Not much added on from the first episode, and the constant whining of his wife is starting to get on my nerves.

I would have liked to see more developments in the story or a bit more action.

Fallon the village Sergeant and Cavan the Crown Prince continue to investigate the mysterious disappearances that have been plaguing Gaelland.

Fallon is convinced that the culprits are men. Cavan suspects his brother. The King and the Archbishop of Aroaril seem to be convinced that it's the work of evil witches who sacrifice to the dark god Zorva. Or possibly malevolent selkies out of folklore are to blame.

Oooh I am liking where this book seems to be heading! This book is setting up the plot even more, which is thickening by each page turned. The characters are really coming in to their own now and youare getting more of a personal feel from them. I am really looking forward to starting the next part to see where the author takes us. I am really enjoying the style of writing too and finding the punchy chapters a delight. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
