There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, the book needs some serious editing. There are so many typos, weird punctuation, the wrong tense used, missing words and unnecessary words in the middle of sentences that it slows down to flow of the story. Very annoying, but because I liked the story enough I trudged through it all to see how it ended.
I just hope the editing improves in future books, because if it doesn't it may become frustrating enough that I give up on this series and author.

Every tired trope in fantasy? Check.
Seriously. Absolutely nothing original, except skipping the part where an editor reads the book, fixes glaring plot errors and at least a dozen major typos.
The book was dirt cheap, so I can't complain about that. Will I read the other four? Nope.
Also evident from the outset is the writer's skill at developing character, a setting and scene through powerful writing and stunning imagery. This author is a wordsmith, a creator of imagery and fluent, compelling narrative that makes reading this book a pleasure.
Contrasting with that, however, is a small number of typographical errors that take the reader by surprise and break their concentration from the flow of the story. While this is disappointing, it should also be acknowledged that these flaws are fewer in number than those I have encountered in some traditionally published classics, so they remain a minor irritation and nothing more.
The characters are varied and interesting, each a unique blend of characteristics that work well for the role they play - the hard headed boss, the investigators with tough exteriors, or the mysterious nemesis, all of them are very finely crafted.
Book 1Raine and Gavin are both really well developed. The reader feels as though they come to know them well, although the secrets of their pasts are only hinted at, keeping the reader guessing about their back stories and the inner conflicts each one conceals. These complexities are compounded by sexual tension between them that is so ripe, it's about to fall off the vine. The frisson of energy that results adds to the intrigue and suspense of the story, building and rumbling like not-so-distant thunder as theIr individual investigations deepen and interweave.
The story is action-packed and suspenseful. While some satisfying resolution is achieved within the story arc, there remain some tantalising questions and connections that tie this book to the next in the series.
All in all, this is a riveting read that, once started, is very hard to set down.
