Marshal Danni Metreaux is back with handsome Sebastien Poyager and this time they have to uncover several mysteries that intertwine with one another. Beginning with an incident at the Académie Superieur de Goin, Danni and Sebastien soon realize that something deeper is at play when more and more Weeia begins acting strangely.
As always, Danni is independent, snarky, strong-willed, and likable. I found her even more so in this book since she has finally settled into her life as a Weeia marshal in Paris. In the beginning, we see how much of a kind heart she has when she assists a family in need although it goes against regulations. Her independent attitude does change, as it would for many women, the more she becomes involved with her boyfriend, Iaen. Sebastien is a definite worthy friend to have…he’s smooth talking, handsome and loyal to his family and friends.
If you’re worried about reading the third book in the series, having not read the first two, don’t, because within the dialogue and narrative, all the things you need to know will be explained. However, I found several unnecessary repetitions about what Weeia marshals do, or who a character is…I’d skim over because I’d remember it from earlier in the same story.
My main problem with this book isn’t even the plot point…it was Danni’s relationship with Iaen. They meet in the second novel, Weeia on My Mind, and quickly fall for one another. As I read through the passages including Iaen, I found him too…perfect. It would have been nice to have a little bit of annoyance from Iaen. After all, several times, Danni has to bail on him when he’s planning something special. Sure, it’s her job, but, still. The mysterious Iaen we met in the second book is all smiles and understanding every single time Danni runs off.
Some of the dialogue, or even the narrative, can be a bit cheesy for my tastes and not really fit the characters I’ve come to know, but the story behind it is still an enjoyable read for any fantasy fan.
