Willa Farrington’s magic is broken. Shunned by her coven for failing to pass the Summer Solstice Rite, Willa escapes to the one place no witch belongs – Charleston, a city that belongs to vampires. Determined to embrace her new life, Willa opens Cauldron Boil Books, and unexpectedly finds some friends among the vampires…

Until one terrible night Willa ends up on the wrong side of a pair of fangs. Thankfully, her captor’s plan is ruined when Killian Constantine, the drop-dead gorgeous Warden of Charleston, shows up to save her. But just when Willa thinks she’s safe, Killian, rumored to be the most feared vampire in the city, furiously demands to know why she – a witch – telepathically called him for help.

Intent on finding answers, the two embark on a journey to unravel the mystery behind Willa’s attack and their unusual connection. As they get closer to the truth, the fiery passion between them ignites. But their forbidden romance isn’t making them many friends, and just as Willa starts to think that her entire existence is a lie, deadlier forces come out of the shadows. She will need to believe in her malfunctioning magic, trust bloodthirsty vampires, and cross her fingers that she and Killian make it out together… and that neither end up dead.

It has been so long since I read a paranormal fantasy book and What the Fang? is a great book which did not disappoint. With the illustrated book cover and title I expected a rom-com but it was actually a light-hearted romance which I really enjoyed.

What the Fang? Introduces us to Willa Farrington - a witch without magic, shunned by her coven and living in vampire territory. She’s looking for a quiet life, selling books and making memories with her friends but getting attacked and finding herself saved by Killian, the Warden of Charleston, throws a spanner in the works. As things escalate, Willa finds herself thrown into a world of vampires, long lost family members and a whole lot of magic.

I thought the world building started off great and Finnick and Gwen, Willa’s best friends, were great side characters who I hope we see more of. There was a nice amount of romance between Willa and Killian and I enjoyed their development from strangers to lovers. I did, however, feel like everything was wrapped up nicely and I was quite shocked to see there was a second instalment. I feel as if there should have been more conflict to carry over to justify the second book.

Overall, Kennedy did a great job with What the Fang? It was a nice, quick read which I enjoyed and I look forward to exploring more of the author’s novels. If you like paranormal romances with fast developing romance, this book is for you.
