[Review] - Wicked Circle by Linda Robertson

Title: Wicked Circle
Author: Linda Robertson
Series: Persephone Alcmedi
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: December 27, 2011

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

Summary:  Is a little time alone with the man you love too much to ask?

Well, it may be—when you’re Persephone Alcmedi, Lustrata of the witches, and your lover is Domn Lup of the wærewolves. For once, however, the disturbance is not Seph’s foster daughter, Beverly, her wacky grandmother, or her newly rediscovered mother. This time, it’s the ancient and incredibly sexy vampire Menessos, bearing bad news: because the vampire council fears he is plotting a power grab, Menessos is being hunted by a trio of truth-seeking vampire sisters so dangerous they are usually kept locked in stone.

His dreams imperiled, Menessos needs Seph more than ever . . . and she needs him. Now, Seph has magical promises to fulfill for the wæres, multiple mundane family challenges to meet, vampire politics to confront . . . and into the bargain she’s balancing two sexy supernatural males. It’s enough to drive any woman insane, especially when you throw in a dragon and—even worse—a government investigator. As danger threatens, Seph isn’t sure she can stay alive for the rest of the day . . . let alone long enough to accomplish all that needs to be done.

Thoughts: The great multi-tasker... Persephone Alcmedi. She is use to dealing with all sorts of issues, usually at the same time. But this time around, it is vampire Menessos, bringing bad news that he is being hunted down and the vampire council is behind it and he needs her help.

Good Read!  The triangle/bond between Persephone, Johnny and Menessos is quite delicious.  I like both Johnny and Menessos, but loved seeing more of Seph and Menessos. Can't wait to read the next book to see where things are going go.  The different POVs in this installment were a nice change. Wicked Circle is full of magic and action. Persephone is a fantastic heroine. She is constantly in danger, but manages one way or another to hold her own.  This wasn't my favorite in the series, but still an enjoyable read and worth checking out.

Score: 3 Stars
