Good reads Blurb:

Built on the bones of an ancient city, modern-day Everstrand is where master mage, Rowan, has set up his enchantment shop. When not hanging out with his werewolf best friend, Caleb, or studying, he dabbles in herbology and the controversial practice of blood magic. A prodigy who has already earned two masters, Rowan’s bound and determined to reach the distinction of grandmaster, a mage who obtains a masters in all five Schools of Magic.

Shaw works for the Inquisition, the organization charged with policing the magical races collectively known as magicae. Recently, it has come under scrutiny as magicae begin to disappear and reports of violence increase. With secrets of his own on the line, Shaw is willing to risk everything to find out just what is going on behind all the locked doors.

When Rowan and Shaw are entangled in each other’s worlds, it becomes evident that their hearts are as much at risk as their lives. They must find the truth and stop a conspiracy before it’s too late.

The review

This is a delightful beginning to the inquisition trilogy. Casey Wolfe has created a beautiful world with lovely characters.

In the beginning we are introduced to Rowan a nerd on his way to become become a grand master mage. His best friend/ live in dog Caleb 🐺 is a lovable werewolf who is ultra protective of Rowan and Shaw the hot stuff inquisitor.

Rowan and Caleb become friends with Shaw and thus begins an adventure to save lives.

The world Casey created is beautiful, from afar Everstrand  looks like an ideal place but when you get close you discover it’s a lot darker than you think ahem *coughs*  ‘Murica. There’s a scene where Caleb and Rowan are discussing about a political candidate and i wrote down, ”okay this scene reminds me of orange juice in the white house”

The major theme of the book was family Caleb, Rowan and Shaw bonded on different levels. You’ll get a warm fuzzy feeling when you read how the characters interact, i know Rowan is the star of the show in this book but Caleb has a special place in my heart. 

 One final thing i appreciated was the writing style let me explain. There were scenes were you would hold your breathe and expect something bad to happen but it didn’t why did i appreciate this? She did not try to force an unnecessary plot twist but by my unicorn bottom when the twist happened i screamed  

I recommend this book if you love that friendship/family bond.

As always spread rainbows,

Booked Unicorn
