The HighFire Crown by J.T. Lawrence & M.J. Kraus

(From My Latest Reading List in August 2019)

About the book

It’s an offer she can’t refuse.

Jacquelyn Denna Knight, the best wizard detective in the city, is about to be evicted from her haunted apartment, and she just choked on the job that was going to pay her rent.  She hates that she let the money get away from her, but the satin-skirted vampire that escaped out the bordello window worries her more.

When a distraught—and obscenely wealthy—elf calls Jax at midnight to hire her for an intriguing job, she grabs the opportunity with both hands… But what Jax doesn’t know is that this case is going to unravel her life. She’ll get tangled up with a host of intriguing characters, most of whom are not who they appear to be.

As Jax speeds down a path toward the most powerful vampire clan in the country, she’ll have to put everything on the line.  Will she be able to use her unique brand of magic to save the Realm?

My thoughts

This book pleasantly surprised me. I don’t usually enjoy books written using South Africa as the venue, especially a fantasy novel, but I really enjoyed it. She wrote this book in such a way that you almost forget that it’s Johannesburg that’s mentioned. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and I love the fact that the protagonist is a female that knows how to kick ass. I would definitely like to read more of her work and I can see why she’s a best seller.

I gave this book a 4/5 star rating.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
