Arcane Circle (Persephone Alcmedi #4) by Linda Robertson
What is it about:
After facing down the forces of Fairy in mortal combat, Persephone Alcmedi still must deal with the aftermath. Not only does Seph now possess deadly secrets she must hide from the arcane and mundane world alike, but the dozens of magical creatures who’ve taken up residence behind her cornfield need food and shelter, and there’s still her foster daughter Beverly’s tenth birthday party to plan.
And that’s not all. . . . Seph’s boyfriend Johnny has revealed himself as the wærewolf Domn Lup, and the ruler of the wære world is en route from Romania to make sure Johnny really is the “king” he claims to be. But Johnny’s hiding a dangerous secret: his magic is locked in his mysterious tattoos. He and Seph must find a way for him to reclaim it—fast—despite those who have no intention of letting Johnny gain his full powers. Seph knows that, in the arcane world, strength is always a necessity and power must be constantly proven, but how far is she willing to go to succeed . . . and at what cost?
What did I think of it:
I both loved and disliked this book. I loved it for the awesome, suspenseful story, the setting, the characters and all the other things I also loved in the previous books in this series. Robertson manages to make you feel for her characters even those with only a very small part and she knows how to introduce storyhooks for future books that make you curious about what will happen next without getting you frustrated. I disliked it because it also contained one of my personal pet peeves about the subject family and this ruined my enjoyment of the story. I'm hoping the next book will steer clear of my pet peeves as this is an amazing series otherwise.
Why should you read it:
It's got great writing and an exciting, cool story
