Finished it!

Written in Red - Anne Bishop

And what a tremendously fun read it was too. 

 

Humans and 'Others' have coexisted since the earth was formed. Well, coexisted is probably the wrong word. Actually, humans have been trying to avoid being killed by the Others for all those years. 

 

The Others are vampires, elementals, shifters, and other things that go bump in the night. But what lifted this book for me out of all the other similar books out there, was the humour. 

 

"Ignore the fluffy," she muttered. "Remember the part about big and scary."

 

As Tess had pointed out, eating the staff was bad for morale and made it so much harder to find new employees

 

And I loved the idea of a Wolf running a bookshop which sells Urban Fantasy novels. 

 

"After Asia and I snapped at each other this morning, and Ferus shoved his nose in her privates, we sold out all the Wolf-as-lover books. If you drink one of the customers pale, we should sell out the stack of vampire-as-lover stories."

 

Will definitely be checking out the next book in the series.
