RELEASE DAY + BOOK REVIEW: "Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia" by Elle Boca
Sworn to protect the secrets of their race, marshals are trained to police Weeia hiding among humans. After completing her advanced marshal training, Danni is blown away by her new plum assignment to Paris. But, all is not well in the City of Lights; the offices are a shambles, her boss is apathetic, and her predecessors died under mysterious circumstances; it’s almost like somebody doesn’t want the law there. Despite that she risks her life in the seedy underworld of gypsies and tramps to search for a missing Weeia man.
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I have read works by Ms. Boca before, but none of her previous books can match the skill with which Gypsies was written.
We have a great female lead, Danni, who has a unique mission to patrol for fantastic creatures which masquerade amongst humans. She's a likable character, very easy to get to know as the book wears on.
The creatures in the book are different from many other books I have been reading lately. They are interesting to read about, and their novelty is a big part of what kept me reading this book.
The main character, to me, was not Danni, but the city of Paris. The sights, sounds, and underground of Paris plays a big part in the narrative, and it gave the story a very nice background.
I really liked this book, and I am excited to read more.
5/5--fun and novel.
