Red Cape Society Agent Clemeny Louvel is used to dealing with werewolves but when she is reassigned to a special case about missing children, she learns that silver bullets don’t work on all creatures. 

This was another fascinating and action packed mystery for Clemeny. She is hunting a kidnapper who is stealing naughty children at night. I really enjoyed the mix of folklore, demonology, and steampunk in this story. It was just a weird mixture that actually worked very well. 

Clemeny was just as badass as in the previous cases but this time she has partnered up with her boss, Agent Edwin Hunter. I enjoyed their awkward flirting during their mission. So far this series has not had a relationship but all the flirting has been a wonderful break from the stress of the cases. I do wonder how their relationship will play out considering he is her superior. 

Overall, this was a fascinating holiday mission for Clemeny. I couldn’t put this story down and can’t wait to see what is going to happen next for Clemeny and the Red Cape Society.
