Book Review:  Fang and Claw by Markie Madden

I received an ARC of “Fang and Claw” to read and review. It is scheduled for release this weekend and is available for preorder on Amazon.Fang & Claw Markie Madden cover

“Fang and Claw” is a paranormal suspense crime novel taking place over a hundred years in the future. Immortals have merged into mainstream society, living and working openly among humans. There still some prejudices among humans and supernaturals alike, but society is becoming more accepting of inter-species associations.

In this story Lacey, a vampire, and Colton, a werewolf, are partnered for heading up a new unit in the Dallas Police Department that specializes in crimes involving immortals. They are given a series of dissimilar crimes that both feel are related. Their investigation to link the crimes and find the perpetrator leads them to both personal and professional discoveries.

There is a lot of tension in interpersonal relationships plus police action.  It is apparent the author has done a great deal research. Her depiction of law enforcement protocals is realistic. She has a good grasp of how communication technologies may evolve and the way they are utilized in  this book for police investigations are believable.

The story is well written, though I did find a few typographical errors in the ARC. None of those errors made the reading difficult and were easy to interpret the meaning.

I enjoyed the book and recommend it to readers who enjoy paranormal or crime novels. I give it a five star rating for the excellent writing plus good character and plot development.

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
