Review: Arcane Circle by Linda Robertson

Title: Arcane Circle
Author: Linda Robertson
Series: Persephone Alcmedi
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: December 28, 2010

I received this book from Simon & Schuster, in exchange for an honest review.

Summary:   Even magic can’t solve everything. . . .

After facing down the forces of Fairy in mortal combat, Persephone Alcmedi still must deal with the aftermath. Not only does Seph now possess deadly secrets she must hide from the arcane and mundane world alike, but the dozens of magical creatures who’ve taken up residence behind her cornfield need food and shelter, and there’s still her foster daughter Beverly’s tenth birthday party to plan.

And that’s not all. . . . Seph’s boyfriend Johnny has revealed himself as the wærewolf Domn Lup, and the ruler of the wære world is en route from Romania to make sure Johnny really is the “king” he claims to be. But Johnny’s hiding a dangerous secret: his magic is locked in his mysterious tattoos. He and Seph must find a way for him to reclaim it—fast—despite those who have no intention of letting Johnny gain his full powers. Seph knows that, in the arcane world, strength is always a necessity and power must be constantly proven, but how far is she willing to go to succeed . . . and at what cost?

Thoughts: Persephone is dealing with the aftermath from the battle with the Fairies. She's dealing with her injured boyfriend Johnny, a party to plan and to top it off a bunch of magical creatures are camped out in her backyard.  Talk about some crazy stress, when will they girl get a break.

I enjoyed this story. The cover art really popped. I loved the greens and blues.  In the last book Persephone was dealing with the fairies and now she is dealing with the aftermath of the battle. To say poor Persephone has her hands full is an understatement. Arcane Circle was good story, an excellent addition. Action packed story, I definitely enjoyed this one more, compared to the last book. I think Urban Fantasy fans will eat this one up!

Score: 4 Stars
