The Gathering By L.A. Fiore




♦ ♦ ♦



Words like unnatural and impure started the whispers.

From the very beginning, Ivy Blackwood was different. She was only a child when she was accused of setting the fire, one she passively watched engulf the small house she had called home. Her fingertips burned and her hair singed. Some who watched her crossed themselves, convinced she was soulless for she showed no emotion at all. Calm and dispassionate, even when the screaming started that quickly turned to bellows of agony before dying into nothing but the roaring of the fire.

She was locked away where she couldn’t bring harm to herself or others. To all involved, they had protected the world from a monster, but sometimes things are not what they seem.

descriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescription Christ on a cracker this book was all kinds of AWESOME. It also doesn’t really lend itself to my usual review format, so I am going to leave things a little on the vague side. What I will say, is that this book was excellent. The writing was fantastic. It was well paced. The plot was super engaging and original. The setting was perfect. It was atmospheric. It was spooky. The characters (both main and secondary) were well developed. I laughed a little. I cried a little. There was sex. Gods. Goddesses. Vampires. Lycan. Shifters. Witches. Demens. Hellhounds. Ghosts. Fairies. Crumbling plantations. Mental institutions. New Orleans during Mardi gras…and so much more.  
descriptionHonestly, just do yourself a favor and nab this one as soon as it becomes available. I cannot wait to see what the author has up her sleeve for this cast of characters next. Last, I will leave you with my favorite part of the book. I am still laughing over this revelation…

“He lives here.”“The devil lives here?”“Yeah, in Vegas.”“The devil lives in Vegas?” I guess of all the places in the world he could live, Sin City made sense. “Why Vegas?”“He owns the Bellagio.” Of course he did.”
