Deadlier By The Dozen is Marcia's Colette's latest release. And I say last release because Marcia is a prolific author. Her prior releases The Spider Inside Her and Bittersweet were also released this year. This is how I like my authors to roll. And I absolutely love the cover.

Deadlier By The Dozen is an adult Urban Fantasy. It is also book two in the Dark Encounters series. You won't find any werewolves or vampires in this one but, I promise my Urban Fantasy will not be disappointed.

From the beginning, this story is shot out of a gun putting the main character Mackenzie Lawson in emanate danger. I love Mackenzie's progression over the course of this book. She has to transition from everyday average citizen to kick ass if she is going to survive.

Marcia paints characters so real I have to peek out my door and down the hall to make sure one of them isn't standing in wait for me. I asked Marcia if she would mine if I did a review. She was fine with it. But, I know she is wondering where is it?

Well, when I read a story that I absolutely love, I have a little ritual I follow. First, I can't read anything else for a couple of days because if done right, the characters stick with me for a couple of days. I call it marinating on the story. That's what I had to do before putting up this review.

The pacing of DBTD was perfect for me. It's definitely a page turner. I read it in 2.5 days. I couldn't put it down. I picked it up and thought, I'm reading another fav author right now so, I'll just read a chapter then finish my other book. Nope. I couldn't stop reading. She hooked me from the first.

No offense intended but, you've got to be a pretty damn good writer to get me to stop reading Kelly Gay, one of my favorite writers. Wait, does that mean Marcia has moved up on the fav author list!

I promised I wouldn't give away the story so I have to talk in general terms. But, let's just say Mackenize turns out to be a bad ass.

If you want to add an awesome author to you TBR list, look no further. Marcia Colette delivers.

Other books by Marcia:

The Spider Inside Her is another great book!

I really enjoyed this one too.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Marcia will jump back in to Alexa's world!

Last but not least, this is the first book I ever read by Marcia. It's a paranormal romance. I normally don't do romance but, Marcia mixed enough romance, urban fantasy and kick ass to keep me very happy:)

That's my review. Deadlier By The Dozen earns 5 out of 5 Vamp Teeth
