Review--Wicked Circle by Linda Robertson


Well, it may be--when you're Persephone Alcmedi, Lustrata of the witches, and your lover is the Domn Lup of the werewolves. Dor 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 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 weres, 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.

Linda Robertson's latest, Wicked Circle, picks up where we left off with Seph and her many troubles! That poor girl has is tough and it only gets tougher. In the beginning she's dealing with a magical ceremony with her grandmother and mother, when things go awry nearly right away. And trouble is soon to follow when she is summoned back home to help Menessos out. Which is where the bulk of the story lies.

Menessos is being hunted by three vampire women who plan to get the truth out of him regarding his plans. But it is likely that he won't survive the matter for the sisters are vicious. Seph has to do what she can to prove Menessos innocence. But at the same time she promised Johnny she wold do the spell that allows the weres to keep their man-minds while in wolf form. She's just a busy girl!

I believe that this is the first time we get multiple points of view throughout the novel and it made for quite a busy read! Going from Persephone, Johnny, Menessos, and other characters kind of discombobulated me a bit! It made it hard to keep track of every little thing going on. And a lot does go on!! Especially with Johnny and his past and his present as the Domn Lup and quite possibly his future with Seph!

That being said, the book isn't without his romantic parts with Johnny and Seph, that happens early on, then other events occur that threaten their stable relationship. And yeah, I can't go on! But the action was seemingly non-stop! It was happening everywhere and there were so many new developments into the storyline that I was left breathless with all the shocks! I sooooo hope the next installment in the series is soon!

Overall rating 4/5 stars

  1. this series sounds so interesting! I have the first one in my TBR pile but haven't read it yet. So nice sometimes when there are so many action in a book. It must be difficult to wait for the next one.
