Fearless by Elliott James [4.5 stars]

From the Description:

When your last name is Charming, rescuing virgins comes with the territory -- even when the virgin in question is a nineteen-year-old college boy.
Someone, somewhere, has declared war on Kevin Kichida, and that someone has a long list of magical predators on their rolodex. The good news is that Kevin lives in a town where Ted Cahill is the new sheriff and old ally of John Charming.
The attacks on Kevin seem to be a pattern, and the more John and his new team follow that thread, the deeper they find themselves in a maze of supernatural threats, family secrets, and age-old betrayals. The more John learns, the more convinced he becomes that Kevin Kichida isn't just a victim, he's a sacrifice waiting to happen. And that thread John's following? It's really a fuse...
I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.
Fearless, part three in the Pax Arcana series, is a super fun and fast paced book. I love the world created by Elliott James. It is believable and filled with terrifying creatures and the fantastic characters who hunt them. I was hooked from the very first sentence! The main character, John Charming is a slightly tarnished, very sarcastic and totally kick-ass character. If you have been following the series you'll get to catch up with some old friends and meet some new ones (if you haven't go grab them now!). Combining action, mythology and humor to create a thrill ride you won't want to put down. I can't wait for the next book! Urban fantasy and horror lovers are in for a treat with this 4.5 star read.
