What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Have you ever had a feeling like something bad was going to happen?
What about a gut reaction to someone you had never met? You know what I’m talking about. The times where something just doesn’t feel right, so you turn and walk the other way only to find out someone got robbed down the same alley you decided not to turn down.
I get that feeling a lot. I thought it was normal. I didn’t know it was a warning. I didn’t know it was there to keep me alive.
There’s a lot of things I didn’t know, but what I now know…it’s got me scared senseless.
Turns out, the Gods are real.
Destiny is real.
Fate is something that we can’t always control.
And me? I’m just a human caught up in a game of the Gods. Except—I’m not. Not really. I’m someone else entirely, according to the three genies who have sworn to protect me.
From what? Well to explain that, we’re going to have to go way back to Ancient Egypt. A land of monsters and Gods and wars.
Where do I fit in? Smack bang in the middle, by the looks of it.
**This is an urban fantasy romance where our leading lady ends up with three love interests and an HEA. Watch out for the strong language, she’s a Brit and it is written in British English.
Thoughts on Trickster’s Hunt
Decent, if a bit jumbled in places. I loved the British snark and terminology, and Adam is seriously a best friend I want to find. Plus, a competitive eater as the FMC? Oh yes, hell yes. Mind you, she’s only 115lbs, but still, girl likes herself some food.
Went for a 3.5 instead of higher as the narrative doesn’t flow as smoothly as the plot should allow, snagging in paragraphs or flattening scenes that should be robust. The emotions are there, but the meanings are scant. Plus, Amos doesn’t stand out just yet – dissolving into the wallpaper. Perhaps book 2?
First Person, Multiple POV
Character Age Range
Decent, though not perfect, story that sharpens the palate on Genie Lore. Free on KU.
