Ivy Cross and the Monarch of Darkness by A.D. Winter
**Presented with an ARC by the author via BookFunnel in exchange for an honest review.**
Versatility and Range
Ivy Cross, like Inuyasha, was orphaned young, and just like that gruff and lovable hanyou, she spent her life fighting to survive. She’s got one hell of a rough exterior, but she’s soft for those she likes. A bit like Mazikeen from DC’s Lucifer (TV show).
The street smarts and wit of Kenzie and Bo from Lost Girl, with the sass of Buffy Summers and Elle Woods, and the sheer grit and determination of Eve Dallas from JD Robb’s ‘In Death’ series, Ivy Cross has it all.
There is so much to love about this Ivy Cross and the Monarch of Darkness. For one, it has such a wide fan base. If you enjoy Dungeons and Dragons, World of Warcraft, The Elder Scrolls, and/or Final Fantasy; you will love this book and the rich, in depth world-building it brings to the table. If you enjoy such masterpieces as Othello, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and/or Cymbeline; you will love this book! And, last but not least, if you’re a fan of Lost Girl, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV series), Leverage—especially Elliot and Parker, Supernatural, Lord of the Rings, Carnival Row, and/or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, you will love this book.
