Review: Left Hand Magic – Nancy A. Collins

Located on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Golgotham has been the city’s supernatural neighborhood for centuries. Populated by countless creatures from myth and legend, the neighborhood’s most prominent citizens are the Kymera, a race of witches who maintain an uneasy truce with New York City’s humans…

Tate Eresby has accepted the unusual sights and sounds of Golgotham and made it her home. Unfortunately, a magazine has alerted trendsetting hipsters to its existence and they’ve descended upon the community-along with an anti-Kymera faction known as The Sons of Adam. The sudden influx of tourists escalates racial tensions to a boiling point when two Kymerans are murdered and rioting fills the streets.
My thoughts:
A series that got even better with book 2, I do love when that happens.
In this one things are heating up between humans and, well non-humans. Tate is in the middle of it all as she lives in Golgatham. Yes Tate, I do like her cos she is not kick-ass, neither is she a damsel in distress. She is just your average kind of human who loves to make things in her studio. She has a warlock boyfriend and she is very curious. Yes that puts her in trouble too. I do love kick-ass heroines, but it’s a nice change to have someone like Tate. She also puts all her faith in love, because when things got tricky in Golgatham, well I would have left. It was scary there for a long moment of the book.
Oh look I made this short πŸ˜€
Conclusion:
A great series, that I do recommend.

    I love a series that gets better as it goes as well, there's nothing more disappointing than loving a first book and then having that love fade as more books come out:)

    I agree that it's a nice change of pace to have a heroine that doesn't totally kick ass, but she's also not helpless. Just a normal gal. Gives me hope that I might survive an UF book if I were thrown into one! πŸ™‚ Definitely adding this to my UF wish list. Great review!
