Redclaw Origins, Book Two
Five of five stars
In 2020, I joined a FB-based Reader Challenge, The Winter Games, for the first time. Bishop Takes Knight by McKenna Dean was one of the books I decided to try though it wasn’t really my genre. I became a fan.
Here’s what’s different about Reclaw Origins: like many a thriller, it involves undercover agents, intrigue, and mayhem. Like not so many thrillers, it also encompasses the paranormal. And that – at the time – was a departure for me. Not anymore!
Join me in Book Two of this compelling series. It reads perfectly well as a standalone, but I guarantee that these characters will figuratively force you to go back and learn more.
Rhett and Peter – Bishop and Knight – are off on an undercover assignment, out in suburbia, far from Rhett’s milieu of city life. They’ve “bought” a house and are “setting up housekeeping” as man & wife. Because there are strange happenings afoot in this little slice of suburbia, and Redclaw means to get to the bottom of it.
A bit madcap, Dean’s story amuses in equal measure to the surprise and shock that it packs. And it keeps you riveted through it all. Suffice to say that I ran it through – page one to page last – in one day. There was no way I was leaving it till I knew how they resolved it. With an unexpected flourish – at least I wasn’t expecting it – Dean has managed once again to keep me waiting with bated breath for the next instalment. It promises to be a doozie!
