REVIEWED BY Becky Cox
The Mediator, an adult urban fantasy, was a thrill ride. Lots of action, quick wit and sexual tension.
Jade is a Mediator for the Human Office between the different factions, mostly trying to protect the halflings. She is badass, intuitive and has a very entertaining wittiness. She might not be altogether human. She encounters numerous different shifters, demons and other species.
The authors description of the world she has created is well done and revealed at appropriate times where it isn’t an overload of information. She gave me enough to understand where Jade was and what she was seeing, where I felt I was there with her. I was never overwhelmed or felt the need to skim. I absorbed each word and enjoyed.
I am dying to get my hands on the next book to see how her lust interest(s) may play out. Jacks has woven a great web of mystery and battles for power between different species leaders. All her characters are interesting and not always what they seem at first blush.
The Mediator is urban fantasy with some dystopia and paranormal. I truly enjoyed this read and look forward to the next installment. This is my first book by this author. I am not sure if it is her debut novel or a new pen name, but she does great work and I look forward to more.
I was provided a copy for an honest review.
