Cleanse your palette with Of Blood and Honey and find out just how good Urban Fantasy can be.

A Dribble of Ink has posted a wonderful review of Stina Leicht’s novel, Of Blood and Honey, in which the Fey and the Fallen clash against the backdrop of the English/Irish conflicts. A dribble of ink says,
“Urban Fantasy. Is that a dirty phrase to your ears?[…] “Oh, I don’t like that stuff,” you say. “Stina Leicht’s Of Blood and Honey is different,” I respond. It’s alive. It has a message. It’s violent because life is violent. There’s sex because the politics of it help define us as humans. More guns are loaded with rubber bullets than silver. No vampires are in sight, and the only werewolf is the shadow of the protagonist’s inner-demons. Throw your misconceptions aside, forget about Sookie Stackhouse and Anita Blake, and explore a whole other facet of the sub-genre.”
