Indie Saint

Indie Saint, by author VK Fox, is a captivating urban fantasy story that follows Jane, a girl trying to run away from her past. Doing so gets much easier when she develops the power to heal and channel lightning from the sky after reading a book about Catholic saints throughout history. It all seems exciting until she realizes using these newfound abilities almost kills her every time. Jane crosses paths with two agents who can give her the answers she’s looking for. Where did these powers actually come from? Why did they happen specifically to her? How can she control them?

Jane is a fascinating character that I loved to follow, especially in this creative urban fantasy world that is imbued with elements of Arthurian and Sumerian myths. The story is punchy but smart. It reminds me of the humorous writing of A. Lee Martinez, especially his book Monster. It also has the enigmatic feel of the Preacher comic series in the way it takes seriously some very paranormal situations. This is a fantasy novel with an attitude and I look forward to seeing that unique character expand throughout the series.

Author VK Fox’s writing is mesmerizing and he certainly knows how to end a chapter, as I was always desperate to read the next. Indie Saint is the first in a series of four new adult fantasy books. Just like the riveting end to nearly every chapter, Fox concluded this piece leaving the reader itching to get their hands on the second book.

While I enjoyed the novel, I wanted more insight into the main villain of the story. All the characters in the story are compelling and entertaining in their own right, I felt like the villain was missing something. But this is probably purposeful as we will surely find out more in the coming novels. 

Indie Saint is a riotously fun book with an intriguing cast of characters facing an imaginative supernatural world that is only hinting at a deeper backstory.
