Devil’s Backbone by T. Birmingham
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
What a great read. The characters were all fantastically written, the story line, interesting and entertaining and the fantastical world they live in, wonderful.
Tess and Ben are such a great couple. She is self conscious about her appearance because of scars she receives from her family years prior. Tess is a strong, courageous woman but a little on the shy side. I feel like she doesn’t think she is an asset to anyone in her life, but in reality everyone loves her and appreciates all that she does at The Lodge and Ben thinks she is beautiful regardless of her appearance and wants to be with her.
It is aggravating that Ben doesn’t just fess up and tell Tess his feelings until he is pushed to when he has to move back “home” to protect the people of the Lodge, especially Tess. It is a relief when the two finally share their attraction and feelings for one another and team up to find the murderer.
This is a good read, I enjoyed the action and the love connection between the two main characters. I would definitely recommend this book to any paranormal lover. This book can be read as a stand alone, but why would you when the other books in the series are fantastic as well?
