The papers call the serial killer the Midnight Monster. Gabriel Jones, the new Master of the Arcane Society, has given Thaddeus the job of finding out the name of the killer and stopping him. The killer is not only an intelligent madman, but is also a Hunter. Using a Hunter's psychical abilities means that the normal police would never capture him. When Leona crashes into Thaddeus, he immediately sets out to get her to safety. However, it turns out that the lady is after the same artifact he is. Circumstances soon compel the two to join forces. For Leona's protection, she and her extraordinary dog, Fog, move into a townhouse with Thaddeus and his formidable great-aunt.
Another secret society, The Third Circle of the Order of the Emerald Tablet, has been promised the Aurora Stone as a gift from Lord Delbridge and they are en route to pick it up. The Third Circle will also need someone able to work the crystal. It just so happens that Lord Delbridge knows about Leona's crystal talents.
**** Let me say first off that you should NOT read the first four books of this series in order of release.Read more ›
I've been a fan of Amanda Quick for years, her stories have always been something I could rely on to just be simple romance without being explicit. This book, however, fails. Don't get me wrong, the story is good, the plot while never ending was exciting and kept me reading without losing interest. Even the characters kept my attention, I find myself worrying more and more about Caleb.
Unfortunately what I've noticed is that in the process of creating a good plot romance tends to suffer. And while I love Thaddeus and Leona there wasn't any romantic build up that I've always known Amanda Quick for, or maybe I just wish the sex had happened later rather than sooner. I miss the sexual build up that has been missing from the Arcane society books.Read more ›
Not pleasant at all is the reaction of Lord Delbridge--the man from whom the two steal the crystal. Delbridge needs that crystal desperately--with it, he'll be allowed membership in the elite Third Circle. Without it, not only will his application be denied, the Third Circle might decide he knows too much. Unfortunately for Leona and Thaddeus, Delbridge is intelligent and has hired a serial killer as an assistant (hence the body).
Author Amanda Quick writes a fun and sexy story. As with many of Quick's heroines, Leona is an intriguing (improbable) mix of innocence and energy--who finds sex to be just the thing. Secondary characters with lots of quirks add amusing touches to the adventure. Thaddeus doesn't really know what hits him when Leona moves into his life--but he serves as a stabilizing force in Leona's Mercurial life.
THE THIRD CIRCLE isn't Quick's strongest work, but it is an entertaining read. I found this one hard to put down.
