I feel like my reviews for this series are getting repetitive, but what can I say? The books in this series are consistently good and always deliver on exactly what you’re expecting from them. The characters are always likeable, the plots are always good with a bit of action and detective work, the writing is always easy to read, and there’s always a bit of snarky humor and supernatural fun.
I especially liked the sweet things about the relationship this time though, *SPOILER ALERT FOR PREVIOUS BOOKS (although it’s not really a spoiler if you’ve read the blurb for this book)* like the times when Duncan would think yeah, maybe it sucked that he and Robbie couldn’t have sex and could hardly even kiss, but just having the person he loved there with him was enough. *END SPOILER ALERT* Those parts were touching. It was obvious how much they loved each other.
I had a couple issues though. For one thing, I felt misled (or rather that I was meant to be misled, since I guessed correctly anyway) in an unfair way by the author about certain things. I can understand misleading the reader for certain purposes, but the way it was done didn’t really make sense. I also felt this book was rather predictable. That being said, these things didn’t detract from the likeable characters, humor, etc. that I mentioned above, and the ending did manage to surprise me in a great way!
So overall, this was another great addition to the series that had more sweetness and touching-ness than the others and of course all the snarkiness and supernatural fun I’ve come to expect from Duncan and his crew!
Fans of Books 1-3 in Stephen Osborne's Duncan Andrews Thrillers series. M/M urban fantasy fans who want some quick, light reading with likeable characters, snarky humor, and paranormal fun.
