So when it comes to this series I can only state that Jenn Stark is a natural in her story telling and I just love this series. It is funny, funky, witty and downright hilarious with a kicking story.
Sarah Wilde hunts artefacts for private collectors as well as the Arcane Council but is currently on a private gig to get the Mongolians crown that belonged to Ghengis Khan which offers prosperity and a long life there is a slight hitch though but money is money and she needs it to protect the Connecteds of the world against dark practioners and SANCTUS an unknown is also Techzilla.
Back in Vegas she has to be an oracle to Eshe, the high priestess on the council. Sarah is an unknown factor in the game. She has to deal with the council, Armaeus, the Magician, the devil and the fool. Sarah is given another gig from the council as the Rarity is in town where all magical artefacts are auctioned off and this time round there are some big players in town.
They are after some scrolls which are apparently the language of the Gods. There are traitors and the balance needs to tip and the council is getting involved. Not going to give too much away but Sarah needs to make some choices, stay in Vegas? Find out more about her past? What is the story behind the dragon? Will she develop her powers? She lets herself be used by the council but I guess it is mutual.
What I donât get is why Sarah is so caught up on Detective Brody Rooks when she doesnât really want him. I need more information on this one with those two. Ms. Stark creates a beautiful world with an interesting plot without being predictable making you want the next book.
