Danielle Paglia I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has a wonderful cast of characters, a fantastical world, and a lovably testy main character. The writing had a strong voice that instantly drew me into the story. The mc, Abby Sinclair, is a blend of wit and sarcasm without coming off too snarky or bitchy. She also has some very real, dark issues buried in her past. She's a fighter, but also has a deep vulnerability that makes her feel real and accessible.

I love that the focus of the book isn't on just one set of mythical creatures, but that all seem to be represented equally from werewolves and vampires, to angels and demons, to fairies and even an irresistible, horny, miniature unicorn. A Brush of Darkness is fun, sexy, and romantic, with a heap of ass-kicking, blended into a mystery that kept me turning the pages until well past my bedtime.
