A murderer haunts the city, turning the unwary to stone. Between hunting this evil and corralling new arrivals, Flax struggles to guard both his life and his heart.
Quinn and Valerian have come through the trials of facing an undead lich queen and the perils of falling in love. Now they work to restore AURA to its previous strength and efficiency while navigating their new life with each other. Fortunately, they’re not in this alone.
Kai Hiltas has taken over as the head of the research department at AURA and has become everyone’s favourite workaholic, everyone except his lover Tenzin, who has had enough of his late nights and broken promises. As Kai tries to salvage his relationship, he finds a teacher for Quinn, who also happens to be one of Valerian’s new officers, Flax Wolfheart, a sexy elf with trouble written all over him.
Flax has motives beyond simply teaching Quinn to control his magic. He’s trying to recover from his own losses and failures, but he has a plan. The two newest elvish crossovers, Ash and Sage, are sizzling hot and might even like him. With them as backup as he tracks a deadly stone mage and figures out how to teach Quinn, Flax sees his chance to impress Val and snag a place by his captain’s side. On the hunt for both danger and redemption, Flax’s pursuit leads him ultimately down trails he never expected.
Flax’s Pursuit is book 2 in the AURA series and picks up shortly after book one ends. While the title leads you to believe this is Flax’s story, a new character in the series, it really revolves around Quinn and Val, as well as Kai and the mysterious Tenzin, just as much.
I loved how the mystery of the culprit unfolded, and there were great action scenes fraught with danger and magic, but the real focus were the relationships between all the main characters.
I loved seeing Quinn and Val again and seeing them cement their devotion. Flax was an interesting character, though I didn’t like him much at first, he did grow on me. Ash and Sage offered a unique insight to new arrivals to this world and I liked their interactions with the previous three. Kai and Tenzin’s story was more in the background but no less heart wrenching. All had depth and individuality that created a great story.
I love this world that the authors have created and I hope for more tales set in it, whether we revisit old friends or meet new ones.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
