When I first began reading this book I was reminded of all the things I loved about the first two Anita Blake Laurell K Hamilton books Ari the heroine is somebody you can root for in a book She's committed to her job smart as a whip and vulnerable to a sexy guy When I say vulnerable I mean that you can sense her attraction to the powerful vampire in town It doesn't mean she jumped into bed after meeting him I loved the tension I also felt like this book was similar to watching CSI which I love There are twists interesting suspects and murders to solve Although it's a paranormal Shields does a terrific job of making it seem normal to hang out with a witch and vampires There are other supernatural creatures as well but Shields doesn't belabor the descriptions Ally Shields is an author to watch I try to take off my writer's cap while reading for pleasure It's difficult I can honestly say that I am in awe of her skill in subtle world building snappy and entertaining dialogue and characters I grew to love Speaking of dialogue I laughed a lot at the humorous interactions between Ari and the other characters Shields is highly uotable

Awakening the Fire Guardian Witch #1People start to die and an elusive pack of werewolves threatens the status uo Ari and Ryan are drawn into a web of murder and evil that will lead sworn enemies to a confrontation and while the city simmers around them only Ari can prevent an all out supernatural war. Some authors imagine they can copy the style of a genre such as the fantasy world inhabited by witches vampires werewolves and the like but only manage to fool a few of their readers Not so Ally Shields who has truly mastered the occult nuances of fantasy and gathered together the ingredients for a sound fast moving plot She has added her considerable flair as a wordsmith descriptions in the opening pages of the book were stunning Awakening the Fire is a genuinely exciting story that focuses on Ari the beautiful witch who has been appointed a Guardian by her otherworld community We’ve hardly begun the story when a violent attack on two teens by a werewolf is foiled by her immediate response on their behalf Immediately the author wastes no time to introduce Andreas the sexy but dangerous vampire who features in the story From there we move from one attention grabbing event after another Andreas turning on the charm Andreas verbally dueling with Ryan the human policeman in a verbal dual with Andreas the “collaborator” he does not trust There was a point when I agreed with Sheila that recriminations could have been less freuent but the sheer pace of the tale Ari’s audacity that took her through confrontation after skirmish to the all out attack on Prince Daron’’s encampment convinced me that here was a writing talent that deserves full marks But don’t ask me how I stopped the blood dripping from my fangs as I read
