A fun story with lots of sniggers and a cherry on top!
I now know a lot more about Texas than I did before, not necessarily to its benefit of course, and oh Fire Ants! I suspect I have been a victim of these ants or their relatives in India when I once sat down in a woodland – certainly something nasty bit me several times on my behind! And it hurt…
This is ‘universe’ that I am not familiar with and it took a while to understand the creatures that inhabited it, and I must say that angels that are missing their heads sounds very creepy. Maybe the author was inspired by The Winged Victory of Samothrace a famous statue where the head has been lost, or the fables that say that good deeds result in angels being born – but without heads, wings, faces etc. Whichever, I found their idea disconcerting.
That above, I liked the story and it was long enough to satisfy me, – a lot of these fantasy novels I find are rather short, but this was a good length which meant that several of the characters could be developed as well as the two main protagonists.
This was book 5 in the series and so I went back to book 1 –
Playing with Fire: A Magical Romantic Comedy (with a body count)
by RJ Blain (Author)
each book deals with different characters in this universe.
