Fire Baptized by Kenya Wright

Fire Baptized by Kenya Wright: For decades, supernatural beings – vampires, fairies, werewolves, etc. – have been forced to live in walled-off areas, separate from normal humans. Lanore is a mixed-blood, shunned even by the other supernaturals. When she witnesses a grisly murder, Lanore takes it upon herself to solve the case before she becomes the next victim. Meanwhile, Lanore’s were-cheetah roommate MeShack and mixie revolutionary Zulu are both rather violently attempting to claim her as their own. (Seriously, it’s like neither of them can show desire without tearing her clothes.) Though supernatural beings are all the rage in YA fiction at the moment, Fire Baptized is unquestionably for adults. It’s quite graphic in terms of both violence and sex. Still, it’s a good read. Lanore is smart and interesting, and while I wasn’t too impressed with her choices in male companionship, I still enjoyed watching her figure things out and, ultimately, save the day. The world itself is pretty cool as well, with each person’s supernatural status branded on the forehead and the changes to human history their existence has manifested. I don’t know that I’d go out of my way to read the rest of the Habitat series, but this first installment certainly was quite the adventure.
