*Contains Very MINOR SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous books in this series.
The Good: Kelly Gay continues to weave awesome stories and unveil such an intricate and compelling world that you can’t help but fall in love with this series and its characters. Charlie is even more lovable for me in this novel and Hank is gaining a lot of space in my heart as a potential leading man.
I love that Charlie is a mom, it something we don’t often see in Urban Fantasy and it definitely adds another layer to characterization.
The Bad: I can’t really thing of anything... wow! Awesome!
The Romance: We’re not quite there yet, but the potential is there and this series getting very close of being epic in the romance department.
