This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I've only recently discovered that I like paranormal novels with the discovery of Patricia Briggs. In my opinion Lori Handeland ranks right alongside Ms. Briggs.

Any Given Doomsday contains sexual content that is significantly more explicit than that of Ms. Briggs. It has been my experience that most explicit sex scenes in a book tend to come off as cheap porn. Not the case with Ms. Handeland.

Ms. Handeland told a great story yet left me wanting more at the close of the book.

I would certainly recommend this book. ( )

An enjoyable book, though it took me a while to like the main character. However, by the time the book ended, I did like her enough to want the sequel. I guess that's a good sign. =) ( )

Contro l'Apocalisse è il primo romanzo dell'apprezzata serie Phoenix Chronicles che, in patria, sembra essere formata da 11 libri mentre, da noi, solo 4 più un racconto prequel che potrete scaricare gratuitamente presso il sito dell'autrice.

Protagonista di questo romanzo è Elizabeth Phoenix, una giovane donna che, membro della polizia Milwaukee, sembra far affidamento sui proprio poteri psichici per arrestare colpevoli. Senonchè, purtroppo, le sue capacità non sono ben viste e tenere il segreto - o tenere se stessa fuori da una camera imbottita - diventa sempre più difficile. L'unica soluzione sembra essere mettersi in proprio e lasciare la polizia.

Elizabeth decide così di fare l'investigatore privato e ricercare persone scomparse fino a quando, un giorno, non sente il bisogno impellente di recarsi dalla donna che l'ha adottata, Ruthie. Lì scoprirà l'atroce verità guida della sua sensazione: la donna è stata assassinata. Ruthie, però, non molla e sfida la morte fino all'arrivo della sua Elizabeth consegnandole un pesante fardello; questo prima che qualcuno colpisca Elizabeth alla testa lasciandola a terra, svenuta.

Risvegliarsi all'ospedale con una gran quantità di informazioni in testa, una confusione incredibile e un ex-fidanzato traditore - che ancora ama - ricercato dalla polizia come assassino di Ruthie è solamente il primo passo che condurrà Elizabeth verso il suo destino. Un destino che Ruthie aveva deciso per lei e per Jimmy Sandrucci fin da quando li prese in adozione.

Il rappresentante delle forze del bene è stato ucciso e l'apocalisse iniziata: non resta che opporvisi con tutte le forze. Sarà in grado Elizabeth, come nuova Veggente, di apprendere ed accettare il suo compito? Sarà in grado di salvare Jimmy, il suo primo amore, dall'accusa di omicidio, quando tutti gli indizi sembrano puntare implacabili verso di lui?

E come si incastrerà in tutto questo Sawyer, affascinante uomo in grado di sfruttare il suo incalcolabile potere per trasformarsi in diversi animali e, inoltre, capace di risvegliare i poteri latenti degli altri?

Un nuovo triangolo del tutto inusuale, un'apocalisse da fermare, una Veggente del bene innamorata di una creatura oscura e una capacità speciale che si innesca con il sesso. Le fan di Anita Blake avranno la possibilità di leggere un romanzo avvincente ed erotico ricco di figure soprannaturali, in cui Bene e Male sembrano avere confini ben precisi e strutturati in schieramenti militari. Forse non troppo nitidi, a ben pensarci.

Un romanzo sicuramente da leggere ma diretto esclusivamente ad un pubblico adulto per via delle tematiche trattate nonché alcune scene piuttosto crude e dirette. Libro sicuramente consigliato. ( )

I like the premise of this book, and it's my first read from this author. It's a typical urban fantasy good vs. evil trope, with a few twists here and there. Our heroine, Liz, has come into evil-fighting powers unexpectedly and we are following along as she learns how to unlock her various abilities. I liked Liz, she was a no nonsense former cop who isn't afraid to get down and dirty fighting the demons. However what I did NOT like was her hang up on Jimmy, the first love who cheated on her. Actually, it could be that I just didn't like Jimmy at all, so any hang up on him was gonna grate on my nerves.

There is somewhat of a love triangle, and for some reason I never like the guy who seems to be the "winner" of the triangle. I am always rooting for the underdog who, in this case, is Sawyer. I loved him! He is my favorite character. A broody damaged male with mommy and daddy issues who has lived for eons but never loved anyone. Oh yeah, and he's smokin' hot and lethal and has tattoos. What's not to like? So I am Team Sawyer all the way here and I just want Liz to hole up with him in New Mexico and make out like bunnies, or snakes or whatever they feel like walking into. My favorite aspect was that they were the only two in the world with that ability.

Overall I think this is a good start to the series. I will keep reading, but Jimmy needs to shape up or ship out, and Liz needs to know when to cut her losses. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 3 stars / 3 flames. ( )

Handeland looks to have another winner of a series on her hands!
 
Author’s way of storytelling is so good, I suggest you join NovelStar’s writing competition, you might be their next big star.
