Subtract a few factors and add some new ones (priests, Shanghai, Toronto, and an ice building), and you have the second Hunter Kiss novel. Except my brain totally stopped absorbing the book’s contents with a third of the way to go, though I read until the end.
This series should work, but it can’t hold my focus properly. I can only suspend disbelief so far, and these books ask too much of my brain, and aren’t realistic enough. I prefer my UF to be more urban than fantasy, and it’s so difficult to get the balance right, but unfortunately the levels here aren’t to my liking.
I may try to acquire the upcoming third novel, but no big loss if I can’t get it.
