#BookReview | Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw

Title: Strange Practice 
By: Vivian Shaw
Genre: Urban Fantasy / Paranormal
Pages: 320
Release Date: July 25th, 2017
Publisher: Orbit

Summary from Goodreads: Meet Greta Helsing, fast-talking doctor to the undead. Keeping the supernatural community not-alive and well in London has been her family's specialty for generations.

Greta Helsing inherited the family's highly specialized, and highly peculiar, medical practice. In her consulting rooms, Dr. Helsing treats the undead for a host of ills - vocal strain in banshees, arthritis in barrow-wights, and entropy in mummies. Although barely making ends meet, this is just the quiet, supernatural-adjacent life Greta's been groomed for since childhood.

Until a sect of murderous monks emerges, killing human and undead Londoners alike. As terror takes hold of the city, Greta must use her unusual skills to stop the cult if she hopes to save her practice, and her life.


Review: I've been wanting to get my hands on this book for a long time and the wait is finally over. This book was crazy good. I loved the whole Van Helsing concept and how it was played out. Greta is a paranormal doctor who is thrown into a strange mystery when a murderous monk shows up. How can you go wrong with that? I could have used a little more world building, but that's just me.

Four stars for Strange Practice!
