Jumping the Shark (Paranormal Talent Agency, #5)Jumping the Shark by Heather Silvio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about change. Barbara Knollman is getting ready for the electoral campaign for mayor. However, things are turned on a head when a bus carrying the candidates to a venue is involved in an accident. With only one other candidate alive, Barbara grows suspicious. Can she prove that he did it before its too late?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Barbara determined but with her doubts underneath. I loved how she was given her time to shine in this novel as a main character instead of on the sidelines. Great cast of supporting characters like the kind Liam or the concerned Lynn.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with Barbara’s house with its comfy chairs and tables, using small spaces for scenes of tension and conflict perfectly written. Or the scenes with the accident with the wrecked bus and blue lights so vivid its as if you’re actually there.
Once again, a wonderful example of world buidling with fantasy creatures coexisting alongside humanity with their own rules and laws and societies. A wonderful example of building upon the sequel with more fantasy creatures such as angels and demons and archangels true to their origins and given the respect they deserve. I loved the idea of them having powers and that angels could be ordinary people instead of being descended from gods as usually seen in fangasy novels.
The combination of the demons of fabtays and realism of politics made for a captivating read. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars
