Bishop’s Gambit – McKenna Dean

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!

Pick both of these great reads up here:
