Serenity has had a hard life. She was abandoned by her father as a child and raised by a woman who took her in and helped her to survive. Serenity quickly became fascinated with weaving and the cards. A man who became her friend, Jack, saw potential in her and called her a prodigy with the cards. When he dies she leaves with another to learn more about weaving since the scholars refuse to train her up more until she bends to what they want and believe. Her journey to becoming what she is is a dangerous one but it is the path that she chooses to walk. But where is the path ultimately leading?
When I first started reading this book I had no idea what was going on so I set it down for a bit and then came back to it. Once I did that I became engaged into the story and putting it down again was not an easy task. The story moves rather smoothly between past and present. When I first noticed the shift in time I was a bit surprised at how smoothly the transition happened. Normally that would be a point of complaint for me, that the story just shift without warning but I found that I actually enjoyed the story more because of it happened so seamlessly. There are flashbacks and then there are actual moments of where Serenity is actually reliving what has already happened.
She is a strong character and you discover why throughout the story as we are given several scenes not just from her past but as she is forging ahead to find the man who killed her beloved teacher and friend. There are moments where I became annoyed with her because she became stubborn and reckless. The demon is part of her and so he needs her to stay alive but there are moments of where she goes too far. When she does there are moments of where he actually lashes out at her. I hate to say it but I fully supported him in those moments and quite often in moments of where he simply shows his annoyance with her based on her actions and decisions.
This is the second book that I have read by this author and I have to say that it is probably my favorite one so far. I enjoyed this book so much. I loved the paranormal, the mystery and the mixing together of the "Old West" with some steampunk like elements of just development and engineering. The author does a fantastic job with this book and pulls you in to a unique world that is unlike most that we have read about.
I really hope to read more books like this one in the future from this author. I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. This one is definitely a winner in my book.
This was an interesting book and well written. Usually a story with a lot of flashbacks can be a bit disconcerting, but the change of timing from past to present in The Pact only enhances the story. Serenity is a very strong character who has a goal in life and will pursue it no matter what. Even an attraction to another Black Guild weaver does not make her stray from her path. At times the story sent a shiver down my spine, but I had to finish reading the book.
I’m not sure whether I liked this book, but the story certainly made me want to carry on reading. It had depth and passion, not romantic passion, but the type of determination and fieriness which makes the strong, but likable character that is Serenity.

Serenity is the main character in this book and she rocks it by casting runes. She is brilliant and just a great character who is well developed all around and kicks ass. This is such a interesting story line you won't want to put it down. She truly does risk is all to find out her past.
Plus this cover is rocking! If you love some fantasy/paranormal and want a awesome storyline in the "wild west" this is for you. Highly recommend this one.
The Pact is a tale set in the weird west, where demons roam and magic creeps through reality. You can expect a tale of vengeance, heartbreak, and hope as Serenity Walker scours the land to search for a long lost killer. Along the way she encounters demons, death and heartbreak as she struggles to find the one responsible for murdering her mentor and bring him to justice.
If you love the supernatural, fantasy, and old west, then you will love The Pact! I'm really looking forward to the second book!
