When a simple ‘find & fetch’ case throws private investigator Twig Starfig and newly-minted wizard, Quinn Broomsparkle, into the middle of an EBI murder investigation, it’s just another day in the Elder Realm.
If murder were Twig’s only problem, he’d be the luckiest half-dragon in the land. Murder he can handle. Fulfilling his promise to his scheming, power-hungry father to run for a seat on Lighthelm’s city council? Meh, he’d rather face a demon with a toothache.
On top of their case going sideways, and Twig running for a council seat he really doesn’t want, Twig and Quinn are forced to face some unpleasant realities about their budding romance, while still learning how to handle the wizard-familiar bond they now share. Throw in a red fury with abysmal taste in boyfriends, a ghost pirate-parrot who drinks too much, a murderer who will stop at nothing to get what they want, a host of new friends and enemies, and you’ve got a situation where no one is safe and everyone is Fairy Game.
*This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone.
Review: The gang is back in this sequel to solve new cases. Quinn, Twig and Bill are close. Bill considers them family. Pie is still searching for a way to find his former pirate captain. There are several new characters added and several deaths that are thrown into the investigation. Not to mention Twig’s dad is getting assassination attempts made on his life.
To put it mildly there is a lot going on in this book. Twig is still having a problem with Quinn’s ability to control him which he does not like. Quinn for his part understands that Twig wants to mate but he hesitant to do so. My mind was spinning as this story payed out. There were twists and turns galore. Magic, darkness and danger seemed in abundance throughout.
It was roller coaster ride for sure as Twig and Quinn threw themselves into solving cases as well as struggling with their own issues with each other. A great cast of characters added depth and mystery and a sense of suspense as the cases played out and clues gathered.
Great addition to the series.
