In the third Book in the series Cesar Hawke, witch turned enforcer of the Magical Violations Department ( or police keeper for the supernatural community) is in pursuit of a killer with supernatural abilities that doesn't just kill victims but removes part of their body for reasons unknown.
Cesar, himself a complicated character who lacks confidence and bravo (but also has the gift of luck in the most part) also finds himself in trouble with the leader of the OPA, Lucrezia de Angelis.

Although I am a fan of SM Reine I found this book a bit disappointing because although there was a good mysterious story line it lacked substance with a lot of the book centering on Cesar's lack of confidence and focus as well as his "relationship" with Isobel. However I did enjoy getting to know the character of Fritz Friederling,Cesar's bosses,better. His character was more developed and more intriguing in this book, as he is was often - present but had limited impact, in earlier books. To me he is the star of this book as he seems to evolve from his behind the scene part to develop a strong personality.

By J. Lesley TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 28 Jun. 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
This novel is the third in the Preternatural Affairs series. I read a lot of urban fantasy so jumping into an established series is not normally a problem for me and this one certainly gave me no trouble with understanding the premise and the characters. I just didn't enjoy the book enough to continue with the series or catch up on what came before. The magic involved is pretty much paper thin with a main character that doesn't seem to know a whole lot about how to manipulate that magic. Does he even know what he is capable of doing? It certainly didn't seem like he did and his utilization of magic during the big climactic event left me thinking it had happened more by accident or luck than intent.

Cesar Hawke is the main character in this novel and yet he felt like the weakest of all the characters that surround him. He definitely did not seem like an alpha male in personality type or in magical ability. Cesar remained weak for me, the one who had to be given help with magic he needed to perform. I also had trouble picturing him as a man in my thoughts and only when it was necessary for him to rely on physical muscularity did his masculinity seem as if it really played a prominent role while Cesar's boss, Fritz Friederling, had strong male gender characterization. Even Helltown was a disappointment since the location appeared to me to be under-utilized as a frightening location and too close to normal during a lot of the action.

I received an ARC of this novel through NetGalley. The opinions expressed are my own.

Really love sm reines. I like cesar and his team and the scrapes they get into . It keeps you interested to the end . I enjoy how the characters evolve and all the books refer to pass cases that you've read about but don't bore you by going over the same history the urban fantasy books are a great read .

I love all sorts of books and,at the age of almost 80,I've read a lot!There are so many urban fantasy novels around now,some dreadful,some quite good,some very good,but there aren't many really,really enjoyable,well-written ones that make one impatient to read the next in series immediately one finishes .
This series does just that and I've grown to love all the characters and their interactions,I adore Cesar,the pumped-up ,brave but diffident about his witchy powers hero and as for Fritz!! Wow!
So,S.M.Raine,your books are truly loved and appreciated by this old lady.Thank you so much.

I enjoyed this book so much. So many seamless references to the rest of SM Reine's universe. Cesar is funny and flawed and a great narrator. There is more to Fritz than meets the eye I think! Can't wait for the next one!

This series must be read in order. The first book is Witch Hunt. The second book is Silver Bullet. This is the third book.

Cèsar is a witch allergic to magic in more ways than one. He just might be in completely over his head this time though! If he fails this test he is dead... Literally. It is do or die time... And he hasn't even really studied! And to make matters worse he is now embroiled in the prank call case because his partner Suzie twisted his arm. What else could go wrong? How series can this prank possibly be? Will he pass the test or die trying?

Cèsar never dissapoints as a snarky and self deprecating hero who always prevails no matter the odds! I LOVE this series and how it sucks you in from page one and refuses to spit you out until the end! The mysteries and thrills speed the action and adventure to a fever pitch leaving you on pins and needles trying to figure just who the real monster in need of cancelation truly is :) I can't wait to read the next one Shadow Burns !!!

***This series is suitable for adult readers who like snark and mayhem in their preternatural crime mystery/thrillers along with a healthy dose of humor and addictiveness :D
