More of the same. This is basically the same thing as watching a BBC show with people that would be otherwise insufferable.

Upon a re-read, I'm kicking it down a star. (again, I'd like to half half-star capacity here! C'mon, Goodreads!)

These are fast reads, fun adventures that don't go terribly far into the psyche of the lead characters, for whom there aren't a lot of moral conflicts. These books deal much more in black & white than any shades of gray which is one of the things that keep them in the "fast and fairly light" category. The leads (Sinclair, McLeod, and Lovat) are capital "H" heroes, good guys to the

Slightly better than the first book in the series. Still want to shit in Sir Adam's boot.

Good: Actual female characters. (I was really disappointed that there were zero notable female characters in the first one, especially as it's written by two women.) The plot of this one didn't shatter my suspension of disbelief as much as the first one did. And it's always fun to read books set in Scotland while I'm actually living here and know exactly where they're talking about when they talk about the E

Having recently reread the first book in the Adept series, I immediately got the itch to reread the other books, so I pulled them out of the boxes they had migrated into (including the two hardcovers), and set them aside. I like reading in the bathtub, so if I am reading large books or ebooks, I used the second book in the series for the tub.

It's shortly after the machinations of the Lodge of the Lynx failed in their attempt to capture Michael Scott's spellbook, leaving his current incarnation,

Adam Sinclair, Master of the Hunt, is back in a second adventure. Picking up immediately after the 1st installment in the series (The Adept), our friends are put on notice of the deeds of the dark side (The Lodge of the Lynx -- a very powerful enemy who have something not very pleasant in store for the world) when out of nowhere, a part of Balmoral Castle is blown up. The good guys, led by Sinclair, must try to stop whatever evil plans they have and round up as many allies as possible.

Tales of hunting lodges were all the vogue in the UK occult community during the 1980s and here Kurtz and Harris spin a credible tale of Sir Adam and his friends.

Again, this is a novel I read some years ago and so have had to made an educated guess as to when. I enjoyed all of the series that I read and would certainly recommend it to those interested in the subject. Kurtz is well versed in the history of the esoteric in the UK during the period and so writes with authority.

This is the second in the series and I am enjoying it. The intrigue and human story is fun to read and very enjoyable. I don't know why but I find these types of books are interesting in that they are all about the good vs. evil and yet they will go ahead and describe what the man was wearing at the time!! (My own little aside.)

I really want to like these! But, I find reading this one was like trudging the trough mud. The authors go on for days about details that add nothing to the story, but make them sound up tight & "putting on airs." I have the 3rd one, but I don't know if I care about the final outcome. The authors haven't done anything to make me care about any of the characters!

Continuing my reread of the Adept series. This one deals with some of the fallout of the previous book and introduces us to Adam's love interest. I wish we saw more of Ximena throughout the series. Also continues Kurtz's fascination with Hitler and the occcult.

Good character development - especially Peregrine. A bit annoying with all the produce placement references .. always referring to the brand of the car. Not sure the ending held totally together but still a good read. As with the first - good enough to make we want to read the next in the series.

"The Lodge of the Lynx" - written by Katherine Kurtz and published in 1992 by Ace. As enjoyable as the first in the series, with a stronger religious focus.
