Dianne
A dedicated, new Weeia Marshal, the stars are still in Danni’s eyes. She has visions of capturing the bad guys and keeping the world safe while keeping humans blissfully ignorant of the Weeia around them. When she receives her first posting in Paris, she discovers there is more to the City of Lights than meets the eye, including the nightmare her new home base is. Alone in a strange country, determined to be a good Marshal and frightfully aware of her weight, appearance and gruff manner, life is ...more

Thanks to Elle Boca for giving this book to review.

Danni has completed her training to become a marshal, the police sworn to protect Weeia hiding among humans, and is surprised to receive a good assignment in Paris. However, when she gets there Danni discovers that not all is as she was expecting, with an apathetic boss, an office in shambles and her predecessor Marshals dying under mysterious circumstances. Despite the risks, Danni is determined to do her job, even if some in Paris believe they

When Boca finished her Unlemoija series, I wondered what direction she'd take next. Her Marshal series was a pleasant surprise. It continues building on her imaginative Weeia world, in a way that makes perfect sense. The story continuity alone is impressive, but Boca also manages to throw in a remarkable new heroine. One who's only too human, despite being a Weeia - and one that emerges all the stronger because of it. From her filthy tobacco-chewing to her occasionally irrational behavior, Danni ...more

Boca mixes the shock of moving to a new culture, the frustration of being a cop with a boss who won’t support them, and an urban fantasy world that isn’t filled with the usual creatures to create a tale of magical investigation that is driven by character rather than special effects.

Near identical but gifted with magical abilities, Weeia have always lived among humans in secret. The Marshals exist both to capture criminals and ensure the secret remains. When Danni is offered a placement in Paris

Elle Boca is the prolific author of seven books about Weeia, and three in the Marshalls series, of which this is the first. Although I have not read the previous books, it was easy to immerse myself in this one.
The Weeia look like normal humans but they possess special powers for the sole purpose of protecting humans and Weeia alike. Their lifespan is longer than humans, but they are subject to the same dangers. Marshalls are trained to police Weeia hiding among humans.
At the opening of this st

This book follows Danni who just became a level 3 Marshal for Weeia. She gets a post in Paris to help police the Weeia. Danni experiences some setbacks when she arrives in Paris such as a bad living situation and a boss who is MIA. Danni then works hard to prove herself as the new marshal in town.

I loved Danni as a character. The author did a great job creating a whole new world regarding Weeia and it was very easy to follow along with. Danni was a very interesting character she obviously had

A paranormal coming of age story!

The main characters is a slightly self conscious young woman who receives an excellent job opportunity, much to her surprise! There is a lot a back story unexplained, what happened to her family and why are they reviled, but that simply gives the reader something to look forward to learning. What happens as she learns about her new city, meets her co-worker and boss, and tries to do her job, is hugely entertaining. Spoiler alert - she is posted to Paris. The auth

I always loving getting back in the land of the Weeia. I still desperately wish to be a part of these magical people but only if I can be Danni. I loved her so much, she was blunt and snarky when she needed to be but in the end, she just wanted to do a good job. Her ability was awesome and by far my favorite one so far.

Like all of the books in the Weeia world, this book was action packed. Everything starts happening quickly and the pace stays that way, which I love. There's never an opportunity

Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia started out with the examination of a young Weeia girl, Danni, who needs to pass in order to become the next level marshal. Weeia is creatures who appear like humans at first glance, but should they gather in a crowd, they’d stand out too much from distinctive features. They possess special powers for the purpose of protecting both humans and Weeia.

When the story opens, we find that Danni’s family makes it hard to build a name for herself. Aside from a couple of faithfu

Separate from the Unelmoija Series, although part of that world; "Gypsies, Tramps, and Weeia" focuses on Danni, a young Weeia marshal assigned to protect Paris. Sure that she would get assigned to some hellhole, Danni is pleasantly surprised when she is assigned the most plum placement out of anyone in the academy. Although she graduated top in her class at the academy, she was sure that her undesirable heritage would hinder her getting a good job, instead she gets the city of love, Paris.

Weeia are a specialized group who live among humans and who possess certain special powers. Except for these special powers, Weeia are undistinguishable from humans. Weeia Marshals are trained to prevent unscrupulous Weeia from using their powers against humans.

When Danni Metreaux, a recent third level graduate of the Weeia Marshal academy, is unexpectedly sent to Paris for her first assignment, she is excited and a bit over-whelmed. She is also the envy of the rest of the academy graduates who

'Gypsies, Tramps & Weeia' is the story of Weeia Marshal Danni as she is sent on assignment to Paris.

This book had a very Nancy Drew sort of vibe to it, with an added dash of fantasy, as the main character is sent to Paris and gets settled in before becoming involved in an investigation that takes a few unexpected turns. The main story is a mystery but there is also a hint of romance as Danni finds herself attracted to two very different men, and there's also a little bit of action. The setting w

I finished this one, but I can't say I really liked it. It was OK. I liked the story and most of the setting. Some of it needed work. Why the weird names for stuff? But overall, the story was enjoyable. It was the MC I didn't really connect with. Just didn't care what happened to her and don't really want to read more about her.

Weeia are not human – they have ‘abilities’ and in order to protect their secrets there are Marshals looking after them.
Danni is sent to Paris to help police the situation there but finds that all is not well in her office and with her boss. And that when she does find her boss he is very laid back about the work and is far from happy with her choice of clothing. In Paris one should be fashionable after all.
But following fashion dictats is constricting and this is why London fashion is more fu
