When Gabriel’s witch girlfriend doesn’t return from her latest trip, he gets on the road and heads out to find her. Sheila’s coven is secretive and distrustful of Gabriel, so the only help he has is Sheila’s familiar, a bulldog named Orson, who is psychically linked to both of them.
In Florida, they walk right into an elaborate plan to steal Orson. A mysterious wizard named Yareth is behind the plot, and he may also know where Sheila is.
Gabriel and Orson will have to fight for their lives as they navigate around all the magical roadblocks to force Yareth’s hand. They won’t give up until Sheila is safe.
I really wasn’t sure what to expect staring this book but it was not that. I really enjoyed this book, the story and the characters. All of them, even the four legged ones.
It was a unique, funny and suspenseful story to follow.
I liked the characters, each of them different and yet they all fit together on the page nicely. They also very realistic and often have the feeling you are right there with them. Of course my favorite was Orson, the “talking” talk. Okay he was not really talking but rather communicating with both Gabe and Shelia telepathically since he is linked to both of them. Even though he is only Sheila’s familiar. He often is witty and funny and sure has a flare for the dramatic.
I also liked Gabriel and Sheila, as well all other characters in the book.
Overall, it was a great book that sucked me into their world within the first few pages. It had everything I like in books, humor, suspense, action and some light romance.
There were a few things that seemed little rushed or some things seemed a bit forced humor but nothing major to take away the joy from the book.
Great book and hope to see more from this author. I rate it 4★
