This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m covering the newest entry in the Pax Arcana series. It’s Fearless by Elliott James!
Plot Synopsis: Someone, somewhere, has declared war on Kevin Kichida, and that someone has a long list of magical predators on their rolodex. The good news is that Kevin lives in a town where Ted Cahill is the new sheriff and old ally of John Charming.
Plot: The plot is pretty great, and it covers many more mythologies from around the world in this entry than in previous ones. Which is a great thing, and I particularly liked it. I’m a sucker for mythology and this series has proven to be awesome for that.
Characters: Kevin and Sarah are the two newcomers that I enjoy the most, but of the previous cast Molly is still my favorite. She might be slightly insane, but she’s a fun kind of crazy.
Overall: Excellent entry in a series chock full of mythology. A must read for Pax Arcana and Urban Fantasy fans.
For those who like: Urban Fantasy, Mythology, Action, Drama, Great Cast of Characters, Excellent Plot.
This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m covering the sequel to Charming! It’s Daring by Elliott James!
Plot Synopsis: Something is rotten in the state of Wisconsin. Werewolf packs are being united and absorbed into an army of super soldiers by a mysterious figure who speaks like an angel and fights like a demon.
Plot: The plot is really fast paced and intense and I enjoyed it quite a bit. That being said I do wish it had more of Choo and Molly from the previous book.
Characters: There are some new additions to the cast, my favorite being Matey (probably misspelling this, but that’s the downside to audiobooks). The rest of the new additions were great. Some of the previous cast returns like Sig, but Molly and Choo were mostly absent which was a pity.
Overall: A great sequel and excellent entry in this Urban Fantasy series chock full of myth and lore.
