URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Dark Touch - Debbie Johnson

Release Date: 09/04/15
Publisher:  Del Rey


It's not easy finding out you're a Goddess. For Lily McCain, the move from local music journalist to being the incarnation of Mabe, Mother of Mortals was a surprise to say the least. Thrust into a game of gods and monsters, the rules of which she barely knows, one thing is clear: if you have power, someone will try to take it from you.


As a reader of a lot of fantasy, I’ve always been left wondering about some authors choice of footwear for their lead characters, not that heels can’t be good but if you’ve got to run and start putting the hurt on someone, a good pair of steel toe cap boots are the way to go in my opinion and that’s just the sort of thinking that Debbie Johnson has gone with, in this her latest book.

The characters are fun to be around, have their own type of quirkiness and really stay with the readers imagination as the tale progresses. Back this up with top notch action, a bucket load of twists alongside dialogue that really will give you a world you want to stay in and all round you know that you’re in for a treat.
