The Witnessing of Matlyn WrenThe Witnessing of Matlyn Wren by Jennifer Lynn January

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Every now and then I sign up for review requests and receive them. This book was described to me as Urban Fantasy, which it is, but it’s more like Urban Erotic Fantasy. That’s not my normal jam, but I liked it well enough. The author has a vast array of colorful characters and vividly captures what I think New 815ea60538261f3943b04975273552b6Orleans must be like. (Never been there, but I’ve heard things lol) The premise of the story is pretty good. Beings known as Omens are bearing witness to important moments in the lives of regular people. There are Light and Dark Omens and are just as you could imagine. Light Omens witness the good happening to a deserving person, while Dark Omens witness, well Dark events in a person’s life before they ultimately end. The subject they are witnessing then appears as a story tatooed on the Watcher’s body.
Baker, a Dark
Omen is witnessing Matlyn Wren, while Ingrid, a Light Omen is simultaneously witnessing her sister Parrish. It was neat to read these stories simultaneously and compare the differences.
Baker finds himself in a bit of a pickle when his jaded sensibilities are washed away and he develo55047970ps an intense attraction to his latest charge…Matlyn.
Not a fan of erotic elements, but technically speaking, the writer has a good character development and the story progression was a bit confusing because it went back and forth through time. I do have to say that I was glad I got a chance to read
this because it made me hop out of my YA comfort bubble. Change is a good thing!
All in all I give it a 4 star review and recommend it to 18yrs and up crowd for explicit material. Happy Reading!da71a62bce8dca0ecc43c99af4e94325
