A kiss before doomsday - Laurence MacNaughton

When sorcerers disappear off the streets of Denver, the only person to notice a pattern is Dru, proprietor of The Crystal Connection and newly-minted sorceress. Monstrous creatures are attacking and dragging off anyone with magical powers. Signs point to forbidden necromancy in the hands of someone trying to fulfill the prophecy of the apocalypse scroll.

With the dead rising from the grave, Dru fears someone is picking up where the Harbingers left off half a century ago. Now more than ever, Dru needs half-demon Greyson and his infernal car, Hellbringer. Though Greyson is missing and presumed dead, Dru believes he’s alive—and trapped at the center of this evil.

Dru will need her friends—and her enemies—trusting in Rane’s strength, Opal’s wisdom, and her own crystal magic to infiltrate the mountainous fortress of a powerful sorcerer intent on bringing about doomsday.

Because the moment the prophecy is fulfilled, legions of undead will rise to consume the souls of everyone on Earth… 

My thoughts:
This is UF, but it does feel different. I guess it's the intensity, kick-assness and love brooding that you can not find here that changes it. And sure, it is still intense at times, Dru is still cool and can save herself and there is a guy she likes. But it is very different.

In the last book they saved the world from doomsday...for a while. There are still seals that might be broken and a doomsday coming closer.

I like Dru, she is just, normal you know. She enjoys working in her store and doing the little sorcery she can. She has two good friends and all is well. Except that she misses Greyson that went missing in the last book, or did he? Is he stuck in the netherworld? Is he back? Still a demon? But this is her book, any man can wait in the sidelines.

She is cool and does not let a thing like impending doom stop her. Now, she will stop it. She likes to investigate things too much ;)

I enjoyed it. It was fast, short and kicked a punch

  15. This is a fun series. I like Dru, her use of crystals and the friendships that she has and I also think it's great to read a series where each book is self contained.
