With the defeat of the evil Douglas behind him, Sam LaCroix is getting used to his new life. Okay, so he hadn’t exactly planned on being a powerful necromancer with a seat on the local magical council and a capricious werewolf sort-of-girlfriend, but things are going fine, right?
Well . . . not really. He’s pretty tired of getting beat up by everyone and their mother, for one thing, and he can’t help but feel that his new house hates him. His best friend is a werebear, someone is threatening his sister, and while Sam realizes that he himself has a lot of power at his fingertips, he’s not exactly sure how to use it. Which, he has to admit, is a bit disconcerting.
But when everything starts falling apart, he decides it’s time to step up and take control. His attempts to do so just bring up more questions, though, the most important of which is more than a little alarming: Is Douglas really dead?
Oh my God! I thought the first one was amazing, I gave it five stars (bats). Well this one is even more amazing and I give it five stars (bats) again! Sorry I don’t have a rating more than five.
I grabbed this audiobook even though I was a little nervous about it being a book two. I’ve been having a bad streak with book twos. Most of them have been angsty let downs. Not this one! It was funny and charming and I loved it. Sam has to figure out how to come into his own and his how to deal with some very big issues like pack dynamics, how to run his very scary household, how to be a council member and how to deal with break up (seems like all book twos have break ups…).
I really recommend this series if you’re looking for something to make you laugh and give you a different take on the supernatural world. A take that hasn’t been overdone.
