The Satyr’s Curse by Alexandrea Weis

I have become a big fan of Alexandrea’s work in the last year, and The Satyr’s Curse is no exception.  Set in New Orleans, this novel blends aspects of romance and paranormal perfectly.  I think my only complaint at this point would be I need more!  Fast paced action, vivid details, multi-dimensional characters, a story line that doesn’t quit, with a fantastic cliffhanger ending, really, who could ask for more?
There are so many parts of this book that I could spend hours talking about, but if I did that then I would give the entire story away, and let’s be frank, that is definitely not my thing. 
I honestly sat down and started reading this as soon as I got it.  I finished it within two days.  I felt like I was back in New Orleans walking through the French Quarter or the Garden District, places I remember fondly from a vacation many years ago.  The main character runs a restaurant and the description of the place and the food made me want to jump in my car and go try it out.  That’s pretty vivid if you ask me.  Every time I think that this author just can’t possibly get any better, BAM, she proves me wrong.  And if this is being wrong, then please do not let me be right!  I can’t wait to see where the author takes this story, as I am now hooked, wondering how this sinister tale will ultimately play out.  Here’s hoping she doesn’t keep up waiting long!  I hope you check out the latest by this author, and make sure to enter the giveaway below!
