Catch Me

Tonight I am sharing on of my "catch up" books (and review) with you. These are books that I got behind on while my father was ill. I am finally starting to catch up on them (thank goodness) as well as keep current.  I dislike being behind (I feel it reflects badly on me).

Catch Me by Parker Blue is the sixth book in The Demon Underground series.  Val Shapiro is half demon and half human.  She is also a succubus, the paladin for the San Antonio area, and the slayer (quite a combination).  This makes for a complicated relationship with her new beau, Austin who is a vampire (should be interesting).  Austin is one of three lieutenants to Alejandro, the leader of the New Blood Movement.   Then Alejandro goes missing and the rogue vampires are creating havoc.  The vampires start competing to be the new leader (more trouble).  Val along with her faithful (and snarky) hellhound, Fang need to find Alejandro before war breaks out (Val does not want anything to happen to Austin who is a target).  Can Val find Alejandro in time?  What happens when ex-boyfriend, Shade enters the mix?  You will need to read Catch Me to find out!

Catch Me is told from Val and Austin’s points-of-view.  There are quite a few characters in Catch Me and it gets confusing.  This novel is not fast paced (it was slow going).  You do need to read the previous books in the series in order to understand what is happening in Catch Me (or you will be totally lost).  I liked Fang (Val’s hellhound).  He had a quirky sense of humor and I liked his comments.  I did not enjoy Catch Me as much as I thought I would.  This book is aimed at a younger audience (who I believe will love the book) and has the requisite romantic issues for Val and Austin.  I give Catch Me 3 out of 5 stars. 

The other books in The Demon Underground series are Bite Me (currently free on Amazon), Try Me, Fang Me, Make Me, and Dare Me.  I received a complimentary copy of Catch Me from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.

Thank you for visiting!  Take care and Happy Reading!
