The Time Will Come #10

The Time Will Come is weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company where we can show off books that we've had for ages and really want to read but never seem to get round to.
My pick this week is Storm Born by Richelle Mead. This is book 1 in the Dark Swan series.
I have absolutely loved anything written by this author. Her Vampire Academy series and Succubus series are my all-time favourite books, and she just has this incredible way of writing really believable, heartbreaking romance, in a story packed with action. Both the main heroines in these series (Rose in VA, and Georgina in Succubus) are really tough, very funny, unique and lovable women. Eugenie in Storm Born promises to be more of the same. Without even looking what its about I know that this will be a cracking series. And I'll get to it... eventually!

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Just typical. No love life to speak of for months, then all at once, every horny creature in the Otherworld wants to get in your pants...

Eugenie Markham is a powerful shaman who does a brisk trade banishing spirits and fey who cross into the mortal world. Mercenary, yes, but a girl's got to eat. Her most recent case, however, is enough to ruin her appetite. Hired to find a teenager who has been taken to the Otherworld, Eugenie comes face to face with a startling prophecy--one that uncovers dark secrets about her past and claims that Eugenie's first-born will threaten the future of the world as she knows it.

Now Eugenie is a hot target for every ambitious demon and Otherworldy ne'er-do-well, and the ones who don't want to knock her up want her dead. Eugenie handles a Glock as smoothly as she wields a wand, but she needs some formidable allies for a job like this. She finds them in Dorian, a seductive fairy king with a taste for bondage, and Kiyo, a gorgeous shape-shifter who redefines animal attraction. But with enemies growing bolder and time running out, Eugenie realizes that the greatest danger is yet to come, and it lies in the dark powers that are stirring to life within her...
