Review--This Case is Gonna Kill Me

This Case Is Gonna Kill Me (Linnet Ellery #1)This Case Is Gonna Kill Me by Phillipa Bornikova
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A delightful new urban fantasy series that's a mash-up of John Grisham, Carrie Vaughn and Julie James.

Linnet Ellery is fresh out of Yale Law and working at a "White Fang" firm in NYC, thanks to her vampire foster family connections. Linnet's human in a world where werewolves, vampires and elves have come out, and working with the supernatural beings makes her life that much more complicated. Being targeted for death because of the estates & probate case she's handling is not what she anticipated, but the more she digs into the mystery of why this case has hung around so long, the more dangerous it gets.

The urban fantasy field is still alive and kicking, and a new, fresh voice that keeps readers turning pages late into the night is welcome.
In addition to a knowledge of the legal profession in 21st C. America, the author brings a love of riding and horses that'll thrill anyone who once collected horse figurines, or wished she had a pony of her very own.
I'm really looking forward to the next Linnet Ellery adventure.
