Book Review: What the Fang? by Stacey Kennedy

Title: What the Fang?
Series: Undead Ever After #1
Author: Stacey Kennedy
Genre: Fantasy; Paranormal; Vampires; Witches; Magic; Romance
Publication Date: January 25, 2022

Willa Farrington’s magic is broken. Shunned by her coven for failing to pass the Summer Solstice Rite, Willa escapes to the one place no witch belongs – Charleston, a city that belongs to vampires. Determined to embrace her new life, Willa opens Cauldron Boil Books, and unexpectedly finds some friends among the vampires…

Until one terrible night Willa ends up on the wrong side of a pair of fangs. Thankfully, her captor’s plan is ruined when Killian Constantine, the drop-dead gorgeous Warden of Charleston, shows up to save her. But just when Willa thinks she’s safe, Killian, rumored to be the most feared vampire in the city, furiously demands to know why she – a witch – telepathically called him for help.

Intent on finding answers, the two embark on a journey to unravel the mystery behind Willa’s attack and their unusual connection. As they get closer to the truth, the fiery passion between them ignites. But their forbidden romance isn’t making them many friends, and just as Willa starts to think that her entire existence is a lie, deadlier forces come out of the shadows. She will need to believe in her malfunctioning magic, trust bloodthirsty vampires, and cross her fingers that she and Killian make it out together… and that neither end up dead.


*A Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this. This my honest and unbiased Review*

I did not expect to love this book as much as I did, I thought this was just going to be a generic Vampire romance, but I am so glad I was wrong. I will admit I typically do stay away from romances with vampires as the story is typically just generic dribbled (yes, I may be thinking of a certain popular series)
What The Fang? is different. 

First, the plot is actually interesting. I found myself interested in all the characters & interested in this alternative world that Kennedy had created. Considering how it ended I'm actually excited to read the next book to see how things go & to see where Kennedy takes the story. 

Second, as I mentioned before I actually liked the characters. Willa is a strong female character and I liked how realistic she is but also she's brave and just a great character. I thought Killian was just going to be the stereotypical brooding vampire, but 11m so happy that was not the case. I also liked Ari and Willa's friends. I really hope we see more of them in the next book. 

Lastly, The romance was hot! I am so glad they did not make us wait too long to get to the smutty goodness, which was just the right amount of steamy. the one drawback I had that while the plot was good, I was able to easily guess what was going to happen next. 

Overall, a great paranormal romance.
