Note: This novella takes place at the same time as events in Fallow (Whyborne & Griffin 8).
Shy secretary Maggie Parkhurst knows there’s nothing special about her. She’s neither sorceress, nor fighter, nor scholar. What could she possibly have to offer Persephone, the chieftess of the inhuman ketoi—and the woman Maggie’s fallen in love with?
After Maggie’s friend Irene goes missing under mysterious circumstances, she has no choice but to turn to Persephone for help. When the trail leads to a shadowy acting troupe, they discover a plot that stretches much farther than a single vanished woman.
I have been a fan of the Whyborne & Griffin series since I first started reading it, and I have loved Maggie for just as long! So when I found out this book was released, and it was her story, I couldn’t wait to get started on it.
One thing that I really enjoyed about this story is Persephone – watching as she was trying to court Maggie int he ways of the ketoi, yet it was totally completely different from the “human” way. That was my favorite part of the story.
Even though this is a short read, it still packed the punch from the series that I have come to love. There was action, suspense and everything in between that worked great with the story.
I would say that if you haven’t read the rest of the series, then you may not fully understand what is all happening in this book. But it would peak your interest in the series itself if you were to read this.
Overall – a great read!
