Review: Wicked Circle by Linda Robertson
Persephone Alcmedi #5
Publication date: 27th Dec 2011
My rating: 4.5 out of 5
I read the first 4 books in this series in January of last year one after the other, they were that good. I liked the gritty witch/vamp/waere combination so I've had Wicked Circle on my "I must buy the minute it comes out" list for a whole year.
It took me a while to get back into the storyline again, I got a bit confused about the minor characters however, by about a third of the way through I was back in business again and wrapped up in Seph's world.
What really stood out for me in this instalment was the internal power struggle waere Johnny was going through. With Johnny's power being unlocked and as he stars to take up his rightful position of Domn Lup, or head waere guy, his wolfyness has become much more dominant and he has to battle hard to reign his wolf in. Inevitably his scary mean side frightens the life out of Seph and puts their relationship in real jeopardy. And Menessos? I still don't quite trust him. He always seems a couple of steps ahead and I could see Seph's feeling towards him change and I didn't like it. I'm still firmly on team Johnny.
The ending of Wicked Circle had me immediately wanting more, I love this kind of gritty urban fantasy.
