Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge: A Novel by Paul Krueger [eARC]

Title: Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge
Author: Paul Krueger
Expected Publication:  June 7, 2016
A sharp and funny urban fantasy for “new adults” about a secret society of bartenders who fight monsters with alcohol fueled magic.

College grad Bailey Chen has a few demons: no job, no parental support, and a rocky relationship with Zane, the only friend who’s around when she moves back home. But when Zane introduces Bailey to his cadre of monster-fighting bartenders, her demons get a lot more literal. Like, soul-sucking hell-beast literal. Soon, it’s up to Bailey and the ragtag band of magical mixologists to take on whatever—or whoever—is behind the mysterious rash of gruesome deaths in Chicago, and complete the lost recipes of an ancient tome of cocktail lore.
I received a free advance digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

To summarize everything I’ve read, the book was in no way horrible or poorly written, nothing about the story piqued my interest. Not to mention I did spot a few glaring plot holes and some things just did not add up or make any sense to me. One of this is the
lack in background about the Tremens. For me there are some things that were overlooked, which lessened the overall realistic quality of the story.

Honestly, this was not an engrossing read for me as I thought it could be. I guess that it just isn’t my cup of tea.
