I’ve got to admit that I’m a big fan of R.L. Naquin. I loved Monster Haven and found it to be extremely creative. With that said, I couldn’t wait to read this spin off series. Several of the characters are from the previous series but this series feels fresh, new and enticing. The world that is developed is fantastic. From the Leprechaun Mafia to multiple dimensions, there seems to be something new to discover in almost every chapter. Everything comes alive and meshes well together as the mystery of missing souls is explored and magical wagers are placed. In between the action is a romance that started 100 years ago but never really explored. Now, it is going to be put to the test without ever having a date! There are also strong friendships that are reinforced or started. I just love all the different types of magical beings in this story and how each is a little quirky. This book is really fun to read and though it is a romance, I feel fantasy lovers will enjoy it too.
Kam joined the Hidden Government as a soul chaser after everything started to settle down. She knows she will never have enough power built up to return to the realm of the Jinn. But, she can still be useful with her team of reapers collecting souls. When the team is sent to a riverboat casino to find out why there seems to be so many missing souls seen there, they feel like they are almost being sent on a vacation. That thought quickly changes when they discover someone is using magic throughout the casino. Kam has another problem when the fiancé she’s been running from shows up. She’s loved him since she was a child but he has always seen her as his best friend’s little sister. Is it time to stop running? When Tahm is captured, Kam isn’t sure if that is even a question or concern.
Fans of R.L. Naquin's Monster Haven series will love this beguiling spin-off, starring a djinn caught in a hot mess of lost souls, food trucks and otherworldly murder.
Hidden Government chaser Kam's luck might finally be changing. Her team of reapers is sent to a riverboat casino to investigate a suspicious increase in missing souls--a job that sounds more like a vacation than an assignment. A little drinking, a little gambling and maybe a little romance with Tahm, the fiancé she's not sure she wants to run from anymore.
Plans for fun and games are canceled, though, when they find the pesky Leprechaun Mafia is behind the mischief. Of course they are.
Before Kam and her team can spring into action, the leprechauns make good on their threat to capture Tahm.
How far will Kam go to break her true love out of confinement? Working in the casino to pay off some of his debt is one thing, but it could mean Kam spends another hundred years locked up in his stead...
