Life just keeps getting more complicated for Journeyman Mage Alys Kinnear.
Arrested for the destruction of her home town, Alys is soon tasked with one of her most dangerous cases to date. A series of grisly slayings in London, all with mysterious ties to Alys and her familiars, causes Scotland Yard Detective Inspector Ben Donovan to enlist the aid of the Yard's prime suspect...Alys herself! But does the good detective have an ulterior motive for wanting to work so closely with her?
I Loved It - Part 2
I often start reading an author's second work in a series with hesitancy, as most sequels tend to dissapoint. Not so with Thicker than Blood: The Kinnear Chronicles, Book 2. Picking up where he left off in Book 1 - Family Ties, Joshua as gone from a great read to an even greater read! Once again he provides us with an easily acceptable alternative world filled with characters that we can instantly relate to. At the same time, Joshua provides us with the framework for his world, in detail that we can easy understand. It would be wonderful if someone with influence picked up Joshua's books and made them into a movie. I hope I don't have to wait too long for Book 3!
