Urban Fantasy Review: Deadshifted by Cassie Alexander

Deadshifted by Cassie Alexander (Edie Spence #4)


Egalley thanks to St. Martin's Paperbacks

Synopsis from Goodreads
Edie Spence just wanted a vacation. A nice, relaxing, stress free, non-adventure away from the craziness that's dominated her life since becoming a nurse for paranormal creatures. But from the start, her trip on the Maraschino, a cruise ship bound for Hawaii, has been anything but stress free, especially when Edie's boyfriend Asher recognizes someone he used to know. Someone from his not-so-nice past. With their lives in the balance, will Edie and Asher be able to save their growing family or will this adventure be their end?

This is one of the few series, my dear readers, where each consecutive book is much stronger than the previous one. Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews is another series that comes to mind.



Cassie Alexander likes shaking things up. Her heroine not only goes from bad to worse, she also changes locations and her situation just when we start feeling comfortable with it. And damn, for a change, this is sooo good!

Deadshifted is one of the best urban fantasies I've read in a while. The whole thing happens on a cruise ship, for God's sake! How fantastic is that?

Archer, Edie's shapeshifter boyfriend surprises her with a romantic cruise to Hawaii, and for once Edie is looking forward to some relaxation time with her steady and suave man candy. However, everything goes to shit pretty quickly when first Archer recognises a villain he dealt with in his previous "incarnation" as one of the guests on the cruise and then kids begin falling ill and die one after another, and the whole cruise ship becomes one eery, dangerous quarantine zone.

With Archer trying to find out what's going on under his guise as a doctor, Edie is left to her own devices with passengers throwing themselves overboard, attacking each other for food or spilling their guts in hot tubs all around her.

Even Edie who is used to all sort of disgusting, horrible things from her job as a nurse is taken aback and is really very afraid.  The death toll goes higher and higher, there is no sign of Archer, and along with a crippled old couple and an orphaned little girl she has to find a way to survive and get off the goddamn cruise ship.

Gripping, suspenseful, scary and with an unbelievable twist in the end, this is a glorious read! Highly recommended, and I honestly cannot wait to see what comes next.

Шикарнейшее городское фэнтези, просто шикарнейшее! Я, честно говоря, последний раз визжала так от восторга когда читала Magic Rises Илоны и Гордона Эндрюс.

Касси Александр одна из немногих авторов жанра, не боящаяся давать своих героиням постоянную встряску, чтобы держать их в форме. Эди не сидит на месте - будь то место работы, новый город или новый бойфренд.

Вот и в этот раз действие всей книги происходит на палубах круиза плывущего на Гавайи.

Оборотень Арчер, которого Эди спасла в прошлой книге, решает удивить свою девушку, и покупает им обоим билеты на круиз. Только вот не успели они провести в романтическом путешествии и ночь, как Арчер встречает злодея, которого он сдал консорциуму в одном из своих предыдущих воплощений, в качестве одного из гостей.

Затем один за другим пассажиры начинают заболевать и умирать от таинственной болезни, и круиз превращается в призрачную, странную и страшную карантинную зону.

Пока Арчер пытается узнать, что происходит, предложив услуги команде в качестве доктора, Эди остаётся в каюте, а вокруг неё люди сходят с ума, прыгают с палуб или в живую варятся в своих ваннах.

Не дождавшись весточки от Арчера она решается разыскать его самого вместе с парочкой пенсионеров и осиротевшей девочкой и свалить со смертоносного круиза во что бы то ни стало.

Книга жуткая, драматичная и держит в напряжении до самого конца, где происходит такой поворт сюжета, что отвисает челюсть. Теперь мне безумно хочется узнать, что же произойдёт с Эди дальше. Читать, обязательно читать!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
