I would recommend this book to those that like:
Suspense & Thrillers
I feel an homage has been paid to me. You see, I love playing chess and in the book, there is a chess game that emulate's what is going on in the story. It's such a good scene that it leaves me with the desire to read the third book immediately, but alas...at this time it has yet to be written. I can only hope that when you read this review the third book is out. You'll want to see the chess game in it's entirety and without pause.
While this is a stand alone you will want the pleasure of meeting Sable & Hiro. They and the whole cast of characters are introduced in book 1 (An Evidence of Magic).
This book has M/M relations. As in sex between two men. If you no like...scroll on by...
On to the review...
This book is wonderful and the M/M relationship is only a great addition to the character growth. I felt we didn't get to see the real Tony (one of the main characters), as in--what's in his head, until half-way through. But I'm glad for it.
Even if you only like a good detective story, this is the series to read. It's phenomenal. Granted I dare say it's for the intelligent or for those who want a well thought-out, clever story. It's fun, but may require someone who likes a book beyond the mindless daddy billionaire type of read. And yet, the book allows my imagination to soar.
Sexy, meaningful and exciting. I'm glad they still make books like this and I'm glad I can't say they don't make book like this anymore. Inspiring.
Sold at the age of twelve to support his mother’s drug habit and rescued from a life on the streets by a cop, thirty-two-year old Tony Locke had had a brutal start in life. He’d risen to the position of homicide detective in the Everlight Police Department—a testament to his intelligence and driving ambition to help other victims of Everlight's prolific industry in sex and drugs. With his promotion to the hush-hush Interdimensional Task Force, he could broaden his reach—if he could just get along with his a-hole of a partner.
Leo Fortan labored under a soul-crushing burden of sacrifice, trapped in a lonely and rigid existence. Hand-picked from that existence and assigned to the Interdimensional Task Force, he thought his life had taken a turn for the better—until he met his partner, Tony Locke. Leo thought it probable they would kill each other.
For a man who thought love didn’t exist and a man who’d sacrificed everything for it, finding common ground may require more than an incident of magic.
