Kai Gracen has no intention of being anyone’s pawn. A pity Fate and SoCalGov have a different opinion on the matter.
Licensed Stalkers make their living hunting down monsters and dangerous criminals… and their lives are usually brief, brutal, and thankless. Despite being elfin and cursed with a nearly immortal lifespan, Kai didn’t expect to be any different. Then Ryder, the High Lord of the Southern Rise Court, arrived in San Diego, Kai’s not-so-mundane life went from mild mayhem to full-throttle chaos.
Now an official liaison between the growing Sidhe Court and the human populace, Kai is at Ryder’s beck and call for anything a High Lord might need a Stalker to do. Unfortunately for Kai, this means chasing down a flimsy rumor about an ancient lost Court somewhere in the Nevada desert—a court with powerful magics that might save Ryder—and Kai’s—people from becoming a bloody memory in their Merged world’s violent history.
The race for the elfin people’s salvation opens unwelcome windows into Kai’s murky past, and it could also slam the door on any future he might have with his own kind and Ryder.
I had the pleasure of reviewing Mad Lizard Mambo when it first came out in September. You can find the review HERE. I don’t have much to add on the story end of things this time around.
Listening to it on audio brought a whole new dimension to the book and I loved it even more. I now need to get Black Dog Blues on audio and listen to both books again.
I wanted to add that I loved the whole cast of characters, from Dempsey to Malone they all felt real. I loved the turn things are taking and look forward to more in the series. I loved this book.
This is my second book narrated by Greg Tremblay and I loved it. Though I wasn’t sure of his interpretation of a sidhe accent, it grew on me and it helped to cement Ryder as other than human. I loved Kai’s voice as well as Greg’s performance of the other characters. I highly recommend this book in Audio!!!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
