16th century poet warrior, Christopher Marlowe finds himself in the future-present day Philadelphia.
Tam Paradiso is a lonely hunter of...monsters.
Until one fateful night under a crescent moon.
Crescent Moon Chronicles
This Urban Fantasy series follows a time-traveling poet, Christopher Marlowe who lands in present day Philadelphia and saves the life of a police detective, Tamberlyn Paradiso. The two must navigate the pitfalls of a long-distance (and time) relationship as well as solve the puzzle of Marlowe's seemingly random and dangerous forays through time.
Along their journey, they are aided by Tam's mentor, Volpi, several police partners, her sister, Izzy and best friend and crack forensic specialist, Ziggy.
They need as much help as they can get as they fight supernatural beings, traverse portals to other realms, and discover as much about themselves as one another. Together for only brief patches of time, Tam solves crimes and kills monsters as Marlowe corrects glitches in time and spies for Queen Elizabeth.
The series is completed in four books: Knight of the Crescent Moon
Great story from the first page on. Loved the unique characters and their relationships, especially the time traveler from the past, Marlowe.
The interaction between Tam, police woman and monster hunter, and Marlowe was humorous and deep at the same time. I love both of these characters.
What's not to like? This fast-paced novel has it all--suspense, romance, laughs, time travel, and monster hunting. I loved the strong female protagonist and her sexy 16th-century love interest. The preview of the next book in the series looks just as fun.
