ANY GIVEN DOOMSDAY - Lori Handeland

There is not much better than a well written, FREE, paranormal mystery. Hey! That's what ANY GIVEN DOOMSDAY is! I signed up for the possibility to review Lori Handeland's new series to be released in November and I was lucky to be a recipient a week ago. Thankfully, I was at the tail end of a book and could begin almost immediately.
Elizabeth Phoenix knows she's different, has always known this. She just didn't know how different. She was raised in the foster care system, found and lost and found her soulmate, found a career in law enforcement....lost that too. Lost the woman, Ruthie, who Liz thought of as a mother. Ruthie handed over her power to Liz. This is the power to lead the good guys against the bad in the coming Doomsday.
Yeah, Liz isn't so thrilled to have this power, but she'll do what she needs to do (and with whom) to find out more about her growing powers and the creatures that she always thought were myth....werewolves, vampires, witches....

I liked the book's different variations on were-creatures, witches, vampires. I liked how strong Liz was through the story. I like how Liz adds to her powers....YOWZAH! No spoilers.....
Four hottie paranormal beans!

I saw this on Library Thing Early Reviewers last month. Lots of people wanted it and only a few copies were available. Glad you liked it. Does it really take place around Milwaukee??? (my area, lol).

Sweet! I just got this one in as well and am looking forward to it. My sister reads Handeland's other series, but I've not read her at all yet. This seemed like the best time to start, right?

Mary: It starts in Milwaukee and moves to New Mexico then to New York. It's a good read.

Becky: I agree that it's a good place to start. I've never read Lori's work before, but I am definitely looking for more of her books.

Jenna: I'll send it out to you when I send back GREYWALKER and POLTERGEIST.
