A dead body, black magic, and a vampire enforcer...

Ari thought her biggest problem was deciding if she should move in with her vampire boyfriend, Andreas. That was before they found the dead body at the bottom of the Riverdale cliffs. And before she realized he'd been cursed by black magic.

Just as she begins the murder investigation, the vampire rulers in Europe send an

So I have some small issues with this book/series..
“I ordered the guards as a precaution. I did not want you left alone.” His gaze softened. “I came with them because I wanted to see you.”

My man, Andreas, please, I beg of you, become more dominant!! I love you so fucking much, so please become.. more?! More alpha, more arrogant, more ... wild?! Yeah, and perhaps, become a bit bad-boy and badass..
She smiled in spite of her uneasiness. “Ditto. You tell Daron I’ll hold him personally

Ally Shields has done it again. I think this one tops my list as my favorite in the Guardian Witch series. It has a bit of everything... mystery, intrigue, romance, character development, battle... and more.

When the mysterious death of a treasure hunter points to black magic, Guardian Witch Ari Calin jumps into action. The investigation turns tricky when evidence of dark magic, ghostly apparitions, and ancient folklore get mixed together... add in a vengeful vampire enforcer, and a complicated

Need to digest this a bit more and possibly re-read it. The ending made the book for me.

Book 4 of the Guardian Witch series and Ally Shields done it again. This is honestly one of my favourite series and one that I hope has more to come. Arianna and Andreas are once again thrown into the midst of turmoil... a vampire enforcer has arrived from the vampire rulers in Europe to check into the recent defeat of the ruler in Toronto. Add to this black magic, a Native American artifact that everyone seems to want to find and a new roommate... This book is full of adventure and paranormal ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review, and I absolutely loved it! Ari, a fire witch, works with the local Magic Counsel as a Guardian. She is linked with a human, Ryan, police officer and together they are trying to solve the mysterious death of a celebrity treasure hunter. Ari's her Vampire Prince boyfriend, Andreas, is also involved in the investigation, because it happened in the vampire's territory. Native American artifacts, dark magic witch covens, and an evil ancient ...more

I'm enjoying the series, but Ari is straight up dumb. She keeps confronting stronger and smarter enemies all by herself with little more than her witch fire, which she constantly reminds us is only used in defense. Whatever, I'll keep reading but I wish I could like her more.

Up until this point I do think this is some of Ally's best work. I still need to read the next book and the series - which I am quite excited about and I am sure it will be just as good!

Blood & Fire has a very smooth star. It is not shocking but not boring either. Blood and Fire starts off with finding a body and they initially think its a suicide but soon suspect its a murder. A few more angles get waved into the story and keeps you on the edge of your seat as more complications arise.

*I received this book free from Red Moon Book Tours in exchange for an honest review*

Andreas is now Prince of Riverdale and all he wants is for his little witch to move in with him so he can keep her close and protected, but Ari is quite independent and if her safety wasn't involved I'm not sure she'd ever even consider agreeing. He, on the other hand, can be quite persuasive in getting his way.

"Still angry with me? Don't be," he whispered, melting her irritation away. "I only want to keep you

Arianna is a strong, independent fire witch who has come a long way since she first started working as the Guardian of Riverdale. Ari is once again being pulled in two different directs with two mysteries to solve, are they at all connected? This book has Black Magic and Vampire Enforcers from the O-Seven. The mysteries unfolds in a logical way that puts all the pieces together at the end while still laying the ground work for the next installment (nicely done Ally). There wasn’t much action ...more

Series is not improving with time. Damn, Twilight has a lot to answer for, hopefully if burning books takes on again that will be the first.

Pressure from Europe is coming in hot and it is not looking good for our favorite witch heroine in this next installment.

Ally Shields still has me wrapped up in the life of Ari and her friends.
