A fantasy / mystery / romance mash-up with Viv, the Orc proprietor, intent on doing something other than breaking skulls and living up to stereotypes. Tandri, a succubus also attempting to live outside of stereotypes, quickly becomes invaluable to Viv’s plans.

I enjoyed this book for demonstrating that fantasy doesn’t have to be about saving a world, and that romance can take place within fantasy worlds. It’s a nice change for the genre.
