It was all supposed to be a Quick Fix, but how often does anything ever go in the right direction for Ciel Halligan?
An easy job is never simple, but Ciel thought she had it in the bag until Molly (her "cousin") begins to develop her adapter abilities, and turns into an Orangutan. But that isn't even the worst part, everything seems to go downhill after that.
Linda Grimes has created something so unique and fun, all of the characters are wonderfully created and funny! It is easy to enjoy reading Grimes' books.
I didn't just enjoy this book because of the love triangle between Billy, Ciel, and Mark. There is so much more to love. All of the characters were fun to read, plus the plot was correctly paced. I didn't think anything moved too fast or too slow, there was enough to keep the story going without being unnecessary. Plus the curve balls were unexpected and exciting.
Anyone who is a fan of Urban Fantasy should start this series. If you've read the first book, you need to get your hands on Quick Fix!
QUICK FIX—the second installment of the original urban fantasy series by LINDA GRIMES.
Ciel Halligan, an aura adaptor with a chameleon-like ability to step into the lives of her clients and fix their problems for them—as them—is working a job at the National Zoo with her boyfriend, Billy, and his ten-year-old sister, Molly. It's supposed to be a quick fix, giving her time to decide if it's wise to pursue the romantic relationship her charming scoundrel of a best friend wants, or if she should give Mark, the CIA spook she's crushed on since hormones first rattled her pubescent brain, a chance to step up to the plate.
Molly has already begun to show signs of being an adaptor herself. She's young for it, but she's always been precocious, so it's not impossible. What is impossible is her taking on the form of the baby orangutan she touches—adaptors can only project human auras. Until now, apparently. Worse, Molly is stuck in ape form. She can't change herself back.
Escaping from the zoo with their new baby orang, Ciel and Billy head for New York City and the only person they know can help: Ciel's brother James, a non-adaptor scientist who's determined to crack the aura adaptor genetic code. But when Billy winds up in jail, accused of attempted murder, Ciel begins to suspect Molly's unusual adapting ability is more than just a fluke. Who's been experimenting on Molly, and what do they hope to gain? And will Ciel survive to find out?
