Are my heroines sexy? Hell yes, but what defines Ivy, her partner Jinx, and their Hunter friend Jenna is their strength of character…and their willingness to put their own lives on the line, and kick some monster ass, to defend the weak and innocent.
And they’re not the only ones.
Ivy has the help of the kelpie king Ceffyl Dwr with his trident and water magic, the cat sidhe lord Torn with his network of spies and his lust for violence (if only to break the monotony of immortality), Forneus with his demonic strength, and Kaye with her witch magic. Even the young bridge troll Marvin joins the fight, armed only with a pixie nest and a desire to save other faerie children from the kind of abuse he suffered before befriending Ivy and Kaye.
With such powerful friends, it must be easy to protect the city of Harborsmouth, right? Not. A. Chance. Located on a nexus point, Harborsmouth attracts its fair share of rogue vampires, flesh eating ghouls, and psychotic faeries.
Too bad the monsters aren’t the only thing Ivy Granger has to worry about.
With emerging powers and a larger than usual number of supernatural clients, even for Harborsmouth, Ivy must face the possibility that everything she’d believed about herself was a lie. If so, she may not have to look far to find evil lurking in the shadows.
She might just be one of the monsters.
That fear, and an inability to touch objects without experiencing visions, can make Ivy uptight, and a bit of a hard ass. She’s hyper vigilant, always struggling for control, and painfully aware of looming threats.
Watching her lose control, and unleash all of that pent up emotion on her enemies, is a very, very beautiful thing.
Of course, she didn’t begin the series with combat skills and awesome power at her disposal. I’m not that nice to my characters. Ivy had to work hard to overcome her fears. Jinx and Ivy had to train under the stern eye of Jenna, a highly skilled member of the local Hunters’ Guild. But just when Jinx was demonstrating a knack for firing a crossbow, and Ivy was becoming proficient with throwing knives, Jenna was shipped off to Bruges, Belgium.
Luckily for those of us who enjoy a good fight scene, Bruges is infested with fae and the undead. Plus, Jenna has issues of her own to work through–issues that she takes out on the local population of vampires, with her sword.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
As for Ivy, well, you’re in for one Hell of a thrill ride in BIRTHRIGHT. Ivy, Ceff, and Torn must face demons, Celtic gods, and mischievous fae on their trip through the Otherworld, but what Ivy faces in Faerie is the most terrifying of all.
Sharpen your blades and grab some cold iron, because if Ivy makes it out of Faerie alive, she might not enter the human world alone.
…Or you could get naked. The choice is up to you.
How would you face a horde of bloodthirsty fae?
Still wondering, Stomp vs Romp?
Watch this AMAZING fight scene from Marvel’s Daredevil.
Birthright (Ivy Granger #4) by E.J. Stevens
Being a faerie princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be…
Ivy must go to Faerie, but the gateway to the Wisp Court is through Tech Duinn, the house of Donn—Celtic god of the dead. Just her luck.
Unable to share her secret with Jinx, and with Jenna called away on Hunters’ Guild business, Ivy must rely on Ceff and Torn to lead her to Death’s door, literally, and back again. As if that wasn’t dangerous enough, there’s no saying what horrors lay in store within the Faerie realm. Too bad the Wisp Court is the one lead Ivy has in the search for her father—and possible salvation.
Maybe hiding away and dodging sidhe assassins isn’t so bad after all…

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
