BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

This was a great novella, a little bridge between Lure of the Wicked #2 and All Things Wicked #3. I do recommend not skipping over this book. It is around 100 pages so it is a reasonable sized novella.

What did I like about this book? I liked Silas and Naomi . Silas’s heart is taken by Jessie, but Naomi is special to him too. You can tell they have that working, growing up history. He knows how to talk to her.

I love Jessie and Silas as a couple. Jessie has such a good heart. She just wants to help and she is pushing herself to the extreme, dangerous extreme.

I loved watching Naomi reluctantly accept the new power she possesses and being in a slightly uncomfortable place where she is healing and helping a witch , rather than being a killing machine. Not a natural reaction for her.

Naomi is at odds handling the man she loves and not really liking that she needs someone. She cares about Phin’s mum and she has these new emotions running through her that are foreign to her. Her hard exterior is being tampered with, by love.

I am watching Matilda’s home slowly filling up with new faces, the Church and the witches are slowly finding each other and I wouldn’t be surprised that Matilda see’s it all coming before it happens. She seems very relaxed about ex Missionaries landing in her secret hideaway and falling for witches or witch sympathisers. 

Naomi and Phin have a complicated relationship because Naomi is still coming to terms with all the change in her life. I enjoyed this novella as there was more to say. One book was not enough for Naomi and Phin, they still had more emotional rubble to sort through.

All in all it was a great read I enjoyed. I love reading about Silas, he is just gorgeous and has a good heart underneath all that muscle and man.

This is a really good series that I am totally invested in reading to the end. Somebody on facebook told me about a character that beats Silas, in her book. I was like , do tell. Well, that would be Simon. I am now reading 'All Things Wicked', and guess who is all smexi and manly and bats for the opposing team , who is a missionary...... Simon. Giddy up!

  2. Another awesome looking series I haven't heard of! I really love reading novellas in between two novels. But only if they're good and serve a purpose to bridge a gap between novels. Random fluff can be fun too, but always leaves me feeling like I'm reading something that's happening outside of the series and not in the middle of it.
