What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Magic and Mayhem
Both go together in my opinion because if you have one the other is always present. Ciar is the epitome of both and in some ways my furry arch-nemesis. He’s been with me since I was a child. Now he’s followed me to the Menagerie. Except he’s no longer in his canine form, Ciar is now 100% Fae male.
Which I’m not prepared for. Not that I’m prepared for this place at all either. I don’t want to be here. This school is a hen-house for the rich and powerful to reach in and pluck the special people out like fat hens while the rest are fed to the wolves.
Well, except this time there’s one of the big bad ones IN the hen-house. Ciar.
He’s the bane of my existence and theirs. Yet in a roundabout way he’s also my best friend, and even though he looks at me like I’m dinner–I’m not afraid.
I’m pretty sure I look at him exactly the same way.
Delightfully new, yet somewhat familiar, world
I love Zoe Parker. She has a way of making even the darkest of characters seem relatable – not that these characters are dark, but there are shadows aplenty. Unseelie. The Slaugh. Lord of the Hunt. And what ever Keri truly ends up being (she’s a fate caller, which is huge and rare, I just think there’s more surprises).
This is well written and smoothly done, injecting humor and dry wit through the chapters while teasing the reader with the truth of this world – truths we need to wait to fully comprehend till the next books are out.
First Person, Single POV
Episodic, not quite HFN, but resolves some issues while introducing others.
Medium Burn for Individual, Slow burn for Harem. R rated to X. MMMF
- Love Keri.
- Love Cari more.
- There is darkness here, and kindness.
- The brownies…. I want one.
- So many questions!
- Minor editing issues.
- A little confusing in places, had to run to catch up.
The First in a Multiple Mayhem series. Some call it Reverse Harem but I like to be the weird kid. (1% )
Apparently, I’m going to get the high school experience at twenty-five. (17%)
I adore Zoe Parker and this addition to her prolific library is no exception. I would recommend this book with no reservation or caution.
