Sheep Book Review: Nine of Stars by Laura Bickle + Giveaway

Nine of Stars (A Wildlands Novel)
by Laura Bickle
December 27, 2016
ISBN: 9780062437662
Genre: Contemporary Fantasy
Publisher: Harper Voyager
Following on the heels of her critically acclaimed prequel novels Dark Alchemy and Mercury Retrograde comes the first installment in Laura Bickle’s dark contemporary fantasy series, Nine of Stars, a Wildlands Novel

Winter has always been a deadly season in Temperance, but this time, there’s more to fear than just the cold…

As the daughter of an alchemist, Petra Dee has faced all manner of occult horrors—especially since her arrival in the small town of Temperance, Wyoming. But she can’t explain the creature now stalking the backcountry of Yellowstone, butchering wolves and leaving only their skins behind in the snow. Rumors surface of the return of Skinflint Jack, a nineteenth-century wraith that kills in fulfillment of an ancient bargain.

The new sheriff in town, Owen Rutherford, isn’t helping matters. He’s a dangerously haunted man on the trail of both an unsolved case and a fresh kill—a bizarre murder leading him right to Petra’s partner Gabriel. And while Gabe once had little to fear from the mortal world, he’s all too human now. This time, when violence hits close to home, there are no magical solutions.

It’s up to Petra and her coyote sidekick Sig to get ahead of both Owen and the unnatural being hunting them all—before the trail turns deathly cold.

If you don't know this author, or her series, get your fingers clicking to add this book to your ecollection pronto. I am absolutely hooked on this saga to the point of no return! It's vampire free but hey, I'm actually totally 100% okay with that.

Laura Bickle once again brings the deep rooted mystery and high flying fantasy with her latest installment. This series is soaked in the magic and almost elementally mystical side of life. The abundant amount of colorful characters will drag you in and wont let go. I know this for a fact since I dream about them at night! Yeah, sounds crazy but I don't care!

There's love on so many levels brought out throughout Nine of Stars. Heartache and twists that left me with a gaping mouth just hanging open catching flies. I thought I knew what was coming....I was wrong. So, so wrong. Action and adventure just add to the overall plot, creating texture and layers of masterful realness. I can not tell you how much I freaking LOVE this writer.

If any big-wig is looking to make a movie or TV series, I would put all my money on this one. I could see this being the next big HBO hit tomorrow. BUT start from the beginning of this saga, there is waaaaaaay too much you will miss out on if you don't!

Getting all the Sheep we have!
