble with Unicorns is a super fun and cheerful read, with not only unicorns, but dragons, mermaids, demons and the Fey realm all making appearances at some point throughout the story. However, it's not a dark magical story like Lord of the Rings. Just like Talia, the unicorn, the story is very colorful and full of all kinds of spunk!

I enjoyed reading The Trouble with Unicorns, but I had a hard time believing it was an adult story. The only thing that made it an adult story are the "romance" or sex scenes, other wise I would definitely call this more of a teen/young adult novel. I have a hard time believing that many adults would read it other than for the mere fact that unicorns are all the rage right now. 😄

The other part I'm critical of is the "fight" scene, or in The Trouble with Unicorns, the lack thereof. If I'm going to read about a struggle or a fight scene, I expect for there to actually be one, and the one between Talia and her friends against the demon and the changelings, there really wasn't one. To me, this is a copout or just lazy on the author's part. Sadly, I'm finding this to be the case more and more lately, at least with what I've been reading lately.

If you don't mind that the "fight" scenes are short-lived (or nonexistent), but are looking for a fun, easy and colorful read, then definitely check out The Trouble with Unicorns, because Team Unicorn Talia with give you all of that!

 

From one bookaholic to another, I hope I’ve helped you find your next fix.

When Live gives you Demons
by Jennifer Honeybourn

Sixteen-year-old Shelby Black has spent the past year training to be an exorcist. Her great-uncle Roy—a Catholic priest and Shelby’s guardian—believes she has a gift for expelling demons, and he’s put her through exorcist boot camp hell, but he still doesn’t trust her to do an exorcism on her own.

High school is hard enough without having to explain that you fight demons for a living, so Shelby keeps her extracurricular activity quiet, especially from Spencer, her cute math tutor. Secrets run in Shelby’s family, though: her mother has been missing ever since an exorcism went horribly wrong, and Uncle Roy is tight-lipped about it. But Shelby’s hell-bent on finding her mom, no matter what—even if what it ends up costing her her soul AND a date with Spencer.
