DAYSIDER (4.5) by Susan Krinard: Sent out into the Zone to gather intelligence on an unknown colony set up there, dhampir spy Alexia Fox and her partner, Michael, have orders to bring back intel or die trying. And when she and Michael meet a Daysider on the same mission for the Opir race, they split up and Michael leaves to get backup while Alexia stays with Damon, the Opir that can walk in daylight. But when she and Damon are attacked, and a chemical patch that allows her to eat food is stolen from her arm, Alexia knows she’ll die if she doesn’t drink blood. She and Damon, while dependent on one another, form a bond that could end the war between their races. A complicated and fascinating mythology makes Daysider a fun read. Its fast-paced excitement will keep readers’ attention from beginning to end.

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Daysider

-Actual rating 4.5 Skulls

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was like a Sci-Fi mixed with an Urban Fantasy, mixed with a Paranormal Romance and had me hooked from the very beginning.

Susan somehow managed to combine heart stopping action and edge of your seat suspense with enough romance to keep diehard Paranormal Romance fans happy while still making Urban Fantasy lovers want more. There was also a deliciously dark edge to things.

The world building was done wonderfully, the characters were well developed and instantly likable (or reviled) - except of course for those times when they were one or the other and ended up being the opposite. ;-)- and the story was fast paced and full of intrigue.

This was a book that I grabbed from NetGalley because it looked interesting and because I knew we would be hosting Susan for her Urban Fantasy debut, but it ended up being a read that I couldn't put down. I can't wait for more of this series... If you want a unique Urban Fantasy Romance with a bit of a Sci-Fi feel that has tons of action, fascinating plot twists, and major room for future installment potential then this is definitely a book you need to check out!
