There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The magic played a much smaller role in the book time-wise, but when it came, it served as an effective catalyst to turn the plot and alter the time a bit right before it changed dramatically. That segue was necessary, in my opinion. Kudos to Larkin for recognising what was needed and adroitly fitting it into the tale.
This is another one where I felt the sex was unnecessary, but at least there was a point to it and logic (twisted logic, but still logic) in why each character chose to engage in it. There was also more violence in this one, but considering the mission Bell and Black were on, that was only to be expected.
And while it is clear up front that there is a touch of fantasy in these stories, I couldn’t help wishing that Emily Larkin had written this as a conventional story. It didn’t really need the fantasy component. It seemed to me that it oversimplified the story by giving too easy solutions to serious problems. I believed her characters to be perfectly capable of solving their challenges without the help of magic. I would certainly read such a novel by her.
Wish Amazon allowed half stars, as I would have then given 3.5 stars, but wanted to make sure to convey that this is a well written story deserving of the time taken to read it.

Good storyline with feisty heroine and gorgeous hero.
Excellent story and like the others based on factually correct social history.
