Now that Hawk has thoroughly established the rules of the Hexworld series, it was time to start breaking them. The events of this book took elements of familiars and witches to new levels, in intriguing ways that made for a mystery that acted as the perfect backdrop for the burgeoning relationship between Isaac and Bill.
We’ve known these characters since the first book in this series, and Hawk has slipped us hints that they belong together ever since their initial meeting. It was lovely to watch them find their way to each other after battling their internal demons, and then resolve to fight for each other, together.
Hawk has set up a bit of a trend with each book involving a new romance, which means that the cast of characters is starting to get a bit sprawling. I hope more stories continue in this universe because I’m enthralled with the background politics and overarching plot lines, and I’d happily read about adventures with the existing characters, even without new romances.
