Detective Docherty and the Demon's Tears
They live among us now, renting apartments, laboring in the work force, and paying taxes. Wo ...more
This was my first read by Sarah and I can't help but feel horrible for not getting to it sooner. I fell in love with the characters almost at first sight and I'm having major withdrawals just thinking about them. This is a paranormal book about other kin and humans living together on Earth, without secrecy. There's still bad blood between some but we get to see a different take on the paranormal and I enjoyed every second of it. We see ho ...more
INTRODUCTION AND PLOT
Imagine waking up one day to find fairies in your backyard and giants on the street. Remember the creatures from fairy tales and folklore you read about when you were a kid but then you grew up and stopped believing in them? Yeah, turns out they were real--and you can see them. You see elves, centaurs, gremlins, goblins, and pixies. Apart from that, you discover that magick (yes, it has a k. I'll explain why in a minute) is real too. Witches exist and so do Wizards and S...more

Loved meeting the main characters, Ares and Alexandria. Their perspectives on Detective Docherty made him seem distant and mysterious at times, yet in moments of interaction with him, provided insights and depth to hi ...more
I loved this book it's brilliantly written and the characters are really good. The story it's self is very different from any books I've read so far and I read a lot usually around 6 books a week so it was wonderful to actually read something so different. Basically it's about a human detective who works with a vampire and witch and they go round solving problems brought on by the waking basically all humans can now see anything supernatural such as fairies elves ect and they sol ...more
I have enjoyed the first book of this series.
A good plot with some twists and turns. I liked the characters but would have loved more detailed description and information of the city were it all took place, bit more history maybe.
On some parts it was very slow and sometimes dragged, because nothing exciting happened. And at the end she could have called him Dad and not Detective. I also found it quite sad what for memory
Not sure if I get the second book.
Well worth five stars , I really enjoyed reading this book. All the different supernatural creatures and the slightly dotty detective. Murder and a touch of mayhem with a little bit of romance thrown in. I couldn't put this book down until I'd finished reading it.
I think the vampire is a whiny brat and I was rooting for the sexy elf to teach him to GET OVER HIMSELF, but Alex and Detective Docherty were very human and charming. The plot had nice momentum.
I won’t say that I didn’t enjoy this, because I did. Yet the pacing was a bit off, and it dragged in places and waffled about in others. However, the plot, characters and the world building were interesting so I guess I’ll be picking up book two to find out what happens with Alex, Ares and the Detective.
3 stars ⭐️
The characters are deeply drawn and power the story. They are dimensioned, we know them and care for them. Though not fast the story keeps us engaged. The story's universe is creative but respectful to the lexicon.
I may well but another in the series.
Visit Toronto and meet Detective Docherty. Get involved in his case along with his niece who meets him for the first time. Along with his assistant Ares, a vampire, the detective works exclusively on cases involving fairies and otherkin. Jump into this world and stay for a while!
