Why did I pick this up? I have been reading through this series and I really enjoy it. I enjoy the fact the characters change as the series chugs along.
What is the story? Morgan, a wizard who has persecuted Harry throughout the series, shows up at Harry’s’ house wounded and on the lam. He has been accused of murdering another important and being a traitor to the White Council. He protest his innocence to Harry and Harry being the investigator that he is, begins an investigation. He runs up against vampires, skinwalkers and other supernatural baddies while teaming up with fairies, vampires, wizards, werewolves and humans of all kinds. It is jam packed with all kinds of action, romance and humor.
Did I like it? Yes, it has all the elements that make this series fun. The combination of the supernatural with the worst and best of the human condition makes for a good read.
What is with the title of the review? To preserve the peace between wizards and other supernatural entities a sacrifice of someones integrity has to be sacrificed.
