Clemeny’s new case takes her to the country to break a curse on the Cabell family. When not hunting the creature, Clemeny has to deal with high society and Agent Hunter’s family friends. 

This was a fascinating adventure for Clemeny because it shows us that it isn’t only the city that has monster problems. I really enjoyed seeing more of this world and how adaptable Clemeny, and Agent Harper, were to dealing with other creatures. The action isn’t as heavy in this one but I still enjoyed seeing Clemeny deal with monsters.

Clemeny’s relationship with Agent Hunter changes in this one. She sees how he acts when he is in his Sir Edwin Hunter role and it wasn’t very accepting or pleasant for her. While I did like Agent Hunter, his actions in this book were a huge red flag and made me not like him very much. 

Overall, this was another wonderful adventure for Clemeny. I do hope we get to see more of Agent Harper in the next one because I think she is a great partner for Clemeny. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen in the next book now that Lionheart is back.
