How I enjoy and love her books and wish I had just ...
June 29, 2018
Another new series by Gina LaManna. How I enjoy and love her books and wish I had just a little bit of her enormous imagination.
We visited 'Wicked' in the last novel of The Isle-series. Wicked is one of the boroughs of New York, but an invisible one like the Isle and inhabited by all sort of magic creatures.
Danielle (Dani) is a Reserve, which means she can see the residue of magic, and she has been a Detective on the police force until something made her retire. We find out what later in the story. She has just opened a pizza restaurant when her (police officer)-brother Nash arrives with Captain Matthew King. He is her ex-boyfriend, a vampire and in need of her help with a murder scene.
The story is told in changing POV's, which I liked as we get to know the thoughts of Matthew as well. Not in the first POV like Dani's, however. But it is clear the vampire is deeply in love with Dani and had his reasons to break off their relationship. As Dani is also still in love with him, I hope we will see those two get together (soon I hope.... my romantic heart needs it).
A small but important role for the 'Hex Files' of the title. Dani requests to see those files in exchange for her help. I am very curious about those files!!
The writing is very pleasant and original, as always. I can't recommend this author enough. I always know I will have a good read when I open one of her books. I love this new series and can't wait for the next, fortunately in just a couple of weeks!
