Wicked Embers picks up where book #1 left off in true and fantastic Urban Fantasy form.
Emberly and her beau Jackson are investigating a unique and dangerous case for their shared private investigation firm and trying not to step on the toes of her cop ex, Sam, while keeping those they care about, including Emberly's life mate Rory, safe.
Emberly's dream visions kick into gear, making the case even more dangerous and intriguing, especially when they find out that everything behind the scenes is still tied to the Red Cloaks and their nefarious leader, the Grey Cloak.
As Emberly and Jackson chase down the mysterious beast wreaking havoc, their tie-in with the Red Cloak virus-afflicted becomes even more convoluted. Death and destruction await around every turn, and secrets that they wished they wouldn't have learned are revealed.
Wicked Embers was a beautifully written and gripping urban fantasy with lots of action, edge-of-your-seat suspense, thrills, and even some hot and sexy romance.
This was another stellar book by Ms. Arthur. I am loving this series almost as much as Dark Angels, and that is one of my absolute favorite UF series ever. I can't wait to see what happens next!
