I really wanted to like this crime thriller. Serial killer, magic, female protagonist, it seemed to have the right elements but something didn’t feel right about this book.

I enjoyed the enigmatic Damian but just didn’t find Jessica Blackwood as likeable as I should have. The crimes themselves were ambitious to say the least but the characters largely disappointing and interchangeable. The ending just made way for another sequel, which I hope works better than this book.

Too many sequinned outfit descriptions not enough character and the middle dragged.
