Jocelyn Adams Likes A Little Gritty! #StoneChameleon Tour #IronhillJinn #UF #Paranormal

Today the lovely Jocelyn Adams is here to share her fav top 10 UF / Paranormal books as part of her Stone Chameleon tour! 

Let's dive right in, then I'll give ya the goods on the purdy.

Be sure to check out my 5 star review HERE of this kick bum book #1 of the Ironhill Jinn series!


Jocelyn Adams' Top Ten Favorite UF / Paranormal Books / Series

10.      The Morgan Kingsley series by Jenna Black.  I wasn’t sure I liked Morgan when I first began reading, but it had me by the end of book two.  Neat concept with demons possessing willing hosts, and a little gritty, which is right up my alley.

9.         The Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning.  Most of these had fantastic characters, the main reason I like her writing.

8.         The Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs.  What can I say, I’m a total sucker for a good antagonist-turned-love interest, and Adam makes a darn good one.  I also like her humble profession.

7.         The Psy/Changeling series by Nalini Singh.  Although this starts out Spock-dry with the unemotional voice, I quickly fell in love with the characters in this series.

6.         The Demonica series by Larissa Ione.  Another drift from explosive couple to explosive couple.  I enjoyed the concept of a hospital for demons and enough hot ones running it to keep me warm all winter.  ;)

5.         The Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill.  Okay, so I love me a strong, broody vampire type, and Ethan fit the bill.  I like the ticking sex bomb that’s always in the room when he and Merit are in the room together.

4.         The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews.  One word:  Curran.  ‘Nuf said.  Okay, so I really like the concept, too, the tech and magic competing for domination and the constant threat of the big bad father coming into the picture.  But mostly, it’s Curran.

3.         The Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh.  Again, fantastic character development, deep relationships that build over time.  Loved it.  Odd writing style sometimes, but for a great character, I can overlook a lot.

2.         The Anita Blake series by Laurel K. Hamilton.  This is the series that made me think “I want to do this and this is the style I want to do it in!” It gets a little raunchy as the books go on, but up to about book 8 are my all-time favorites.  Love Jean-Claude.

1.         Most definitely the top of my list is the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning.  Not many books have me guessing right up until the end of the series, but this one did.  The most amazing character ever:  Jericoh Barrons.  I loved the latest one, Iced, too.  Love, love, love.


And now for the goodies ...

When a series of unusual murders point to Lou Hudson, Ironhill’s equal rights advocate, as the primary suspect, she has but one choice: find the real perpetrator before her trial begins or face execution.

Lou, the last of the jinn, survives by hiding her abilities after the rest of the elementals fell victim to genocide. As a preternatural pest exterminator and self-proclaimed guardian of the innocent, she’s accustomed to trudging through the dregs of society. Hunting down a pesky murderer should be easy, especially with help from the dashing and mischievous local media darling.

For Lou, though, nothing is ever simple. When she discovers the killer’s identity, to reveal it would unearth her secret and go against her strict moral code, resulting in a deadly catch twenty-two.

Meet the Author

Jocelyn Adams grew up on a cattle farm in Lakefield and has remained a resident of Southern Ontario her entire life, most recently in Muskoka. She has worked as a computer geek, a stable hand, a secretary, and spent most of her childhood buried up to the waist in an old car or tractor engine with her mechanically inclined dad. But mostly, she's a dreamer with a vivid imagination and a love for fantasy (and a closet romantic — shhh!). When she isn't shooting her compound bow in competition or writing, she hangs out with her husband and young daughter at their little house in the woods.
