Review: Shades of Grey by L.M. Pruitt

Shades of Grey by L.M. Pruitt

**I received this ebook in exchange for an honest review and participation in the blog tour!

Book Description:
My thoughts:
Jude Magdalyn Henries lives what many would call an unconventional life.

Orphaned at birth, raised by nuns, a teenage runaway living on the streets… she now earns a living at odd jobs, including one as a fake tarot card reader. Very little about Jude’s life appears normal, by any scale. When she accepts a gig to do a private reading, unconventional takes on an entirely new meaning.

Life as she knows it ends when she’s thrust into a world she never knew existed—one filled with magic, vampires, and her beloved New Orleans on the verge of an underground war. To make matters worse, she's got two men in her life vying for attention, Williams and Theo. Both call to a different part of her, but one scares her just a little bit. Can she step up to the challenges set before her and make the right choices for the greater, which may or not be the greater good?
My thoughts:  This is a fantastic story!  I fell in love with the characters.  
The story is captivating!  The plot is exceptionally developed.  Jude is fascinating.  Her snarky attitude is refreshing.  I enjoyed watching her find her way in the life she is thrust into.  L.M. Pruitt has created characters that will win the hearts of every reader.  They live in a world that is both realistic and just a little bit more.  The setting is perfect, it seems only natural for the story to take place there.  The story has so much to offer.  There is mystery, romance, good vs. evil, magic, vampires, witches, and there among it all - the desire for right to win.  

You won't want to set this one down once you start reading it! It's fast-paced and filled with all manner of action!  The good guys are incredible, the bad guys are so well done that you love to hate them!  An all around must read for the fantasy lover in us all!  Can't wait for more!
