Amara: Slayer of Immortals
It was quite the world that they were in. The development of the species were amazing, but I do have some notes. The most notable one being: to give a little background information when introducing a character. I understand that usually people don't have an inner monologue going "This person in front of me is named Joe, he is a few years older than me but we are good friends" whenever you see a person, but a little bit of background can go a long way. Believe me. Readers can get very confused. Like I had no idea who Triscote was or where he came from for a few chapters after he was introduced. I was going to mention the ending but open further thought, it seems to work. I'm assuming this is a series so it makes sense for the book that the "main villain" wasn't really a "big villain" for this one book. It just sort of established a scar for the rest of the series. The last con I want to mention is that the "big villain" wasn't introduced very early in the story. It took perhaps a good 20 chapters of the book for him to be introduced.

Finally the pros! Amara is a woman with an interesting life style, and it's different to see it in this type of genre. Usually the main characters are "holier than thou" innocent humans. It's interesting to see a main character that just likes sex. A lot of people do but they aren't represented in books very often because most pros are quite old ;)
The book wasn't very long but I feel we got a good bit of world building in so that's wonderful. There were a lot of different species that were accounted for, including some of the author's own design.
Overall, it was good novel. Is it perfect? No, but what is? This book gets pretty close. There are few flaws and a lot of pros and I'd recommend it for anyone who loves a bit of Urban Fantasy.
