Review: Books, Bulls and Bacchanals
I really enjoyed this murder mystery with Dio and Leander. The two of them are so different yet have similar issues to work through. Leander’s back story is heartbreaking to say the least. Dio is just a delight all around.
Wonderful story with plenty of mystery and some hot action between Dio and Leander.
I personally did not care for this story about Artemis and Ing. First it’s female, female which I do not care for. Second it did not feel complete. It cuts off shortly after the two meet.
*Pixie*~~ It’s a short or more like an interlude where Ing, who believes in the old Gods because of her Grandmothers stories, stumbles across some young ladies dancing in the snow. Ing who feels out of place in her own family feels an immediate connection to Artemis.
It’s a cute short, too short to give much more than a ‘I liked it’, it would be interesting to see if a more fleshed out story of Artemis and Ing was in the future.
Pack Up the Moon
In this story Charon, the ferryman, plays a starring role as well as Azeban, the raccoon lesser god. Azeban is forced to do an ancient beings bidding. There is no way out that he can see until Charon takes an interest. Once the plan is revealed it will take a miracle or two to thwart the god’s plan.
I loved this story. Suspense, mayhem, love and learning to trust others. Azeban and Charon made a hot couple.
I really enjoyed most of the stories in this book. Each one added an extra layer of mystery to the overall feel except for the second book. All it added was two extra characters. Aside from that the investigations were done brilliantly. The conclusions to each case were awesome.
