Assassination contracts don’t make good wedding proposals.
Sharing a beer with Death—one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse—really put a few things into perspective for this foul-mouthed, billionaire wizard. Like finally getting the stones to propose to his girlfriend.
But the Brothers Grimm—legendary supernatural assassins—have escaped their prison, and the number one thing they want after their centuries-long incarceration is Nate Temple’s head. With the entire wedding party also on their hit-list and the Temple family fortune in jeopardy, Nate realizes they can’t run and they can’t hide. So, time to do magic and stuff…
But with every flavor of supernatural thug teaming up to help the Grimms, Nate learns that friends have become enemies and enemies have become friends, and he’s forced to cross lines that are better left uncrossed. To use some magic that he really, really shouldn’t use.
When magic, claws, and teeth dance to the song of war, the only thing left to learn is who lives and who dies. And if Nate can live with the consequences.
No wonder a guy is terrified to propose…
Uncaged Review: We are taken on a wild ride, almost right out of the gate with the third book in this series, and you never get a chance to catch your breath. Nate has a hit out on him, and it’s the Grimm’s that are after him, whom are much stronger than he is. Since he doesn’t have control over his powers yet, he’s a sitting duck, but his friends, and a couple new allies, are targeted too.
This book doesn’t let its foot off the gas pedal much, it’s a fully action packed book that keeps the reader tense and on high alert the whole time. Several characters from past books make an appearance, and I finally like Indie. For the most part in this series, I’ve thought she was just a filler character, but in this book, she finally comes into her own and earned my respect. My biggest gripe is that Nate was clueless most of the book. Being a Maker, he has no idea how to use his new-found powers and it does wear you down.
All said, this is a great addition to the series, and I like how Mr. Silvers is bringing in so much of the traditional folk tales and interweaving them into the story, along with witty dialog. A must for urban fantasy lovers. Reviewed by Cyrene
