Review: Shadow Burns
Shadow Burns by S.M. Reine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book picks up where the others left off - going around solving paranormal crimes with Cesar and Suzy (and Isobel). Things are really beginning to fall into place with this one.
Cesar is still... Cesar. I'm not really his biggest fan and that may have led to my slow read of this installment. The overall story begins as a simple haunting report but grows into so much more. Really, the big payoff is in details about Isobel. We learn *a lot* about her in this story and will probably get all the answers in the next one. It's a little hard to summarize the story, because of the twisty-turny way it gets from start to finish, but that's about what I expect from the Preternatural Affairs books. Cesar stumbles his way through all of the paranormal elements, usually getting bailed out by Suzy (or Isobel, or Fritz, or all three...).
Fritz is another character that we got to see even more of in this book. It is exciting to have all these clues dangled in front of you and get some solid payoff at the very end. Well done! You've sucked me in for even more mystery and mayhem from the world of Cesar Hawke.
