Tooth and Nail, by Jennifer Safrey. Urban fantasy. Paperback, 311 pages.
Gemma Fae is a political pollster taking a sabbatical while her boyfriend runs for Congress from a NoVA district. Her only hobby is amateur boxing. Due to insistent meddling by the local good fae, she discovers that she is half ... tooth fairy
. The fae need her because she can instigate violence.
I confess, I didn't finish this book. I gave it a full 100 pages, and couldn't go on. I just didn't care enough. I didn't care enough about the characters or their problems. I didn't have enough of the plot (even after 100 pages!) to care about it yet, and the world building wasn't exciting enough to pull me through on its own.
I picked it up because a friend sent it to me with the comment that the fae in here were different than the usual Elves in New York. I put it down because of above.
I recommend it to people who are collecting urban fantasy plots/tropes, because this one is different.Books for 2013
