The story centres around Elle an enchantress that basically isn't aware of just how powerful she is, or really what she is, thanks to the coven. That was about to change thanks to Niall.
Finding out what she is, while investigating an insurance claim, is hard enough, never mind having people wanting to kill you.
This book just keeps on giving, and the story twists and turns, to keep you turning those pages.
I took a chance with this, and bought the box set. Sooooo glad I did, because as soon as I'd finished reading it, I went straight onto book two
I quickly became engrossed in the story and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a twist on the usual supernatural tales with the witch/vampire angle. There are a few things unexplained but, if you think about what Elle is, you'll quickly work it out.
Good characters and location, it flows well too.
Though the book was short on pages this did not in any way reflect on the quality of the content. It was full on from first to last page.
A new type of witch, well maybe new to me. Liked the subtle vampire tag. It opens up a whole new way of looking at a witch magic type. By the end of the book what this means becomes much clearer and will make for interesting storylines as the series progresses.
The love interest was quick in coming and I have to say it was a pretty blunt introduction to what looks like a definite long term relationship.
The actual storyline was very cleverly thought out and our heroine's deduction on how the "artifact" was stollen was so cleverly conceived that I have concerns about the authors past life.
The three main characters still alive at the end of the story were also cleverly constructed and have already become " real ". A remarkable achievement. And will no doubt continue to enthrall in the books to follow.
The cliff hanger ending was very cleverly left. I have no alternative but to see how the story progresses. I can already see a number of possible scenarios and I am looking forward to see if any of my ideas are right.
A big thank you to the author for a great book which I readily recommend to snyone, not only fantasy fans, who can enjoy an excellent story.
But I also felt that the whole thing rolled along a little too smoothly. N. goes to great lengths to meet Elle, but we never discover how he even knew about her to begin with. We never learn when, why or how exactly he fell so deeply in love with her, unless it's just a matter of 'we're the only two like us so we should be together.' That seems pretty weak to me. There is defiantly some insta-love on Elle's part, however. Then there is Rebecca and Everett, who can blithely acknowledge Elle's burgeoning feelings and tell her to arrange to kill that person in the same conversation. Seems a little unrealistic to me. Could they really expect compliance? Elle solves the missing art case, seemingly without any clues and in the end manages to resume her life despite the coven's long standing policy of eradication against her kind. Yep, everything is resolved just a little too easily.
On a side note I also didn't find the book to match the description very well. The bad-boy werewolf is already found when the book starts and he's an overwhelmed lawyer with mother issues, not a bad boy at all. For most of the book Elle is a decidedly weak enchantress, not the darn good witch described. (In this particular story there is a divide between witches and enchantresses, so not the same thing.) And she isn't assigned back to back cases. She is an insurance agent who solves cases with a little magical assistance though and she is on the case of a missing piece of art. Maybe these are small details, but still...
Despite the above points, it was an entertaining enough read for an evening. The writing seemed fairly smooth and I didn't notice many, if any, editorial mishaps.
