After a black witch pitched a hissy fit in Hollis Apothecary, Rue got stuck cleaning up his mess. That was the easy part. Repairing the damage he inflicted on Camber and Arden? That makes Rue wish she could bring him back to life just to kill him again. Slower this time.

While Rue is setting her new life back to rights, Clay and Asa are off working a case, but it soon becomes clear that they’ll need her help to catch the vicious creature preying on locals in a small Tennessee town. She’s got her hands full at home, but Rue has no choice. She must report for duty to honor her agreement with the director. Or else.

What she discovers leads her deeper down the rabbit hole of Black Hat Bureau corruption and promises that, no matter how grim the past few weeks have been, the worst is yet to come.

Rue and her two employees, Camber and Arden, have been spending time cleaning up and rebuilding Hollis Apothecary after a black witch destroyed the store. Rue is worried about the mental health of her employees as she feels she’s to blame for bringing this upon them, but both girls are insistent they are fine, and Rue is doing all she can to makes sure they are.

Clay and Asa have been working a case that soon draws her in to help catch the creature killing people in a small Tennessee town. She has so much going on at home that she really doesn’t want to go but has to honor the agreement she made with the Black Hat Bureau for her and Colby’s safety.

The more time that Rue and Asa spend together, the weirder it gets. Slowly, Rue is finding out all the rules involved with Asa and his daemon half, but instead of sending her running, it brings them closer together. It’s almost like they’re fated to be together. Clay and Colby start developing a bond that makes you smile each time one of them helps the other.

I really like this new series Edwards is writing. It’s fun, passionate, and has lots of monsters to learn more about.

About the Author:
Hailey Edwards writes about questionable applications of otherwise perfectly good magic, the transformative power of love, the family you choose for yourself, and blowing stuff up. Not necessarily all at once. That could get messy. She lives in Alabama with her husband, their daughter, and a herd of dachshunds.
