"[Bornikova's] characters, human and supernatural alike, possess complexity and depth, and her heroine is tough and immediately likable. Strong storytelling, appealing characters, and an intriguing setting make this urban fantasy series opener likely to have great appeal to the genre's many fans."
--"Library Journal "(Starred Review; Debut of the Month for August 2012)
"John Grisham meets "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Bornikova writes like a real pro, and "This Case is Gonna Kill Me "is a fast, fun, furious read. I can't wait for the next one."
--MLN Hanover, author of "The Black Sun's Daughter
""Linnet's modus operandi--using the law instead of magical weapons against supernatural peril--is a refreshing change of pace. . . . The clever, active protagonist makes this a lively and enjoyable read."
""Phillipa Bornikova is perhaps not the first person to compare attorneys to vampires, but her exciting debut, "This Case is Gonna Kill Me," is a fresh take on both urban fantasy and the classic legal thriller. Linnet Ellery is a smart heroine who tackles the cutthroat world of vampire law with both wit and bravery. An intelligent, gripping debut!"
--Jaye Wells, author of the Sabina Kane series
"A refreshing new take on an old idea, with a strong, intelligent and independent protagonist: a highly promising debut."
