Savage Saints by K.C. Cross
Book 2 in the Monsters of St. Mark's series
Genre: urban fantasy
Format: ebook

About Savage Saints:
Pell learns to love pants.
Pie learns to love magic.
And Tomas learns to love a woman.

Pie and Pell are like two peas in a pod. Meant for each other, madly in love, and living their best lives as Mr. and Mrs. Monster of Saint Mark’s. Kind of. Pie is dreading her new job working for the tall, dark, and sleek Modern Minotaur. And the irony that just a few weeks ago she was demanding that Pell allow her to get a job to support the sanctuary, isn’t lost. It’s like the gods are playing with her on purpose.

Pell is still his grumpy self but he’s got a new job as well — babysitting a bag of magic rings that seem to have a mind of their own. No matter where he hides them, they will not stay put. Add in a doorway he can suddenly see and a new power he forgot he had, and well… things are getting interesting.

Tomas is a brand-new man. Literally. His new freedoms are just the beginning of his adventure into modern humanity. Not only can he leave the sanctuary, drive a truck, and spend time with the people in Granite Springs — he also learns how to cheat the rules.

Everything has changed for the better. But when Pie discovers the secrets of magic, Pell uncovers the real purpose of the rings, and Tomas falls in love with a Townie… things change again.

Only this time, they’re the ones with all the power.

My Thoughts:
There are a few clerical mistakes which I wished were not there. However, these little mistakes can be ignored for the enjoyable reading time that this book gives me.

Of course this book also ends in a cliffhanger, but, it also ends the current dilemma in the book! Which is awesome!! A lot of urban fantasy books don't do that. They end in whooping cliffhanger like the entire book is just a chapter of a bigger book. Not this one! Of course it still follows the story arc of the series, but , the book also has it's own story in line with that story arc and it closes with the ending of the book. That kind of writing makes me buy that author and follow the series!
