Format: Paperback
The first novel in the Preternatural Affairs series is an intriguing and action packed urban fantasy.

An agent with Office of Preternatural Affairs, Cesar Hawke finds himself on the wrong side of the law when he wakes up with a hangover, scratches on his arm, a discharged Glock on his coffee table and dead body in his bathtub. On the run and searching for a shaman, he finds Isobel Stonecrow who is now on the OPA’s most wanted list for resurrecting someone for the wrong client. With her, he can clear his name, get his job back and get justice for the victim, really how hard could it be?

This fast paced plot keeps the reader on the edge of their seats with lots of action, suspense and a magic spell or two. The author brings the story to life with vivid images, great dialogue and strong compelling characters that the reader can easily relate to. Lots of fantastic supporting characters and a story that keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end.

There isn’t any romance just a little flirting here and there and some sexual innuendo and talk involving incubi. The story focuses on Cesar dodging the law and bad guys while trying to clear his name. The author spices things up by keeping not only the reader guessing, but Cesar as well as his not sure who can be trusted.

The author has created a fantastic urban fantasy world involving magic and demons with some surprising twists that the reader doesn’t see coming. Once started, it’s impossible to put the book down until the very last word is read. Oh and did I mention there is a few ghosts involved as well?

I really enjoyed this book with its great characters and intriguing plot. I really enjoyed the fact that I wasn’t sure who the culprit was until the end and I am looking forward to reading more cases involving the Office of Preternatural Affairs.

I found this book enjoyable but a bit of a letdown.

First off, the plot got increasingly convoluted as time went on. It started off as the simple “I’ve been framed for murder” plot, but it became harder and harder to follow as the story progressed. There was too much flip-flopping on which characters were allies and not, and whether or not something had actually happened, and…there were places I got lost and couldn’t figure out for the life of me what I supposed to think about a certain event.

Secondly, I didn’t like how the story drops me into the middle of a complex setting without giving me time to adjust. I didn’t really feel anything for most of the characters because the story drops us right into the middle of Cesar’s issues with zero opportunity to learn about his life. He says certain characters should mean certain things — friends, bosses, coworkers, etc. — but I didn’t actually feel any connections to them because I had no opportunity to meet them.

The intermittent appearances of most of the characters didn’t help. The book would let me start to get to know a character, and then Cesar would leave that character’s company, and the next time we came around to that character, Cesar would be looking at him/her in a different light from before, and then I wouldn’t know what to think. It was kind of irritating. I couldn’t get an accurate read on anybody. I didn’t who I was supposed to care about.

Third, I found the pacing a bit wonky at times. It gets way too fast at some points, and that certainly didn’t lend to my understanding of the frankly confusing plot.

Fourth (and finally), Cesar could not stop talking about how hot and sexy the women around him were. Yes, every woman was super sexy and gorgeous and apparently attracted to Cesar.

Witch Hunt

When Cesar Hawke decides to have a bad week, he doesn't scrimp on the bad. He wakes up with a waitress that he has been lusting after and finally took home the night before,dead in his bathtub. He drank so much Tequila the previous night, that he can't remember anything that happened. All he knows for sure is that he isn't the one that killed her, he's not that kind of a guy. He knows he needs to call his partner at the Office of Preternatural Affairs to come and help him figure everything out, but before she can get there the LAPD shows up. He is being royally set up.

After a brief stint in jail, Cesar finally figures out that everyone believes he did it and if he wants to find the real killer he will need to investigate this case himself. So he breaks out of jail and begins to uncover
more secrets and office corruption than he ever wanted to know. But what he doesn't find is the answer to who did it, and why they set him up.

Enter Isobel Stonecrow, she is a witch who is said to be able to raise the dead. Before his world started to self destruct, he was tasked with finding the witch and bringing her in for trial. But Cesar thought that if Isobel really could raise and talk to the dead, maybe they could raise Isobel and they could find out who really killed Erin and framed him.

Join Cesar and Isobel as they search for answers, neither knows who they can trust and why they are being set up. All they know is that they must try and solve this murder before they move up on the killers "to do" list.

I really enjoyed this book, it is the beginning of a great new series. It has everything we want in a book, sexy secret agents who have big guns and know how to use them. Download this book and enjoy the ride, you will be glad you did.
