Book Tour Review: Stone Cold by Jocelyn Adams

Stone Coldbanner

Stone Cold by Jocelyn Adams
Lou Hudson makes a deal with the Isaac to save the Ironhill jinn from execution…and lands on the front line of a war between the vampire and his sire.

Daddy Dearest intends to have Lou for himself to spite Isaac and begins meddling in every corner of her life. Her reputation shatters when people die, her monster-whispering skills shelved by public outcry and vampire politics.

When forced to confront their enemy, she isn’t prepared for the depth of Isaac’s plotting—or her increasing attraction to him—and to end their latest crisis will only cost Lou a piece of her soul.






*** 4 Stars ***
In the second book of the Ironhill Jinn, “Stone Cold”, Lou is physically linked to the hot, mysteriously, and annoying vampire lord Isaac. On top of having to deal with the city dropping their contract and putting the supernatural sanctuary she runs call “The Reservation”, Lou has to deal with: coming to terms with her heritage, being linked with Isaac, finding Amun (a past potential lover/partner) who has disappeared off the face of the earth, Fae back in town, and controlling her powers under all the stress. In hiring a new team member, Lou has to fight off natural attraction to him and try to figure out who the heck he is and isn’t. Going around and around in circles, Lou is swept into a battle that may be more than she can handle. Trying to fight her natural instincts might just be the end of her if the supernatural world and its people imploding don’t. The fight for Lou’s heart and body between all the deliciously strange, mysteriously, and fun men in her light is a fun little tangle to follow throughout the novel.

Following in the footsteps of the first book, the author does an excellent job of world building and describing the creatures in her world, their purposes, power, and background. Lou is an extremely likeable character just trying to survive, be independent, and caring for others always above herself. The struggle to survive and all the political insanity of the different supernatural cultures will keep the reader interested and intrigued, while the steamy romance and lusty attractions will spice up the novel for the paranormal romance lover.

The books don’t necessarily need to be read in order as the author provides background, but book two takes place right after the events of book one and builds on previous characters and plot lines.
