ARC Review: Northern Light by E. J. Russell

12 Sep


Expected publication: September 30th 2013 by Entangled: Ever After

Summary: Nothing gives art fraud investigator Luke Morganstern a bigger rush than busting forgers, the low-life criminals who dare victimize true artists. But when his latest job sends him to a remote cabin in the Oregon Coast Range, he’s stunned to discover the alleged forger is his former lover, Stefan Cobbe, the most gifted painter Luke has ever known.

Stefan, left homeless and destitute after the death of his wealthy partner, doesn’t exactly deny the forgery — he claims he doesn’t remember, an excuse Luke can’t accept.

But Luke’s elderly client suggests Stefan may be telling the truth and presents another possibility – a dark presence in the woods, a supernatural fury simmering for decades. Luke must face down his fear of the uncanny – and admit his feelings for Stefan – if either of them is to survive.


My copy was an ARC I received from the publisher for an honest review.

Just because you don’t believe in something?
Doesn’t mean it’s not real.

I decided to write a short review; Northern Star is short itself.
The plot is predictable (or I’ve watched too many episodes of Supernatural…) but not bad.
what I really liked was the writting – witty and scintillating and punchy.
