The Wicche Glass Tavern (Sam Quinn Book 3) Kindle Edition
I’m Sam Quinn, the werewolf book nerd owner of the Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar. Clive, my vampire gentleman caller, has asked me to marry him. His nocturne is less than celebratory. Unfortunately, for them and the sexy vamp doing her best to seduce him, his cold, dead heart beats only for me.
As much as my love life feels like a minefield, it has to take a backseat to a far more pressing problem. The time has come. I need to deal with my aunt, the woman who’s been trying to kill me for as long as I can remember. She’s learned a new trick. She’s figured out how to weaponize my friends against me. To have any hope of surviving, I have to learn to use my necromantic gifts. I need a teacher. We find one hiding among the fae, which is a completely different problem. I need to determine what I’m capable of in a hurry because my aunt doesn’t care how many are hurt or killed as long as she gets what she wants. Sadly for me, what she wants is my name on a headstone.
I’m gathering my friends—werewolves, vampires, wicches, gorgons, a Fury, a half-demon, an elf, and a couple of dragon-shifters—into a kind of Fellowship of the Sam. It’s going to be one hell of a battle. Hopefully, San Francisco will still be standing when the dust clears.
"As in the first two books, Kelly again immerses readers into a shrewdly balanced paranormal setting, filled with the darkness of devastation but lightened by the humor and joy of complex, and sometimes twisted, relationships–particularly when Furies, demons and gorgons are involved.” —BookLife, editor’s pick
“Kelly introduces fierce, lovable heroine Sam Quinn with this master class in storytelling and survival.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review on The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar

In this third installment of out werewolf/wicche/maybe fae heroine, Sam and her love, vampire lord Clive Fitzwilliam, fight to live free of threats and crazy murderous plots against them, not one one but on two fronts.
The first threat is ongoing, and it comes courtesy of Sam’s deranged aunt, who has been consumed by jealousy and evil intentions ever since Sam took her first breath. This woman, Sam’s mother’s sister, will use any means—and any creature—to do Sam in.
The second threat to Sam and Clive’s Happily Ever After comes from Clive’s long and storied history. Although just as deranged as Sam’s aunt, this woman, Leticia by name, is a vampire, and has been crushing on Clive for almost a millennium. Although Leticia’s lethal desire is in no way reciprocated, Sam stands between Clive and Leticia’s own dreams of HEA.
A long-lost relative brings Sam great joy and provides some missing background, short-lived though the association may be. Also the characters familiar to the reader from the first two novels, including Owen and George, Dave, and the gorgons, add dimension and interest. A visit with a dragon matriarch and a quick detour into Faerie to meet the queen enrich the plot. At the conclusion of the book, Clive and Sam achieve a symbolic HEA moment, even though they still must move forward to eliminate the ongoing threat of Leticia’s mother in England.
One final note. I adore references to pop culture, literature, television shows, etc., in novels. This novel contains a wonderful gem of this nature: a nod to The Giving Tree, the beloved, revered children’s book about a tree that literally sacrifices itself for the love of a child. I detest this book. It seemed horribly wrong to me as a child when I first read it, and I refused to read it to my own children for the same reason I dislike it so intensely: self-sacrifice to the point of oblivion is not inherently noble or delightful or worthy. I am horrified by the lack of compassion and empathy the child to whom all is given demonstrates. It is repugnant to me. Oh how I loved reading a discussion by the characters in this novel about the children’s book, especially as their take on its message is similar to mine!!
If you have not read the first 2 books, go back and read those and think of this as a “bridge book.” It will keep the story going until we get some more action that rivals the ending of the first book.
The writing is brilliant, the plot is thoroughly entertaining and the characters are a delight. After posting this review, I’m going to check what other books are available from this author! Perhaps KU would include her works, as well!

No spoilers,but the storyline kept me hooked as Clive and Sam search for her Aunt. There are lots of ups and downs,new characters appear,lots of action and lots of laughs. Part of it even made me cry a little.
Fabulous,just fabulous..didn’t put it down till I finished it..and now I cannot wait to read the next one!!!!!
