This is the 3rd book in the 'Rowan Gant Investigations' and the series just gets better and better. Of course things aren't getting better for Mr Gant who is still recovering from the last two serial killers.

In this book Rowan isn't asked to help in an investigation but he is drawn to it. He has no idea why he has appeared at the crime scene but he knows something isn't right. Getting Detective Storm to believe him is hard work but things start falling into place. Unfortunately for Rowan he doesn't know just how close to home he will find the murderer.

A great read! This series is not only thrilling but magical. With a good storyline, nice characters and a twist of Wicca this series is a must read for anyone who likes the 'Dresden Files' by Jim Butcher or 'The Women of the Otherworld' by Kelley Armstrong.

Hi again

This is another one on my TBR (to be read) pile, which is now, I cringe to admit, taller than the height of my tallest friend - and he's 6'2!

I enjoyed the first two of these for the most part, but I did find Mr Sellar's writing style a little overblown (in that kind of 'never use one word where ten will do the same trick' kind of way), which constantly niggled at me and drew me out of the story.

On the positive side, it did get better between the first and second books (I'm wondering if he got a different editor), so I'm kinda hoping the third one continues that trend.

Also on the plus side, positively portrayed Pagan characters, w00t! Incidentally, if you enjoy fantasy with well-researched Wiccan characters, have you read SM Stirling's "Dies the Fire" set? I'd avoided them initially because they look, from the cover, as though they're grim, dreary post-Apocalyptic fare; but I found them more inspiring than depressing, and ended up enjoying them far more than I thought I would.
