I enjoyed this book and the challenge in trying to figure out who were the “good” guys vs. the “bad” guys. Lots of twists and turns made this an interesting read
Ashes and bone
Just completed the trilogy and obviously, (since I read all three), this is a indicator that there is all one looks for in a good mystery. Filled with tension, red-herrings, good leads to unravel, and a satisfying finale. I'm moving on to the author's other books knowing I won't be disappointed.
I just finished the last book in this series and overall I was very pleased. The mysteries were great, the romances were just enough and the characters believable and likable. There were some minor things I didn't care for, but still I would recommend the books.
