I adore really good urban fantasy and this series is definitely one I’d recommend. Ivy has a voice that is believable and it’s very easy to get sucked into whatever trouble she finds herself in. In this book she’s struggling with zombie gerbils, vicious vampires, a dragon and a saucy succubus to name just a few. Add in creepy clowns, living breathing nightmares and you start to realise that the things that go bump in the night might be terrifying to you and me but to Ivy it’s just another case ! ...more

At first, thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for sending this gem in exchange for a honest review.

I have never heard of Ivy Granger and her unique family of supernaturals before, but since I love Urban Fantasy, it's wonderful to have discovered this series!
Ivy reminds me of Cal Leandros with her snark and of Mattie Hathaway/Emma Rose Crane with her tragic and mysterious backstory.
I love all the characters in this series and E.J. Stevens' writing is fast paced and entertaining.

Blood Rite, by author E.J. Stevens, is the Sixth installment in the author's Ivy Granger series. The series is told in the first-person point-of-view of Ivy Granger. If you haven't started this series yet, let me summarize. Ivy is a psychic detective, fairy princess, and demon mother to Sparky. She's about to marry her boyfriend Ceffyl who just happens to be the Kelpie King. If that weren't enough, she also shares an apartment with

It's great to have a new book in this series. I read this book in one sitting. It's fast-paced and the action never stops, from cute zombie gerbils to zombie dragons to lich kings to queen. I can't wait to read the next book. #BloodRite #NetGalley

Ivy and co are back and what a wild ride this 6th book is!

If you haven't read the rest of the series, I strongly suggest you do as information and character building from previous books are woven throughout this story. Zombies, fae power, demons and more dance permeate this book and the story itself ends in such a way more could come in future books (oh, please!) but you are not left dangling on a cliff.

As always, Author Stevens does a great job showing the world through Ivy's eyes. The writing

Wow, I am glad glad to see the return of Ivy Granger. Boy have I missed her. I am sorry to nearly gush but this is everything I like about urban fantasy and I am afraid that’s how it is! I loved the other books and this is no different. It’s as good if not better than the others. Roll on the next one. Highly recommended.

Zombie gerbils…

How do you not become utterly intrigued with a story that starts off with the main character being tasked with tracking the graverobber responsible for zombie gerbils running loose? This whacky and wonderful series incorporates supernatural folklore with a myriad of various mythologies and never fails to offer the reader a fun and fantastic adventure with not a single dull moment. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the whimsical fantasy and have become very attached to the characters

Once again Ivy's eagerness to protect those she cares about, lands her in trouble. She ends up promising a head vampire to solve a mystery as to who is stealing the dead and resurrecting them. Of course there is more to it than simple grave robbing and soon Ivy is once again facing a lot more than she bargained for.
This is yet another well developed story in the Granger series. Relationships continue to grow as we learn more about our main characters as well as the supporting characters. We

Ivy granger is a psychic detective, fairy princess, demon mother, and a shining, glowing wisp in this latest case.

Can she save Harborsmouth from the latest death and destruction coming her way? Ivy is coming into more magical power, and she needs to learn how to use it fast! She has weddings to plan!
I love this series. It is clever, original, with unexpected

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I'm completely blown away by this book.
This book is really well written and the characters are well written and you are definitely invested in what happens to them.
This book is dark with grave robbing, zombies and flesh eating marsh monsters
I'd definitely recommend this book as it has a bit of everything, romance, fighting, gore and more.
You won't be disappointed if you enjoy

A brand new adventure for Ivy and co.
Gaius is the one asking for help from Private Eye this time and he’s in a real tizzy.
Someone is poaching what is his.
I really enjoyed this story, but then I’ve loved all of the Harboursmouth stories.
It’s fun to see how all the relationships change over time, my favourite characters are Sparky and Torn.
This story also shows how Ivy’s powers are still changing and I can’t wait for the next story to see how this arc develops.

This book is not as good as the rest of the series. There isn't as much depth to the action in this book so it falls flat. The outcome is never in doubt. Parts of the action were left out, as in the escape from the asylum.

Ivy continues to be whiney. I got really tired of the dramatic announcements of impending death. On the flip side, I got tired hearing about how she loves everyone. I got it after the first few repetitions. I was really disappointed that Ivy is such a special snowflake. Her

Get ready for exciting storytelling! All kinds of paranormal for your pleasure. Lots of monsters run the streets that people are unaware of but Ivy Grange, the Psychic detective hopes to keep it that way. She investigates paranormal activity no one else will and fixes the problem, most of the time. Very good writing! Good book. Loved the characters.

Fabulous addition to the series! Wow, lots of twists and turns for Ivy's crew. And then the surprise of who she becomes, even better. (I won't spoil it for you) I am anxiously awaiting the double wedding. I can't wait to see where they have it and who shows up. Will there be any surprises? The suspense is killing me! This book is full of action and drama, the characters are so wonderful together. They make up a wonderful group of "family". They love and test each other just enough to make ...more

I read the other novels in this series and was more than happy to request this ARC.
This is an excellent urban fantasy series, full of actions and humour, and I like Ivy and the cast of characters.
It was great to meet them again and read about their new adventures.
The plot is fast pace, full of twists and turns, and I read it as fast as I could.
I like the humour and the style of writing, the characters are fleshed out and the world building is well developed and interesting.

Another great story from EJ Stevens! A brilliant tale from the Ivy Granger series! I love the character & story development through this whole series, always something new & exciting! Would strongly recommend this writer!
4.25 stars! I am so continuing to love Ivy Granger and all her many supernatural friends. The town of Harborsmouth is the perfect setting for this urban fantasy about a private eye for the paranormal sort. She's come a long way from how she started and by that I mean back when she could touch an object and see its history as her only real power. That meant she always had to wear special gloves. Now, she has transformed a few times and we keep meeting an Ivy with even more powers. Each book ...more

This was first published on my blog " Lecture toute une Aventure"

My opinion:

Really good but very dark. This series is becoming darker and darker without loosing its little touches of humour or romance which is a very good point. That being said i sure didn't expect it to be so dark either yes it include grave robbing and zombies but it's deeper than that. The ambiance , what we fear to expect it's really creepy.

As always Ivy does lead the investigation but even herself feels that there is a

Things are changing. Can Ivy embrace her heritage and her powers to help the humans and faerie.
Ivy is hired by a powerful vampire to stop whatever creature is stealing his corpses. But as Ivy and her friend investigate, they are drawn into more and more danger. The necromancer turning corpses into zombies has targeted only faerie corpses. Why? And he is very powerful. Can they take him down before humans are hurt? And what of Ivy’s powers? She seems to be getting more powerful. Will her powers

Interesting that Ivy Granger seems so unsure of herself in this story. She didn't have her kick butt. we can do anything attitude. In this story, she seem to second guess herself with every move. A pocket realm, with a king necromancer is affecting the town. Zombies moving through the streets, all going to the same location. Its up to Ivy and her team to find a way to close the realm and stop the necromancer before there's nothing left. There are a few surprises along the way and them meaning of ...more

Holy shiznet!!! This story was gr8. I have never read an Ivy Granger story before, but now that I've read this one, I will be reading them all. It's gr8 that I didn't have to read the beginning books, just that I want to. Ms. Stevens has a great writing ability that totally draws the reader in. I

A first for me by this author, this is book 6 in a series and even though I haven’t been reading this series, it was easy to pick up the spirit of these characters. Love the mix of paranormal and humor. The gerbils had me mentally trying to picture them. Brought back flashbacks of the movie “Ben”. Sort of anyways l I found this authors prose easy to read which made the pages fly by quickly. The storyline truly did keep me immersed. Will need to read more books about this
