New Rule: Never owe a vampire a favor…
Nearly a year after defeating her evil ex, sorceress Jade Crow has found some peace running her comic book store and gaming with her friends. Until the vampire who helped her win against Samir comes knocking and wants the favor repaid.
The Archivist’s request looks simple on its surface. Go into an empty house and check for magic items.
There’s just a tiny problem: simple is not Jade’s forte. There are lies around every turn and soon she’s neck deep in undead.
Not all quests are what they seem and laid to rest doesn’t mean the dead stay buried…
I’m not sure why this book was necessary. I kind of wish Bellet had just moved on from the main characters because I feel like this didn’t really bring much to the table. It was more of Jade kicking magical butt, but there was no character growth and it felt weird after the big fight from the previous book. It was almost like a big epilogue with a random bad guy in it.
Also, Alec’s mysterious bad guys that show up were really random and didn’t really have any kind of bearing on the overall story.
Overall, I was disappointed.
