My only complaints are that I'm never pleased with the whole scorned woman turns villainous trope and some of the challenges were overcome a bit too easily. Though, to be fair, they weren't meant to be the focus of the book anyhow.
What can I say, I finished the book and immediately looked for more Gingell stories.
King Markon of Montalier is trying to break his son's curse before more young women are hurt or go missing. He is in the process of giving up hope and ending the search for a woman who can survive Parrin's attention. And poor Parrin, all he does is smile at a poor girl and she ends up in the hospital.
Enter Althea of Avernse the enchantress. I loved Althea. I enjoyed her incredible intelligence and that she wasn't too overpowered. She has a history that is fleshed out as the story plays out, and in my opinion, it fit very well as a supporting plot. W. R. Gingell consistently impresses me with her strong female characters. Not once have I come across a generic female character in her stories. She is a talented enchantress without being over-powered.
Markon's role as narrator put an interesting twist on the book, he's almost the Watson to Althea's Sherlock. Althea is clever, self-confident, and sometimes prone to rash decisions (kissing Parrin anyone?). Markon compliments her well, and they work together to save the poor girls and find out how to break the curse.
The secondary characters come dangerously close to outshining Markon and Althea. Carmine was my particular favorite. He's fae, so you know he's tricky, but he's just so endearing. The interpersonal relationships carried the book more than the action/adventure but the mystery was interesting and had a great resolution.
The romance is clean, few bodily injuries, and a happily ever after.
Another addition to my recommended list.
