License to Ensorcell: A Nola O’Grady novel is the first in the new urban fantasy series featuring a psychic agent who uses her clairvoyant and oracular powers for a secret government agency. When a new case involves the forces of “Chaos”, Nola is assigned to solve why someone is murdering werewolves without being seen. To complicate matters, Ari Nathan, an Israeli agent is also trying to solve the case as well for Interpol who just thinks whoever is doing it is psychotic while Nola knows the killer is actually murdering real werewolves. Add to the mix Nola’s Irish family who live close to her and who she is trying desperately to not involve in her cases. However, it looks like they may already be involved as the killer’s first victim was her younger Pat, a lycanthrope. The novel is a very quick and easy read. It is enjoyable with an enjoyable world, with a simple mystery with a bit of humor and a dash of romance to keep you entertained. The only weak part to the book for me was the villain, but not enough to take away from the book itself. I give this one a 4.5 star rating and look forward to reading any future sequels! This is recommend for fans of urban fantasy who like psychic detective work, a bit of gun play and secret agencies.
Psychic Agent Nola O'Grady isn't sure returning to San Francisco, and living near her unusual family, is a good idea. Her job, with a psychic agency so obscure even the CIA doesn't know it exists, can be perilous, and she's afraid of the relatives getting involved.
Then the Agency saddles her with Israeli secret agent Ari Nathan, and she has a bigger problem on her hands, because tact and compromise are not Ari's strong points. Their mission is to track down a serial killer obsessed with werewolves. He sees them everywhere and shoots whenever he thinks he has one in his sights. Ari assumes the man's psychotic, but in truth he's murdering actual werewolves. Nola should know. Her younger brother Pat, a lycanthrope, was the first victim.
Can Nola's psychic talents and Ari's skill with guns keep them alive long enough to unravel the greater mystery behind the killings? Can they save the werewolves and the world while stopping Nola's family from running headlong into danger?
