Embrace the Night (Cassandra Palmer, #3)Embrace the Night by Karen Chance

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


In another review I read, the main complaint was that this is chicklit. It made me laugh, because I consider a large amount of Urban Fantasy books to be chicklit with fangs. I am often conflicted if I should class them as fantasy or as romance. Just the fact that the main characters are mostly female and have issues with dark, mysterious strangers that they first hate, but then fall madly in love with should be a major tip-off!

Coming across Urban Fantasy with a good, solid plot and a heroine with brains can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. Very often the plot takes a backseat to romance and steamy sex. Not that I mind the steamy sex, it's a nice bonus. But I prefer my books plot driven with some suspense, lots of action and well fleshed out characters.
