Blurb: Strange things are happening all around Brinnswick. Things that remind me of a piece of my past I’d rather forget. Girls are being killed, drained of blood, and left with strange markings on their bodies. When I finally connect the cases together, a specialist is called in—though, what he’s a specialist of is beyond me.
When the chief assigns him as my new partner for the case, I can’t help but groan on the inside. Why of all people would I be assigned to Ailin Ellwood? The man is a disaster waiting to happen and a jerk to boot. A sexy jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.
What will Sebastian think when he discovers Ailin’s specialty? Will he make a run for it or will he stick around and discover a world of magic hidden beneath the city’s surface?
***The Enchanter’s Flame is the first book in the Ellwood Chronicles. It’s a paranormal romance that contains explicit material and is intended for mature adults 18 and over.***
Review: Sebastian is partnered with Ailin after a string of ritualistic murders to help find the perpetrator and bring him to justice. But there is more going on than Seb realizes as he is drawn further and further into the case. Seb for his part has no knowledge of his parents having been raised in a group home. Ailin is more than he portrays and revelations come to light when Seb is attacked and almost killed by the demon they are hunting.
Intriguing story with many characters and twists and turns that add to the story to help it come to life. The murders are horrifying and the actual villain is scary but for all that I was more fascinated with Seb from the start. He seemed more than he was but had no clue. I was astonished when his secret, that he had no knowledge of, came out.
A great mystery/thriller with plenty of details and characters that keep you reading until the very end.
