It’s been a while since I read a nice action filled urban fantasy
Sarah Wilde is a psychic, specifically a tarot card reader. She’s also the best at finding and tracking down items for a price, and she isn’t cheap. When the Council hires her to get back a box from inside the Vatican, she is a little apprehensive. The last time that she was with the Magician, she can’t remember what happened, it’s just completely blank. However, when the girls that she’s been looking for are in peril, and this job offers her a way to save them, she has to accept. Little did she know that the Magician wasn’t completely honest with what she was stilling, and with what she was going to have to deal with.
This was a fun book that was suggested to me by a reading buddy. It’s a great urban fantasy that focuses on a strong, yet broken female lead. I seem to have noticed a theme in my reading choices. This book has humans living with magicians and psychics. The main character, though a seer, was very realistic and down to earth. However, the men in her life are apparently all the men in her life are model material, or that might just be how she sees them.
Her past comes back to haunt her in the worst way. We get to see her life before the life that she currently lives near the end of the book, and you start to feel bad for the character as well as in awe by how she’s overcome to her situation.
