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.
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.
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.
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
