What happens in the Zone stays in the Zone.
Boyfriend from Hell, the first book in the Saturn’s Daughters Series, is the latest release from multi-talented author Pat Rice under the pseudonym, Jamie Quaid. It is a delightful, quirky urban fantasy and draws you in from page one with its crazy characters and spunky heroine.
Law student Justine (Tina) Clancy is living in Baltimore in an area known as the Zone. After a radioactive accident the blighted area now has glow–in-the-dark buildings, moving statues and people with interesting abilities. When Tina damns her boyfriend, Max, to hell as he apparently tries to run her over, that’s exactly what happens. Now someone is stalking Tina through the streets of the Zone, bugging her apartment and generally making her simple, quiet life a misery. Tina finds solace in her friends: a biker gang, a private detective who uses snakes in an unusual way, a friendly cop and her newly adopted kitten. Did I mention an invisible thief?
Tina discovers she is apparently one of Saturn’s Daughters. She has no idea what that means until she finds out she has the power to mete out vigilante justice. Of course, she doesn’t understand how it works. The fun comes through trial and error. Mostly error. Causing a tornado in front of the funeral home with just a thought? Oops.
In between trying to getting Max out of hell and talking to him through mirrors, fighting her attraction for her sexy new boss, and figuring out what is threatening the Zone, she is studying for her finals. Could life get any more complicated? Of course, it does, and that’s what makes this book so much fun!
Tina is a heroine you want to root for. She struggles with her newfound paranormal abilities but inherently wants to do the right thing. Finding out she can send people to hell isn’t something she takes lightly or accepts easily.
I loved this book! I can’t wait for the next book in the series and am really looking forward to seeing the romance between Tina and Andre heat up. And, of course, to see what trouble Tina will get into in the fantastical world of the Zone.
