The second novel in the Disenchanted & Co. series is intriguing and magical.
Kit agrees to interview a newly widowed potential client as a favor for the deathmage Lucien Dredmore. Upon meeting however, she learns that the lady in question is someone who once led a vicious campaign to ruin Kit’s life and now ironically who fears for herself, for the press is about to unmask her husband as the savage “Wolfman” who died while terrorizing the city. Kit soon determines that there is more than one Wolfman and that they themselves may be victims of evil and follows a tangled path that leads to a vengeful native tribe and dangerous ancient magics.
This steady to fast paced plot keeps the reader on their toes with lots of suspense and action. The author describes this alternate reality fantasy with well written words and the events with vivid images that make it easy for the reader to get caught up in the story. The characters are strong and bewitching and have the reader wanting to know more.
The romance between Kit and Dredmore continues to be rocky and intriguing adding more spice to the story. Kit makes a great heroine she’s feisty, independent and is a strong woman in what is mostly a man’s world. The author certainly portrays the emotions and personalities of the characters with a vibrancy that makes them life like.
The world is fascinating and the book is an enjoyable read and I have decided that I like this novel better than I did the first one, but I still like the Darkyn series better.
