Okayish is the best word I can come up with to describe this book.
It is a fairly run of the mill urban fantasy novel. Of the books that I have read in this series this one is somewhere in the middle. Not the worst and not the best.
Angelica, aka the Morrigan, is rather enjoyable and she does surround herself with some fairly enjoyable characters. This Abhartach guy was a decent comic relief. Too bad the author made that character go sour a bit in the, unfortunately obligatory apparently, cliff-hanger. Her whisky drinking mentor is always fun.
The story is decent although I’m getting a bit tired of the Cernunnos story arc. I’m also pretty damned tired of the constant flashbacks. For me the books would work better without them.
Overall a pretty average book. I cannot really find much to say about it. It follows the other six books in the series and it is pretty much in the same style except of course that Angelica has developed a lot since those first books.
One thing it has going for it of course is that it refrains from the usual teenage wet dream episodes that are way too common in urban fantasy novels.
Read worthy but that’s about it.
