Publisher’s Description: When the deal you need isn’t the one you want
To protect Vega and her son from the demon-vampire Arnaud, I’ve secured spots for them in a powerful safehouse. The price? Pledging my services to the Upholders, a group searching for stolen loved ones.
My new teammates are a young minister, a snarky half-fae, a hulking mermaid, and a druid with major control issues. Bonded by said druid’s magic, I couldn’t wriggle out of this deal if I were coated in wizard’s oil.
Now we’re hunting demons in a past version of New York City that’s on the bad side of strange. But I can’t stop thinking about Arnaud. He’s too close to the ones I cherish, and growing more lethal by the hour. He’s also gotten his talons on an enchanted item that could undo their protection.
I need to fulfill my contract to the Upholders and race home. But dangers here are mounting, verging on biblical. If I don’t crank my magic to eleven and become the leader this team needs, I may never see Vega again…
Or hold our future child.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
I love Prof.Croft. He’s a little like Harry Dresden, but has so far kept himself alive. He’s also got a significant other with a child on the way. The child was a bit of a blind side, but now that I’m used to it, it’s pretty cool.
In this story, Everson is not catching even one break. Everything seems to be going wrong and when things go wrong it usually means someone dies. Everson is trying to protect his family from Arnaud the vampire, who has now become a demon too. What a mess. Arnaud is still power hungry and has one major objective of killing Everson before he takes over the world. Problem for Arnaud is that he is being controlled by a demon lord and he has less freedom than he wants. Arnaud is ambitious and willing to sell his own mother for a step up the power ladder. The other goal for Everson is to figure out where the “strangers” are taking the captured species for control by demons. There are druids, mer-people and fae that are having their souls stolen and replaced by demons. Everson has made a deal to help, but the head Druid is a hard head and absolutely will not listen to Everson’s advice. He jeopardizes the mission more than once.
This is a fast paced story that has a lot of action. Everson meets Ricki’s fam, which doesn’t go as well as hoped and, like I said, Everson could not catch a break even if it stood inches in front of him.
Good story. I give it a 4.
