Bitten


5/5 STARS

The City of Pinton has never been safe... and now a serial killer is on the loose.

Doctor Alice Reive is the city's coroner, and she's determined to help find the murderer.

Enlisting the assistance of the Honorable Dante Kipling and city guard Elle Brown, they race to track down the killer, before another victim dies.

Hannah Romanov - Dante's missing twin sister - has spent hundreds of years living on an isolated mountain. But her quiet life is thrown into chaos after she discovers a baby left in the wilds to die. Hannah will do anything to ensure the infant's survival, even if it means travelling to the worst place in the world for her - Pinton.

Bitten is the second novel in the Graced series, which also has two novellas at present. Every time I pick up and read a piece of Pillar’s work, I'm instantly enthralled. Pillar captivates readers with the intriguing world and species she has created in her unique universe.

Bitten provided us with new and intriguing characters along with much-loved originals. You travel with a number of characters throughout the novel and I honestly love it; you're not stuck with the same character throughout.

I am in awe of the way Pillar develops the characters and the individual personality traits they all have. From psychopaths to motherly, happy go lucky to shy characters, Pillar covers it all in this novel.

The plot progresses at a satisfying pace, never slow and boring. There is always something happening, but not necessarily action-wise, and the dialog between characters keeps you flicking through the pages entertained and demanding more. Pillar’s writing is witty, filled with sarcasm and is just brilliant.

The icing on the cake for me is the creation of a new species of supernatural beings: "the Graced". It is such a breath of fresh air in the supernatural world.

Fans of vampires, werewolves and anything supernatural will fall in love with Bitten and the Graced world.

Already eagerly awaiting the release of the next instalment in this series.

**I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
