*I received an ecopy of this book from the author. This has not influenced my review.*
This one was my favorite in the series so far!
This series is action-packed, plot-driven, and fairly fast-paced, which makes for a great read when you want something gripping that you can get lost in. And I felt like the plot and pacing were better this time in that it wasn’t fight scene after fight scene, like the last one seemed to be, although the fight scenes that were there seemed even more intense and violent. Plus there was a bunch of different stuff going on, so I was never really sure where the story might go next.
I loved the addition of a new character, Rian, an old friend of Vince’s, and the funny-yet-biting banter between them. It even allowed us to learn a bit more about Vince and his past.
I especially enjoyed getting to learn about more types of fae and other creatures this time. I always love getting to see new takes on supernaturals and what sorts of abilities they have. Like the gancanagh, which I had never even heard of but are apparently the faerie version of incubi. There were also vampires, zombies, and necromancers in this book, so we got to learn a bit about those too. We even got to see more of Vince’s powers and learn how they work, what the different glamours do, and what some of the differences between fae and humans are. It seems like the author put a lot of thought into the creatures that inhabit this world.
Overall, this was another quick, gripping, very readable book that I enjoyed!

“The post-apocalypse was truly a wondrous era.”
A month after the explosive end of his mission to the Divide, Vincent Whelan is spinning his wheels. He’s struggling to rebuild his business, frustrated at his position as Tom Tildrum’s “minion,” and uneasy about the dangers the near future will bring.
So when a local spots a zombie prowling around one of Kinsale’s biggest factories, Vince takes extra precautions before he goes hunting for a necromancer in the dregs of his beleaguered city.
Unfortunately for Vince, a straightforward case quickly morphs into a balancing act, when a familiar face pops in to drop a dangerous new quest on his head: Abarta has stolen a powerful tool from Manannán mac Lir, and to get it back, Vince will have to venture into the Otherworld yet again.
With his allies split on two fronts, and threats rising on both sides, Vince finds himself facing the most perilous trial of his entire life: the battle to preserve his own humanity.
What Gods Incite is the third novel of The Frost Arcana, an action-packed urban fantasy series set in a post-apocalyptic world.
