Yeah, easier said than done. Supernatural Freak Robyn Wise is, well, freaking out.
She’s trying to adjust to her new life as the Spirit of the Cat’s incarnation. But with little success. She cannot find the other animal spirits who are supposed to help her, nor can she master the tricky art of telekinesis.
And then there’s James, her wizard best friend. They kissed in a moment of passion, right after she had slayed a powerful infernal monster.
After that, being around James awakens a range of emotions she’s really not eager to analyse. She just wants to be back to normal, to be friends again. Trouble is, it’s not that easy.
Especially when a mysterious Fog attacks London and the city’s survival depends on she teaming up with James. But it’s not a big deal, right? They can totally keep things friendly and professional, right? Right? RIGHT?

Supernatural Fog was a thrilling and entertaining sequel to Supernatural Freak. It is a series that is full of humor and quirkiness in an urban fantasy setting, which I’ve always thought works well. Robyn was funny and easy to relate to. I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting James and Robyn to not be a thing in book two, so I was a little taken aback by how distant they were to each other in the beginning, but I totally understood.
The supernatural elements of the book were interesting and unique, too. I loved how Robyn was able to do what’s needed in a nontraditional way, which kept everyone on their toes. It’s like she’s got this whole fate/destiny thing, but she’s totally winging it, which makes her a lot more down to earth.
The side/supporting characters were all full of as much personality as Robyn, leading to some pretty hilarious and entertaining dialogue, which I think is the large part of what makes the book so much fun to read. Between the characters, dialogue, politics of the supernatural, and the impending doom, there was never a dull moment and it was a blast.
I recommend the book and the series in general if you’re a fan of urban fantasy and love strong, humorous leads. It’s definitely enjoyable and action packed.
