Review # 117: Maggie For Hire by Kate Danley

Description:
     Maggie MacKay is a tracker; she has the ability to cross between dimensions and track down the monsters that want to start trouble in the human world. So when Killian, a messenger from the Elf Queen, shows up with a job - stopping a group of vampires from using humans as juice boxes - Maggie can't turn down the opportunity to kick some blood-sucking butt. Unfortunately, her family is more entwined with the inter-dimensional brawl than she realizes, and the only way to stop the madness is to find a couple magical objects and unleash a secret that could put everyone - and everything - in danger. With the help of Killian, her family, and a few otherworldly allies, can Maggie find the relics and stop the approaching apocalypse? Or will the world end with her neck on the chopping block?
Review:

    After seeing the cover art and reading the blurb, how could someone not want to read this book?! I have always been a fan of the otherworldly, especially when it involves a no-holds-barred heroine who doesn't take any B.S.  from anyone - or anything, and can dole out a mean arse-kicking. That's why I loved Maggie For Hire! Maggie is a great character; well-developed, strong-willed, and full of attitude. She reminds me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but more sure of herself and less fragile. The plot is action-packed, full of gory detail, and overflowing with the "unladylike behavior" promised on the back cover. I had a lot of fun reading, and was surprised that it was over so fast. The chapters were a nice short length, and the dialogue was fun and feisty. I only wish that I would have taken my time so there would be more to read! I hope that there is a sequel because Kate Danley is one heck of a writer! Recommended to older teens and adults who want pulse-pounding paranormal action that will leave them craving more!

Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)

*** I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
