Librarian Sebastian Rath is the only one who believes his friend Kelly O’Neil disappeared due to foul play. But without any clues or outside assistance, there’s nothing he can do to prove it.

When bookbinder Vesper Rune is hired to fill the vacancy left by O’Neil, he receives an ominous letter warning him to leave. After he saves Sebastian from a pair of threatening men, the two decide to join forces and get to the truth about what happened to O’Neil.

But Vesper is hiding secrets of his own, ones he doesn’t dare let anyone learn. Secrets that grow ever more dangerous as his desire for Sebastian deepens.

Because Kelly O’Neil was murdered. And if Sebastian and Ves don’t act quickly enough, they’ll be the next to die.

REJOICE !!!!!!! Fans of Jordan Hawk……Jordan has begun a New Series!!!! Most of us were concerned with their ending of our beloved Whyborne and Griffin series. Today Jordan is bringing us back to ‘the neighborhood’ with another series, with another twist in the secrets of Widdershins and The Ladysmith.
We begin with Vesper Rune, traveling to Widdershins on a mission, to get hired at the Ladysmith. Sebastian Rath works at Ladysmith as well; this is where we begin the first book.
Jordan Hawk has given us two men who couldn’t be any more opposite, both with emotional baggage beyond belief and has cast their fate at that meeting. The story is exciting as layers are peeled away slowly, having these two young men learn more about themselves as they learn about each other.
Jordan’s words, descriptions and story line are definitely Hawk-esque and lend to the enjoyment. There is nothing I can say that would not be gushing….It is this 2020 Summer treat!

The best thing about a Jordan L. Hawk book is that there are no accidents. The narrative takes you through particular events that all lead to a surprising resolution. The side characters are just as critical. They are purposeful and pop in when you least expect them to and turn the story at the perfect moment.

Then there are those crazy words and phrases. If you Google these words you will inevitably find that they, too, have some definition that is part of the world you are reading and adds meaning you didn’t see at first. As if that wasn’t enough, Hawk weaves in historical moments that you think are part of his creation, but are actually phenomenal and fantastically weird moments in our actual past.

On this base, comes a new series based in the town of Widdershins. Vesper Rune and Sebastian Rath are about as opposite as you can get. Both have pasts that are still impacting their everyday life. The secrets they are protecting end up leading to their salvation.

This story had all the trademarks of a Hawk story. And yes, there were one or two surprises that kept me on the edge of my seat. Fans of the Whyborne and Griffin books will love the new adventure in their old neighborhood. New readers will be able to fall in love with Widdershins, as well as with a cast of characters that will draw you in to a paranormal adventure you won’t soon forget.
