Crooked Fang is one of the best of books I've read in a long while. I know what you're thinking, not another vampire story. No, this is not just another vampire story. Carrie Clevenger has weaved a unique and intriguing page turner where the reader is relentlessly pulled into the world of Xan Marcelles, the vampire bass player who lives in a bar and just wants to enjoy his mostly peaceful existence with a bottle of whiskey on the side. However, that is not to be. We follow Xan as he moves from one misadventure to the next. There's never a dull moment, from fan-yourself-hot sex to the mystery surrounding the murder of an old friend. Impossible to put down, Clevenger keeps the reader on the edge of his/her seat and always wanting more. Xan is the most endearing vampire I've read. He made me laugh, cry, blush and cheer. It's rare that one character can successfully pull off all these reactions from me.
Excellent effort by Carrie Clevenger. I would definitely recommend Crooked Fang to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy/paranormal with high octane adventure, a touch of romance and smoking hot sex.
