Review - Arcane Circle

Arcane Circle

Pages: 416


Persephone Alcmedi (or as her friend's call her, Seph) barely survived Fatal Circle when she took on the Fairies in a mortal battle and now she must deal with the aftermath. A few of her allies were killed during the battle. Her boyfriend/waerewolf, Johnny, was injured and the vampire's, Menessos, life hangs in the balance as she had to stake him to break the fairy bond. This is Seph's typical day as a witch, not counting her other responsibilities of taking care of her foster daughter, Beverly, her elderly grandmother, reading tarot cards, and writing a newspaper column.

 Before she can even relax, she gets world that the waere (waerewolf) leader is coming from Romania to visit Johnny, which can't be a good thing. To her surprise, Johnny announces that he is the warewolf Domn Lup, the king. Johnny has another problem as his magic has somehow been bonded to his tattoo. Seph of course wants to help Johnny reclaim his power, but there are those in the arcane world that want to stop them.

This series keeps getting better with every new installment. Unlike other paranormal heroines, Persephone Alcmedi is a likeable character as she seems she would fit into the real world, except for the whole witch thing. I've never cared much for Johnny in the other books, but his character becomes full center in this one, giving a little more depth to the character. I'm glad the author went a different route by not using Menessos as the main focus, but instead she focuses on the waerewolf mythology. Once again, Seph's paranormal adventure is fast-paced read that kept me turning the pages. If you like supernatural reads, I recommend Arcane Circle.

(Disclaimer - I received this book free of charge from the publisher in exchange of my honest review.)
