This is my first double review, but I wanted to get my thoughts on both books down before UNHUMAN JOURNEY, the second book in the Kirsten O’Shea series, is released on JUNE 17!
It’s tough to do my usual review format for two books. The fact is that the two read really well together, like an epic urban fantasy. You can read the first one alone, but you’re going to be left hungry for more. If you’re anything like me, the time between books in a series is downright painful. I’m glad I didn’t have to wait with the Kirsten O’Shea series!
I’ve read Candace’s work before (see my review of Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club #7, GONZO), and I’ve become a fan. She’s a terrific lady who’s a lot of fun… and may be my brain twin. *ehem*

Rating: I’m giving the two books together FIVE BATTY MOONS!
ONLY HUMAN – Someone is abducting women and killing men in a way to get Kirsten O’Shea’s attention. Luckily, she has some formidable friends and allies in the supernatural world, and she isn’t without her own defenses, either.
A powerful master vampire romances her while the alpha werewolf flirts with her, and an ancient being who used to be worshiped as a god wants her dead, but Kirsten survives, even if she is Only Human.
UNHUMAN JOURNEY – There’s a war brewing between good and evil, and the chess pieces are being set…
Aaron has gone missing, and Mordecai has taken over Kirsten’s training. She’s learning by leaps and bounds under the god-of-old’s not-so-gentle tutelage, but with Nathan in charge of Drake Security during The Dragon King’s unplanned absence, everything is upside down.
The evil Celrau vampires were banned from creating new offspring, but they’ve bargained for permission to do so in the Underworld, where the Concilio has no authority. As part of their army-building, the Celrau vampires kidnap Kirsten and take her to the Underworld with the intention of making her one of them. Alone in another realm, Kirsten must form unexpected alliances to survive a most Unhuman Journey.
Join bestselling author Candace Blevins on a thrilling adventure into the critically acclaimed sequel to Only Human.
