    1. 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4I m enjoying this urban fantasy set in London, and McLeod s mix of fae vampires witches I ll be very interested to see how this series intersects with Ben Aaronovitch s magical London when the time comes I m guessing that it ll be their river goddesses river fae that interact and it should be most entertaining Or perhaps via the ghosts I m intrigued and must continue both series Genny ends up fleeing everyone in this book the ghosts, the vampires, other Fae, the police, [...]

    2. Every once in a while you read a debut novel, get all excited about it, want to read the sequel, but the sequel doesn t compare with the original I m happy to say that this sequel to The Sweet Scent of Blood was just as fun to read as the first book in the Spellcrackers series Suzanne McLeod s characters are an interesting mix of good and evil Not one of her characters are completely good, though a few of her characters are simply evil It makes for a great read You are not sticking your finger d [...]

    3. My thoughts The series continues being good, and in this I finally have answers Anyway Genny still has a lot of problems, witches, a cop who doesn t like her, all the vampires in London that wants to suck her yummy fairy blood, Finn, her boss who wants to be than friends and then something is going on with the Fae cos they want her now too As you can see, problems Not to mention being hunted for murder What a juicy tale it is.I like Genny, she is a bit messed up cos of her past where she was me [...]

    4. A very complicated story, full of action and twists.Genny is in a lot of trouble and running for her life from many different sides, as almost everybody seems to want a piece of her Human police, fae curses, vampire politics, magical repercussions, ambitious witches and ghosts are some of the items in Genny s list of problems to be solved, and she doesn t know who to trust, as everyone has their own agenda.Interesting story that continues in the next book in the series, The Bitter Seed of Magic. [...]

    5. I really wanted to love this book, I thought the first one had a lot of potential so I was looking forward to this one The book started out good but then around halfway I got confused I just could not recall a lot of the references or they didn t make sense to me Also around this point the plot started getting overly complicated, with a lot of unnecessary conflicts Then the very end felt very rushed In the end I guess spellcrackers is not a series for me.

    6. This is the second book in Suzanne McLeod s spellcrackers series.There is a lot going on in this book One of Genny s friends is murdered, and she is set up to take the fall Malik Al Khan steps back into Genny s life, and with him, problems regarding Rosa a vampire disguise Genny borrows for her feedings resurface Finn is complicating her love life or lack of We are introduced to an ex flame of Genny s, a kelpie called Tavish A ghost girl is following Gennry around The London fae have the crazy i [...]

    7. Another 3.5 star book I still thought it was complicated than it needed to be and occasionally confusing, but less so than the first book I also would have preferred to read about the fae and witches and less about the vampires, but that s probably personal preference to some degree But it s also little a bit about originality, it s not that it s just like every other urban fantasy or anything, but at some point the sexy dangerous vampire thing gets a bit old for me But I like these dangerous [...]

    8. This was originally posted on Book Lovers Inc Warning This is a spoiler free review but I make references to things from the first book which can be considered a bit spoilery.The Cold Kiss of Death is the 2nd book in the Spellcrackers series This series is so great it gave me back my UF reading mojo Read too much of a genre and you start getting bored , it s what happened to me with the UF genre I kept wanting to go back to read Historicals my safe genre Well, The Spellcrackers series cured me a [...]

    9. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyTHE COLD KISS OF DEATH by Suzanne McLeod is the second book in the Spellcrackers series featuring Genny Taylor, the only leanan sidhe in London, who works for Spellcrackers, a company that fixes magical problems The first half of this book was an urban fantasy lovers dream A version of London overrun with supernatural creatures, a world that has fully integrated both the mundane and magical with deep prejudices on all sides, and a smart protagonist who [...]

    10. 3.5 stars Sidhe fae Genevieve Taylor is in trouble again Hannah Ashby, whom Genny met in the last book, has shown up again this time wielding powerful magic and demanding the priceless Faberg egg Genny received from the Earl Genny s also being haunted by the ghost of a young girl Worst of all, she finds a friend murdered and is framed for the crime Now she needs the help of the manipulative vampire Malik al Khan, which never comes for free.Much like the first Spellcrackers book, The Sweet Scent [...]

    11. How awesome are book signings Back in May 2009, not only did I get to meet Rachel Caine at her London book signing hosted by Murder One, but I also got to buy several books, one of which was the amazing The Sweet Scent of Blood by Suzanne McLeod Suzanne was also at the event, but I didn t know I hadn t heard of her or her book at the time But I feel in love with her series within the first few pages, and since reading it, I ve been itching to read its sequel, The Cold Kiss of Death I got lucky a [...]

    12. Genevieve Taylor is a fae, a sidhe fae And while there are plenty of fae to be found in the city, Genny is the only sidhe fae in London Which is why when a dead body turns up with sidhe magic all over it, Genny is the polices number one suspect Never mind she didn t do it.Genny is on the run, and it s not only the police after her Every vampire is dying to sink their teeth into her, ghosts are haunting her, and many others are after her body in ways then one Unfortunately the witches are causin [...]

    13. This was certainly less convoluted and confusing than the first book I enjoyed it Despite that, I did think that there was a certain element of action preceding information that I am beginning to recognize as part of the author s writing style However, this time it didn t bother me as much That s probably due in part to the fact that I am getting used to it I also don t think it was as extreme as it was in the previous book At this point I plan to continue Hopefully the ensuing installments wil [...]

    14. After reading the first Spellcrakers book and falling in love with it, I made it a point to get my hands on this book and I definitely wasn t disappointed It always amazes me how writers are able to create such complex, intricate worlds and McLeod is really talented at it I love the way she uses elements of fairy and vampire lore and puts a refreshing spin on it The book reads great and the interactions and reactions of the characters are believable I can t wait to read the next book to find out [...]

    15. The Cold Kiss of Death is a well written, fast paced and highly imaginative story set in an alternate and very dangerous version of London Where it s not safe in the Tube, or wherever trees can speak to each other Genny s voice takes you on her personal journey in a very intimate way, revealing what s happening at close range, as well as bits and pieces of her past A past that makes a lot of sense and seems to lead to the vampire, Malik.

    16. I really enjoyed Book 1 I know many like Finn but I m Team Malik This one was good but very confusing and hard to follow at times We learn about our heroine and what her Fae peeps really want from her Good but not great.

    17. Hot damn, this was good All the elements urban fantasy should be in just the right percentages.

    18. Cracking second novel in this excellent series There are some wonderful characters from the first novel, together with new and exciting ones, not to mention a great plot Can highly recommend.

    19. I loved this book, my favorite of the first 3 in the series It was so freaking good, I could not put it down.

    20. Second in the Spellcrackers urban fantasy series revolving around a sidhe fae with an unusual disability.My TakeIt s a fascinating premise with lots of action I do, however, understand why McLeod s series isn t available or popular as she leaves the reader me hanging and clueless on so many points We still don t know what hold Bastien had over Gen s parents If the tradition on changelings goes back to Boadicea, then why is Queen Victoria the one mentioned as though she were the first Where did [...]

    21. The Cold Kiss of Death by Suzanne McLeod is the 2nd book in the Spellcrackers series after the Sweet Scent of Blood If you are in the US, you will have a hard time finding this book until April, when the official US launch date is set If you are in London, you are peachy Luckily, a library in the state of Washington had this available, and I borrowed it Thank you so very much Whatcom County Library System You can also win this, if you re lucky, through the first read giveaway that ends in April [...]

    22. Not a three, like 2.5 stars Really wanted to like this book, but nothing could engage me The main character seemed like a combination of paranormal heroines Same with the plot, recycled for numerous paranormal novels Very ho hum, this is ok but I really don t care.

    23. I preferred to the previous book to this one The action was slow, and I was confused most of the time There isn t enough back story in this book I hope we learn about this mysterious curse in the sequel.

    25. The Cold Kiss of Death is British author Suzanne McLeod s second novel in her Spellcrackers urban fantasy series Picking up shortly after where the first Spellcrackers book left off, The Cold Kiss of Death hits the ground running and never stops It also wastes little time rehashing past events, so I really think this is one series you will want to read from the beginning You really should read The Sweet Scent of Blood before even thinking of tackling this book Cold Kiss of Death is a complex tal [...]

    26. My Thoughts The Cold Kiss of Death is the second book in the Spellcrackers series by Suzanne McLeod It s a wild ride filled with intrigue, mystery, and surprises By the time I got to the ending few chapters, I was on edge waiting to find out what would happen I had to read the last few chapters than once, not because I didn t get it, but because I rushed the first time I absolutely had to know what happened I found the ending of the story quite emotional.Genny is a terrific main character She s [...]

    27. Mon avis en fran aisMy english reviewIt was a real pleasure to read an other Spellcraker novel with our heroine Genny after all these things which happened to her in the first volume We could be afraid that the story s rhythm was slower, but it wasn t the case Indeed, the rhythm is the same all along the book From the start I get into the story very quickly to follow the constant adventures of our heroine This book is a great extension of the first one, we can find all the consequences about the [...]
