51) Golem in my Glovebox by R.L. Naquin

The Blurb :

In her role as Aegis, Zoey Donovan has rescued and cared for hundreds of monsters and mythical creatures. Now humans are the ones in need of her help. Someone with a personal vendetta against the Board of Hidden Affairs has kidnapped all the other Aegises in the country--including Zoey's mother.

With the Hidden government in shambles and a string of deadly clues to follow, Zoey and her reaper boyfriend set out on a cross-country chase to stop the kidnapper from killing the captured Aegises. Along the way, they pick up a miniature golem who's on a quest to find his humanity...and may be the key to solving the grisly clues.

If Zoey succeeds in defeating this new evil, she'll finally be reunited with the mother she lost over twenty years ago. But if she fails, she'll become the final victim.

My Thoughts :

I have been too distracted, tired and busy to read lately and my to be read pile would have fallen over if it wasn't digital!  So it was time to at least get one review book off the pile and this was the next one up.  I have been following the Monster Haven series ever since I came across the first installment, Pooka in my Pantry, and have been enjoying the story, characters and very interesting paranormal elements.

This fourth part in the series takes the main character and her partner on the road.   An interesting development that I wasn't really expecting but there was good reason and it made for great reading.  The whole story this time around came across as more mature and well thought out.  The writing style is the same but I got the feeling that the author has found her flow.  Golem in my Glovebox really shines above the other books and I finally felt like things were being taken more seriously now.

There are quite a few developments in this new addition to the Monster Haven series and I very pleased with the progress made and enjoyed the story a lot.  Now that Zoey knows more about the Hidden I know more about the Hidden and together the whole adventure is much more fun and definitely more interesting.  The author has used a wide variety of paranormal elements and it makes for great reading.  I wonder what else she has up her sleeve and look forward to finding out.

You can't really go wrong with this series and it is certainly worth a try.  As the series continues I find it is beginning to feel more like a Paranormal Urban Fantasy than just a Paranormal cozy/romance/comedy/mystery.  I am glad I picked up this fourth part and I will be keeping my eye out for the next installment.

Great review Amber, glad the series is getting better. One day I will read it ... And I certainly can relate to being too tired, not able to concentrate and too busy to read.
