5 STARS - ANOTHER AMAZING ADEPT NOVEL - I was so excited to finally get my hands on Wisteria's story. The interactions in other books had intrigued me and - as with so many other characters of Meghan's - I wanted to know more about her. This book is another amazing addition to the Adept universe books. Witty dialogue, fast paced action and characters you can't get enough of. Fans of the other books will love this new series just as much as the others! Can't wait for more - AMAZON USA REVIEWER

Don't mistake me; it's a good book. But,
There's a little bit too much vagueness about a mysterious, painful event that is mentioned throughout the book, a lot. I started getting annoyed with Wisteria's attitude & actions towards Kett. This didn't help me relate to, or have too much interest in Wisteria the person. I didn't feel the menace and darkness enough. I know how well MCD can sink the reader into the moment and it doesn't happen enough or to depth. And a personal pet peeve...a wee bit overkill on describing the inanimate, e.g. places, clothes, cars, buildings, food.
Kett is a staple in all the Dowsers, and he is well rounded there and here. Wisteria needs some fleshing out and more concentration on her nifty job as a reconstrutionist.
MCD will get us there. There is huge potential to this side series. No matter what, she rocks.
I was also tickled to see one of the characters was named after my son, Declan (not really but I can pretend). It’s like my own personal Easter egg.
Blending some new characters with old, this first book in the Reconstructionist series explores the Adept world from the POV of Wisteria Fairchild, a witch with a very specific skill set. Wisteria can reconstruct magical scenes, usually in conjunction with helping solve a crime involving the supernatural.
In this case, she gets pushed out of her carefully constructed comfort zone when Kett, an elder the vampire Conclave, requests her aid in solving the deaths of teenage boys who have been partially turned into vampires. Though she has strong values regarding the use of her magic and her role in the Adept world, Wisteria finds that she needs to help these boys despite risks to her personal safety.
There are hints of a dark past and magical potential as yet not realized, providing nice internal conflict along with the plot-driven action.
For those of us familiar with Kett from the Dowser series, viewing him through Wisteria’s eyes is quite enlightening. He really gets to show us more of his character in this book, and it’s a tad unsettling.
You can dive right in with this book but I highly recommend following the author’s reading order of all of the series.
