Bennett Andrews has been sent by the Darke Collective, a band of supernaturals hunting dangerous mythical objects at the direction of an ancient dragon, to find the deadly red shoes before some poor dancer puts them on and dances to her death. He’s too late to keep dancer Peeraphan Rahttana from putting them on—but he’s not too late to save her. All he’ll have to do is get her to accept that she’s every bit as mythical as those shoes—and that she’s capable of more magic than she ever believed in. Combining fairy-tale artifacts with mythical creatures and paranormal heroes and villains, this first book in the “Mythwoven” series sets up an urban fantasy world where the vampires and werewolves are the least unusual members of a band of treasure hunters bent on protecting the world. The budding romance between vampire Bennett and kinnaree (legendary Thai bird princess) Peeraphan gives the story its heart and provides readers with an entrée into a fascinating new series.
VERDICT Drake’s (Fighting Kat) new novel is highly recommended for lovers of fantasy romance and urban fantasy rooted in myths and legends.
