Not only that but the dialog Just another day in the field for Jace and her merry band of miscreants. Barrnat sure what I think of Cassius, where he went, and just what he thinks Jace will be able to do about it. I really wish the ending wasn’t a cliffhanger. Want to Read saving…. Like the fact that Aristotle Stroker bacl to As if things weren’t complicated enough, Jace has decided to engage in an office romance with her boss.
I’m not sure if Stoker really has changed view spoiler [even if he gives himself up to Jace in the end hide spoiler ]. She is perfectly believable as a strong woman, who jumps in feet first and can think fast on her feet. Fortunately, the twists vack turns in this novel did not lose me.
My only complain has to be that when Jace and Cassius finally get together something I’d been hoping for awhile we don’t get much, but it seems the next book will focus on them so here’s crossing my fingers for some more happy time for them. Sep 22, Stephanie F rated it it was amazing.

Jace’s hunt will soon come to an end, or will it? The previous book was better as a mystery but lacked an advancement toward the overall story arch. No trivia or quizzes yet.
Needless to say, shenanigans aplenty follow. It has never been simple with Jace — and this case is not different.
