The third book in the series was still a fun and at sometimes hair raising adventure. Corine is still the object of Montoya's wrath and the opening scene sets the tone for the rest of the book as Kel walks into the shop just as Corine is about to touch a figurine that had been left for her and tells her not to touch the figurine because it has a death hex on it. From there the book doesn't stop moving with Corine in some ways growing up and learning the new powers that have been unlocked by her mothers locket and finding out more of who her father was, and who she is descended from. But in some ways she is just an adolescent, more so than Shannon who is *supposed* to be a teenager and that is where the book loses it for me. Her romantic problems are getting a bit tiresome and overplayed, it's not enough that she has both Jesse and Chance eating out of her hand, but now there's someone else? The romance angle is beginning to overreach the plot of the novels. Still, I really enjoyed the book overall despite one major glaring discontinuity that even putting reality aside, because this is an urban fantasy after all, and I'm hoping the next one will put that to rights.
