Right off the back, right automatically, THIS SERIES SHOULD BE A MOVIE.
The reason for that being is because seriously, what was the last really good paranormal movie to come out?
And I’m not talking about Twilight or I, Frankenstein, which was not really good by the way. I don’t know how they got the money to do that… But I mean the classics. The last Hellboy movie was released in 2009, and Underworld has been on hiatus since 2013 I believe. Hollywood is turning novels into movies/TV shows, the Supernatural Enforcement Bureau definitely, definitely, definitely needs to be a movie. If you’ve ever read a book and in your head said, “I can see this being played out as an action movie” and found yourself entertained, you need to read this series. It has everything you’d want in a paranormal action adventure romance novel.
The Supernatural Enforcement Bureau is bristling with action as Ronan and his team prepare to rescue what is believed to be one of the last Dragons on Earth. Ronan along with his mate and Dragon, Starr, Sam, Serge, Esther and Charmaine, and even his Sire, Josef, Gabe and their mate, Peri, have to travel far into the north to a secret scouted location to where they believe the Dragon has been kept. They believe they are prepared, but they also didn’t account for a very powerful witch that uses dark magic to be behind all this. If they want to save the Dragon they’re going to have to pull all their resources, before it’s too late.
There was so much going on in this book! I don’t know how the author takes care of all the characters or keeps track of all of them but man! The book sets up just like the beginning of any classic film right smack in the middle of a trilogy, with a prep scene. Automatically you get this rush of adrenaline like, “Oh yeah, they’re going to go into this battle zone and it’s going to be epic and there’s gonna be a lot of fighting!” just like in an action movie. Everyone is preparing, everyone is excited, hell I was excited for them.
Micheals has this amazing way of suspenseful writing that keeps the reader on their toes, that makes them want to get to the next page faster, and that leaves them with a sense of, “Oh my god, what’s next, what’s going to happen I need to know NOW!” At least that’s how I felt while I was reading the book.
Even though Michaels was extremely good at keeping track of all her characters and giving them enough “screen time” as I like to call it, I really wish there weren’t so many. As a reader, I never really got to focus on just one character, I couldn’t grow or develop a connection with them. Instead I only scratched the surface of what made everyone who they were and I would have liked more backstory on more than just one witch who didn’t seem to be as important as I thought she’d be.
Despite my criticisms, Supernatural Enforcement Bureau, is definitely for the kind of reader that loves supernatural/urban paranormal novels. Whether you’re a fan of witches, vampires, werewolves, or even dragons, this book and series is definitely for you. I can’t wait to see what happens in Book 3!
