Strong female leads are something more and more readers are looking for in a good book, and I think there is a fine line between an admirable female lead and one… you want to like but struggle with. In some books, the seems to be going for strong but the female is so unlikable that I cringe inwardly and seldom finish the book.
The Unstoppable Liv Beaufont, however, does not fit this category. She’s likable and a bit snarky but she’s not horrifically mean. She’s an interesting character who’s pulled into a magical world she ran from only to fight battles she wants nothing to do with all the while trying to solve the mystery surrounding the deaths of her parents and siblings. It’s urban fantasy and the story is filled with all the varieties of fantasy creatures living secretly among the humans. From lovesick fae to hippy elves, from dragon eggs to giants raising kittens and werewolf grandmothers to brownies! Not only has Liv pulled me into the series, but the cast of characters adds to the sense of believability the authors have woven into the narrative.
This series is presently on sale for 0.99cents on Amazon. There’s 12 books in the series. Yes, 12! So I haven’t finished the book, but I have finished six of them and have full intentions of finishing the series, but I do need breaks in between books.
