Chase the Dark by Annette Marie
Review by: Dani Hoots
Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: To become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. There are three obstacles in her way.
The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to get Piper into bed and otherwise annoy the crap out of her. The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive — and scary. Did she mention scary?
The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.
And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes.
Now she’s on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She’s dead on her own, but there’s no one she can trust — no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons … See problems one and two.

A great mix of characters, I found it very interesting the mix of mythological beings that were in this book. I loved how they were thrown together and their interactions with each other. It was entertaining to say the least.
I found Piper to be a pretty strong character, but in some areas it felt like the men in her life were stringing her around and she should be stronger than that. In the beginning one of the characters just pushes her down and tells her what to do when they are attacked and I think she should have been a bit stronger and not dealt with that. It was a minor thing but I felt like as to where she’s at in society, she shouldn’t take that kind of stuff.
The plot was interesting and strong. I was able to read the book in one sitting, as I read pretty fast and like to read a book in one day. If you like urban fantasy, this is definitely the book for you.
All in all I give this book a 4/5 as I felt the character could be stronger. But other than that it was a really good story and recommend it to urban fantasy lovers.
