Thea Harrison is a new to me author, but I will definitely be looking into her other works. This story was a gripping read full of twists and turns with complex characters. I also loved the fact that Molly was a mature woman, not your typical heroine in fantasy novels. Even though an awful lot is going on in this book plot-wise, the author does an excellent job in balancing out the details, so the reader isn’t overwhelmed. I look forward to reading more in this story and discovering more about the background characters.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review all thoughts and opinions are my own.
