Redclaw Origins, Book One
Five of five stars given
“Marriage is a contract one enters with good intentions. It helps if you like the other person involved, though.” So said Em, during her lunch with Rhett; a lunch that would prove to be the catalyst for a drastic change in the trajectory of Rhett’s life.
It’s clear once Rhett arrives in the Redclaw offices that something is off. Hired despite the fact that she’d shown up for her interview at the wrong place, a place that had no intention of hiring anyone; Rhett wastes no time in learning that Redclaw is not at all what it seems. Hurtling into her first “assignment” with the agency, Rhett soon learns just what it is about Redclaw that’s different.
Dean’s story is compelling and masterful. With characters that are not only interesting but captivating, she ensures that you’re invested in their stories. And are hooked until the very last page. It’s a bumpy ride for sure, full of twists; but it’s a ride you won’t want to miss. Bishop Takes Knight is an unputdownable tale that takes the paranormal and makes it matter of fact. I’m glad I took a chance on this book – it’s a bit of a departure for me. But 2020 is all about expanding my horizons in reading. I highly recommend you pick this one up too.
