Sink your teeth into this irresistible forbidden romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy about the vampire Warden of Charleston and the new-in-town witch who's causing him all kinds of trouble…
Willa Farrington's magic is broken. Shunned by her coven for failing to pass the Summer Solstice Rite, Willa escapes to the one place no witch belongs – Charleston, a city that belongs to vampires. Determined to embrace her new life, Willa opens Cauldron Boil Books, and unexpectedly finds some friends among the vampires…
Until one terrible night Willa ends up on the wrong side of a pair of fangs. Thankfully, her captor's plan is ruined when Killian Constantine, the drop-dead gorgeous Warden of Charleston, shows up to save her. But just when Willa thinks she's safe, Killian, rumored to be the most feared vampire in the city, furiously demands to know why she – a witch – telepathically called him for help.
Intent on finding answers, the two embark on a journey to unravel the mystery behind Willa's attack and their unusual connection. As they get closer to the truth, the fiery passion between them ignites. But their forbidden romance isn't making them many friends, and just as Willa starts to think that her entire existence is a lie, deadlier forces come out of the shadows. She will need to believe in her malfunctioning magic, trust bloodthirsty vampires, and cross her fingers that she and Killian make it out together… and that neither end up dead.
What the Fang - Great start to this new series
Yes, Stacey has a great start on this new series.
I enjoyed learning about Willa, Killian, and both of their pasts. Throw in Ambrose, Willa’s tiny dragon, and her bestest friends, Gwen and Finnick, this was a great story.
You just never knew what Finnick is going to say and Gwen was a true best friend to Willa. They both have Willa’s back until bad things start happening around Willa and then Killian is called to help her. Other people join Willa and Killian in the search to discover what is going on and in the process Willa discovers who she truly is.
I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.
I want to give this review with the caveat that I’m not normally a fan of paranormal romance. I can read it sometimes if I’m really interested in the story or the characters but it doesn’t happen that often.
After all of that, I want to express how much I loved reading What the Fang! Let’s start with the cover. It’s adorable and for some reason made me think of Bewitched. So that drew me in first, followed closely by the title, and finally the blurb. Everything about it made me want to devour it. And devour it I did.
I read it in less than a day and was so sad that I came upon the end. Not only did I really enjoy the main characters, but I also fell in love with the supporting characters. I want a dragon just like Ambrose or at least a pet that acts just like him. Killian was the brooding alpha on the outside but you could just see what Willa did to him without even trying and she had to figure it out on her own. While it does end with an HFN, the ending leads into the next book without it being a cliffhanger really. I’m sad I have to wait so long for its release but I know it’ll be worth it. Hoping to get more of Willa and Killian’s relationship as it continues.
