Detective Fairuz Arshad is still recovering from events in the first book of this series. Her determination to help her former Special Crimes partner, Rowan, sends her on a path she might not be able to return from.
As with all the other books in this series, the cover is lovely. I am considering getting a color e-book reader so I can appreciate book covers like this a bit more. The story inside is also quite lovely. I am impressed with the author’s ability to create such graphic images with words. There is an extended fight scene that leaves me cringing and in a bit of awe.
Dealing with trauma and knowing who to trust are two important underlying themes of this book. Both themes give the reader more insight into the personalities and lives of the characters. The author does a good job of examining the long-term effects emotional and physical trauma can have on people’s lives.
This is a fast-paced mystery that edges toward psychological thriller territory. Just like the plot, the characters in this story are multifaceted, and I want to get to know even more about them. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an action packed urban fantasy with well-developed characters and elegantly crafted fight scenes.
