I had seen this book in the new and popular section of my library, so when the opportunity came up to own it for for free, I jumped at it! I found this book to be very interesting. I didn’t realize that this book was the second one a series, so that was a little bit off-puttting. I am pretty strict about reading series in order and wanted to go back and read the first one. However, I found it wasn’t too detrimental to not have the first novel read, the book does take place 17 years later, so chronologically a lot has happened between the two books.
The story was fun. As with most murder mysteries, it gets a little convoluted and there are some false leads. The end was satisfying and I enjoyed the use of magic to aid the detective aspect. I may just end up going back and reading the first book. There is another book to be released, so I am looking forward to that.
