Demons in My Driveway (Monster Haven #5)
by R.L. NaquinMy Review
I'm a little freaked out because as I write this, I know that the next book will be the last, and I'm gunna cry! I flipping love this series. I've become so attached to these characters!! I love them, and their story! But anywho, Zoey is always in trouble. And this time, it's a big deal. Zoey finally has her mom back, BUT all the other Aegis are being murdered and it's gunna cause the apocalypse, literally. They hold the human world separate from the supernatural world so if they die, we all die. Yep, this one is a little darker than the last few, but it's coming down to the nitty gritty and it's on.
So, Zoey goes with Bernice across the pond to Europe to a convention for the supernatural world. And as it turns out, she really really should have stayed home. She finds out that someone is murdering every single last one of the Aegis and she's on the hit list, as well as her mom. And if she's in danger, than so are all of her friends and the people she protects. And to make matters worse, with all of the deaths in the US with the supernatural government, it's not just us, but all of the countries are loosing their government folk, and man is everyone getting all crazy.
Zoey is changing. She's getting more aggressive in her stance of, "you will no longer walk all over me". She's still so willing to help those in need, but she won't take any more BS from anyone. And she's stuck over her break up with Riley, I mean hell, I'm heartbroken too. Her and her mom don't see eye to eye, and her BFF Sara and Maurice and Stacy seem to have a very troubled love triangle that Zoey can't help fix. Plus, there's this new government dude coming around and Zoey just doesn't like him. And to make matters worse, there's so much suspicion on who's really helping the bad guys take out all the good guys.
So, I will not give away spoilers, but let me just say that I am loving the action with all of the other characters. Maurice has his own drama with an ex wife, his love for Sara, his oblivion to Stacy's love for him, and he's totally stressed over all the death threats of Zoey and her mom. Sara is trying to deal with the consequences left by the damn evil Incubus and what he did to her, while trying to make sure to be there for Zoey. Zoey's mom is well, just different, and I like a little kick ass in my women, and she really isn't. I know she doesn't mean to, but I don't like how she makes Zoey doubt so much of herself. Darius is awesome. Riley is awesome. Kam, OMG I cried for her, but she is also awesome. Andrew and his boyfriend have the coolest pet in Milo, and now they have Howard, who is hilarity at its best and is a great addition. We will also meet the queen of the Demons, who I happened to love, the king of Vampers, which makes me giggle with all his bling and chest hair, and the alpha pair of the were-folk. See, the characters surrounding Zoey are so fantastic. And I love them just as much as I love her, but I can't tell you things about them directly without ruining something from the book :) Just read this series ok!
The plot is fantastic!! I can't grasp how this author comes up with these things, but I love that she does. And I so love how Zoey brings out the best in people. :) The writing is always magnificent, and I really am sad that things are ending soon. Really sad. But I am so glad I have read this series. So with that, I will say that this is one of my favorite series, ever, and I think you should read it, like for really! 5 MAGNIFICENT PAWS!! :)
A huge thank you for NetGalley and Carina Press who have let me read this whole series!!!
I hope you guys check this series out! I love it so much!! Happy reading and later gators!!
