Sizzling PR Spotlight + Review + Excerpt + Giveaway: The Fairyland Murders by J.A. Kazimer


The Fairyland Murders
Author: J.A. Kazimer
Genre: Mystery/Paranormal Romance
Release date: December 8th, 2014




Blurb:
Not all ending are happy...

Blue Reynolds knows the darker side of New Never City--the side that's hopped-up on fairy dust and doesn't care if your house gets blown down. Rent's due and his PI business is all but make believe. But even Blue shudders at having to chase after Isabella Davis, a freckle-nosed redhead five feet tall on her tip-toes...if you don't count the pretty pink wings.

Izzy is tough, and sneaky, and not too thrilled with the idea of being the new tooth fairy. The last six have been most gruesomely extracted. But Blue has a feeling that whoever is killing the tooth fairies is worse than your standard  big bad psycho. The Fairy council is hiding something. The shadows are moving out into the light. And Blue is saddled with a shocking power that could take out half of New Never City...


My Thoughts:


Normally, I wouldn't pickup a mystery to read, but The Fairyland Murders did catch my eye. First off, the title. Second, the cover (cause we know I love covers). Third, the blurb intrigued me, which normally I don't read. So, when I started reading I was intrigued by the whole story. So, we have this Blue and he's trying to Izzy from the same fate as the previous tooth fairy's have succumb. However, it's not an easy task with Izzy always on the run.

All right, The Fairyland Murders isn't your typical fairyland tale where it's happy and cheerful. No, it's nitty gritty and it would be like living in the ghetto of a fairyland, like the underworld. Throughout the whole story you are hanging out in Blue's mind as he tries to solve the case, which I kind of like. The dialogue between him and the other characters in the story are kind of funny, especially around Izzy.

The bottom line: If you don't mind reading a story that isn't the pretty side of a fairyland, you have your book. Plus, I think the Brother's Grimm would have enjoyed this tale into the dark underbelly of New Never City.

Excerpt from The Fairyland Murders:


Of all the fey PI firms, in all the kingdoms, in all the lands, these twin hairless fairies had to walk into mine.
Of course I knew why they were here.
     My rents not due for two days, I said, propping my feet on top of my worn desk. It groaned under the weight. Not that another forty-eight hours would matter in the scheme of things. Id still be a few hundred short of meeting my monthly office space rent.
The PI biz wasnt what it used to be.
And it used to be pretty damn bad.
Hell, I only had one case in the last month and Id yet to see a penny from it. Of course, I hadnt quite solved it either. But I would. Blue Reynolds, PI, always gets the job done. Eventually.
     Blue, Peyton, the taller of the two fairies, said as he hefted his tiny pants. They rose an inch, showing off a pair of green and white kids socks. We aint here for the rent. We want you to do a job for us.
     I leaned back further in my chair. Nope.
     Frowning, Peyton consulted with his twin brother, Clayton, in a hushed whisper. They argued for a second, finally nodding in apparent agreement before facing me again. In unison they shot me equally creepy and earnest smiles.
A lesser man mightve found their pixie-shaped faces and wistful plea cute. Not me. Id dealt with fairies too many times to fall for their adorable act. In general, fairies were winged devils; these two were in particular.
Please, they said. For us?
Again I shook my head. This time with greater emphasis, so much so that the bones in my neck popped. I tilted my head back and forth working out the kinks as the twins regrouped.
Come on, Blue, said Clayton, the shorter brother. Shorter was relative since neither he nor his twin stood more than two feet tall. Itll be a piece of cake.
You said that about the last job. I kicked off my combat boot and wiggled four toes through the hole in my sock. I still havent found my toe.

Peyton winced, but Clayton, true to his demonic nature, giggled. Guess he didnt go running wee wee wee all the way home like we figured.
