✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Denai Touch by Tiffany Shand

If you've been following this blog, you know by now that I'm always on the lookout for a good Urban Fantasy series. I've found a few over the past few months and today I've added another to that list - Denai Touch by Tiffany Shand.

Momma Says: 5 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Denai Touch is well-written in third person POV and fits perfectly into the Urban Fantasy genre. It's the first book in the Excalibar Investigations series and while it is a continuing story this one does not end in a cliffhanger - some unanswered questions, yes, but no cliffy. The steam level isn't high, but there is some, so I would consider this one Young Adult.

Cate McCray is no ordinary witch. 

Prophesied to be the one to destroy the Covenant, an age-old organisation who seeks to enslave all Magickind, the race is on for them to kill her before she attains immortality.
But before receiving the phenomenal power that comes with it, she must first survive the ascension and the only person who can help her is her elemental partner, Jason Talbot. But when the time comes, her forbidden love for Jason threatens to destroy them both.
As leader of Excalibar, an elite team of Enforcers, they work to infiltrate the Covenant leading Cate into life-threatening situations. Can she outwit them before it’s too late?


This one has it all! Gripping suspense, edge of your seat action, and forbidden love in a story of magic and mayhem. The characters are well developed and interesting, the world-building is great, and the story line flows so well, creating a page turner that I couldn't put down.
Cate is a talented witch who has more on her plate than any one person should have to deal with. There's plenty of angst as she and Jason deny their feelings for each other, and if that isn't enough, she faces danger at every turn. Shand builds a world where two groups of witches are battling for control and our heroine often doesn't know who to trust. In fact, there were many characters that I was unsure of until the end and as I turned the last page and several things were made clear, I was still wondering about a couple of them. 
Overall, this first in the Excalibar Investigations series is a solid series starter and does well at introducing Shand's world and the characters that live in it. I would easily recommend this one to anyone who enjoys the genre.
