Synopsis: Detective
Elliott “Eli” Robinson and his new partner, Ava Aguilar, are baffled by a
series of brutal murders happening in their fair city. No evidence, no
eyewitnesses…only mutilated corpses with missing internal organs.

When Eli and Ava stumble upon evidence of similar gruesome crimes around the
globe, they realize there is more to the murders, but the answers continue to
elude them. In a race against time, Eli and Ava must figure out who is behind
the killings and stop them before more people die.

But the answers will take them out of their comfort zone and into the realm of
the fantastic: another world with a different set of rules, and a leader who
has no qualms about killing.

Review: This
was an interesting read! Because of my friend Diane @ FictionZeal I have
been wanting to try some more mystery books, which was I looked forward to
reading this one!

Although the title does make it sound super gory, I can
assure you that this book is not. In fact, it is a pretty clean book, with a
murder case where people end up missing their organs. However, what the cops
don’t know is that the perpetrators are from another land. I was okay with the
whole fantasy element mixing in with the mystery, but I did want a bit more
mystery in this. Instead the fantasy elements kind of won over here.

 

Ava’s life quote
And the fantasy wasn’t too amazing :/ Yes, Tani and
Keena, the characters who came from the fantasy land were awesome. I loved how
they were so surprised about everything new at earth, and how they were the
first to stand up against their leaders. I liked that they were so close and
cute as well, and the budding romance was sweet. What I didn’t like was that
there was not enough world building when it came to the actual realm they lived
in. I also felt like their fantasy world wasn’t different enough from earth. I
didn’t even know in what ways it was different until halfway through the book…

I really liked Ava’s character! She’s a female cop, and a
feisty one at that. She has her own connections, is not afraid of running with
them men and at the same time manages to stay feminine all the way through. I
loved her character and the way she was unafraid of anything and willing to
believe. Eli was the main character we get to hear the most of, per se, and I
think he was pretty cool too. He had his own problems, as in getting over his
divorce. But it was good to see his character develop in the novel.

The ending was liked and disliked. I felt like we didn’t
get enough of an epilogue to Ava and Eli’s story, and I really wanted to have a
bit more closure there! Especially on the romance side of their story. But when
it came to Tani and Keena we had a lovely epilogue that left me satisfied,
hence feeling tied up there.
