The Enchanter's Flame
by Michele Notaro
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
This my first time reading this author and man was I impressed! Michele Notaro has built an amazing, magical, believable world. Her words suck you in, her characters make you want to know more, the story itself was truly captivating. I really really enjoyed this book and I am thoroughly hooked on this series!
In the country of Brinnswick a detective stumbles across a series of murders that scream of the occult, and a past trauma he would rather forget. Detective Sebastian Fitz has a series of murdered girls, drained of blood, left with strange markings on their bodies. And he has no leads. So his police chief calls in a specialist.
Enter Ailin Ellwood, the specialist. At first glance he appears to be a bad boy goth wannabe who's really good at pissing people off. But he is, in fact, a witch; and a damned powerful one at that. He also happens to be the chief's brother-in-law. And annoyingly sexy, and surprisingly nice under all his snark.
Their investigation draws the men closer together until Ailin claims Sebastian as his, but it also reveals that there is something rotten in the heart of Brinnswick; a demon has been killing these women to open up a portal to hell and he may not have been doing it alone, because someone has kept Ailin from noticing.
In the final confrontation secrets are revealed, and a chain of events has been put into motion that have both Ailin and Sebastian at the heart of it all. This is just the opening gambit of a war they're being forced to fight.
PS I read book 2 right after I finished book one and now I can't freaking wait for 3!!! View all my reviews
