Sometimes being semi-immortal just isn’t enough.
Let me introduce you to Jack Bridge a semi immortal wizard, who has be banned to the mortal realm by a vengeful head wizard . For of all things sleeping with his wife. Being in the mortal realm and being around people is really starting to wear on his nerves. He is ready to pack it all in when Kate walks in , she wants to hire him to help find her sister . She lights a fire under Jack as he is the only one that can solve . As she gets under his skin and they fight the powers of evil. Will they survive the evil and will they survive the feeling that are stirring between them.
This is the first book of Adam's I have read . I couldn't put the book down the characters were complex and they seem to come alive with in the pages . Jack is such a complex guy. He has done some things in his past that got him sent up to earth and all he wants to do is get back . He will do just about anything to get back to his realm. You see him struggling to be around people and as he fights the evil you see him come into his own and grow as he saves the day with Kate's help. At first Kate comes of as a naïve scared little rabbit . She seems to be either in shock or denial. But as the book goes on she becomes such a great asset to Jack and she finds out she is tougher then she thought. They actually make a great team, they complement each other and they can kick ass together really well . The supporting cast of characters are your mix of demons and vampires ,voodoo practitioners. You have your bad guys and your good guys , then there are the ones that well you just don't know about . They all add up to a great story .
The author takes us on a roller coaster ride, full of suspense and there is a bit of romantic tension thrown in for good measure. The characters are complex and you can't help fall in love with them .
This is a book that you can curl up and loose yourself in. You will want to yell at your kindle a few times and tell them to watch out . This is the first book I have read by this author and I will be looking into more books. If you want to read a good complex book that will keep you reading into the night, check out SOUL OF DUST
