"Fast paced, action packed with twists and turns all the way"
Quincey Morris and his partner, white witch Libby Chastain,
don't realise that they are about to be brought together
again to hunt down evil. While Quincey is going about his
newest investigation he finds some jars with hearts inside
and his thoughts go back to a black magic problem he helped
solve not so long ago. With the FBI suddenly on his case he
is forced to look into this new set of murders where organs
are removed from the victims while they are still alive. A
new supernatural investigation has started.
In another city, Libby is at home relaxing when some men
manage to break her wards and try to kill her. She won't be
the last white witch to be attacked but she may be the only
one who survives. Quincey and Libby attempt to watch each
other's backs while finding the answers to the many
questions they are facing. Bad-ass Hannah follows them at a
distance making sure they get where they are going but who
is the mysterious woman? In a story that ranges from
Baghdad to Los Angeles, Evil Ways sees eccentric
billionaire Walter Grobius attempt to unleash a devastating
magical apocalypse. Which sees Libby and Qunicey drawn into
their deadliest case yet.
Black Magic Woman took my breath way earlier on this year
and I have been eagerly awaiting the sequel, Evil
Ways. Well I am an extremely lucky person and was sent
the gallery prints and what can I say? I LOVED it and it
was well worth the wait!
Libby has her name up in lights with Quincey in this sequel
and is now part of the series title. Both characters did
what they are good at in this second part and the reader
has a chance to learn just a little bit more about the
amazing duo. With a special cameo appearance, a pair of
shocking FBI agents and the shoot and ask questions later
Hannah tagging along, there was no lack of excitement in
Evil Ways. Fast paced, action packed with twists and
turns all the way, this was like being on a roller coaster
and I was way too gripped to fall off or let go.
There are only a few books that have struck me so far this
year and this is one of them. If you haven't already read
Black Magic Woman then go catch up because that new
paranormal writer on the block has earned a fixed place and
if they aren't shaking in their boots already, Jim Butcher,
M.R Sellars and other prominent male paranormal urban
fantasy writers should be! Justin Gustainis has started
something big and I am already enjoying the ride.
