Thanks to a magical transplant from an inter-dimensional enforcer, Hailey Parrish can transform into a hawk.When someone begins dismembering hikers along the Appalachian Trail, the enforcers make use of her feathery talents to pursue the killer.Unfortunately, like most things in Hailey’s life, there is nothing ordinary about the assignment.Their target turns out to be maddeningly elusive, they rescue a stray dog that makes a sewage treatment plant seem pleasantly fragrant, and stopping the murders turns out to be the least of their worries.
Special Attraction, the third book in the Coursodon Dimension series, combines paranormal romance, urban fantasy, a bit of science fiction and a healthy dose of quirky humor.
I have genuinely enjoyed each book in this series. In my opinion while they may not get better each time, they definitely hold their own and the series as a whole is on an equal playing field. What I like? The world M.L. Ryan has created. She has managed to use wonderful descriptions to paint a world in each of her books. She doesn't rely on her readers simply being familiar with the atmosphere already from the first two, she manages to keep the world fresh in our minds. What I love? The characters! They are so fun and real. I enjoy reading about them and their growth from book to book. Everything about this series just Gels together so smoothly. Something new? I really think that the surprises and actions were stepped up a notch in this installment. It was very exciting to read and try and guess what was coming next.
M.L. Ryan is a professional woman - which is not to say that she gave up her amateur status, but rather that she is over-educated with a job that reflects her one-time reluctance to leave school and get "real" work – and she spends a lot of time in that profession reading highly technical material.
She has many stories rolling around in her head, and she finally decided to write some of them. She prefers literature that isn’t saddled with excruciating symbolism, ponderous dialogue or worldly implications. She also doesn’t like plots so reliant on love at first sight that it makes her feel like her head might implode.
She lives in Tucson, Arizona with her husband and teenage son, four cats, two dogs and an adopted desert tortoise.
