URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Nymphs - San Luhanen, Mikko Oikkonen

Release Date: 27/08/15
Publisher:  Headline


Sexy, dark and exciting, NYMPHS is the novel of the smash-hit international TV series. Perfect for fans of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS.

Meet the nymphs: living among us, they're forever young, dangerously seductive - and ever so deadly...

A young man is found dead after a college party in a small town. His body bears the marks of a brutal attack, but police are mystified as to the actual cause of death.

Afterwards, student Didi Tiensuu is approached by two mysterious women. Beautiful and other-worldly, they have come to warn her she is in danger. And to live, she must for ever leave her old life behind.

There are evil forces at work that mere mortals can never comprehend. And Didi is about to discover her past is a lie. The night of reckoning is coming and the choice is hers. Reject her fate. Or accept her destiny and embrace her power...


To be honest this was a different type of book for me as whilst I do tend to read a wide range of Urban Fantasy, I tend to keep clear of titles that have strong sexual themes within as I don’t tend to enjoy them. This title, whilst aimed at a younger reader market deals with all of this as a gateway from normal life into one of the supernatural.

It’s well written and with a solid plot arc works very well, however what I felt that the authors did exceptionally well was bring the principle character through to the audience so that they could find aspects of the principle character that they could not only identify with but one that would make them care about what happened to her.

Add to this decent dialogue and all round I was a more than happy reader. I’ll definitely be reading future novels from these authors.
